Any thoughts or interest in Rock River's LAR-47?

I really like this "AR" in 7.62X39. They seem to have addressed the problems on past attempts. Pretty pricey still IMHO.
You don't like the round?
I'll buck traditional aspects here....the AK-47 is an Assault Weapon....the SKS is an Assault Rifle in a carbine package.....one has to consider the "assault cartridge".
Can you dig a little deeper than that? I am quite confused. What do you see as the classification differences between the 2 other than the obvious media made up "assault weapon" term.
I would agree if it were not for ammo. availability (readily) between the 2.

An Assault rifle is meant for aimed fire with the capability for rapid reloading in order to keep up sustained fire upon the target. it's a gray area. But an assault rifle w/o automatic capability is not an assault weapon.
Now anyone can argue.....fix bayonets on a Brown Bess, or an 186-something Springfield....guess what....you now have an an assault weapon....right!?
Granted this is very basic to you.....but I'm thinking of the ones that are just visiting this forum....eh!?
I was a little surprised to see DGI as opposed to a piston design though.
But then they have the rifle poop where it eats. That's just... dumb.
Ok, I was curious since you classified them differently and the sks and AK are basically suited for the same purpose and they made an SKS that takes AK mags. If you are talking currently available AK's then they will be semi auto just like the SKS. All of my AK's are just as accurate as any sks I have shot so other than the ease of disassembly and maintenance of the AK vs the sks there is really not much difference.
Comparing a full auto AK to the sks is a totally different situation. A full auto AK is an assault rifle. "Assault weapon" is a term thought up by the antis I the early '90's to justify getting those "dangerous semi automatic rifles"'off the streets.
Joe Biden is also a tool, but I wouldn't even think of assaulting anyone with him. just sayin'...:tooth:
This brought a picture to mind that I have that is way too inappropriate due to language to post here......
Ya ever been so mad, that you beat a m**********r with another m**********r?
