    Post A Glock 36 Write Up

    I know that one forum member was possibly interested in the 36.

    Glock Model 36
    Slimline “Perfection” from Glock

    FRANK BORELLI
    Equipment Reviewer
    Officer.com

    Way back in October of 1982, I entered the U.S. Army, committed to becoming a Military Policeman.
    The duty sidearm, at that time, was the Government Model .45 ACP.
    Needless to say, my early training at the hands of my military instructors gave me a deep and abiding appreciation for the .45 ACP cartridge.
    I can't say, however, that I ever grew to truly love carrying a sidearm that large with only a seven round capacity and that proved sometimes inconvenient to conceal when carried off-duty.
    Further, carrying a weapon cocked-and-locked tended to raise a few eyebrows for those who weren't as educated.
    Enter the Glock Model 36: much lighter; much smaller; no hammer-back carry to raise eyebrows; easier to conceal off duty; and, in the configuration I have mine, carrying eight rounds of .45 ACP.

    When Glock introduced the Model 36, it was a breakaway gun for them: a design that incorporated all of the safety and functionality of other Glocks, but unique in that it had only a single-stack magazine. Prior to the Model 36, Glock had two other pistols in .45 ACP available:........................................ .............................

    I've been eying these down too. It does seem to be the perfect Conceal carry weapon.

    Great write up...not anything I had considered until now. Do you own one of these? Thanks for the article.

    As Per Another Forum Topic

    Yes, I do.
    I really like mine.

    Mine has Tiitium Night Sights & a LaserMax so it's it's a great amazing little chopped carry gun for me.

    Warning though....you'll probably either love it or you'll hate it.
    Shoot one before you buy one...if possible.

    I'll post a pic of mine here this evening.

    I have a G30 & a 36. The wife claimed the 36 for her carry gun and I carry the 30 (among others). Both shoot real well, but really not too much difference in comfort and concealment. She carries her's in a special purse and I carry in a Don Hume IWB. I agree, shoot them both.

    I carry the G22 at work, but use the G36 after hours. I wish had a G30 to round out my collection which would give me both specific summer & winter CCW gear.

    I'll have to see if I can rent or borrow a G36 someplace. I have held a G30 and thought it was too thick (I have little hands) but G36s are scarce around here for some reason.
    Well, gives me an excuse to head around to a few gun shops!

    I think of all the Glock models the 36 is the "controversial" Glock.

    There are even a few steadfast Glockers on Glock Talk that hate it.

    I think it is the collection of 1911 haters.. The .45acp diet makes it just a little too much like a 1911 for them..

    Nice write up! I enjoyed reading it.

    Thanks for the link! The G36 is on my wife's wish list... We're going to attempt to make it to the range the first weekend of August for her to shoot one.

    I had a G36 great gun. I felt it was to big for a small gun (may carry is a PM9) I really didn't care for the mag extensions. They are definitely add on's .I use a standard 7 shot mag in the PM9. This gives me a place to put my little finger. The G36 mag ext. hung up on reloads. I wish someone would make longer mags for the G36. A 10 shot mag would be nice

    I have a G30; didn’t get the G36 because it won’t accept G21/G30 magazines. I have small hands and the grip is fine; let you guys know how the grip feels when I slap on some Lasergrips.

    PS-Anyone in Puerto Rico who wants to shoot a G30 before buying one is welcome to contact me – you buy the ammo of course.
