http://www.hkpro.com/sl8.htmI only state that the SL8 is ugly as a point of comparison to the G36. If you were double dating with Heidi Klum and Rosie O'Donnell, the comparison might make more sense. I do not wish to offend any proud owners of the SL8 or SL8-1. They are simply guns that are designed by ill-conceived laws that legislate guns by appearance. The function is identical to the G36, but because politicians have decided that folding stocks, pistol grips and flash hiders and for that matter, the color black = assault weapons, what we get is an SL8. Congratulations to HK for even trying. They have done a masterful job I think.
