    I read that some people have feeding issues after installing the +1 grip extensions on the G36. Any truth to it? I have yet to fire the gun. Just bought yesterday but I already added the extensions on the the two mags that came with it. I try to keep things as stock as possible but I liked the added length on the end.

    I've never had an issue. I believe some people say since the floor plate is farther away, the spring tension would be less, causing a possible feeding problem...and that you should replace with stronger aftermarket spring. But since there's an extra round taking up the space, why would that be the case, except maybe on the very last round? I carry with a +0, but most of my backup mags are all +1. Other than that, I'm stock. When I go to the range with the 36, it's usually with +1 mags...after maybe 1500 rounds, I have NEVER had a single malfunction with this gun. Give it a try.

    Ok, thanks. I will head there tomorrow and put it thru the hoops. I prefer to have the extension but not if it means having issues. Only one way to find out...

    I had problems with the +1. I recently added a Wolff mag spring and no problems since. If you plan on using the +1, get some of the Wolff Magazine springs.
