View Full Version : Used 36 Pricing?

I spent over an hour last night searching every gun auction and sales site I could find on the web, looking for a used G36. I hear enough stories about people having trouble getting them to function reliably I figured one of those un-happy owners would want to get rid of the "problem". Well, if they do they seem to think they can make money on the deal. Every used G36 I found would cost as much (counting all expenses) or more than buying a new one from Glockmeister.

Where are all the "piece of junk" malfunctioning G36s? I want to buy one that doesn't work reliably and see if I can figure out why. Sure not going to pay a new gun price for a gun that may not work!

Maybe POJ G36s only exist in gun forums in a parallel universe......

Around here, East TN, you can buy a new36 as cheap as a used one, if and
when you can find a used one. I hunted for nearly a year until I finally gave
up and bought a new one about a year ago. I had sold my old one to my brother
when he got his CCW. A weak moment, I assure you. I tried to buy it back or trade
him a m33 or a SIG 239 for it but he wouldn't go for it. Both it and my new 36 have
never had a FTF. FTE or any other type of malfunction or problem. It'll be a
cold day in hell before anyone gets this one. You can bank on that!
