Trust me. You wont have problems with the plastic on the well one. I've taken my completely apart and modified it heavily.
The plastic is as robust as TM plastic, I wouldn't be afraid if some one took a 500 FPS gun and shot the body point blank.
Protip: fill the body with low-expand foam insulation when you get it, It makes a huge difference in the noise and gives it a nice weight.
At the price of a maruzen one you could get a 100% upgraded Well L96, and still have enough money left over to start another project.
