||AG36 Grenade Launcher
Classic Army AG36
I had sold my STAR AG36, and wanted to replace it, and I decided on getting the CA AG36, as it was a lot cheaper. I placed my order for the AG36 and some other bits from Uncompany, and it was shipped very quickly, however Customs and Excise messed up, and I was overcharged a lot, which I had to resolve, which increase my wait. However, this had nothing to do with UnCo, which were excellent.
A week after, the gun arrived, so I did this review. It comes in a nice blue box, with the gun itself packaged away very securely.
After removing it, I had a good feel of the gun. The fore grip unsurprisingly, is made of the same plastic the Classic Army G36 line is made out of, which is very nice to hold, and a lot better then the STAR (More on this later)
I flicked up the tube, which like the STAR one (itís a replica of an AG36 anyway, so it should be like this anyway) buy pushing a little button in front of the trigger. The action was very crisp, the one my STAR wasnít so, but this may because it was second hand. The tube is a nice Aluminium
The safety catch is excellent, it has a very definite click to it, and it doesnít feel like it is going to fall off anytime soon, like my STAR.
It also comes with a pin, this is useful as I lost mine, and it is a different length, as the leaf sight on the side covers the side, so it needs to be shorter unless you want it to protrude.
There isnít a whole lot to say on this, as it is really a tube with a fore grip, but it is quite time consuming to take apart, to replace a battery, and if you are not concentrating, can take a long time to put back together.
The gun taken apart.
You can fit a stick battery in here, I use a 9.6v intellect 1400 stick, it requires some fiddiling, but it is doable
Comparison to STAR.
In Short, the Classic Army is the better buy. It is a lot cheaper, and the build quality is a lot better. It is a dark black like the CA36 bodies, whereas the STAR is a bluely grey. However, the STAR did have trades, whereas the CA does not, but that is a moot point for me as I am not bothered by trades or lack of them.
These are the only differences, as said, grenade launchers are pretty simple things, and there isnít things I could go into details like I could an AEG, such as internals etc.
You cannot fit this on a CA36K without modding the front of the ag36, as the flashider will not fit, you just need to file it down or dremel it, here are the results of mine:
And this is what the metal block looks like after filing:
Note, although you can see I filed though the screw holes, this isn't a problem, as the screws are short and don't go in that far, just abit into the larger bits on either side.
