    I agree. I'd be equally interested in seeing the results with a normally lubricated AR with it's dust cover open.
    The AR in my video here is "normally lubed". I run my ARs wet, I don't run them dry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8SSQ_wIG4o

    You can see the oil that leaked out of the gun over the course of the test on the outside. Running it dry it wouldn't have made it through a fraction of the shooting it did. While oil/lube does attract dust, it also allows the gun to function with more fouling.

    You can also see that a significant amount of sand/debris did still make it to the inside of the gun.

    I still like the AK better than the AR from my experience with both plinking in the sand pits and ranges where I shoot. Everyone should stop bellyaching about the test and learn from it as I have.
    I'm glad you found some value in the video. I prefer to shoot an AK for fun too, and use a Saiga 12 in competition alongside an AR15. They both have their places.

    Other times I opted for an AK, same conditions, but I always took an AK when resupply and support was not an option.

    This is not going to turn into an AR vs AK thread, that horse has been beat to death and we're not going to waste our time with that.
    i know i've said this before, but it is ALL about the tactical mustache

    I believe phreakmode has hit the nail on the head and I see no use in letting this thread go on.

    Take this from the video; Extreme ammounts of dirt in the action will affect performance.
