Normal marine arms on Primaris ?

They're two different lines of models, on two different scales, unless you're going to elongate the arms, hands and fingers, it wont look right as not only are they materially on different scales, they are too in the fluff
it would be like attaching Catachan arms on DKoK

*IF* you have access to the mkIII or mkIV plastic arms, they are marginally bulkier than the regular arms. Alternatively the easiest way to extend the regular arms is plasticard spacers on the arm part of the shoulder, under the pad, and at the wrist cuff.

Hope that helps.

Primaris arms are noticably longer and a bit thicker, with thicker hands.

It could be pulled off if you fiddle around with the shoulder placing on the torso.
Personally, I swap the hands of Primaris arms with Marine hands. Here's what I did with Wolf Lord Krom's hand holding axe plus the outstretched arm from the Intercessor combat squad box, to wolf up my Primaris Ancient.
Take a look at this video for some great inspiration on converting Primaris Black Templar (and Imperial Fists)

My limited experience is the same as Kinstryfe's.
I put Sanguinary guard arms on a Primaris and they look fine, but they're hard to mate up because the torso is broader. It took a very simple pin into the wrist and a minor GS fill to link them, and then a pin into the shoulder to ensure a strong bond.
The pauldrons look like the stand too proud of the arms because they're just stuffed with bluetack, so ignore that.

Then again, I'm pretty attentive to detail so it could just be me.

Yeah, they REALLY don't fit
I stand by the catachan/DKOK comparison
