Obviously, with good optics and decent ammo the AK is reasonably accurate (though I know that the AR will best it at longer ranges).

I have several AR's and several AK's. I much prefer the ergonomics of the AR but I still prefer the AK overall. I can understand why many prefer the AR though.

Thanks again
I agree both are excellent guns and it depends on what you value more and what your needs are.
