A man has to do what a man has to do. I wouldn't.
Ya that does seem a little bit awkwardThe only thing I don't like about that Mosin is, look how far forward the scope is. I have a feeling that it's going to be a love or hate issue once you got it. There won't be any pulling it closer without some modifications - turning down the bolt, and figuring out how you want to hold the scope securely.
Good luck in your decision !
With all those added whistles and bells...I'd trade...

There is a whole new generation of great & affordable shooters RIGHT NOW! If someone got the best bolt, trigger and barrel all on the same gun...I very much like the Savage rifles. They're very accurate out of the box. I think I'd be looking at the Savage Axis first, Ruger American second, personally. Modern bolt guns are out of the box MOA capable without work, generally.
