If you could have an AK-pattern rifle in any reasonable calibur (i.e., not .50BMG, 2mm Kolibri, etc.) what would you choose?
Just don't use steel core FMJ.
.416 barret [not .50bmg]
.50ae [because fuck wallets]
.22 [just not a shit]
.45 acp [murica]
9mm [I am aware of the AKX, but I want gas blowback, not short-recoil]
7.62x25 [modern ppsh]
7.62x54r on PKM belts [fuck you]
7.62 TOK for me too, but I prefer the triangle sidefolder to the under folder.
45-70 (and use FMJ ammo because i can) 50-100 and .700 nitro express so I can fulfill my space marine fantasy
