Heckler & Koch Brings Back the Legendary SL8


On 3 August 2021 there was a great disturbance in the Force when HK leaked on social media that it was bringing back the HK SL8. A quick visit to HK’s web site confirms it.

“Back by popular demand, the SL8 is an import-legal version of the G36 designed for precision shooting. It features a cold-hammer forged barrel with a recessed crown. The free-floating bull barrel is manufactured with the famous HK cannon grade steel. The G36/SL8 short-stroke gas piston, later featured in the HK416, ensures smooth, clean, reliable operation. The SL8 also features a short MIL-SPEC optics mount, match trigger, and an adjustable stock.”
