Analysis

Ak 5 was first introduced to EN by way of a limited doll for chapter 9. Ak 5 and FF FNCAR share similar base stats, the only notable difference is Ak 5 has 2 higher base RoF.

Her one big difference is just her tile buff which in most cases actually docks some points for her. Her tiles are good for an offtank but for it to hit the offtank she'd have to occupy the position where you generally have a middle buffer AR or HG. This means that if she's on the tile 1 or 7 position, it means her tile buff does nothing while FF FNCAR's actually buffs Evasion. Unless of course if you're running SR-3MPSMG on 5 for some reasons.

Ak 5's next issue is her RoF, by default her and FF FNCAR is the same frame (refer to the Concepts tab for this), if she gets buffed with RoF, 2 RoF generally isn't enough to push her to a lower frame rule than FF FNCAR which makes their DPS esentially pretty equal. In the cases where she does hit a lower frame rule then she is for sure better but for her investment (limited doll at chapter 9), It's doubtful you'd need to invest in one more AR that's only marginally better than FF FNCAR in damage.

While AK 5 is most likely the "best" of the default limited doll drops, she's still not much of an upgrade from FF FNCAR, especially given that you most likely already have some good ARs by the time you attempt chapter 9. Her awkward tile buff and how far her acquirable chapter is, makes her a hard one to recommend. If you're truly in need of another FP AR then by all means, but she's an optional pick at best and generally Not Recommended for most at this point in the game. You're better off using FF FNCAR or Gr G41AR at this point in the game but she is usable.
