The debate between these two legendary guns will never end. Leave your comment below and explain why you feel the way you do.
One single weapon doesn't win wars except for maybe an atomic bomb. And furthermore just because a country lost a war it's never because of one weapons performance. Its usually politics that win a war....and its usually politics that keep soldiers from using certain tactics or weapons that could win the war.
Only an idiot would say the US lost Vietnam because the M16 "jammed" in the jungle. If that is the case then Russia should have won the 1980's Afghanistan war since the AK is so reliable? One single rifle platform doesn't win or lose a war. Politics wins wars.
