is it possible for a civilian to buy an XM8?
I mean obviously different states have different views but overall can you own an XM8?
I'd probably get a carbine
Bum busted ARfags would never let them see the light of day
googled it. definitely a sweet firearm. I'll consider it
was really hoping xm8s were legal though. I love the way they look. Wish I could get a chance to play with one
Believe it or not, you can buy a conversion kit for the SL8 that makes it look and handle just like an XM8 with pretty solid accuracy. With HK releasing the HK293, I imagine it'll be a pretty popular option.
Correct. This is the email he responded with.
Here's an example of one, I'll try and find the photos he sent that show the kit itself. He also mentioned that an XM8C Kit may be in the future.
Any word on when HK will drop the 243/293 here in the US
Local gun shop had a couple for sale a few years back.
They were really expensive compared to your average ar15 though and aside from the location of the charging handle, I didn't really see the difference, practically speaking that is.
Besides, looks like a fish.
Can someone explain to me why the US Army was seriously contemplating replacing the M16 with the XM8?
