    Default SL-8 Questions

    Hey all, new to the forum after purchasing an SL8-1. I think I got a good deal on it now debating the XM8 or G36 conversion for that fact. OR do you all feel these things are best left un-molested? I'm finding unless the two main guys that seem to do the conversions have parts laying around any conversion might be difficult as parts are scarce.

    Thanks for any and all input.

    Xm8 looks great. Unless TBT says he is doing xm8 kits to work with the T36 receivers, I would use the sl8 for that.

    Go for the XM8, if you want the G36 the better route would be the new T36 receiver by Tom.

    I am happy with my faux G36E, but the thing was a money pit to get remade.

    I am more into the historical tactical weapons for the history and use. I had TB convert my SL8 to a G36 and absolutely love it.

    I agree.....something about having a real deal HK. I say go for the G36 conversion IF you can gather all the correct parts. Very expensive and very worthwhile task IMO.

    I was down on the XM8 until the new Space Force was announced.
