I am looking at possibly getting a SL8 and by doing so of course I am interested in converting it to a "G36." That being said i saw Top Notch Parts Conversion kit which allows it to accept AR mags, Adds pistol grip and folding stock. I was wondering if anybody here has had any experience with them. How is the quality? Also how simple is the conversion do you simply swap trigger groups and put on the Top Notch kit; or do you have to modify the receiver? Thanks for the input.

"Top Notch" is one of the myriad names for "Special Weapons LLC." Special Weapons has a pretty bad reputation. Mainly, the problems revolved around the owner/operator. Do a search for "Special Weapons" on just about any gun board and you'll see what I'm talking about.

There have been problems with their products that were denied and not fixed. Most of their products that experienced problems were fixable, but the company couldn't be relied upon to perform those fixes.

I'm not sure if Top Notch is associated with Special Weapons LLC, now Special Weapons Inc. I think Special Weapons used to be Bobcat, now Red Rock Arms but they are all out of Arizona and Top Notch is in Arkansas.

I have seen the conversions done by Top Notch and HDPS and both looked pretty well done. I saw them at a couple of ranges but didn't take them apart or have them side by side for a full comparison though.
