Yes from what you've seen. AV opens up a whole new world of possibilities. That's why you need AV to be able to access it!
Also +1 to brokenwings. Stock a sniper rifle is the same as an AEG, if you truly want to develop yourself in a sink or swim way try playing with a stock sniper rifle you'll have to outsmart and outsneak other players not to mention get up close because the accuracy isn't going to be like a fully upgraded VSR with a TBB, perfect compression, and be more bang on than an AEG when shooting.
I'm obviously talking about BA rifles but for something like a Dragunov there's no reason why you can't keep it running at stock speed (I assume somewhere in the range of 360-380 FPS) and either act as a "DMR" or play as an assaulter with a Dragunov (although it might be a bit unwieldy with such a long rifle, like using a full length M16 in a CQB situation instead of an M4 with collapsible stock).
