  1. OUTSIDE HK FEEDBACK
    Just wanted to create a warning post about RKS USA. I placed an order 4/22/2019 for 2 things that were “in stock.” Knowing that RKS was very slow, I placed my order anyways. Past reviews and other posts said they were very slow but always reliable, so I wasn’t too worried about it. Well fast...

  6. WANTED TO BUY HK PARTS AND ACCESSORIES
    Hello all, I am looking to buy the front (not the stub) part of a g36 receiver that has been left over from an SL8 conversion. I am under the impression that it is essentially a worthless piece of plastic, but I have been increasingly working with CAD and figure that getting the schematics...

    Recently started working on a concept for a simple tri-rail bracket in my free time. Only issue is I am working overseas and do not have access to my SL8/G36 to take accurate measurements. I have the 3D model I am working with scaled to fairly accurate dimensions based general specifications I...
  8. HK NFA TALK
    Ok so I have been kicking the idea around for a while and now that I've got my Form 1 back it's time to make a decision. Do I try to find a G36C front end and pay a premium or have my SL8 barrel cut down? I've consulted a few people who do the G36 conversions and one is telling me he can cut and...

    Hi everyone, I acquired an HK SL8 barrel that has been cut down for a G36c conversion. Any idea what this barrel would sell for or worth? Thanks!

    I have an SL8 to PSG-8 tbostic stock conversion. I went with AR magazines and left the barrel original. It is 922 compliant. I also have a very nice g36 dual optic, a g36 folding stock conversion kit (that was made by special weapons?), and all the original sl8 parts, box, etc. Original...

    Hello all, This is my first post on HK Pro. I recently purchased an SL8-1/G36K conversion with the C-style picatinny rail with iron sights. I was wondering how to zero these sights and what distance I should be using to do it? My only prior experience is with AR-15 style sights, and I'm not...

    Hello fellow HK fans, I am in the process of zeroing in my new SL8, but I can't find the info about the bullet trajectory like the m16 manual has. I know that bullet flies on a parabolic path, but I can't find a range over 50 yards long for now. Anyone know the answer? Thanks!

    I just recently purchased one of those SL8's that CDDN was selling. I took it to the range for the first time this weekend and it shot like a dream with everything i fed it (5.56 and .223 various grain). The question I have for those of you who have an SL8 is, what type of case are you...

    I bought a G36 bipod for my SL8-1. I have reviewed the owner manual and I can't figure out how to remove the metal clip that keeps the front pin in place. The pin I am talking about is the one that has the eyelet at the end so that you can attach a sling. I tried prying on it but I don't want to...

    I was looking around and found this Heckler & Koch H&K SL8 Complete Forearm stock/handguard. The seller claims that "The stock Forearm came off of a Brand New SL8 Rifle. The Forearm stock/Handguard can be used in your G36/G36C/G36K conversion. This will fit SL8's and G36's." HECKLER&KOCH H&K...

    Hello all - first post. I tried searching for this but came up empty. I recently purchased a SL8-6 with the aftermarket handguard rail set. Is there a longer rail available for the bottom then the aftermarket (2 mounting positions) rail? Would a G36C or G36K Long bottom rail (3 mounting...

    I"ve been doing the leg work on converting my Sl8 and USC Ive come to the point that to only reliable sources for real deal or close to parts are top notch and HDPS. This far my opinion is that for the best end product I should go with HDPS. I have seen many postings here on conversions so I'm...

    I am trying to fabricate an SL8/G36C cross for airsoft. I'm trying to find schematic diagrams or drawings that I can use as reference images for my modeling in Inventor so I can machine the whole thing out of aluminum on a CNC machine. Anyone know where I could find such information? Thanks, David
