I am not a small clearance fanboy, but the full rail becomes quite a nuisance for mounting scopes if you do not specifically want it there as you do not have an option of reducing bore height other than cutting the rail.

That's just one of the considerations that I'd lay out there for a new person if you are planning on use a full-sized scope.
To be fair, you're already having to mount the scope high on this rifle anyway due to the position of the stock in relation to the receiver. But the same could be said about lots of things, such as people wanting handguards with 4' of rail on an AR with nothing mounted to it.
