Default AK 47 versus Sniper

I had a discussion with a friend of mine concerning which of these two weapons would win during a combat.He pretends that the AK 47 could beat the Sniper in a battlefield around 300m long where both know their enemy location,suggesting that you can trick the sniper and take advantage of his distraction and you can dodge the bullets by moving fast.My opinion is that the AK guy doesn't stand a chance,because he can't show himself in the sniper's target,this meaning he would be dead.
I request you opinion,because definitely you know more about this problem than we know.Thank you!

Lets see, a grunt with an AK and a trained sniper? My money would be on the sniper. They've got patience like I could never have and the ability to blend into their environment like a chameleon. Don't think the guy with the AK would know what hit him.

I'd bet on the guy with the tank.

Give the AK guy a full 30rd mag and the sniper 3 rds. My money is on the sniper. 300 meters is a stretch for an AK.

Hands down... Sniper. What some of those guys are willing to do to get their mark is freaking scary. The have the patience of the dead in some cases and are willing to wait days for their target.

Who said the sniper did not have an ak also. I think it all depends on training and situation. Our (usa) snipers are well trained. Red Jacket made a AK sniper rifle.

A sniper is trained with a lot of different types of tools... Once you understand the tool they can do some pretty amazing things at distance.

Now if the sniper is going up against someone like a Navy Seal or a Ranger that would be interesting to see.

Quoted for truth.

The only way an AK even in the hands of a good soldier would be better than a Sniper rifle in the hands of a trained sniper would obviously be in tight quarters
