glock 36

Postby judoka » Sat Aug 02, 2014 1:57 am

Anyone own a glock 36? I've been looking at possibly buying one as a back up gun. My glock 23 is a little too big. I played with one today and liked it but haven't gotten to fire one yet.
Anyone had any issues with these?

hickok45 on youtube has a video on it. His videos are informative and fun to watch.

He does some size comparisons too. Maybe that'll help you out.

No personal experience though.

I have a glock 36 and carried it daily for several years. Its a great gun but I really wish they would re-design it with a full lenght handle so the magazzine wouldnt be part of the grip.

If you get one, remember like all glocks, the plastic stock sights really suck so anytime I buy a Glock, I figure new sights into the price of the gun. Also get pearce +0 grip adapters or use an o ring because getting pinched by the mad/handle is a common problem with this gun.

Thanks. I still haven't bought it, but am going to. Just haven't had the time to go pick it up. As crappy as the glock sights are, I shoot fine with them. I've had a 23 for about 6 years and never changed them out. I will definitely look at the grip adapter.

I had a friend in DEA who carried one as a BUG. He liked it, but like all subcompacts, they have their downsides, such as a high-stress, "combat" reload will likely take a chunk out of your hand, since there's just usually not enough mag well to clear the meat of your hand.

But you may not even be carrying extra mags for your BUG, so that might be an issue you can live with.

I traditionally didn't carry an extra mag for my bug, but that's because I had a glock 22 as my primary and a 23 as my secondary. Now that I carry a glock 21, I'll probably carry an extra mag for the 36 since they're not interchangeable.

I have had mine for about 2 years and it is my primary carry gun. It is comfortable to carry all day and is more accurate. You will surely love glock 36.

My comment about the sights was less about the usability and more about the durability. I also shoot fine with standard glock sights but they are cheap plastic things that can break easily. I replace them with a standard steel sight if its a gun Im going to Carry regularily.
