The G-36 is a gas operated selective fire 5.56x45mm assault rifle designed by HK in the early 1990's.
Unlike most assault rifles the G-36 has a free floating barrel (does not make contact with the hand-guard). the G-36 has a Chrome-lined bore with 6 right hand grooves and a 1 in 178mm (1:7) rifling twist rate. This mean that the bullet does a full rotation in the barrel every 7 inches. The G36 has a rate of fire of 750 rounds per minute.

This gun is banned by California law, but is available in most states.
The G36 is a fun shooter, plus one of my personal favorites do to its distinct design, low recoil, built in sights, and just the beauty of it.

The G36 attachments include: Scope, grenade launcher, bayonet, flashlight, laser, fore-grip, silencer, and any type of top sight.

Currently there are 8 variations of this rifle
the most popular ones being the G36 (Standard), G36C (compact), MG36 ( machine gun),
G36KV ( export upgrade).
