Mg36

The MG36 is a light support weapon used mainly by the German army and special forces units around the world. I would like to purchase a G36 and convert it into a MG36 (classified as a Full length G36 with a Bipod and Beta C-Mag). However, AO rules say one can carry 600 rounds for a standard weapon and 2000 for a support weapon. After I convert, would my finished product be considered a support weapon? If not, what else would I have to do for the gun to be classified as a support weapon?

That is going to depend upon the event organizer and the event you are attending. Some rules require you also have a bi pod attached.

More than not it is considered a support weapon, especially with the real-world examples of the gun. The AK47 and the G36 are one of the few assault rifles that can be converted into support weapons without raising eyebrows.

Yes this is in fact a support weapon in my opinion,
If the Germans use it as there support weapon you should be able to too.

Because I am infact german (born there too)

and anybody who does not support the fact that the mg36 is a support weapon, well I find that person racist against germany and there highly advanced millitary small arms.

There are many varients of the G36, and one of them is infact a support weapon. and if you want to challenge me in this matter I will be very upset, and probally "gossip" about you behind your back.

so thats my 32 cents worth

You should not speak M&N. It hurts my intelligence to read your posts.

This conversation has already happened too many times just press the search button.

ware did you hear that the mg36 is used in the Heer cause last time i checked the use the mg4 and they tested with the mg36 this much is true but the rest of your facts are skewed. m&n made a fool of himself for agreeing to that statement.
http://world.guns.ru/machine/mg40-e.htm
and they use the mg3 on vehicles such as tanks, wolf and side door guns ect.
http://world.guns.ru/machine/mg33-e.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_army

but if you are willing to find facts and proof i will back down and say you were right

A simple search reveals many fruitful bounties...

As for the thread, the MG36 is a Squad Automatic Weapon for the current German military.

As to the original post, You would need a heavy barrel, long hand-guard, Optics rail, a Beta-Co Drum Mag.

I'd like to take this thread in another direction, although I need to make it clear that I'm not trying to hijack the thread. I think it would be cool to know what fields allow the MG36, and what qualifications must be met for it to be classified as a legal support weapon. So, could field owners please contribute by letting us know what qualifications must be met for the MG36 to be allowed onto their field as a support weapon. Thanks.

i yet to see why you attempted to neg me mac, I searched mg36 and all i got was some airsoft stuff descriptions of the different variants and people whom admire the weapon. with no proof with what you said is like me saying the usp is the German heers side arm (its not its the p8 looks very similar)

but to be on track here none the less it would be a nice thing to see some mix up in the blend of SAW's used in the field. i would just suggest it being a full length with th bi pod and mabey even the star g36 top rail which has the red dot built on top of your 3x sight.

If you would notice, I did not negatively affect your reputation. In-fact I didn't believe that It warranted a negative reputation change. However, I would give you a Negative rep point for your lack of sentence structure.

http://www.google.com/search?num=100...h+MG36&spell=1

Would the information retrieved by this search not prove that

As for the USP and P8, the P8 is a specialized and modified USP

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heckler...h_USP#Variants
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P8_pistol



As for the MG36, I believe and many people will back me up here, as long as your rifle meets the requirements (bipod, long hand-guard, optics cary handle) the limited capacity shouldn't be a problem.

I'm just gonna go ahead and quit because i can tell your just anther ignorant American, who isn't going to accept anything and and cant understand a comparison and is getting this thread derailed. Also i said attempt because you contradicted your self by giving positive rep but said i fail.

PS. and no if you even clicked on all those links you didn't get any information on the German heer. just different variants and pictures and one video of some guy shooting it in fleckntarn doesn't mean anything.

Please, by all means, do quit. Check your facts, because you're wrong. Check your spelling, capitalization, punctuation, etc, because you sound totally ignorant.

http://world.guns.ru/assault/as14-e.htm

Follow the link, and read the last line of the 4th paragraph from the bottom. Never mind, I'm sure counting that high will be to hard for you. I'll just quote it:


"G36 is fed from the proprietary 30-rounds box magazines, made from translucent plastic. All magazines have special studs on its sides, so two or three magazines can be clipped together for faster reloading. The magazine housings of the G36 are made as a separate parts, so G36 can be easily adjusted to the various magazine interfaces. By the standard, the magazine release catch is located just behind the magazine, in the G3 or AK-47 style, rather than on the side of the magazine housing (M16-style). A 100-round Beta-C dual drum magazines of US origins also can be used (these magazines are standard for the MG36 squad automatic versions of the G36)."

Where the hell did that come from? Someone is a little testy today. Lets clean up our English alittle too shall we?

The Strikers have identified the MG36 as exactly how TFMD has described it, long barreled with a bipod and optical carry-handle. Therefore, I believe they would accept it at their events. Dont take my word on it. My source of evidence: http://www.airsoftevents.com/weapons...irsoft_name=24.

In other respects, the MG36 is the natural evolution of all the 5.56 based G36 weapons, and a contendor to the FN M249, so it would be logical to conclude that the MG36 WILL be used in later years as a weapon of choice not only by Germany but any nation with a H&K manufacturing plant. ALSO, in a earlier issue of Airsoft International, an article on the German KSK mentioned the elite Special Operations unit made use of the G36 series weapons INCLUDING the MG36.

Sniper1, I would go ahead and build the gun, no one is going to stop you from doing so, and if anyone prevents you from using it at the gates, Ill eat my hat.

I do not know how i frayed of topic, but i dont believe my post is of, maybee just a dash of too much sarcasm, and i do apologize for that, But i was trying to give Sniper1 an aswer to his question, wich is yes as long as it fallows along the plan of the real MG36 he should in fact be alloud to call it a light support weapon, 8ut the MG36 is in fact a german light support weapon in use today. I may not have a fruigless website to back this up. But I do have many familly members in the Germany army now, My uncle Harrold when he was in weapons training they did infact have an MG36 in there weapons line up. as for me I am a German citizen and if you would like soon I shall be joining the German army and I can report back to all of you in a few years when I have my first

Here are my facts since you over looked them.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_army
Scroll down to weapons and show me mg36 please do i would like to see it and all you see there is "Heckler & Koch MG4—5.56 mm light machine gun, replacing the MG3 in the squad automatic weapon role".

and one last thing.

I do not trust wikipedia with all there resualts, Just because you cannot find a certain weapon on an online dictionary, does not mean it doesnt excist. If you can find an official government web site backing what you are saying, mabee I will be a little more inclinded to believe you over my German relatives who I have met, and whom they have sacrificed there sweat, time, and loyalty to there county. where I was born in and spend the better part of my summers there. disclaimer~ none of this should be taken personally, and none of this should be taken as a form of hostility.

Wikipedia is not considered a factual source by most people. While it is mostly factual, it is rarely complete. Try again.

Re you're "one last thing": I've seen that picture before. Usually it's pulled out by the person who's wrong and/or losing the argument. Congrats on continuing the trend.

As mentioned, it depends on the event organizer. However, if done correctly and it accurately replicates the real MG36 cosmetically, it would be allowed as a support weapon for TAC events. Like I said though, it needs to replicate the real MG36 as close as possible though.
