Too bad he can't use assault cannons or dual-wield pistols....
The Cunning will count for the same amount of bonus damage and crit as the Aim but if you take a barrel out of any sniper rifle and place it into any blaster rifle you'll notice a significant drop in the damage range. This is because sniper rifles in general have a higher damage rating than blaster rifles. It's no different for HK-51. He's proficient with both (just like a Sniper Agent class or a Commando with Assault Cannons) but realistically you'd never want to equip him with a blaster rifle over a sniper rifle.
