Looks like $5K buys you a converted SL8 that looks like the XM8. Lot of great work, but I couldn't see putting that much dough into a clone. I'd recommend upping the quality to 1080p on this video:

I watched a part of the video the other night. With anything H&K it's pricey but having $5K in a semi auto rifle like that it's not my thing. The work is nice no doubt.

There are several reasons the Army didnt go with the M8, one of the them was the problems that the Bundeswehr was having with the G36. No reason to put $5k into a project the Army avoided. Looks cool though.
