First off I wanna say Semper Fi. I'm a Marine with 3 combat deployments (2 to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan) and during my time over seas I have learned that AK rifles work. I am a big time AR guy and have that peice down pack, but me and my dad (SgtMaj Ret. '68-'98) have both been shot at enough by the AK to know it is dependable and are both looking to kick open the door into that world. I just wanna know what your opinion is about more modern day upgrades to the AK. I have been looking at a lot of thisngs from Midwest Industries and I'm a fan of a lot of their AR products. If there is anything you can speak on regarding upgrades for the AK I would love to hear your opinion. We are looking for rail systems, optic mountings, the works. I have picked up many of them and couldn't help but notice they can be better. Thanks for doing what you do and hope to hear back from you soon.
