    "can’t really customize a AK"
    Looks over at what you can actually put on a AK
    Me:"I call bullshit"

  2. RAKESH KASARAGOD on November 17, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    AK the legend 🙌👏😎

  3. JN on November 17, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    Great video! Enjoy your style and the way you describe the rifles.

  4. Houd Boucetta on November 17, 2021 at 7:33 pm

    Ak 74 looks more reliable than r15

  5. Khaos on November 17, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    Aks just give a better cool factor..and theyre a blast to shoot…ars make me sleepy lol…

  6. Wafu on November 17, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Brendon Herrera is a complete idiot. Don’t watch his trash. You want to learn about the AK? go watch Mishaco

  7. Private Weasley on November 17, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    If you wanna get technical most of the US military is still using the M16A4, with a few A3’s floating around

  8. Henry Of Skalitz on November 17, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    the 545 is necked down more aggressively and has the standard 7.62 x 39 casing just necked down thus giving it more pressure behind the bullet. the bullet is also longer making tumbling very common for that round.

  9. kkhankhalil on November 17, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    You are good to go with American Rifle (A.R). Love the Russian Girl but for the sake of America, you have a diff. choice. That punch of 5.45 is more reactive….

  10. TasJan91 on November 17, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    AR-15 is a more effective combat weapon.

  11. The Block on November 17, 2021 at 7:46 pm

    Is it really communist if it’s owned by an American? Kinda like the argument of calling these types of guns assault weapons when they are used for defensive or recreational purposes lol.

  12. Habitual Line Steppa on November 17, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    I like both, but prefer the AK. Main reasons….I don’t baby my guns. I only clean after using corrosive ammo. (Windex, soapy water, Motor oil.) 2nd reason, I ‘am poor. Steel case ammo is cheapo. It’s a weird irony… the AR being "America’s gun", but feeding your AR with 5.56, .223, 300 BLK will cost you out the ass. 3rd reason 7.62 x39 will drop most critters (2 and 4 legs) very well.

  13. Delta 3Two on November 17, 2021 at 7:48 pm

    Both my Kalashnikovs and ARmalites wear the same grip. I have replaced the original grips with TAPCO SAW grips. The TAPCO grip was/is available to fit AK or AR platforms. For me it is a excellent grip.

  14. Snipe Cox on November 17, 2021 at 7:49 pm

    20000 rds is impressive, although I haven’t shot that much and only shoot brass and own and love all my aks I have never had and problem s out of my BCM 13.5

  15. saurav Bisht on November 17, 2021 at 7:49 pm

    I wish we indian can also experience these 🥺 awesome weapons

  16. Richard Schwartz on November 17, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    Russia has the best guns

  17. g usmc on November 17, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    It’s hitting harder because of the steel core ammo on the 74. The Winchester is a 55 gr bullet and the 74 is 62 gr.

  18. Am duck on November 17, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    Finally someone who did ar15 vs ak74 and not ar15 vs ak47 it’s like comparing a bolt action to a musket it’s unfair

  19. Lucas Rutanen on November 17, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    An AR will fire dirty but they won’t fire dry

  20. Todd T on November 17, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    I like both platforms. Although, if AK’s are the most produced of all guns in history. Why are they way more expensive and ammo is scarce for them in the U S.? We Americans love guns. Every gun owner I know ones at least one AR. Can’t say that for the AK…

  21. Cloud CODM on November 17, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    The AK irl:deadly af!
    The AK in video games:useless😑

  22. Josh Smith on November 17, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    The same principle of the AK74 applies to the M16/AR: the US used the heavier .308/7.62 NATO round before switching to the 5.56 round to carry more ammo and lower weight carried.

  23. LOGAN7567 on November 17, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    Both are beautiful rifles

  24. Stanley Spurgeon on November 17, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    Now I’m gonna talk from experience I had 13 years experience with the AR platform as a national guardsmen my rifle was a m16a1 every time we would go to the range there was guys that had nothing but issues including me misfires failure feed trying to put two cartridges in the chamber at the same time and it’s like nobody gave a shit we’re gonna send you into combat with this shitty rifle I agree they have improved them but this is the biggest reason why I don’t own a AR platform because if I’m on my own I don’t want a weapon that’s going to fail because a little bit of dirt gets in it or a little bit of moisture gets in it from The dew in the air mix with some dirt and Gunpowder residue that doesn’t bother the AK 47 at all I knew a guy that claimed he hasn’t cleaned his Ak In three years and shooting that crappy Russian ammo now nobody’s going to go out fill there gun full of mud and try and shoot it that’s ludicrous but if the AK happens to fall in a mud pile and get clogged all you need to do is find a mud puddle or a stream somewhere and wash the big chunks out of it and the weapon will start to work unlike the AR if that happens you have to disassemble it and clean it thoroughly that is the difference that is why I own Ak over a AR Accuracy means nothing if the weapon won’t fire
    And listen what you just said the AK is used by almost everybody around the world what the hell are we missing is everyone in the world stupid or are we just not getting it I think we’re just not getting it
    And I solely believe if something ever went down in this country and I mean sliding sideways it’s going to be like Vietnam all over again there’s gonna be people lying dead with cleaning rod stuck in there AR Platforms and disassembled in various stages of cleaning
    In combat you don’t have time to clean your weapon you may not even have the equipment to clean your weapon think about that
    I’m gonna add one more thing I can also lubricate the AK platform on used engine oil and it’ll work just fine

  25. Jonah Patton on November 17, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    My first gun was an AK, I was an AK fanboy most of my life. I got my first AR about 2 years ago, and at first I wasn’t super impressed. Swapped the buffer for a hydraulic buffer, swapped the regular buffer spring for a tubb flat wire extra strength spring, and swapped the birdcage for a gnarly titanium muzzle break, and holy crap….. Kicks like a .22 now, I can mag dump with 0.18 second splits and keep every round in a fist sized group with the thing now.
    Still love AKs, a lot, but geez, a lighter, more accurate, and lower recoiling platform with a larger aftermarket and better ergonomics is hard to argue against.
    Compared to the 5.45? The 5.56 has greater muzzle energy, carries more energy down range, and has more kinds of bullet designs (frangible, polymer tipped, hollow points, soft points, open tipped match, armor piercing, solid copper rounds, FMJ etc) in a higher range of weights (45-77 grain options), it’s not even close, at least 7.62×39 has a couple advantages like barrier penetration. 5.45 loses in every category.

  26. rootical_vincebassie on November 17, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    Pretty sure you can customize an ak just like an ar. All you need is a rail and you can attach what ever you want. There’s some cool stuff out there if you really look. Still like the vid appreciate the upload😉

  27. INDIA PROPERTIES on November 17, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    AK king of King

  28. Thirteen Banger on November 17, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    I hate AR’s and M4’s because FUCK star chambers…

  29. Jake H on November 17, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    AKs are more gangster looking and AKs have a lot more different mag designs where the AR has all the same looking mags. My question when somebody says you can’t add as much stuff to the AK; What can’t you add to an AK that you actually need? You can add different stocks, flashlights, quad and picatinny rails, scopes, gas adjustable pistons ( which is really the only real upgrade you should add), different grips, muzzle brakes,etc. With all the modern variations of the AK today compared to 20 years ago, you can add pretty much anything you need. People just keep repeating that argument like they do with the accuracy argument saying AKs aren’t accurate which is complete BS. That’s on the shooter. I think Bc those two arguments have been around for so long, ppl are just used to repeating them. Also, ppl just add so much unnecessary crap to their ARs that are not necessary but mainly for looks. You can add everything you actually need to the AK. And I love ARs too but I prefer the old school colt commando design. Simple and bada$$. But when someone says you can’t add as much to an AK, I simply ask what can’t you add that you actually need? Mainly, ppl want to add for looks,

  30. USA on November 17, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    My Arsenal AK-74 was my go-to rifle for years but I sold it and I’m going all in on the AR now. Just makes more sense in America. No more cheap spam cans of 7N6 available. If the Wolf family of ammo dries up it’s over for that platform. Great vid. Cheers

  31. Haris The Proud Bosniak on November 17, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    The AK-47 is what we Bosniaks used in the war to put Serbian soldiers to sleep.We did not forget how they raped our children and women and commied Genocide.We do want revenge for such.

  32. Timber Cowboy on November 17, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    Fill pumpkin with water the will react better. Similar to watermelons

  33. Hunter Whitley on November 17, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    I love my ar15 being in the infantry it’s very easy to get comfortable but I love to shoot cheap 7.62×39

  34. Joseb Chakma on November 17, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    I like Ak 74 I am already subscribe your channel bro from Mizoram northeast India 🇮🇳

  35. Pradeep Thirumalai on November 17, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    AK is always better than any other guns

  36. Mick Don on November 17, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    Got a fucking Ak 47 from a store called *immaglockdealer on wickr* if you need yours you can get from them too

  37. Malcules on November 17, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    No customization on ak bullshit you can slap rails all over it

  38. furygamergg the pro gamer xd on November 17, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Are you a soldier or working with the with the soldier

  39. calin offgang on November 17, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Ar was trash until few modern modifications but AK is still a legend without a lot of modern mods ….Mikhail was a genius

  40. Vacuum Gaming on November 17, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    5.45 is the real Gucci caliber. Well, besides .300 BLK

  41. Air Shitter on November 17, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    I’m able to get 5.45. Not able to get 5.56 😭

  42. Snipe Cox on November 17, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Two great rifles to compare arsenal and BCM are both cream of crop

  43. Ants Punning on November 17, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    AK weight is higher, poor quality, not many supressor options, poor quality ammo, less possibilities to use different addons, for beginner harder to learn to use it without better training, bigger recoil, so overall, AK is piece of shit.

  44. SkillMethodz94 on November 17, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    Where did you get that ak 74 from and what model is it?

  45. Ruslan Wick on November 17, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Nice, non-biased video 🙂

  46. Levy Lacambra on November 17, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    You should have included the technical aspects of both guns, special features if there are, and issues as well, inorder to have a clearer comparison. Thanks u sir

  47. Tom Cumby on November 17, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    shoot the 62 grain penetrator in a 1in9 twist and c what it does in jell or ur favorite coyote. in the test in the 80’s nato would not allow the 1in9 because did not stabilize tracer and bullet tumble was inhumane

  48. 09 Phúc Hưng Lại on November 17, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    545 or 556 which is cheaper , please

  49. Don Juan on November 17, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    What gas do you use regular or premium? 🤔

  50. Otic Garten on November 17, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    7.62 all the way. You won’t survive that. 5.xx is trash no matter which rifle
