G36 Still Perfect

Third trip to the range w/ my June 2009 production G36 - still functions flawlessly. My friend's finger did get pinched in the gap between mag extension (Pearce) and grip. Have heard that this is hit/miss depending upon finger fatness. I have thinner fingers and have never been pinched.

nice to hear..
I have yet to fire my Oct 2009 G36.....

Being unemployed makes it hard to justify range fees right now.

Congrats! I finally got the 230 grain round nose lead bullets I ordered. They came in Tuesday. I only had time to load 20 rounds, but they all fed and shot flawlessly through the L.W. barrel. The more I shoot the 36, the more I like it. It is now my every day carry gun.

My L.W. barrel arrived yesterday. Man, it took forever to get here. Not L.W.'s fault, just the shipping time since I only paid for the cheapest method.

Seems to fit well and seems to chamber ammo fine. Looking forward to shooting it this weekend. I gave into the pressure to get the L.W. barrel even tho have never had any issues with my factory barrel.

The pressure I felt was 1) more support for the bullet and 2) leading (was never an issue for me) and 3) was told the brass life will be longer with the L.W. barrel.

Anyway, now I have one and am looking forward to shooting it. Not really happy or excited, but am going to give it a try.

Heck, it took me forever to buy a Glock, no suprise I'm having trouble digesting a L.W. barrel. (look at me now, love the Glock)
