    Anyony tried +P ammo in your m36? I picked up
    60 rounds of PowRBall 165 gr +P yesterday at a good price.
    know my 1911's will handle it ok, but I'd like to carry it in my
    36 as well since it's my daily carry piece.
    Thanks,
    Dano

    When I first got my 36, I tried a few +P rounds (Speer GD)....
    The recoil was a bit more than standard loading, and I didn't notice any significant improvement in accuracy or functionality....so I've stuck to the standard velocity loads.....YMMV.....

    Thanks for the reply. I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't
    damage my baby:embarassed: I need to get the manual out and check
    to see if Glock says it's a no-no.
    Thanks again,
    Dano

    I use a lot of +P in my 36. Glocks are designed to handle +P without a problem.

    Thanks Jim. I know Glocks are tough. Just curious more than
    concerned.
    Appreciate the reply,
