to the forearm and is functional. I can say without that the gun still rocks. But, If I could change anything about the conversion, it would be the stock flooping around and unusable while folded.

My conversion uses the great block I got from the member in MO. Does anyone have another method that looks and functions more like the real thing?

Thanks and Merry Christmas.

If you're good with a soldering gun, you could plastic weld some material to the top of casing deflector and mould one to look/function just like the factory. (this is the route I am going to take)

Tbostic has some already fbricated that you can simply use Devcon's Plastic Welder II to bond it. You'll still need to "finish" it though. I don't know if he sells them alone but you could ask.

Ed's conversion block (HDPS) is tight enough on the stock that it doesn't flap around... but the block is $265.

Thanks for the info. Need to find some way to make this thing more like the G36 when it comes to the stock fit and function. Is it legal to whack the back and get it to factory length? Has anyone done this?

Factory length requires that it no longer fold. If you're after a usable LOP on this rifle, you may end up doing what I did and forego the folding option. Even with the folding stocks, you can't fire the rifle with the stock folded as it knocks the casings back into the action. With that in mind, it was an easy decision to go fixed and be done with it.

Here's a pic;


Not hard to do if you're handy and it's sturdy. It's pinned, dovetailed, bonded and epoxied and I've put some pressure on it to make sure it's good enough to carry in the field. It is.

Tom's Gen-3 conversion kit does this. You essentially whack off the "ears" and attach a G36 moulded rear. You're whacking off the serial number so there are some ATF legal issues to deal with. You need to Form-1 your rifle to do this.

Here's a couple of links with pics for you to look at...

you have to do some fairly "hefty" plastic welding/bonding, and modifications to the reciever in order for it to work (as well as some legal hurdles), but it DEFINATLY looks identicle to the G36, except for the markings saying "HK SL8-1 .223 rem".
