    AR. An AK should be 7.62x39.

    AKs in .223 don't do much for me unless it's a Beryl. I'd say go for AR-15 and take advantage of the round.

    Yep. best to get the rifle that the cartridge was designed around. Or at least the one with the longest history with the round.

    AK's in 5.45x39 are acceptable as well, but if you're going to get a .223. Minnus whale get an AR.

    AR. An AK in .223 has all the disadvantages of that round, but none of the advantages of the AR platform.

    Plus, .223 is fucking expensive.

    Yep, another vote to the AR. I've got my AK, she's in 7.62x39, and all is right with that chunk of my world. If I want to pop .223's, it should be from an AR.
