There's no definitive answer for this, it depends too much on your situation.
Why are you upgrading/what have you found unsatisfactory about your gun?
What characteristics do you want to improve in your gun/what parts are you going to need?
What is the cost of the parts you want at a walk-in store vs ordering (incl. shipping)?
When do you need the parts?
Generally, ordering parts from out of country is cheaper on face, but when you factor in shipping and the time that takes, you may be better off getting them from a walk-in store.
