After looking on internet on many reviews and web sites, I choosed the KWA over the SRC because of the reputation of both company have and some features. But the SRC gen III is supposed to be a good choice also.
The features I was looking for:
Gearbox ver. 3 pre-upgraded
Ability to take M4 mags (with an adapter)
Good stock accuracy and range
Replacement parts easily available
stock fps in 380-395 range
at this time, Only the KWA G36C met my requirements.
Hope this will help you
Thanks for your detailed comment. Out of curiosity, what on that list does SRC fail to achieve?
Unfortunately KWA does not make the G36K, because that is the one I have my eye set on.. but nevertheless, I've read many places they are about the same and its only a matter of personal choice. (KWA does have an oversized front to accomodate larger battery than SRC)..
