Slamming the 7.62x39mm cartridge into a lightweight AR platform has many advantages. Think about the weapons manipulation skills developed through years of owning the standard .223/5.56 AR… now those skills translate directly into a package that weighs the same but packs a significantly larger “punch”. How about ammunition price? Depending on location, 7.62x39 ammunition is roughly 40% cheaper then .223/5.56. More bang for your buck in 2 categories! Punch and price…what’s not to love? The kicker…the accuracy.
