I could be wrong, but I think that depending on how short you made the barrel, it would be under 30 which is a no no even with a fixed mag. Just a thought.

Aw, I knew there had to be a fly in the ointment. Or maybe even a cat poop.

Let's see, I just grabbed a ruler and my CA-legal M4gery, and it appears that it couldn't afford to lose any barrel length with the stock retracted. Now, it might be possible to install the shorter M4 barrel (I don't recall the exact length) if the telestock was permanently locked at maximum length, but that would just be silly. For any given overall length, might as well maximize the barrel length within the constraint of having a comfortable pull length.

Ok, your homework assignment is to take my basic idea and them come up with other interesting and legal applications!
