like the KWA / ARES G36C or A&K SR25K.
G36 is an excellent newbie gun, but not the ARES version. ARES uses proprietary parts that are a bitch to get. The KWA one is excellent, but only the full-black one. The body on the clear one is very weak and I'm not convinced it will hold up for long terms use.
IMHO the best G36 to pick up is the Classic Army version. Body is excellent and internals are fine. The G36 is easy to disassemble and the Version 3 mechbox is robust and fairly easy to work on.
