    AR-15 Vs AK is kind of emblematic of the cold war.

    The meme is that the AK is the low tech, easy to produce solution with it's stamped design and broader design tolerances.
    However stamping was very much an old WW2 style industrial process.
    The stamped AK design was likely highly influenced by German WW2 stamping techniques used for the MG-42, MP-40 and STG.

    The aluminium injection molded AR design took advantage of new production techniques and materials that seemed advanced at the time, but ultimately scaled just fine whilst producing a lighter rifle.

    It shows how the USSR failed to advance it's industry beyond the 1950s and 60s, failing to keep up with advances in productivity In the west, relying on cheap internal energy costs to avoid structural reforms.

      Don't AKs require some degree of hand fitting, also? Or am I mistaken

        the headspacing of barrels is reminiscent of earlier designs but its no different from any hk roller delay in terms of "hand fitting". the soviets couldnt into standardization because every factory had to fill a quota and damned if the parts they put out were a thou out of spec. every factory built a very slightly different rifle, hence why soviet guns are usually catagorized by what factory made them. same with tanks and aircraft meanwhile you can unscrew any 2 m16 barrel nuts and swap the barrels and they will be perfectly headspaced

      The AR was basically built on WW2 machining technology, just aeronautical technology instead of legacy heavy industry tech like stanped guns.

          No, zoomers are just moronic and think "boomer" means "old" the same way they think "Fud" means "boomer who is wrong about guns I like". X and millenials really lucked out with just how profoundly stupid Z and Alpha are, they'll be toiling in the mud for their daily allotment of bug protein gel while still blaming the perfidious boomer who has been rotting in the ground for a decade

          You guys know what? Maybe they should just use the Sig Ammo design and apply it to the 5.56.
          All we need is stronger internals. Way cheaper than making a "New Rifle".

            Kek. Is this finally being espoused on /k/ now? Glad you guys are finally seeing the light.

            That’s exactly what should have happened. External ballistics and penetration characteristics don’t change but you retain the weight and capacity of 5.56.

            But the army demanded a caliber of 6.8mm, so we get a big and heavy rifle chambered in a big and heavy cartridge.

            Yup. OPs point stands. Stoner solved rifles. Everything that came after him is either an AR15 or an AR18 derivative. That’s what “piston AR” is.

        Make it look cooler. Just giving it an integrated optic would improve the aesthetics by at least 20%. More importantly I want the fish gun future that was promised when I was a child, frick the AR and every last millennium design why do we choose to live in the ever present past? Why do we let the days go by with nothing really changing, just going for miniscule permutations on the present? What ever happened to our dreams of being on Mars within a decade? Where's the computer guided smart guns? Where's the AIs that will jerk me off in my suit of power armor?
