Well, I'm in two minds about it myself - it's comfortable, but it's not great to look at.
However, no doubt the appearance can be improved with practise.
You know as we as I do, I'd just hack off the stock ..ehm..stock and I would give the barrel a trim as well.
Well, this is a carbine anyway! The regular version is three inches longer.
But I'm not likely to hack the end off the barrel... I'm pretty sure that would void the warranty.
Actually, I've probably already voided the warranty, but I don't really care. I like to tinker with things, and so I will - I've already designed some parts I could make to help improve it's performance (things like a bearing in the piston weight to take out the firing torque), but taking a hacksaw to the muzzle seems a bit over the top.
I have got half a mind to make some changes to the length of the stock though.
If you feel up for it you could try decorative patterns.
I'll be trying it to spice up some of the flatter plain bits... but I'll draw it on first, then use my low power engraving tool.
If it doesn't work, there's no need for it to be copied onto the final version.
@Maxus: This is the guide I made to help with cutting the inlay for the action:

It's about 2cm thick, and takes a heck of a lot of the guess work out of it.
