    True, there are some machine guns that are quite accurate; when compared to other machine guns. In comparison to a rifle that will not be as accurate. Actually the AK47 is in reality a true machine gun. This is easily verified by the fact the first position on the selector switch is Full Auto. Now look at the M-16 or actually pretty much any other Assault rifle. The first position is Semi-Auto because the role of a rifle is precision. The M-16 is a rifle with full auto capability whereas the AK is machine gun with a semi-auto capability. The AK is almost always referred to as a rifle. This is because it looks like a rifle, but that is not it's intended role. It's also referred to as a rifle because it uses a magazine and it is not belt fed or use box-mags or mag pouches common with most machine guns.
    You made a valid point that also reaffirms my point. The AK's lack of precision does stem from it's pencil thin barrel, backing up the point that it was never designed as a rifle...which is for accuracy. That is the reason why the first notch on the selector switch is full auto; to spray a general area and keep heads down an suppress fire so you can advance, or to look really bad ass when you're robbing a bank in downtown Hollywood wearing all black with ski masks. Sweeeeeeet.
    Actually I saw a test a while back, some American company was making small amounts of high quality RPK's and when they did the accuracy test it was surprisingly quite a bit accurate. Not sure what ammo they used though. Maybe someone can let us borrow their full auto RPK for some testing? :machinegun2:

    Promise to return it........eventually

    True machine guns are belt fed and fire a full size cartridge.The reason the AK has the semi-auto selector in the fully down position is thought to have been because of the mostly poorly trained troops it was issued to.When in the heat of battle it would be switched it all the way down,so they didn't unintentionally do a mag dump just because they were getting fired at.I don't think how the selector is oriented has anything to do with whether a weapon is a machine gun or not.An AK is an assault rifle capable of select fire,which means it will go full auto,but it was not intended to do sustained full auto if it did it would also fire from an open bolt to avoid cook-offs and to help keep it cooler.

    Regardless of BC, once a round goes transonic to subsonic, stability maybe lost and accuracy degraded. Granted a higher BC helps retain velocity and delays this effect as compared to a lower BC, but every round runs out of gas eventually.

    Re: What is the best distance to ZERO my 7.62X39 XCR?

    Howdy y'all,

    I have been following the "zero" conversations with much interest, and like the thought of having the 50/100 yard zero for my iron sights as that will be quite applicable for the types of target shooting/ranges I can expect to do.

    With that said however, I have been lookin @ scopes and have found the PSOP 6x24 as the reticle is calibrated for the 7.62x39 round. I am reading the users manual, and it calls for the sight to be zero'ed at 100m, and the aiming chevrons can be used for 200 & 300 meters.

    http://www.kalinkaoptics.com/rifle-s...r-version.html

    Pardon my newbie questions, but in order to zero the scope @ 100 meters, and be able to use the aiming chevrons, should I be zeroing the 100 meter at the beginning of the arc or at the tail? I have not purchased the scope yet, but does anybody have any experience with this scope?

    Thanks!

    If you zero any glass I always cut paper at 25m first. That'll get you close on the 100m line. Just make sure you have the dials where they need to be when you zero them out after getting your BZO. The chevrons will keep you close but they may need fine tuning.
    When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose.

    The two loudest noises are a BANG when you thought there should be a CLICK and a CLICK when you thought there should be a BANG.
