Anybody have experience with the ARES G36 line?

So over two months ago back in April I placed an order at my local store for an ARES G36K. I was told 2 months but now apparently it'll take longer and I should expect arrival in July. I know it's quite late but I was wondering if anybody had some experience with any of the G36s made by Ares. Anything to note, stay away from, etc?.... I'm trying to read up on it as much as I can to sort of tide myself over until it arrives. Dunno why since I've already placed the order but still.

I have one. it's a piece of shit. it lies to me about working. It feeds in my basement when I chrono it. I bring it to the field, it jams up and refuses to shoot. I hate it. Every time I've needed it as a loaner, it's failed, so it sits on my table, all it does is test springs so I can label the box of used springs that people leave me when they have guns upgraded.

It would be my 5th g36. I have had 3 CAs, I still have 2 which are all sort of not CA anymore except in skeletal and skin remains. The other was returned to stock and sold. I have a jg sl9 in the basement that has been more reliable than the ares at half the price.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.

I have an Ares G36C and it's performed well for me so far. I'm new to airsoft so I've only been using it for about 3 months but it has not failed me so far and shoots reliably for a stock gun. I think a few compression upgrades would make it more consistent. I have not disabled the electronic blowback although many people recommend it. So yeah my experience is way different than lurkingknight's.

I am using CYMA midcap magazines. I had to slightly file the locking tabs to get them to fit (less than 1mm removal) but they feed fine.

My one complaint is that I can't get the rear peep sight low enough to zero properly. Flipping to the rear open sight is fine. Airsoft iron sights are never great to begin with though. So I use a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot, cowitnessed with my open irons and it works very well.

I own a Ares g36 that has almost everything replaced/upgraded. It belonged to a friend of mine who always had bad luck with it, after he dumped hundreds into the gun it seems to finally shoot nice. Right now I am running it with a warfet and is pretty fun with the burst modes. But the original owner had nothing but problems with the gun when it was stock.
