Well I almost bit the bullet and bought an AR yesterday. Wanted something different and thought I should give it a shot since everybody and their mother has one so they can't be THAT bad. Walked into the gun store and picked up an S&W M&P Sport, pretty good quality rifle with a good reputation, looked over and saw a WASR-10, brand new 2019 production. Put the S&W down, bought the AK and left lol. I was close...almost got one. I will say I really enjoy the iron sights on the M&P over the WASR's, completely different style of iron sight but much easier to use.
