View Full Version : Glock 36 Pearce Plus One Test

I guess this is mainly for G36 or potential G36 owners.

I had previously tried the Pearce plus one (7+1) mag extender, but I had some problems with the last round not feeding using the original G36 mag spring.

Today I tried again using a Wolff 10% extra power mag spring. Put 140 rounds down range with zero problems. 100 230g FMJ and 40 rounds of 185g HP's.

If you want 8 rounds in your G36 it appears the Pearce plus one works well as long as you use the Wolf extra power spring. This is basically the same experience others have reported, but I had to learn for myself.:)

I used the Pierce +1 on one of my G36 mags with no problems. I fully expected to have to replace the spring, but so far it is OK.

The G36 is a great gun and for me, is the only ultra compat .45 acp I will trust. Others have great luck with 1911 style compact .45's, but I must have a cloud over my head.

Good luck and it is great hearing about another G36 owner.

Trooper Joe, thanks for the response.

The more I have my G36 the more I am impressed. Another good point on the G36 is that it has a 3.8" barrel, and since it is poly rifling it gets better velocity than normal rifling. So, I figure my G36 is about equal to a 1911 4" barrel.

Anyway, it's good you did not have to replace the spring, but many have had an issue with the plus one using the factory spring. If you have any problems in the future just order an extra power spring from Wolff.
