Germany's New Infantry Rifle

Recommended Posts

Keep G36 I hope. If it were half as crap as some allege why are so many buying it?


The first production lots have to be replaced and the later lots reach end of life as well in the following years. So to me it makes sense to introduce a successor that is better suited to today kitchen sink that is going to be mounted on rifles. But all the back and forth UvdL could have spared us all.



The G36 is designed around the plastic receiver. replacing it with metal makes the resulting gun rather heavy. OTOH barrels and bolts & carriers etc. are still fine, whereas the plastic receivers reach the age limit. so this recycling of parts has an appeal. Especially as teh whole bolt carrier asembly is a rather complex and expensive piece in the G36.
