The first is a JG G36, 5 mid cap mags, two batterys, sling, and case. 550$

The second Is a TM G36 with spare Hi Cap and battery, 500$

The third Is a Classic Army G36, with 9.6 volt batt one point sling,Stock internals except for metal bushings and a tightbore barrel.
One CA hicap mag and one TM midcap mag
Private parts G36/M4 magwell conversion included. 310 FPS 550$

Any and all help would be apprectiated!

I don't know much about G36 series but I would sway towards the TM for these reasons:
1. Reliable internals
2. Normally people buy a CA for the metal body, but in the case of the G36 it is not a metal body like it's real steel counter part, and CA's internals can be questionable at times.

I would choose the Toyko Marui G36. The Jing-Jong is a replica of the TM G36, so your basicually getting a lesser quality TM G36. Also make sure to buy a charger! Battery is no good without a good charger!

Link to a charger:
ICS M4A1 Carbine

2 m4 hi-caps, 5 m4 mid caps

I would say go to Classic Army G36 since it already pre-upgrade plus the quality of Classic Army and TM is not big different also you got the private part mag well which you can use M4 magazines, also the tight bore which give more accuracy. go CA G36, you won't be wrong.

For a G36, I'd completely recommend the TM

I've heard other folks say the externals on the CA G36 are the best of the bunch.

TM or CA...I'd lean towards the CA.

BUT...I'd go based on the seller. Not just the trader rating, but based on how good/complete/quick/understandable their comms were. How forth coming they are with a contact number and real information. I'd also look at their other posts...if they guy writes like a jerk, they're probably a jerk.

Local is always if you get a chance to see/handle it first...there'll be less chance of any issues buying it.

If it's been worked over...ask who did it and contact them.

Best of luck,

Classic Army G36 all the way.
CA makes one of the best airsoft G36 on the market today.
CA G36 line have glass fiber body, unlike TM and JG ABS construction.

TM internals will run you longer as per the CA externals are nice.. but I had a TM G36 and pushed it to 380fps for a couple years and it ran flawless. TM imho from experience is great. CA has crappy pistons
No Comment.

CA all the way. You start with a much stronger glass fibre body, plus a reinforced mechbox and hardened gears. CA internals are a lot better than some people give them credit for. Current generation CAPart are good quality. And even if you had to replace the "problematic" parts, they're all cheap and readily available.

go for the classic army g36 ive handled both the TM and the CA and i much prefer my CA. externals are amazing and the only things to break on it so have been after market parts lol. and ive been running it at 398 fps for a year.

I been playing with my TM G36C since i started airsoft.
love it
CA = Crappy army IMO
JG = you can buy a new one for 300-350 $ the only thing extra you get with it are the mags.

but if i was you i would stick with the TM

can't go wrong with a TM

As far as playabilty I would say CA although TM is nice once you Have played for awhile you realize that TM although really good is missing a few things like out of the boxpower its not there fault the guns can handle it. Just dosnt have the power of CA. The TM will last longer without breaking MAYBE! Its a chance you take with all airsoft guns.

If these 2 a both bnib or lnib then the real choice is what are you looking for a reliable name TM or the power? If one is newer than the other I say no questions unless you want to open them up and fix em go with the one with less rounds through it.

Course my options are mute if your planning on making upgrades soon.

Also the CA is worth it with having the converter so you can borrow mags on the field if needed. EX mid fight you run out of ammo LOL.
You realy think so? I totaly agree! with what I'm not sure yet but I'll bet that I'll find out.

I personally own the CA G36. I'm extremely happy with it, and as mentioned it's not full Metal but Fiberglass and Metal pieces.

My Experiences with my gun only:

I've done some additions to mine, and nice thing is that most pieces whether it comes from a G36C, G36K will fit with no or minor modifications. Only gripe I have is the G36 does not come with any rails (nor does it's real counterpart) and the only addition is a Night Scope that'll run you into the 000's and I don't even know if there is a mock version.

It Chronies about 280fps, stock so internal upgrades will likely be needed.

Last point is battery on my CA G36. I had to go w/ a 8.4v 4500mAh battery to keep it going all day. Either that or you need a none custom made battery. all custom made batteries either 8.4 or 9.6 would not fire this gun over more then 5 times. Of course getting the larger battery pack required a change to the ButtStock to accomoade the sub C batteries.

My two cents.
Armed with: Classic Army G36, TM 5.1 Hi-Capa
-- Eo 557 RDS -- Eo 4x Magnifyer -- G&P G36 V-Stock -- 8.4v 4500mAh -- G36 Top Mount Rail --

well I have owned a tm and it worked flawlessly i was able to upgrade byond the limits in a test and it shot 520 lol but i completely upgraded the mechbox and needed a min of a 9.6v

the one drawback to all g36 is the battery space
