Just wanted to introduce myself, I live in Westchester NY, and always wanted to start target shooting (rifles, as pistol permits are notoriously hard to get here). Getting ready to go poor trying to get my first HK rifle. Lots of new things to learn...

I am trying to get an SL8-6, I hear its an accurate shooter. I love that styling. Found one for sale here on the forum and trying to figure out the FFL transfer details as it will be the first gun purchase for me.

Nice to meet you Louis.

My first HK was the SL-7, the older sister to your hopefully soon acquired SL8-6. I absolutely love the action on my baby, and she's damn accurate too. I'm sure you'll have a blast once your wallet recoups enough to get some more mags and ammo. HK's are investments, not expenses.

Thanks guys, trying to sort out this FFL transfer business and getting confused. Anyways, hopefully things are being sorted out soon enough. Not sure what the protocols are for the transfer if the FFL dealer does not wish to send a copy of his license to the seller who is a private party. The FFL dealer is willing to send the license number for the seller to check online in exchange for the seller's driver's license info. Is this how things go normally and is that sufficient for the seller to then send the firearm to the listed address of the FFL dealer?

Hopefully I will get this SL8-6 soon!

yeah, ended up that way, he handed the gun to an FFL, so it will be FFL-FFL transfer. That's cool, I offered him to pay for that extra fee too, but not heard back about that, but whatever it takes... Now ust waiting for my payment to get to him and hopefully the rest will be smooth...

Got the rifle!! yey. NICS was delayed for about 6 hours but in the end got the "proceed". It feels kind of surreal being my first real gun and all, but this has been my dream weapon so it will be a lot of fun. I was able to score a clean new dual-optic and some US made promags (10rds), HDPS operating rod, and a US made piston. I kinda like the look and the feel of thumbhole stock actually, so having second thoughts about conversions now. I think I am going to keep it like this for a while as I slowly decide to see if I should "improve" it...

Its an outstanding rifle!! You will love it plus its an attention getter at the range everyone ooohs and ahhh's it. Then they all want to put down their AR's to shoot it and i let them because i like to be the center of attention :) I mean really its pure sexy!!






Cool. Won't be long and it will start morphing into a G36 clone... ask me how I know =-/
I was gonna do that too but i cant bring myself to take it apart to do that. Guess i'll just have to find someone willing to sell one already modded :wink:
