Ohh. I'm keeping it the way it is I like the military feel and style it has.

The reason the bolt is straight is so that it is easy to operate with heavy gloves or mittens on. The Ruskies did a lot of fighting in the serious freaking cold.

Mine is turned down to allow a scope I haven't bought yet. Can you operate a straight bolt with a scope?

Is it bad mine is turned down? Does it decrease the value? What special scope, the original?

That depends on whether the bolt was original to the rifle, or altered later. R Guns has been selling rifles advertised as having the "original turned-down bolts." I have no idea if these rifles were once snipers or something made for the American market.

The special scope mentioned was probably a long eye relief scope. It can mount far enough forward to allow you to operate the straight bolt.

Yes that's what I meant. I apologize for my hasty reply before I was at work and didn't have time to fully explain. If your bolt is truly original to the gun and is a sniper model (which is doubtful) then its worth more than your average mosin. However since most had their bolts turned down to make them a.) Collectible b.) Able to use a regular scope or c.) Had a turned bolt fitted after the war they're not worth as much.

IIRC, the Russian "snipers" had a side mounted scope that cleared the straight bolt. (PU scope??)
