The Heckler & Koch SL8, produced by Heckler & Koch, is a semi-automatic rifle and serves as the civilian counterpart to the military Heckler & Koch G36.

This rifle is designed to shoot the .223 Remington or 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge and utilizes detachable magazines, with options for 10, 20, or 30-round capacities based on the rifle variant. Notably, the SL8 deviates from earlier HK rifles’ traditional roller lock bolt mechanism, adopting a lug-type rotating bolt system reminiscent of the AR-18.

Alterations have been made to tailor the G36 for civilian use, substituting the pistol grip and folding stock with a fixed stock featuring a thumbhole. The receiver has undergone modifications to prevent compatibility with folding stocks. Additionally, in adherence to the Gun Control Act of 1968, SL8 rifles exported to the United States have been adapted only to accept single-stack, 10-round magazines, excluding the possibility of accommodating staggered 20- and 30-round G36 magazines. The SL8 has undergone further enhancements, including a lightened trigger pull, customizable features such as an adjustable cheekpiece and buttplate for user fit, and a more robust and accurate barrel. Unlike the G36, the SL8 does not have a carry handle and built-in optics, but these can be separately acquired and installed.

For American owners seeking to modify their SL8s, enabling compatibility with 30-round G36 magazines and 100-round drum magazines is possible. However, this involves replacing the single-lug SL8 bolt head with a double-lug G36 bolt head, swapping the magazine well, and modifying the receiver to insert wider magazine bodies. It is crucial to note that such alterations to SL8 rifles, or any imported rifles for that matter, carry significant implications under the 1968 Gun Control Act. This legislation prohibits, among other things, the assembly of rifles from imported parts if the resulting configuration could not have been imported itself.
