HK G36 / SL8 Upgrades
With the Spuhr upgrade kit this well-functioning weapon gets a modern touch and readies it for additional years in service. The project goals were to lower the weight, add professional back-up iron sights, and a lower top-rail, and of course add the capability of using standard M4/M16 magazines.
Magwell for M4/M16 magazines.
This is an ambidextrous magwell for the G36 that converts the G36 as to accept readily available M4/M16 magazines. Easy installation by removing the original magcatch parts and dropping in the magwell into the gun. Includes a compartment for spare batteries (2032 type). We also manufacture a new bolt stop that is needed to replace the original boltstop.
The top rail is manufactured from 7075 aluminium and is very strong even though it only weighs 200 grams. Our top rail lowers the otherwise very high line of sight of the G36. It’s fitted with back-up iron sights that are fully adjustable with tools. The sights are fitted with tritium inserts. The rear part of the rail is lowered to accommodate a low mounting of NV equipment. For those who prefer a full length rail without the lowered portion, there is a Picatinny spacer included (see picture below).Please note that the Picatinny rail is heavily dehorned to prevent burrs etc. after heavy use. Also a way of saving the hands and fingers of the users. Accessories, such as the Oerlikon LLM laser can be mounted on the top rail, rather than on the forend as to ensure that the point of aim will remain true even as the forend flexes and moves.
Lightweight & Adaptable forend
Our forend has very low weight and perfect ergonomics. It gives the user the choice to put picatinny rails were he needs them. We think it´s ”old fashioned” to run around with half a meter of Picatinny rails if you don´t need them. With our interface system the user gets a flexible lightweight system with only advantages. The rest of the equipment is heavy enough.
