    I'm taking the plunge on a G36 Bullpup build, but need a donor. JG, S&T, Cyma, Ares, I'm not bothered, as long as it has a working gearbox and pistol grip! Let me know what you've got.

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

  2. I don't think they'll make an Edge version unfortunately - this G36 is pretty much a carbon copy of an Ares, so my guess is that they use the same factory. I couldn't see them forking out for new tooling for another G36. It'd definitely be nice though; just a better sight and more standardised hop unit and I'd be happy!
  3. No problem! Yeah, the hop up situation isn't the best; I tried adapting a Lonex one for my S&T G36, but it wasn't terribly successful. I'd definitely recommend getting a secondhand TM or a JG if you want to upgrade it. The only aftermarket hop I've found specifically for Ares etc is this one: https://www.evike.com/products/81085/ But unfortunately it's out of stock. Edit: Upon looking again, I'm not even sure if this would work.
  4. Yeah, the M4's are nice, I grabbed one of their PDW's a few months back. Solid RIF, but it was one that had one of the dodgy Mosfets in it. It'd fire on safe, when you changed fire mode, or even just when you bumped the gun into something. Updated it through the computer and haven't had a problem since.
  5. I'll have to keep an eye open then! And I wish I had that sort of cash, but I'd be way too afraid of that getting shot out 😱
  6. If I could afford one of those, I'd have it in a heartbeat! I think it's more of a novelty situation for me though as opposed to practicality. I run my other G36 with just a scope and T1 on the rail above it, gets the job done!
  7. Here's a quick review of my G-13. Picture is not mine. So, I picked up one of the Specna Arms G36's with the intention of turning it into an MG36 eventually, here are my thoughts on it. The gun is almost identical to my S&T G36 asides a few quality points; the body seems more sturdy, the pins feel less flimsy and the actual gearbox mechanism feels less cheap. The replica looks great (duh, it's a G36), fits together easily and is super quick to strip down. I had a new spring and bucking in the rifle in under 10 minutes. A few points that could be improved: - S&T/Ares/Umarex G36's don't have the best feed. This was something I'd hoped would be fixed with the Specna version, but unfortunately not. I still get the odd double feed on full auto. - It uses the annoying older hop unit like on the S&T models, which is proprietary to this series. JG/TM hops are not compatible, and as such, there are no options for upgrades here. - The alignment of the barrel was slightly off. Now, it sounds like I'm panning the gun; I'm not. One thing I will pan though is the dual scope/red dot setup. Put simply, it's shoddy. There isn't enough adjustment in either of them. Due to the cheap build of the sight unit, if you need to zero your sights to the right, you're done for. I'm currently modifying both the scope and red dot so that they can move further to be adjusted effectively. The scope is quite an easy fix; there is a rubber grommet that sits around the muzzle end of the scope, this can be removed to allow for more movement. If you want details on this, let me know. The red dot sight is another beast entirely. This is 100% the cheapest part of the gun. Badly put together, badly moulded and completely unserviceable without basically pulling the whole unit apart and almost starting from scratch. I have literally no idea how this part was put together in the factory. I'll be working on fixing this part for a while I suspect. I'm tempted to cut it in half and rebuild it altogether. Now, don't get me wrong, there is a LOT of gun here for the price (I think I paid about £126 from Gunfire). It shoots (relatively) well, the RoF is decent on a 7.4, FPS is consistent, even the proprietary hop unit isn't bad. I'd happily pay more for the sight to be better quality though. If anyone has any questions about the gun, feel free to ask.

    I'm looking for spare parts for my G36, I'm not bothered about the variant but would love it if they were Ares/Star/Umarex/Specna!

    £123.00

  10. Hi all! I'm hoping that someone around Manchester has a GATE USB link that I could use to fix and update the Gate Aster on my Specna? If you could help me out I'd be grateful, and there'd definitely be something in it for you!
