I'm not usually one to worry overmuch about the looks of a working firearm, but I'd agree with you. That thing is awful.

2nd change was a DSA safety lever. The Century can be pushed past fire and disables the rifle. The DSA has a catch to stop at fire, you also need a pin for the hole Century provided.
Forturnately my rifle has the humpback stock.
Obama tried to ruin J&G during Fast & Furious, so I recommend you buy the rifle.
