Apparently the modern AR meets the reliability of the AK.
The thing about the AK series is that the quality varies significantly depending on who manufactured it and for whom and when.

Nothing new... The AR-18 has been around since 1963, these rifles are just putting the gas piston system in a AR-15 package. Besides, there are American companies that actually make gas piston ARs that are superior to the HK products. If I had the dough to burn I'd buy a P-308 carbine right now.

The downside is cost, only Switzerland or Luxembourg would spend that much on an individual weapon.

Dont make the mistake to see Turkey as a third world country...

It's a very advanced civilization with a very proud people. They have a good level when it comes to technology. The little I've heard, they make their own helicopters and such...

It's not the level of Russia/japan/US... But they are good when it comes to make weapons...

Dont laugh at them because they are from Turkey...

There was a time when France was mocking Germany...

Why would you laugh at anyone/thing for being from Turkey in the first place? What are you, a five year old?
