After 2 months of owning a new G36, I've come to terms with the fact that I don't like the recoil or the interchangeability. I want the gen 4 G19 and I've got a lot of offers. Here in MA , the G36 will sell for $700 easy.

Update 8/25. I traded the 36 for a new Gen4 G19. I have never felt a gun that shoots and carries better than the 19. Simply amazed at how good of a gun it is.

I like my 36 but I like the 19 as well. Glock or Lonewolf will refinish the barrel for a nominal fee. If it does not suit you you might as well get rid of it.

Hell, I'll ship my 36 with TFO's to MA for 700 bucks!!!

Haha a 2.5 gen G26 just sold at a shop for $695. And they deal with a huge volume. The SR22 is $289 there and the SR9c is $399. Goes to show that we pay a lot for our Glocks.

So the 36 has some recoil ? I almost bought one but decided on the gen 3 19. The main reason for the 36 was for carry being slimmer. Having a hard time right now deciding what holster for the 19. 700 is strong $ for that 36 ,must be your area.

I paid $410. for a very slightly used G36 @ a Portland, OR gunshow back in 2010. Has become my main CCW. Cheers.

I have shot a lot of Glocks and I feel the G36 recoil is more than a G19 but not much.

Here in MA , the G36 will sell for $700 easy and I can trade for a G19 in a heartbeat. Someone made me an offer last night and the barrel has been polished. He told me that Glock will refinish the barrel. Is this true? Thanks Glocktalk. Here's some pictures he sent.

Recoil be damned.... it's not designed to be a "range" gun.

If you don't care for the recoil of a 45, whatever you do, never purchase a 40, 357 sig, or 10MM! You will be very displeased! Of course, if you are going to get, $700, for a used 36, by all means, get one of each, then sell them. With your profits, you'd get a free gun!:supergrin:

I don't like the 40, I should have just bought the G19. But yeah, even Gen 2 G22's sell here for around $549, even in horrible condition. Maybe only some of you know that Glock will not sell new Glocks in MA. Only private sales and handguns made before 1998 are the exceptions.

any short barrel gun worth caarying, 9mm to 45 will have a fair amount of recoil. maybe you should rent a g19 and find out how it compares. a few lessons in firing and recoil control might be useful.:wavey:

You Glock guys will faint when you see these prices. This gun shop has the lowest prices around too. People drive for 2-3hrs just to come here. They currently have M&P range kits for $509.

I'd just get the seller to either come off the price because of the barrel or pass. If you are going to get it refinished check into IONbond. Might as well upgrade the finish.

Thanks! I was skeptical too, he said he polished off the barrel because the wear starting exposing the steel. Sounded fishy to me! I might just buy a new G19 Gen 4.

I've polished the barrels on about half the Glocks I have owned.

I really do not understand it when people say that a handgun in .45ACP has too much recoil.
It seems rather pleasant to me.
Perhaps you have never shot a .44 mag. That seems to have some recoil to me but certainly not so much that I wouldn't want to shoot it or keep the gun.
The 36 is a gun meant to be carried, and for close range combat.
It is not a target shooter.
Shoot a 7mm mag out of a 14" Thompson Contender and then tell me about recoil.
I have a friend who thinks that is fun.
Nuts!!!

The black oxide will eventually wear showing the tenifer coating beneath. It is not bare steel he was seeing. And you can polish the tenifer away. I'd be wary of the gun if he told me that wondering what other things he didn't understand or do to the gun for no reason.

I don't see any reason to get a 19 if you're going to be limited to only 10 round mags. I would move...

Very true and no one ever brings that up.

I have to concentrate to feel the recoil difference between 9/40/357/45 in similar size guns. To me a 40 is slightly more on the stout side but not by much.

I can get 15 round preban magazines which are not too hard to get. Maybe $35 $40 for one. I really want the 19!

I sold my G36 for a G19 too. Much happier!

To all those going on about .45 recoil, its way more about the felt recoil from the G36 itself. Probably due to the thin frame. I shot a G38 shortly after trading and was MUCH nicer to shoot.

Pretty sure tenifer is a treatment not a coating. IIRC, you would have to remove more than just the coating to lose the tenifer.

If you want the 19, go for it. You can always put in a better barrel later.

Yeah I can sell it for $700, but even if you can find a NIB Glock in MA, it's at least $600 easy. I paid $625 + 6.25% sales tax for my G36 because it was a special order and they didn't sell a lot of them.

If it doesn't sell, I will still buy the G19:winkie:

It's not the .45 recoil. The skinny little G36 grip feels good in the hand and great on the waist, but seems to really transmit the recoil impulse. My G30 and G30SF are noticably softer shooters than my G36.

Grip size aside the Glock 30 I had was 15.6 ounces of slide weight versus 12.4 on my 36. I fired 45 Supers through the 30 no problem. With the 36 I am comfortable with standard 45 ACP loads but the +Ps are uncomfortable.

I think the G36 is the best glock avaible , and may pick one up this week :)

Can you share why you think it's the best one? I love the Gen4 G19 so far. It's a fun gun to shoot and like all Glocks, easy to work on and carry.

Its the easiest to cary in the Glock lineup and 7 rounds of .45 is enough for any social situation one might encounter

I'm sure there are a lot of people who could give examples of why that is no where near accurate. I have been guilty of carring 5 rounds because it's easy. I know the odds are in my favor of not needing more but I wouldn't say I'm good for ANY situation with 7 rounds.

ColdDayInHell
08-27-2012, 14:49
I wasn't comfortable carrying 6 rounds of 45ACP when I had my 36. It was such a snappy gun and I couldn't acquire the target fast enough with it. With the 19, I can keep all my shots an inch around the bullseye and in MA, can have 15+1 in the gun with preban magazines. The 36 hasn't had its' kinks worked out yet IMO and it wasn't the right gun for me. The 19 suits me perfect and is a joy to shoot.

Not this again. No you can't!!! Tenifer is NOT a coating, it is a metal treatment.

just traded away an extra 23 for a 30SF, always wanted to try the .45ACP...i think many return to the 9mm, because they are not willing to work through the alleged recoil, they have a low recoil threshold...in the end they will spiral down to a .380 or the .25cal / .22cal...just my lousy back-east cranky opinion... :)

Nope. One just sold for $800. G26 Gen 2's sell for $700 here all day long. Check out the cheapest gun shop around here : they have lowest prices on guns. Www.fsguns.com/used

And I traded my 36 for a NIB Gen4 G19! Not the one the guy polished. I'd stay away from those.

Sorry. Far from it. The Glock 19, or 23 are far better all around and just as easy to conceal. The 26 and 27 are also better, but far easier to conceal.

Man up guys. Recoil? It's just sight alignment and trigger control. The rest is up to you.

If you ever need to use that gun in a "social Situation" you will never notice the recoil. Own five Glocks, (and five other CCW candidates) each one has its own unique specialness - but the G36 gets carried most often. Cheers.

I had both for a bit. A G19 and a G36. The G36 was a tough pistol to master (if I ever really "mastered" it). The G19 is a sweet bullet-launcher.

I sold the G36 because I just never got a good day at the range with it. Months later I sold the G19 in order to buy a G30. Now we're talking.

The G30 is the most accurate Glock I ever owned. Amazing critter with its own ability to find the bullseye. LOL The felt recoil is less than the G36, and overall nothing bad about the kick at all. I like the idea of having a few extra rounds over the G36, but like others have said, doubtful I'll ever need more than a few shots anyway.

I've read plenty of reports from folks all agreeing that the G30 is a very accurate pistol.

OP- Good luck with your G19!!!!
