Please Mr. Brilliant, tell me where I went wrong in comparing two rifles that played major roles in ALL of the wars fought by communists.
I compare the two because they served the same purpose. If I'm arming an army of peasants, I'd prefer the simplicity of logistics associated with ammo on stripper clips rather than magazines. The only advantages I can see in the AK are 30 round mags (which some of us Californians have from way back when) and cheap production. Everything else seems to go to the SKS, and the 30 round mags are a beeyotch out of the prone position.
