Take a Close Look at The H&K SL-8 Rifle, the Civilian G36

H&K SL-8 rifle

The H&K SL-8 is one slick-looking rifle.

What does Ian from Forgotten Weapons think about this gun? Let Forgotten Weapons tell you all about the H&K SL-8 Rifle.

The H&K SL-8 Rifle is a weapon born out of anti-gun import laws. While adapting to all of the changes, the rifle is, at heart, still a G36 rifle. 

What this rifle does not have is the usual set of “tactical” components included on the standard G36 rifles. The magazine housing holds only a neutered 10-round magazine. It also lacks the threaded barrel for flash hiders and other accessories. It was imported as a sporting rifle without the G36 features.

Ian from Forgotten Weapons takes a look at the unique H&K SL-8 Rifle, the past face of the ever-growing anti-gun laws and regulations.
