Grip vs Extended Mags for the AK-12 and R5

I run the AK-12 with a suppressor and I keep switching between grip and extended mags. Which do you think is better? For the R5 I feel like the extended mags are almost necessary and I don't like the iron sights so I usually use a red dot. Is grip or extended mags more useful? I'm trying to get used to the iron sights so I can use both.

For the AK, the grip is more benificial as it has the capacity advantage over the R5, but the recoil is a little jumpy out to the mid to long distance.
For the R5, the recoil settles into a nice pattern, so extended mags is a must, as those extra 12 bullets will help out a lot more than you realise.
As for scopes, try the VMR. You can flip it on the fly and can really help your target accuisitions, as the R5 irons are meh at best.

Grip would definitely be advisable on the AK12. Extended mags for the R5 as there's very little recoil from it due to the low fire rate - I'm actually using both of these set-ups and love them :)
