"This is an incredibly fine piece of Airsoft weaponry!! I've received countless compliments and quite a few people staring in awe at it's incredibly loud blowback! When I say loud, I mean LOUD. It's easily three times as loud as a normal firing airsoft rifle, and it just echoes throughout the field. I can't stop raving over the blowback on this, the loud metallic clank is so satisfying the second you pull the trigger, and it's performance is incredible. Putting this thing in full auto....honestly I'm not sure what more I can say about the sensation you get hearing that clank and feeling the kick. Yes, there is actual kick with this heavy EBB system! Aside from the great sound, the gun performs remarkably well, and has range and accuracy comparable with an M4, (which has a nearly 6 inch longer inner barrel). To put this in perspective, my friend modded out a SCAR-L, poured $500 into it, it shot roughly 500 fps, had the best range out of anyone. We shot our weapons side by side as soon as I got this G36, mine was short by 5 feet from his, at roughly 400 feet. I play woodland a lot, so range is a higher factor than FPS, and while it shoots dead on at 350 fps, that has no bearing on the range which is honestly remarkable.
The G36c only has a few flaws, the first of which being it shot incredibly right when I took it out of the box! Nothing I did would make it recenter through the sights, and I simply couldn't figure out what was wrong...until I looked at the muzzle. The four prongs on the muzzle can be easily bent, and I saw the stress and wear on the inside of one of them, showing that the flashhider had been put on crooked during production. It was an easy fix to simply bend that one prong back out of the way, and after that it was dead on no matter what. The only other flaw is present on the real steel version, and I'd like everyone to beware: The carry handle where you mount your optics ISN'T ACTUALLY A CARRY HANDLE! DO NOT PUT ANY STRESS ON IT! It seems very sturdy and doesn't break or anything, but it WILL throw off your optic's zero if you're not careful, as putting a lot of weight on it by, say, carrying it like you would an M4, can warp the rail a little bit and throw off your sight. It's happened to me slightly, and I'd suggest double checking the zero before each day of airsofting, so you're not caught shooting right like I was! Aside from that, I would highly recommend this product!!
"I give this only 4 stars ONLY because like what others said about the locking on the switches for the firing modes.
One minute I'm going semi, then it would go into burst.
Other than that, the gun right out the box is outstanding. The ROF is impressive as well with the weight of the gun. It's very well balanced IMO. the BB has a nice feel to it too. Also IMO the low profile sights aren't my thing. I would recommend some high profile sights switched out if you're that type of person.
I have to hugely recommend this gun. I've shot a lot of other airsoft guns, like the KWA ERG, a KWA SR12, a ASG STEYR AUG, and this gun does something better than ALL of those other guns: trigger response. Even on a fully charged 11.1 Lipo battery, this g36c with a 9.6 has a trigger three times faster, and it's EXTREMELY effective in semi only games. The trigger response just FEELS like you are shooting a super high quality gun, on other guns, they feel like LPEGS compared to this. I LOVE the trigger! It's so effective! Something about it just makes me feel good. With a KWA ERG, in a semi only game, it's really hard to use! I have to pull the trigger like 3 times really quick for one shot to come out, and then they sit me down with a polar star. With this gun, I'm laying down shots on semi like a polar star, and even though this gun isn't the most accurate on the market, it's ability to fill the air with BBs really fast makes up for it. I would definitely get the full size version of this and make a MG36 if you want a good support gun, because this gun has a lot of firepower! I did a better job of suppressing people on semi than the guy with the PKP because my response was so good! Sadly, my trigger contacts took a dump on me, so I have to get them fixed, but when it worked, it was amazing.
