Stinger R36 Airsoft Gun Review

The Stinger R36 airsoft rifle is modeled after its “military-style” counterparts. It usually comes in desert camouflage paint job, with a FPS of 260. It also comes with a Red-Dot sights, a mock silencer, a flashlight, and a twenty round magazine.

The Stinger R36 looks super cool. The stock, silencer, red-dot sight, and flashlight are all removable. If you take it all off, you’ve got somewhat of a MP5k. As seen above, near the front of the gun there’s four weaver rails to accessorize with: lasers, fore grips, bi-pods, a upgraded scope, etc. It also comes with two studs to attach a shoulder sling, though, they are pretty weak, so just be careful.

Although the Singer R36 airsoft rifle is stylish and has a ton of ways to customize it and make it your own, it’s not very accurate. It’s in fact, horribly inaccurate. My personal one shoots extreme high and left. And some of the people I know that have this, theirs shoot all over the place. Even when loaded with .25 gram ammo, it still wants to pull up and left. I don’t recommend doing this at all, but I bent the barrel down and right, and that seems to help a little bit. So, unless to have the patience or money to upgrade the scope, and maybe get some .43 gram ammo, this might be a problem for you.

While the Stinger R36 loses in accuracy, it wins in BB’s down range. The cocking mechanism is located perfectly so that you can reach up with your weak hand cock, without taking your sights off your target and your finger off the trigger. With the 20 round clip it comes with, with a little persistence and training, you can unload the whole thing in 7 or 8 seconds. This is a great advantage in a spring powered airsoft fight. Although, you wouldn’t really have a chance against AEG’s.

The accessories are cool to. Airsofters love to see a lot of accessories and customizable parts on their airsoft guns, and the Stinger R36 provides. Everything from the stock and silencer, to the scope and flashlight, to the four weaver rails are fully customizable/de-attachable to fit your needs. The flashlight is semi-powerful and is great for nighttime wars or wars in dark indoor  places. And the stock is not adjustable, but it is removable and is made of solid plastic and very durable. The silencer doesn’t silence anything, but it does add some accuracy and it increases velocity. And finally, the scope. It helps gauge where you’re shooting, but like I said, the shot’s already extremely unpredictable.

The Stinger R36 is also very light; which could be good or bad. It’s made almost completely out plastic, which makes it one of the lightest guns I’ve ever shot. On the good hand, it won’t wear you out in a airsoft match. But on the bad hand, it feels very unnatural and cheap. It’s also prone to breaking if you drop it or play to ruff with it.

To wrap things up, the Stinger R36 is highly customizable to suit your needs, but is also very inaccurate, but there are steps you can take to help that. It can put some plastic down range in a hurry, which really helps in a airsoft battle. It also comes with many accessories and removable parts to make it your own. So, the Stinger R36 is not so great for target shooting, but can be a good tool to have in a war, I highly recommend getting some heavy BB’s and if you can afford it, a new scope. More than anything, be patient with it.
