    I'm getting ready to remove the from my wish list. Found a deal on one I just couldn't pass up, and I just picked up my P7M8 last week. I'm going to put myself in the poor house, and its all Hk's fault.

    Don't forget to do the UMP conversion on that USC either! ;) It's a never ending rabbit hole, that's what it is.

    I know. I want to do the conversion, but seeing how the parts kit costs more than the gun plus the SBR pain in the a**, i doubt it will happen soon. However I did tell myself "I need to stop spending money" after I bought the P7M8.:rolleyes: I am putting my self through college right now.:o

    From what I understand, you replace the lower, the barrel, and slap on a folding stock. I'm sure it gets more technical than that; I'll look into it more when I see it as a financially feasible.

    Yep, it replaces the lower and stock, though you don't have to do the barrel and can use the stock one. If you do the UMP barrel (or there are 1 or 2 companies making aftermarket barrels for the conversion), it is very short like 8" or so, so you have to SBR it which is another $200 for the tax stamp from the ATF. Just something to think about if you want to keep costs down.

    IMO wait for the SCAR from FN. Who knows how much an HK MR223/308 is going to cost, it could be over $2500 starting out. Remember HK doesn't have a plant here in the US like FN does. Also, Bushmaster is selling their gas piston as a kit for less than $500 I believe. Don't know if you can only install it on CAR length barrels or mid-length or standard length barrels. Another option is a PTR-91, I saw one at the gun show for $1100 brand new!!!! Its the exact same as HK's original HK-91 but a little bit more improved from magazine articles I've been reading about them. The only downside I've heard is that the "delayed-blow back" is a little harsh from what I understand, nothing a good recoil pad could cure I believe.

    Out here by the lake!
    I got bite by the H&K bug 30 years ago. Bought a 91 that was imported by Saco. Then I bought a P9S while I still had a FFL those were followed bu a SP89 & USP .40. Ofter thought that oneday I would convert the SP89. I'm loooking to put a can on the USP.

    Yes, those HKs will take some $ from you. Besides my Expert, I have a custom built MSG-90 with a douglas 26" hexygonal barel and springfield armory tac scope all built on a Portugese manufactured HK-91 receiver.

    H&K already announced they will be releasing the HK416 and I believe also the HK417 for civilian sale in the US. However, I have yet to see any price, MSRP, etc. Judging by what I saw of a European sales price, it appears they are selling for something like $3500-3800 in Europe I believe? I may be off a bit on that. Basically, it sounds like their price is going to end up being $2500+, at which point there will be plenty of more cost effective options. I can't see spending that much on a 416. I'm leaning towards going with a Bushmaster ACR as I've heard those should be priced somewhere around the $1700-2000 range, which is a fair price I think.
