No doubt, are there any plans to replace the scopes?

Well I hope that the new H&K rifles that we're getting don't have that problem with their high-speed internalized scopes, not that you really need a scope at all with the effective range of the XM8 anyway, but that's a different issue .

i think the xm8 wont have that problems.
hk should have learned from the g36 ......
by the way i think that the xm8 is a g36 in a new costume

Does the G36 only have a 12.5 inch (sorry, don't know the metric conversion) barrel too? I need my range to feel safe, probably comes from growing up in a very open area.

The G36K has the 12.5inch (380mm) barrel its sometimes used by specialised units like airborne rangers etc.

But the usual G36E used in the whole german army has a 480mm (18.9inch) barrel. It can also be used as a light machine gun.

Our KSK(special forces) uses also the G36C, its the G36 with the lenth of a MP. Its barrel is 11.3inch (288mm) long

Though the German army used the G36, not the export G36E?
