Only issue I ever had was bent firing pins.. so kept spares.
The AK was vastly superior.. loved it. Although, a bit inaccurate in comparison to the M16. Can't have it all though.
For a pistol, can't go wrong with a Glock. Also liked Walther - you can use it and tell people "I'm Bond. James Bond."
You're just an old 'Nam fart.
The new M16 A4 is a badassed killer, Bro'. Lightweight, fast, adjustable to any body frame...and no more jamming issues. Ak's rock for reliability and punch, but they never...ever touched the 16's for accuracy and now they don't for reliability either, plus we can hump twice the ammo.
