I own an AK, and am selling it. I have over the years owned several AK's, a Beretta AR-70, HK 911, Beneli M1 super 90, Several AR-15's, Tec-9, etc. I ended up selling every one sooner or later.

After much consideration, the only "Assault" rifle I will ever need, I have had since my Dad gave it to me almost 3 decades ago, a Sears Ted Williams model 100 (streamlined Winchester model 94) lever action in .30-30. For the woods (or god forbid and urban enviroment or self defense situation if "it" hits the fan), this rifle is powerful, quick repeat shots, slim in profile, lightweight, and and easy to shoot in the prone position.

And it is a superb Deer rifle that I will pass on to my son.

I just wish I could find an unaltered K2 or DR200 with a low round count ...

An AR15 would be my choice. Mine are great weapons, I would trust them with my life.

OK Mods, why hasn't this thread been moved to the NFA forum? I know people on this board who will fall on their swords in protest of somebody innocently using the word "clip" but for some reason it is accepted for people to buy into the fraudulent use of the word "assault rifle" for semi auto guns.

Only one "assault rifle"?

Note that I am talking actual "Assault Rifle" (which is a valid term) here, and not the anti gunners "assault weapon" (which is not a valid term).

Assuming I could have any one assault rifle (and not concerned with the cost/legality), then there is only one I would choose, and it is one not mentioned by any of the other posters!

The original "assault rifle", the Sturmgewehr, the Stg 44! For the historical value, of course!

Thank you mods!

Now that the thread is talking about NFA guns as it should: if I had the money to buy an assault rifle and if new ones were legal for civilians in the US I think that an FN SCAR Mk 16 Mod 0 would be really cool.

The SCAR is not likely available unless the 1986 ban is overturned so for present NFA rules the best pick would be a classic M-16 wearing an M4 upper.

A really young soldier was traveling from Ft. Riley, KS and I asked him a simple question about a complex topic.

After asking him whether he had been in the "sandbox",
he said that he had spent 16 months in Iraq, so I considered his advice on actual 'field applications'' to be valuable and tested-certainly not a "shooting range commando". He had experienced self-defense and probably had used his "go bag" often.

Therefore my single question was whether he would prefer a Russian-designed rifle or the M-4, AR-15 type.
We had little time to chat and his only answer was "Well maybe, just one grain of sand will jam the rifles we had".

That's all he said and was maybe hesitant to elaborate.
Being interested in guns which are known to be durable under many conditions attracted me to either former combat carbines or those which are generally based upon military-style actions (i.e. SKS, Mosin...).

My RRA AR-15--and a bottle of CLP just to be safe . I have an AK and it might be dead-nuts reliable but I can't really optimally use the sights.

My M-14-E2 with the Smith Ent break and the Bata-Mag double drum. Almost 24 pounds, but -CENSORED--CENSORED--CENSORED- I not fast on my feet anyway.

Interesting. I wonder why he was so hesitant.

I finally decided...

I'll take a Valmet/Sako Rk95 folder, the best that the AK family could offer.

What did you think of the Tec-9? I have wanted one since I was a little kid. For no other reason than the looks. Now if it could plink reliably with FMJ, that might make me track one down (I had wanted a Mac or M-11/9 too, but even the good ones have to be babied to function right from what everyone says even proud owners, I don't care for that). From gathered info, it cycles right with the right type of mag and heavy ball, trigger action is fast, common issues are front sight weld misaligned, and something about the upper separating from the lower at the rear (and have seen some in movies with zip ties inexplicably cinching the back portion).
I dunno, just love the looks of it. Might be the "gangsta" in the gangster gun collection I'm working on.

The more I use M4A1 the more I like it. Yes AK is best known for reliability, and I have have been very partial to it BUT them Americans have finally lived up to their reputation and invented M4A1, which is vastly improved from M4. M4 I had before use to FTF a lot. This has not so far. Fires smoother then any other weapon. I mean this is a beauty. It requires cleaning more than Ak, and thats why I am keeping this for myself and AKs for guards. Since it is hard to keep checking if guards are cleaning them regularly or not.


My next quest is to get Styer AUG A1 and shoot 10000 rounds and determine its performance.
