Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

gun Ukraine's New AK-M16 Mashup Rifle Is Symbolic of the Country's Morphing Strategic Reality

Quote:
The Ukrainian military has received the first of its new US-made WAC-47 rifles, a derivative of the American-designed M16 rifle that chambers the Soviet-era 7.62x39mm cartridge. Ukraine is primarily looking to get the guns as part of a push to modernize its forces and to make it easier for its troops to work together with foreign units, especially members of the NATO alliance, but in doing so they're also sending a clear political message to Russia.
Wouldn’t say no if given the chance to own one.

I would rather go 7.62x39 on a AR than go 300BO.

I guess that really depends on if your wanting to suppress it & be quiet. I'll stick with my .300 Whisper.

Due to the heavy taper the 7.62x39 never feeds right in an AR unless you get a lower that uses AK rounds.

I couldn't find anywhere in the article if they are direct impingement or piston driven. Anyone know?

It would almost have to be DI, or you would see the gas tube and piston assembly through the rail.
ETA: Yup, it's there in the artucle, right under the youtube video. DI...
[s]I'm surprised they went with the STANAG type magwell instead of the AK mag style.[/s] Those funky mags are just odd, and AK mags are littering the countryside.

AHA, they want to move them to 5.56 down the road, which would be a mag and barrel change away with the STANAG setup...

The plan is to eventually drop 7.62x39mm entirely and adopt the NATO standard 5.56x45mm.
