Very interesting concept (I can hear the purists anger from here), curious if it could actually be done with surplus mosins with the trigger that far forward.  One suggestion I would make as a change would be to extend the stock forward more, and add a forward grip and/or bipod, as well as bring the other end of the top rail down to meet the stock so it'll be more stable.  After all the shooter would have his/her hand directly on the barrel in this setup.  The rail is also high enough to have ironsights as backup (or an RDS built into the rail set for a closer range as an 'oh shit' backup).

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! :D)

While the aesthetics of this are pretty awesome, I saw some technical issues that I thought it might be good to address.

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 upload, as well. Keep up the awesome work and never stop trying to better yourself!

Its just an observation. Besides I have several Mosins and I know how they work. I didn't know this wasn't the m91 30. Even so you should calm down. Like I said, it was only a curious observation. No need to take it personal and bash on it like I'm arguing with you. Laters

Why is the trigger so far away from the bolt? It won't lock or fire like that.

Barrett m99 & m95 exist in real life, Your argument is Invalid, Incorrect & lack supporting reasons :meow:

im sure they can carry it over to a 91-30 mosin

Well, as my Zaide would say (depending on his mood) Velkh der shtupn? or Was der Fick? But seriously, who in his right mind would do this to a bolt-action rifle design that's over a century old? With a glas-fibre stock and a full floating barrel for weight weduction and increased accuracy, a flash suppressor and an advanced scope mount for better optics, sure. Those alterations would serve to make it an excellent sniper rifle. (It already has a proven reputation as such, and the alterations I mentioned would only improve that, I've seen and fired one so modified.) But with the action behind you against your shoulder, you would have to go off-target every time you had to chamber another round. Very bad for a sniper as you would lose your target acquisition. IMHO better to leave it with a conventional configuration. Even worse for a front-line rifle. This would get the user killed very quickly in a firefight against personnel armed with even crappy assault rifles. (Where they can "pray and spray" to carry out an attack, With this design the rifleman might get off and even kill his target, the target's buddy would kill him before he'd be able to chamber another round.

Is my firearm preference/style :meow:

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 :meow:
