Just got a used G36 off Gunbroker...older pistol in like new condition. Here is the problem: In a relatively few rounds (new Winchester PDX 230 grain ammo) I had one failure to eject and one near failure where the shell case lip was forced into the trailing edge of the feed ramp and cut to the point that the case is now unsuable. However, the round did eject from the pistol and the piece continued to run. I also ran a magazine of 230 grain ball through rapid fire and experienced no problems of any kind. Has anyone else experienced problems of this nature? If so what was the solution? Does anyone know if Glock has a position on the issue. I thought about a replacement extractor but once again, the pistol has had less than abox of ammo run through it. Help me out here guys.

(Wrong subforum aside)

Historically, from what I've read on this forum and others, the G36 has been Glock's least-reliable model. I've heard of more problems with the G36 than any other model and I believe it's the reason there aren't more single-stack Glock models. Sorry I can't tell you exactly what you might be experiencing, but when you say a G36 isn't running right it doesn't surprise me.
