    All the TFO's can be seen here http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Search.aspx?TERM=tru-

    Old G36 will need to file the front sight screw. New G36 are not affected by the front sight screw.

    How do you tell if your G36 is new or old? Remove the slide & barrel. Look at the front sight hole from the inside of the slide. If the front sight hole has a small ring milled around it you have a newer G36. You can install any sight you want.
    If you have an early G36 the front sight hole will be flat. You must file the front sight screw down until it fits over the barrel.

    FYI: +1 works best with the G36

    Glock Number to Aftermarket Number Chart:
    Glock Factory 6.1 = -1 Aftermarket
    Glock Factory 6.5 = +0 Aftermarket
    Glock Factory 6.9 = +1 Aftermarket
    Glock Factory 7.3 = +2 Aftermarket
    -1 (6.1) and +2 (7.3) primarily used for sight adjustment.

    The G36 is normally issued with a +1 or 6.9

    Ok. Well I have an older 36, so fitting will be required. No problem, as it's what I do now that I'm retired. Is there a particular TFO part I need?

    Nope, nothing available. You are going to have to file down the front screw
