it'd be cool to get a fiberglass stock with "Sniper Central" on the stock by where the bipod would be on a rem. custom shop gun..(i dont know what its called) but that xm8 is pretty wicked--crap.....i'd buy it if it was a real gun (not saying it isnt) then all ya need is some handy dandy spray paint
Yeah,theres a cheap Chinese springer XM-8 that isnt even 1:1. I've never seen one but thats probably it. Alot of airsoft guns come with fake ammo in the clear mags, all the 552 and G36 models do, as well as some P90s. So I would be willing to bet that its an airsoft gun.
And to think they wanted to make that thing the new U.S. battle rifle... :? Thank God they didn't.
it doesnt look like it has that muzzle flash compensator with the 4 prongs.......plus there arent any target knobs on the scope...and if you check out this link http://www.bellum.nu/armoury/HKXM8-versions.jpg you can clearly tell that its not the "real steel"........
Its a conversion kit for a Tokoyo Mauri G36 airsoft gun.
Almost a shame they did that to it, those conversion kits were a limited run, and are super rare. On the other hand, I hate that gun, and I think it fits it well.
