Unless you know the history of the gun or how to troubleshoot issues, I'd go new. It's hard enough dealing with a new gun that might breakdown, but dealing with a used gun where you don't know when parts were added, why, and what parts, there can be trouble there.
imo TM aegs are still overpriced for what you need to do if you're going to play outdoors. If we lived in japan and you could have it for 200 bucks, have at it, but for what they go for here, I can't justify it, not when 90% of the market is tm compatible, cheaper and come better prepared to play outside of a 1J field limit.
Honestly the only other true g36 worth considering is the classic army. It's about 95% tm compatible, the only difference being a few measurements being a tiny bit off.
SRC and ares are the others.. would not touch src.. ares can be problematic.. both have their share of non TM parts. But between those 2 I would take the ares.
WE also makes an AEG version using their GBBR body, I have yet to see one on the field but their body is pretty nice.. seems to be the same as the ARES but with a standard tm v3 gearbox. I haven't even seen a canadian vendor stock the WE aeg g36.
All your alternatives are much more expensive than the JG options though.
I have a CA g36, most of the mags I've tried in it work fine, ares can be picky on mags. SRC seem to be not so picky but their hopup is not tm spec and can't be made tm spec.
