What is the difference between an AR-15, AR-10 and an AK 47 rifle?
AR-15 is a lighter-weight rifle designed to shoot a smaller .223 round than the 7.62x51 mm AR-10 rifle that came before it. Both are in demand today. An AK 47, SKS, or just "Kalashnikov" is a style of gas-operated, 7.62×39mm rifle developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov.
What is the difference between an AR-15 and an M16 or Machine Gun?
Automatic, or "machine guns", have a selective fire button permitting an operator to choose between 3 modes: semi-automatic, safe, and either 3 round burst or fully automatic, depending upon the model. The civilian semi automatic AR-15 rifle requires one pull of the trigger for each shot.

The AK47 became popular because of its multiple benefits which range from design, mass production, and size. The AK47s design is light, compact, and simple to maintain and clean because it was initially made for soldiers who wore gloves in cool winter to easily repair and operate. The AK47s average life span will range from 20 - 40 years depending upon usage and the weather conditions it was exposed to. With reliability will come a price of accuracy. AK47 was built for brief range engagement within mass infantry fire. The iron sight upon the AK47 is adjustable and its calibration is set a couple of hundred meters.
