Nothing else should be considered.
1. lots available both resale and new
2. Easy to re-sell when you move on
3. Lots of Gear options
4. mags readily available , and inexpensive.
5. lots of people very comfortable working on them if you want upgrades.. or need repairs
I'd still add a G36 in there.. for the V3 mechbox if nothing else.
