The Glock 36 comes with a 5.5lbs trigger pull and a trigger travel of 0.49 inches with a satisfying, audible reset. It has a fixed white-dot front sight and rear white-u alignment posts. Reviewers rave about the easy of control and the surprising felt recoil of the G36—which in comparison to other .45’s is not as “snappy” as many expected.
Reviewers found the Glock 36 to be comfortable for both left-handed or right-handed shooting—as switching between handedness didn’t affect shot groupings with any noticeable differences. However, the way the pistol felt in the hand was different—that is that the grip itself felt different. Many of them preferred right-handed shooting.

This makes the Glock 36 perfect for concealed carry—even pocket carry.
