Hannie, what it is is, collectors want their guns in as close to original condition as possible. If you make any modifications to your gun, the "collector value" goes away. Truthfully, I don't know of anybody collecting Huskies. Well, aside from me, that is.
Anyway, you're right. The rifle was designed to be used with iron sights, and when you mount a scope on it the scope is too high to see comfortably with your head in the correct position on the stock. The only solution is to get a higher stock.
You can have another stock made, with a higher cheekpiece, saving your original stock so that, if sometime in the future, some collector wants to buy it, then you still have the "original" stock, to return the gun to "original condition". Of course, since it has had holes drilled in it to mount a scope, it is no longer in "original condition" anyway.
Or you could just have a cheekpiece added to your stock. Maybe one of those USGI ones, for the M1 Rifle. Something like this. http://www.redfordfilms.com/product/...&utm_campaign=
Me, I don't plan on selling my guns, so having them in a condition that will not appeal to some mythical collector does not matter. I want them the way I need them. Stock's too long, I'll cut it. Too short, I'll add a recoil pad. Sights suck, I'll replace 'em. I've refinished a few stocks, to make them look prettier to my eyes.
My advice to you is to do what you think needs doing. After all, it is your rifle, and it needs to work for YOU - not somebody years down the road. Just realize that any modifications you make to a gun will lower resale value.
It's just like with a car. Suppose you had a pickup truck, but you really needed a flatbed. So you take the cargo bed off the truck and build a flatbed out of lumber. It works great for you, for all the time you need it. But when you go to sell the truck, it will be harder to sell than one that still had the cargo bed on it.
