Haha,Halliburton wants me for $10k/y more, can’t say no
Congratulations, and not really. I have amassed several more guns I didn't really "need" (I actually did need them), and obviously the new forum setup.Finally back from Army training... 15 weeks of insanity and I'm itching to get back into things after I get settled in. Anything important I may have missed in the past 4 months?
I loved/hated that platform when I had a couple of them. At least the gearbox was fairly easy to work on. Of all the things, I remember hating the battery compartment and area where the hop up unit was located at. I kind of remember having a lot of issues with air leaks between the nozzle from the gb and the hop upI am growing more and more convinced a sadist designed the JG g36.
Nice, some friends of mine had quite a few of the JG M4s and G36s back in 2008-2010ish and they worked great. They mostly ran them until they broke, but they were reliable for a long time. I got mine fairly cheap back in 2015ish, but I do remember the entire handguard/battery compartment being super annoying. I had wired mine with a small gate mosfet iirc, but it was such a mess (and I think that was after I had bought the extended G36K handguard as well).Last time I owned one was ~2005, back when I was still doing paintball (Spyder mr1, teardrop, co2 w/ remote line, bunch of little stuff). Picked another JG up recently on the cheap as it's mechanically a basket case, slowly restoring/rebuilding. So much weird crap in there. Not looking forward to cramming a battery + 'FET into the handguard
Haha, thanks, it was a mess when I first got it, but I tried putting some tlc into it when I fixed it up. I think I only used the main one I had (the G36k) a handful of times at the field before I sold it. The photo below shows my G36k up front and a buddy with his JG G36c on the right during a game at the local field back in 2016 or so.Some quality work and documentation in there, will definitely give it a more in depth read before piecing this one back together. Everything is so new and shiny on yours
That's insane that you fit a NiMh in there with everything else 🤯 I have vague memories of wiring one of the ones I had to the rear with an external battery pack to hold a bigger lipo, but I could be thinking of something elseWay back in the day (~2011ish) I managed to fit a 3034 FET, wiring, deans plug and a 10.8v NiMh battery in the handguard with a little effort.
