Because the gun is meh until you get stock. (and it sucks doing the no perk/attachment challenge with it)
However after you get stock, then that gun IMO is very good. Actually I think it's in my top 3 for most used of all time...
I very rarely agree so emphatically with a poster on here, but you're right. Without any aids it's an awful weapon, it takes longer to get the no perks/no attachments camos than it took me to get them for any other weapon.
call me crazy but I like the scar irons better than the an. also without using a perm unlock on the AN you will never be using it unless you dont prestige or have hit master. the recoil has never bothered me or become unmanageable. really though for me it is just a gun that "feels good" to use and has no pressing issues. I use with stock only or stock/silencer fyi and i got this gun to gold quicker than any other
edit: forgot to mention that this gun makes hardcore mode its b****
