10 round mags are a bummer.

Are you getting it to make it into a G36 lookalike?

$850 is about the cheapest I've ever seen for one. Is it new or used? Can the mag well be modded to take different mags?

No I actually like the way it looks except for the stock .. anyone know if there is a folding stock available?

Mags would definitely be the biggest disadvantage to the SL-8. I guess you could get a conversion kit from Toad if you wanted to risk it.

I've read about people adapting them to it. If there isn't one in production now, I'm sure there are some availible. If you get it and dump the stock, contact me. I've been wanting one of those stocks for a project.

Nope. The mag well and a the bottom of the receiver are molded so that only 10 round single stack HK mags can be used.


BTW...

The first thing that I would do would be to take that ridiculous looking forend off of it and put the factory forend back.

If you want a gun light on it, you can add a short picitany rail to the factory fore end, and mount a light on it there.

unless you're gonna finish the conversion job, I'd take all that crap off. As a target rifle, it's an AMAZING DEAL at 850.... as a shtf rifle, ya gotta finish the conversion.

At that price I'd be cautious of a rip off though,. especially with those accesories on it.

Great price. Most I've seen are $1000++

Also, you can get the conversion kit for the stock and the mag well at Top Notch (Toads bro Wade). I've fired a friends converted sl8 (arfcom Team Member hepcat85) and it's worked flawlessly. IM him and he'll give you a ton of info. I got mine for $950 and was original stock. This one has the additional 3x optics rail on it plus the fore end. Do you know the mfg. of the fore-end?

Not true the mag well is a seperate peice from the reciever and is changable, The indent on the reciever can be milled out very easly aloowing the use of g36 mags or ar15 mags, WITH THE PROPER AMOUT OF USA MADE PARTS
