    Trivia

    • The SL8 was originally intended to be a skin for the SIG SG550 Sniper, but was changed to a standalone weapon instead.
    • The SL8 is modeled after its 10-round variant, yet somehow holds 20/25 rounds.
    • On its buttstock there is an embossed sticker with the words "CSO".
    • The words written on the side of SL8 Custom's scope are "US. GOVT" and "KNIGHTS ARMAMENT CO".
    • The suppressor on SL8 Custom isn't functional, instead, the firing sound has more 'punch' to it.
