Is this the ugliest m21?

Hi all-
I had an idea to modify a Bula M21DMR to be legal for California. This is what I've come up with. I'm not sure if it's ugly or beautiful - or maybe it just needs an all composite implementation of this idea. Anyhow, I wanna know what you think - ugly or gorgeous, or somewhere in the twilight zone....

i don't care for the glass tube being stainless/bare metal, but otherwise, I LIKE IT!!!

it's super weird, and it summons similar emotions that my AK does. I'd definitely own one if I lived in YOUR commie state...luckily, MY commie state of MA hasn't started regulating M14 platforms to death just yet (yet).

Buttstock needs to be black. Kinda reminds me of an automobile that is part primer painted and part finished paint.

It doesn't flow for me.

Ok, maybe it's ugly, no offense.

Thanks from Rich D

maybe it's the only wood the owner could get,me personally,would have gone with
an ace hammer stock with pad. he must have lurch fingers to pull the trigger. must be a california/ny,conn or mass gun

I think it would look a lot better with all camo, or same color. Unique concept to solve a problem.

Looks great to me. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
The important thing is , how does it shoot.

Remember...you asked...I would move out of California before using that rig.

But, you asked!

That's not a real rifle, so I'm not going to leave a real comment.

Is the Archangel not CA legal? If it is legal, I'd run with that.

It is, in fact CA legal...WITH the grip insert that can be installed in between the 'buttstock' and the 'grip'...stupid fudging law if you ask me. The insert makes it so you can't get a full hand wrap around the grip...therefore somehow making it ...less...lethal...?

Since you're asking- My opinion is to do away with the wood and replace with black composite. It just doesn't look right with the mix.
Cheers
