They are, but in semi auto at close range (100 metres) the AK wins hands down
This is exactly what I was saying Furthermore, the point of this thread was experience from those who've actually fired a live round or two. I can copy and paste articles with the best of them and cite all sorts of stats and other bullshit. I KNOW about the new US 6.8mm round. I know blah, blah, blah. I know squad based tactics and automatic fire. I'm not trying to rehash any previous battles in terms of absolutely the best version of either of these weapons nor anything else.
With the exception of MB's input, which is at least educated and was to the point, I DON'T CARE about the rest.
As I said, I've got two civvie weapons: An M-16 (A2 as MB has surmised, and a Bulgarian AK-47. Both are perfectly legal in the states, and are semi-auto.

Are not helping in the slightest.

Thanks dude, I was trying too.
