Polycarb is better than aluminum for your stuff.

btw, You said you know everything already..

I really recommend you to research as much as you can about AEGs, internals, operation etc. There is tonnes of material on this forums and elsewhere on the interwebs. Watch mechbox disassembly videos, read about parts.. Will definitely save you lot of time asking simple questions here and then waiting for somebody to reply.
