Is it possible for an ordinary citizen to get a HK G-36 (semi-auto of course)? I want one of these but can't find where to get one or if it is even possible. If it is possible to get one, could someone post a link to where I can get it?

No. You can convert a HK SL8 to look somewhat like one though. You'd have to find one second hand as they no longer make them. Then you'd have to pay for the conversion.

The odds of a civilian version of the MP7 being offered seem pretty remote. Even if they did it would either have a fixed 16" barrel or be neutered into a oversized pistol, neither of which would be overly tacticool.

From what I understand, HK wants a military contract and is building a manufacturing facility stateside. We will see if they offer anything to "us" for sale or not. But if there ever was a chance of HK turning their company around a bit, this is going to be it. I am not holding my breath.

The article is a bit old, but all I can say is the article mentions MP5's being made here. HK might have piss poor customer service, but they would be a moronic business to not offer a semi auto version for sale. Add $200 for a stamp and some more for the smith to chop off a few inches, and you have something that isn't a bad idea IMO. Politics aside, I might cave on something like that.

The H&K SL8-6 is the civilian version of the G-36.

You can modify your SL-8 to look like a G-36. All of which takes lots of $$$$.

From start to finish, average price seems to range around $2500-4000, depending on what configuration you go with.

HK has totally abandoned the civilian military rifle market, in an attempt to be politically correct and appeal to members of congress and police admin types. I've been told by current HK reps that there is no plan to offer any HK military style rifles to civilians - period.

I believe they did NOT build the manufacturing site (the article was from 2003), since the XM8 project was cancelled.

Yes, but they are still trying to get the 416 as a standard issue.

No, but the Kel-Tec Su-16 is also built with a polymer receiver and chambered in 5.56mm. So it's the poor man's G-36.:)

One of the side effects of the end of the cold war, is that armies just aren't buying new weapons. Companies like GIAT, FN and HK (and even Colt) that depend on military contracts for much of their sales are in financial trouble. HK has been chasing after US military contracts for the last 10+ years because we are the only ones spending any serious money. FN has changed their policy, and are now offering they P90 and FS2000 to the civilian buyer. HK's only hope for their rifle division is probably to fo the same thing, because in the end, military sales aren't doing it. Note how many times some of these companies have been sold in the last few years.

I've no doubt that if HK started offering the G36 for civilian sale, they'd sell a few. But they don't seem to care about civilian sales of their long guns.

The Keltec SU-16 is a very poor man's G36. Very, very poor. And I say this as an owner of an SU-16. But it is one of the few 'assault-style' rifles that can be sold in California.

I think I am probably the only person to own a 6.8 SU-16. I don't recommend trying this conversion.
