I have been considering getting a G36 for a few weeks now. I went to the range yesterday and rented one. It appeared to be in great condition, and I purchased a box of name brand ammo, not relaods. After firing the second shot, the gun jammed!! I dropped the magazine, and the slide was no longer jammed. The gun had controllable recoil, and i was able to firs it as accurately as my G19. However, I would never buy a gun that jams, and only having six rounds was a little annoying. It is about the same size as a compact glock, so maybe a G26 or 27 would be better.
