I actually find The recoil minimal. I think most shooters think the recoil is substancial because they are convinced long before they experience it objectively.

I find when I get to excited and don't shoulder it right it'll hurt but if I pay attention and place it correctly it's a nice push.

I personally don't think the gun has that much kick at all The only thing I dislike is the stock is a little shorter than most guns so when I shoot it my thumb hits my nose which gets annoying

Considered buying a recoil pad to get that extra 2 inches in the stock but I don't feel $20 is worth it to me

I'll decide next time I go shooting see how my nose feels afterwards

Ok, just which model are you shooting, it doesn't sound like the Mosin Nagant M38 or M44 carbine. Because being shorter they have real kick as compared to the long barrel.

Keep in mind; a lot of those judging Mosin recoil are relatively new to shooting Hi-power rifles. Many have 22lr experience only and were told the recoil is extreme. Proper stance and range time will undoubtedly change their opinion. If someone introduces them to a comparable caliber and shows them how to hold the gun, relax and breath it really isn't extreme recoil. As long as you think it is, it will be. I can't realisticly see much, if any more recoil than .308, 30.06, 8mm. I think my 30/30 has more felt recoil than my Mosins.
