The G36 is a 5.56x45mm NATO assault rifle designed in the early 1990s by Heckler & Koch (H&K) in Germany for the German Military as a replacement for the 7.62mm NATO G3 rifle. It was accepted into service with the Bundeswehr in 1997, replacing the G3. The G36 is gas-operated and feeds from a 30-round detachable box magazine or 100-round C-Mag drum magazine. Its combination of polymer build and highly ergonomic design yet Spartan simplistic robustness to its style have made it a popular choice with move makers when looking for something very contemporary military to equip mercenaries or cutting edge soldiers.
The WE G39E is a replica of the G36E rifle length version of the G36 series with the full length barrel and an integrated bipod. The G39 feeds from a 30 round magazine but its large gas reservoir means it can easily empty a whole magazine rapidly with virtually no cool down issues. Clocking in pretty dead consistent at 380 fps, it is powerful enough for outdoor use at typical skirmish ranges.
When the magazine is empty, the bolt does lock to the rear with the bolt release present just in front of the trigger, inside of the trigger guard up against the body just like the real steel. The bolt charge handle flips either way, the bolt and magazine release are accessible equally from both sides and the fire selector is present on both sides making this a very ambidextrous weapon.
With the stock folded out the weapon is a nice controllable length for proper shouldered operation without being too long in confined spaces. When moving to tighter quarters, the stock folds to the right side reducing the overall length allowing its stockless form to handle with no shouldered control but more agility.
Although not as fast as insane machine pistols, the cycle rate is still pretty keen to empty that magazine sharpish especially considering the 30 round real-steel-true capacity so trigger discipline and shot place is that much more important with wielding this highly realistic weapon.
With the real weapon coming in barely one hundred grams heavier then the WE, matching the capacity and replicating all the functions to the point of tactile realism we dare say this weapon is good enough for a professional to train basic handling on without requiring the real thing until live ammunition shooting is required.
