||I got myself an Ares G36 2 Years ago and it has been incredibly reliable. It's very intuitive to use, and to break down. It's easily a gun for anyone, regardless of your level or field of play.
*Extremely durable polymer body
*Breaking the gun down is simple, as is reassembling it
*Very accurate at up to 100 feet
*Extremely durable gearbox
*Can easily handle a 7.4v LiPo battery (mine has been running with a 7.4 for a year and a half now with no problems)
*Blowback is definately a plus and gives the gun a semi-realistic feel.
*Spring tension release button. DEFINITE PLUS!
*The Stock Spring very durable and very reliable.
*The entire platform is easily customized, and has alot of options that it's compatible with both interally and externally.
*Hop-up. It's difficult to wind, and not the most reliable from stock. I highly recommend replacing it with the 1-peice alluminum hopup by Matrix/CNC found here:
*Clockwise threading, so you will need a thread adapter to use most Mock Suppressors
*Fire Selector plate is deceptively fragile. Definitely handle with the utmost care when disassembling the gun/ gearbox. It's one of the few parts that are not TM compatible.
*Blowback can be slightly difficult to disable.
*Flash Hider is very difficult to remove.
*Does not fit 9.6v NiMH batteries easily. I Definitely recommend a 7.4v Mini-LiPo battery for thsi gun instead.
