Does any body know if HK is going to make the XM8 in semi for the civilian market since the AWB is dead?

No.

H&K has said it has no plans to offer the XM8 to the civilian sector, just as it does not offer a semi-auto G-36, and has discontinued the SL8-1 in North America and the SL8-4 in Europe.

It's handguns only for us it would seem.

You hit the nail right on the head. No XM8 for us for a long time.

Maybe when it hits Curio and Relic status.

By the time it hits curio and relic status the clones will have done to HK what all the AR manufacturers did to Colt...It will still be nice to have an HK for the name, but functionally it won't matter. Fock HK
