Top 5 Best Assault Rifles

The fellas over at The Firearms Blog put together this cool top five video. Here’s what they had to say:

An assault rifle has to meet a certain set of criteria: It must be select-fire and use an intermediate cartridge. In this video we explain what our favorites are, factoring in accuracy, controllability, and of course how easy it is to shoot.

Also I anticipate this, so let me state it here: The AK is not included because a select fire AK is not controllable nor user friendly, even to an experienced shooter. This is a myth perpetuated by Hollywood and whoever else, but they are just brutal to run. Also had to ding it for a myriad of other reasons that may be hit on in another video. (Puts on flamesuit)

Hell, if this video gets 500 thumbs up, Patrick and Alex will shoot an AK74 until it catches on fire or blows up. Whichever comes first 🙂

    This is the one they missed. Read and judge for yourself. You can cet a US semi auto 551version for a few grand. Mags are spendy. I hate the AK style mag release.
    A fine alternative is the gas piston driven Sig 556 which has AR 15 type controls and takes any ar 15 mag. Flawless!
    The newer SI version is now avail.
