    SEALs *used* AKs in a war 50+ years ago, that’s not the same thing as “SEALs use them.” There’s a plethora of reasons they used them, not all were because of reliability. For example, if behind enemy lines, ammo can be resupplied off of enemy dead. Modern day SOF use a lot of different weapons, and train on everything they might encounter. It doesn’t mean the AK is their primary weapon, which is what you made it sound like.

    the M16/AR15 was not the same weapon in 1967 as it is today. Everyone knows it had reliability issues, most of which was caused by ammunition/powder.

    “AK’s have failed”…that’s like saying “Shit has smelled good before.” Maybe. But rarely. Stoppages are a way of life for AR’s, an occasional thing for AK’s. Is the bullet going twice as fast? Let’s face it, I have some 154 grain soft nosed bullets. Probably travelling at least 4/5ths the speed of your 77 grainer. Twice the weight. Half again as large in diameter. Ain’t gonna throw mine in the mud. I have used both. Clean ’em, lube ’em, put ’em side by side and fire till they stop. See which one fails first. You know as well as I do the AK will still be running long after the AR freezes up. Heavier bullet, larger diameter, way more dependable. You know that.

    there’s a reason the 300blk out is gaining steam. and it’s not only because it suppresses well. it also has very similar ballistics to the 7.62 x39.

    (also the russians switched to 5.45 because weight, and recoil under full auto)

  5. Mike (verified owner)

    Reliable? Aks have failed and the mudtest showed that. Ballistics better than 5.56 in sbrs? Debatable. 77 grain 5.56 out of a 10.3 is still going faster than 7.62×39 out of this 12.25 barrel. Yeah it’s cool and a beast gun but there’s a reason even the russians moved away from 7.62×39 and into 5.45.

  6. Larry (verified owner)

    own 2 ar’s and 5 ak’s.There is a reason and it’s not the price;if I want reliable is ak all the way why do you think seals use them.The 2 ar’s are 762 and because of design both break bolts after about 2000 rounds.I don’t need this when SHTF.Also have USA Draco and it purrs like wildcat .Just sayin…

    I love this revolver. It is lightweight fits easily inside the waistband or outside. I have several holsters for it. I wanted a carry gun with no external hammer to potentially snag on something when you’re trying to access it at that critical moment. It takes some getting used to in terms of accuracy though. At least for me. At close range I’m deadly with it. I can’t hit the side of a barn with it past 10 yards.

    I have had mine about 2 years. When I first got it, I notice that there were some issues with reliability, with the first 200-400 rounds. After that it has been a flawless rifle, and I’m well into the thousands of rounds through it. Somewhere between 4000-5000. I think the reliability issues came from the sharp angles on the hammer-face. Once I shot it more it smoothed it out a bit, and it stopped catching. I will be buying more from PSA. They made me love the AK design. I have used ak’s before but never owned one until this rifle. I admit I buy a lot of Gucci guns, so I’m really happy PSA has delivered a product that encourages me to give the cheaper brands a chance

    My preference has been Ruger. This time I could not locate a Ruger & this S&W became available thru Palmetto Armory. Decided to buy & also it would be good in Silver to easily I.D. from my Black Rugers. Was pleasantly surprised that it actually fits my hand much better. I now prefer shooting this S&W better than the several Rugers I have located around my house/vehicles. It also fits my shoulder harness nicely. Happy Owner!

    I like the accuracy with the option of single action that you have with the hammer exposed, compared to the same model with a hidden hammer, which is double action only. This would be an excellent gun to carry. Very fun to shoot too.
