Hey guys. I bought a G36 last weekend. 6 FTEs in the first 100 rounds, right out of the box. Brought it home, cleaned and oiled, another 4 FTEs in the next 100 rounds. I'm having a hard time with the whole "perfection" thing.

Hopefully someone here can help you. Post your problem in the General Glocking section and I'm sure someone will give you some help. Did you try using different types of ammo?

Howdy from Texas. Buy the biggest grain boolit like 230 gr and shoot 500 rds to loosen up the recoil spring. That should fix your FTE's. Also save your brass because one day you might want to start reloading.
