HK SL8 with G36 collapsible stock
Nice, what was the cost if you don't mind my asking?
Im in Canada, so, bear with me.
$2.2k for rifle with some goodies
$1.4k for scope
$400 for stock
$140 for 3 x 10 round mags (these are "loophole" mags, we are only allowed 5 round mags in 99% of rifles)
I am appalled at how much that rifle cost, and that someone would pay that much.
Nice rifle. Why that instead of an AR/AK?
Needs a shorter barrel, but :thumbsup: for being different.
In a world of compromises, some people put the bullets in the magazine backwards…But it doesn’t matter, because our gun is on the cover of the Rainbow Six video games. Look how cool that SEAL coming out of the water looks… If you buy a $2,000 SOCOM, you will be that cool of an operator too. And chicks will dig you.
At HK, we stuck a piston on an AR15, just like a bunch of other companies have done, dating back to about 1969. However ours is better, because we refuse to sell it to civilians. Because you suck, and we hate you.
Our XM8 is the greatest rifle ever developed. It may melt, and it doesn’t fit any accessories known to man, but that is your fault. If you were a real operator, you would love it. Once again, look at Rainbow Six, that G36 sure is cool isn’t it? Yeah, you know you want one.And by the way, check out our new HK45. We decided that humans don’t need to release the magazine with their thumbs. If you were a really manly teutonic operator, you would be able to reach the controls. Plus we’ve fired 100,000,000 rounds through one with zero malfunctions, and that was while it was buried in a lake of molten lava, on the moon. If you don’t believe us, it is because you aren’t a real operator.
By the way, our cheap, mass-produced, stamped sheet metal guns like the G3 and MP5 are the bestest things ever, and totally worth asinine scalpers prices, but note that cheap, mass-produced, stamped sheet metal guns from other countries are commie garbage. Not that it matters, because you’re civilians, so we won’t sell them to you anyway. Because you suck, and we hate you, but we know you’ll be back. We can beat you down like a trailer park wife, but you’ll come back, you always do.
Buy our stuff.
HK Marketing DepartmentHK. Because you suck. And we hate you.
I thought the SL8 had it's own proprietary magazines?
That optic height looks a bit elevated though. Are you able to get a good cheek weld like that?
The magwell section comes right off and you can throw the ar mag magwell on it.
Everyone and their mom has ARs, and this thing "supposedly" shoots mroe accurately.
I just got the scope in the mail, so I still haven't shot it, gonna go this weekend probably.
I can make the barrel 2 inches shorter, thats about it
Perhaps everybody and their mom has ARs because they're good weapons? And what does it shoot more accurately than? A military M4? There are thousands of variants from countless manufacturers. Saying that it's "more accurate" doesn't really mean much.
Stop hating son. You obviously have an AR, so your bias is obvious.
I never had/fired one, so I dont know. Im just going by what I heard from owners of both weapons.
I'm not necessarily hating. It's just that when looking to buy a $2000+ rifle I'd want a little more concrete basis for my decision than "just going by what I heard." In the end though it's your money, and if you want to spend lots of it on a HundK, then you have every right to.
It's a foot long and weighs 10lbs. If you don't get it it's because you aren't an operator.
because its an offensive handgun
Thanks for posting. We here at Offtopic.com truely care about your feedback.
Cool gun. Hook us up with a range report when you get a chance to shoot it.
No hate, but the Acog almost looks unusable to me. Are you able to get to it, or the red dot on top of it without lifting your head off the stock?
Again, this isn't the main forum.
OP posts about his new gun and you have nothing valuable to input so you post hk.txt, as usual. It was funny the first 1,000 times, now it's just annoying.
You can discuss your hatred for HK in a comparison thread but don't do it when a new poster is posting a "Here's my new gun" thread.
thats like the 2nd time i've posted that.
