    HK G36C... DROOOOOOOL!!!

    Yep, I finally got to put one through the paces. I'd rather have shot the longer version, but you take what you can get! Here's a snapshot of the shooting session. This is the largest flash I could get out of the thing. Most ammo was completely devoid of flash! That flash suppressor really did the trick. It was about 5 above today. Toes got cold after a few hours of burning up ammo but boy was it fun. Videos will be forthcoming. I have to figure out how to get them hosted.

    Awwwwww, crap. I guess I need somebody with some web space to host these for me. Any takers? In the meantime, I'll email the videos to anybody who PM's me with their email address.

    I'd love to have that gun, but it's a little out of my price range:(

    Hmm interesting how the camera shows the flash, I couldnt see it at all and I was shootin right next to ya..

    The best was watching the snow trickle off the roof every time the 10 inch barrelled FAL went off...

    I swapped out the Wolf ammo that I was burning up for some reloads that were neck-resized for a TC Contender barrel I didn't have anymore. Only gun that would shoot this ammo was an HK-93 that I no longer. HK didn't let me down, their G36 ate it and came back for more! The reloads must have had a different powder mix.

    It took me about ten minutes of video capture drills to find the one frame that had flash in it. The videos are cool, anybody want to host them for me?

    It was sunny and nice out. The pictures are frame captures from my Sony Handycam. I didn't have it set on backlight, or the pictures would have been much better. I'll have it down next shoot... hope the weather is nicer.

    I particularly liked the Kitty Kat... She purred really nice! :evil:

    Okay, some more. Yes, this registered SBR was blowing the snow off the top of the canopy. The concussion from this gun was nearly unbearable. There was a really effective muzzle brake on the gun. In DSA’s defense, the shooter felt little of the direct blast, although it did reflect off the ceiling. Standing next to the gun was an EXPERIENCE though.

    My overall impression of the G36 was HIGHLY favorable. The 'plastic' parts are very well molded and SOLID. In fact, the gun feels more solid than the M-16... mostly because there is no upper/lower wobble. The cheek weld is solid and natural. The gun seems to point better than the M16. The parts were all very well finished and fitted. There was no play in any of the parts. Reaching in with a gloved hand to operate the charging handle was no problem. You can use the charging handle as a forward assist if necessary. Only complaint in that area is that there is no bolt release. I had to reach into the magazine well with my index finger to operate the hold-open and then swing the operating handle to the side and retract it to release the bolt.

    As for what I've heard others say about the mag release position, I found that it was just as easy to slip your index finger under the trigger guard to operate the release as it was to push the button on the M-16. In fact, because it's ambidexterous, I think the paddle release is SUPERIOR. The trigger guard was luxuriously spacious. My gloved hands had ABSOLUTELY no problem with getting into the trigger guard. The magazines were really easy to load. They are essentially flat with a shelf on the top. This makes it very simple to roll the rounds right into the mag. My only complaint was that there was only one mag available. I would have loved to clip two together and done a combat reload drill.

    The stock latching to the ejection port buffer was very solid and didn't appear to have any wear troubles. The stock was difficult to unlatch and deploy with my gloved hand. Gloves kept getting stuck in the mechanism! Only other complaint was the weather. It didn't cause the gun any trouble. Gun appeared to have been cleaned with some teflon-based cleaner that was gumming up on the outside of the bolt carrier as teflon will do in cold weather however this didn't effect function a bit.

    Badger, by any chance did you get that HK from the same guy who Wild got the Sig 550 from?

    When you guys do take the 550 for a spin, please post a range report as well. Thanks.

    Also, do feel free to do a torture test comparison between all the rifles:D

    We'll get a video of the SBR up as well. Not as fun as the full-autos though.
