AR vs Mosin

It has long been debated, among the elite shooters of the world, which firearm is the most effective, accurate, and reliable. Last weekend I set out to prove them wrong. I can finally make the claim on who would win in this contest of champions and settle the debate for good!

How does this prove anything?

Two different shooters, using different shooting positions, and only five rounds fired from each gun............how does this prove which one is

Why aren't we allowed to see him pull the trigger?

And yes, The US military is very seriously considering using the mosin nagant because it is essentially the same rifle, but they can get them for $100

I like Mosin's. Fun gun to shoot, but no where in the class of the AR/M16.

The Mosin has its place, as a classic, vintage military bolt action rifle, and shooting in CMP GSM matches.

But the M16 has better accuracy, shoots just as far (accuratly). And is reliable.

Some how I don't see any military trading their M16s for Mosins.

But as I said, the Mosin is a fun gun to shoot. With a good quality barrel and good handloads its fairly accurate.

After 6 years in the Marines, 2 in Vietnam, I have seen how easy it is to take a AR out of a fight. Mosins ALWAYS work, AK's ALWAYS work. I own AK's. Two years in a jungle I NEVER saw an AK fail.
