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

No. Only teams from England and Wales.

It depends on the specific mission. Both groups operate and are trained differently.

There are 30 teams in MLB and around 100 or so minor league teams.

Because they need backup teams and there is two teams in every country that they can play against.

Depends. The original military AK47 is capable of fully automatic fire. In the US, Federal law requires it be registered as a machine gun. However, most AK47s sold in the US are semiautomatic. MOST states do not require registation of rifles.

Obviously, the marines are a branch of the US military, wheras the SWAT aren't, so the marines have better funding, hence better and newer firearms. Both may utilize the same weapons such as the AR15(M16). Swat however, uses sub machine guns for close encounters opposed to Marines and their use of the M4 in close quarters. So I say yes. Also the marine sniper uses an M40, while SWAT uses the Remington 700 which is notoriously known for firing without a trigger pull. One such incidence happened before a raid from police forces using the weapon. It has been the subject of controversy and was covered in an NBC segment titled, "Remington Under Fire" that will leave you shocked. Another difference in favor of marines is the use of an automatic shotgun as a opposed to swat pump action.
