I have a spare SL8 barrel. Is there anyone out there that can cut down and reprofile my barrel to a G36C barrel? I know I can buy one from HK Parts but I would rather convert the one I have. I do not want my barrel cut down and have to remove the heat shield in a G36C handguard. I want it all to fit correctly. If someone has had this done please chim in.
Tom can do it. He coverts them all the time. You will need a different gas block if i remember correctly. Seems like maybe the K profile can still use the SL8 block. I could be wrong in my memory though.
Tommy can do it for $300 and you keep your heat shield. Don’t both getting the USA barrels from HKparts. Not worth the money.
"...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."
Tom did my G36K stub fuse. I was just wondering if there was someone out there that could turn the barrel down, make it a smaller diameter and use the G36C gas block. I think Tom said I would have to remove the heat shield in the C handguard if I cut m SL8 barrel down.
If it is turned down to C specs then why would the heat shield be an issue? At that point the barrel would be no different than a C barrel which interfaces with the handguard with the shield.
Paging @tbostic - we need a clean up on aisle 36.

At the time I checked with Tom , he was only cutting down the barrel length not the diameter.
Gotcha. That would be one seriously front heavy sbr.
Tom can profile barrels to, he did the reprofile on my MR556 barrel along with cutting it down/threading. Just drop him an e-mail.
