Best Answer

The AK-47 is a Russian made weapon, and it uses a larger round than the M4(the type of assault rifle most US S.W.A.T. uses). The M4 uses a .223 round which is a blend of stopping power, and accurucy, whereas the AK-47 round is designed for mainly stopping power, ensuring a dead, or badly injured target.

I hope that could answer your question.

well the ak is used by Russians and by Iraq but swat do not use them im pretty sure m4s or m16 OR mp5 a SAS made gun and also these three weapons are used in the marines and sas
