Ah, the old "football bat"! Apparently the winner of a German design contest to see how way far out weird a "dress up kit" for a G36 can be!

Yep, a bit futuristic looking for me, I will stick with a .223 AK74.

Ever seen Ian's "grey room" video on the development of it? I kid you not, one of the criteria asked for by the US military was "make it more 'Starship Troopers' looking"! It had some good ideas, but would have been more popular I think if they had applied them to the basic G36 platform instead.
