Hello and thanks for any advice anyone can offer. I am totaly new to airsoft and received my first airsoft gun today....a new KWA G36C for Christmas. I got the Lip 11.1V battery. I was so excited to shoot and play with it. I charged the battery and loaded it up. I was very disappointed as the gun miss fires on semi by sometimes shooting 2-4 times with each trigger pull and on full auto it is pathetic. It shoots fast but only about 20 or 30 feet.  The shop where it was purchased will be closed tomorrow and we are supposed to play. Can anyone offer any suggestions? On semi I can fudge with it and it will do OK for a while. But on full auto it is about useless.  I have read several of the other threads but just got confused. Thanks for any help you may have.   Merry Christmas! I am shooting. 25g high quality bb's by the way!

Hey Blambert. Have the same gun and HAD.. the same problem. Come to find out the 11.1v Lipo had too high of a c rating. Yours is probably 20c or higher. If you look at the manual it recommends no higher than a 15c discharge. Honestly your best fix is to get a 9.6v 1600 mAh mini butterfly type. Its shoots perfectly with my gun. Shoots plenty fast and best of all it shoots without a hitch!! I removed the small tamiya connector and replaced it with deans connectors.. easy even better performance. Lipo batteries are just at least to me too much work. Plus it will put less strain on your gearbox, less repairs.

Hope this helps, have a great Christmas

Thanks so much! Not sure how to find the "C" rating. The battery that the shop recommended and sold me was a "Tenergy Li-Po 1600MAH". Is the "C" rating on listed on the battery itself? My son has an extra battery. It is a Tenergy 9.6V, 1600 MAH. Would this work until the shop opens back on Tuesday?  Thanks again for your help and I hope you had a great Christmas day!

Definitely sounds like an overspin issue. As previous poster recommends, try a lower voltage battery. And later on you may consider upgrading to a MOSFET with active braking to prevent overspin issue.  Or a stronger spring.

Thanks to everyone. Leadmunitions......it was a 20C battery. Going back to the store Tuesday.  I tried the 9.6 V battery and the gun performed flawlessly.  Thanks again for all the help! Wish me luck tomorrow in my first airsoft backyard battle.

Just thought I would update everyone on my issue. I went back to the store where I purchased the G36c where I told the tech what I had learned from this forum. He talked me into staying with the LiPo only a 15c instead of the 20C. The gun performs great. I am really enjoying the gun and I think it's a great all around gun. Thanks to all the who offered up info. I hope everyone has a great new year!

That's good to hear. But as a heads up, you may encounter the same problem again with the LiPo being fully charged. From experience the the peak voltage the stock gun can handle before you encounter the over spin is around 10.5 volts.
