If your just talking about standing on a line casually shooting off hand at pop bottles with iron sights then by all means an SKS will do everything an AK can and it might even be a little more easy to shoot the SKS since its a little heavier(stable) and has a longer sight radius.

If your talking about actually using the gun in for say a defensive carbine course or if you were doing any type of dynamic shooting or wanted the gun as a personal defense carbine for your home then the AK's compact size, weight, ease of reloading, modularity(optics and rails) and maneuverability will give the AK a huge advantage.

Personally I think a small bore AK in 5.56 or 5.45 with the AK-74 style compensator REALLY puts the AK in another class because of how fast you can put accurate fire on target.
