Quite possibly the most versatile rifle, ever.
How is it versatile?
I usually pick this playing SoF 2 cuz I usually get kills with my nade launcher
Good gun, but is it true that an AK 47 (74) is more accurate than this gun? Maybe I should stop playing video game and pick up a real gun, whatcha fink?
The AK sucks for accuracy beyond ~150-200yds with a lethal range of only ~300. 7.62x39R is an intermediate round and made for short range modern warfare.
Where it shines is in it's reliability. You can drag one through the mud, snow, wherever you need to go, and when you shoulder it, you will still hear the resounding crack of a round being fired.
I remember somebody on TV mentioning how he left his AK in a locker for 3 months after a long day of shooting. When he opened the locker the bolt was rusted shut. He kicked it open with his boot, then fired it no prob.
I like those old 7.62x39R rifles though because ammo is cheap cheap cheap... Plus the variety available to the civilian market is great.
I have a Bushmaster shorty flattop A3. I have an A.R.M.S mount with a propoint laser site on top and an M6 tatical light/laser on the hand guard. So it's basically a semi version of an M4. Going to send it off to Wilson Combat and have a birdcage flash hider permanently put on the barrel, mine is a post-ban heavy barrel.
You have two lasers? Or a ProPoint red dot sight?
Propoint red dot site on top and laser on bottom.
Im part of a new SWAT program wiht the USCG and i have plenty of experience wiht that rifle..i love it...the people up in quantico who made are gods
I shoot service rifle out to 300 regularly with A2 sights (A2>A1)
I hate M4 sights to though ( short radius ) I'm gonna build a dissipator for just that reason
I've shot both extensivly and don't mind either one really. 7.62x39 doesn't seem to beat me up as much as .308 IMHO. I kinda like the extra power of 7.62/.308 though. I think one of my next toys is gonna be a FAL, HK or HK clone.
I have no real problem with the sights themselves and like the A2 set up. I don't like the shorty's sight radious. It's too short IMHO. I want to build a Dissipator for just this reason, and cause I need the longer fore grips.
Nothing really any other preban gun couldn't do with a little cash spent on it. They're nice battle weapons cos of the RIS rails (available from KAC for about $300), lots of optics options from Trijicon and Aimpoint, GenIII or better NOD scopes, Gemtech suppressors can thread right onto the birdcage, barrel is cut for the M203 or the KAC Masterkey and they're a rather handy ~35" OAL with the stock extended.
It's basically just a plain old AR15 carbine with all the go fast goodies, nothing is different internally. Actually, Bushmaster even makes many of the military M4's, since Colt can't fill the whole contract.
