I've got a SOCOM with a Sage chassis and would like to mount  a TA 01B ACOG on the front rail.  Trijicon lists the eye relief at 1.5".  Can I mount this scope on the rail in front of the action and still have a good field of view?  Are there any draw backs to having the scope mounted that far forward?

Forgive my ignorance, as I'm a noob in regards to these type of scopes.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.  I will be using the SOCOM just for fun at the range but, I like to reach out to 400 - 500 yards.

The ACOG is not a scout scope.  If you want to mount something that far forward get a scout scope or a red dot.  If you want the ACOG mount it over the reciever.
