Old stored away reserved 91 - 30 Nagant rifles have been retro fitted to serve as DMR Substitutions to arm an ever growing army in growing conflicts. With a few minor modifications these obsolete last resort rifles have been reborn as a useful new weapon to put in the hands of trained marksmen that have not been supplied with S.V.D Rifles due to shortages. Allowing these men to make use of there skills for the moment, taking as any enemies out as they can and stalling the approaching armies.
Soviets usefulness of existing assets is represented in this weapon.

The more I look at this the more I wish I had a physical one to toy with to see how comfortable/uncomfortable it would be, IE to work the bolt. Also, Love your SKS concepts (That SVS-30! )
The first major one is that there is no where to get a good cheek weld or a front grip. Without a good cheek weld, follow up shots are going to be difficult and the lack of front grip means the the user's hand would be burned on the barrel.
The optic is mounted too high to be useful. At ranged under 100m, where bullpups really excel, you would have to aim extremely high to hit your target. With that rail offset, you might actually have to aim so high that your target completely leaves your sight in the scope.
The stock is a bit long for a bullpup. I feel like I'd be really stretching my arms to grab the pistol grip and a front one.
Also, the internal magazine might not feed at that angle. It could, maybe, but I really doubt it. That's not a massive error though.
I thought a visual aid might be helpful in this critique. I tried to address the issues I saw while still maintaining some of the things I noticed you really wanted in it, such as the carry handle rail.
The two things on the modifications I made that really need explaining are detailed in the Sta.sh upload, as well. Keep up the awesome work and never stop trying to better yourself!
Barrett m99 & m95 exist in real life, Your argument is Invalid, Incorrect & lack supporting reasons
im sure they can carry it over to a 91-30 mosin
[but your are entitled to disagree, Just don't mean your right or that I have to accept them. . . . or reply to anything after this , Please don't]
Is my firearm preference/style
Oversized carry handles/rails, oversized trigger guards , & all things bullpup.
May be a tad bit to tall but reasonable in my opinion, But is to allow shooting without bending your neck low enough with the weapons lower line of sight if they were directly on the barrel of the weapon.
Is with all Bullpup firearms, there sights must then be raised to accommodate the shooter, Or even firearms it strait stocks like the AR-15
Feel free to Fav, Will be much appreciated
