Got a problem: all mags (new & used) are catching and not dropping freely from magwell when mag release button is pressed; wanna get this rectified. Anybody have any info on SoCal based Glock Armorers that could fix the problem. Model: G36. Thanks.

San Diego, aye. :thumbsup:

Sounds like an odd problem. I'd be glad to take a look at it.

If your close in to San Diego, look up a member named Crank. He's a good pistolsmith. He works mostly on 1911's and wheelguns, but a Glock is not out of his realm.

Verify that you have the newer, metal clad magazines! The older magazines had the bore side without interior metal, so that when loaded, they would expand and not drop free from the mag pocket.

News, G36's do not drop free empty. This has been documented many times over for G36 owners. I have the same problem.

If you are ever in the Corona area, Jerry at Annie's Get Your Gun is a certified Glock Armorer. He and his wife are great folks to deal with.

The American Shooting Center in San Diego has a couple of guys that are Glock certified armorers.

I believe Fort Courage Armory in Simi Valley has a Glock armorer.

they are new generation mags just bought earlier this week. I've been reading that some G36 mags drop freely w/out a hitch and that some owners are correcting the problem by switching mag-release button w/ one made for G17/22 or G19/23. Hope this can be fixed. Have contacted Glock in Smyrna, GA to no avail. Difficult to get help from anybody there so far. Hope this can be fixed cuz I refuse to use a gun that doesn't allow fast reloads.

Go back and read my original post.

Sell your G36 before you drop $$$$ into a weapon that cannot be fixed.

I have yet to meet anyone who has true drop free mags on a G36.

Well I didn't post anything earlier because I wanted to confirm with my own Glock 36 before passing wrong information.

My stock mags that came with my Glock 36 do indeed drop free loaded and empty. Serial is in the KCZ date code I believe. The gf bought it for me about 2 years ago.
