    Mine has been perfect. Great carry gun and would highly recommend it. Carry in a MTAC holster.

    Mine has been great, no malfunctions at all. I don't have a firm count but I'd guesstimate 1,200, no issues.

    My Glock-36 is several years old...never a problem...love the gun, and it's my EDC.

    My G36 has been flawless and accurate. I don't carry it much. For me it is harder to conceal than my 1911s. It is just as easy for me to conceal my G22. I think a G27 would probably get more carry time from me if I had one.

    I've shot a 36 as a rental on two different occasions and it jammed both times. None of the other Glocks I rented had any problems and some of them were NASTY DIRTY.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Mine rides in an Occidental Gunleather Phoenix and it is very comfy. I did have the problem with the factory mag pinching my little finger, but i put the Pierce +0 baseplates on and the problem is gone.

    I too use the +0 base plates on all my G36 mags. Never a problem in hundreds of rounds.

    I agree about the Pierce +0 extension. I have larger hands and the OEM mags pinched the he'll out if my pinkie causing blood blisters.

    Is it just me, or did anyone else read post #2, and notice the cause for kabooms stems from shooting lead bullets? Dont think so friend.

    I have shot about 2000 trouble free rounds through mine.

    Yup, me too! I carry the 36 most of the time these days. mine is getting well worn and has yet to fail shooting anything I feed it. The dang thing just grows on you!

    The common issue in all short-barreled .45 ACPs is the lack of the usual slide mass used to control recoil. This is offset by a good strong spring, so the spring is critical. You have to change the spring every so often to assure reliability because it really takes a beating in these small .45 pistols. If you do that and keep it clean it should be fine.
