One of my coworkers jokes about his AK; he says he occasionally washes it out with the garden hose & uses an air compressor to blow-dry it after.
I typically spend as much (or more) time cleaning after I shoot as I do sending rounds downrange. I'm a bit OCD with my Bushmaster XM
I love mine. Fun to shoot, eats up the shittiest cheapest ammo available without complaint. I put an EOTech 512 on it which is more than sufficient for optics.
I baby my AR. It's like Cinderella. The AK is the ugly stepsister.
