Better late than never I suppose. Heckler & Koch has finally secured the right to sell a civilian version of the G36 to the U.S market. It’s first attempt at this was the SL8 series of rifles which required extensive (and expensive) modifications if you wanted to get it back into a G36 configuration.
One major difference with the 293 from the SL8 (which used it’s own proprietary mags) is that the 293 will accept standard AR-15 mags. Price hasn’t been revealed, but I wouldn’t be surprised if its expensive. You have other designs like the ACR and SCAR, along with the AR-15, all of which are heavily established than the G36 platform ever was in the U.S, so it will be interesting to see how the 293 fairs.
