Classic Army G36K is the way to go, it was my first gun.

You're going to find the ARES proprietary gearbox to cause you a lot of headaches, and you'll be waiting on parts to come in the mail, instead of having fun with your gun. The nice thing with a TM-compatible gearbox is that fixing and upgrading isn't a headache to get new parts in, and parts are often on-hand at your local airsoft store.

Proprietary internals are parts that only work with one specific gun/gearbox, i.e. the ARES G36 gearbox will only accept gears and other parts specifically made for the ARES G36.

There's some really awesome deals on CA G36Ks in the classifieds right now (I don't know why people aren't going for them...), If you get AV'd you shouldn't have a problem finding one.

G36 mags are a problem for finding suitable pouches, the other option is to get a STANAG Magwell conversion kit to run M4 magazines off of your future G36.

I heard that mag conversion are not that good. Because there are some wobbles or whatever.

Well yeah, it doesn't have the ergonomics of a Magpul gun

It's just "different".

It can be very difficult to find a magwell/magazine combination that feeds correctly.

My first gun was a two year old CA G36E, And I loved it. Bone stock, it shot straight and far, and with a 9.6, it was a laser beam. It wasn't until I'd had it as my only weapon for two years that it finally showed any wear. I didn't know how to clean it back then, so it went for two years of heavy gaming by me, with no maintenance whatsoever. It's been dropped, stepped on, fallen on, and even now, it still works great. My selector is a little finicky, but that's it. I can highly recommend this to you, I personally love it, and even though I've got other weapons now, It's still my 'Old Reliable' and it's there when I need it most.

+1 on the CA g36, i have a g36c by CA and its very reliable. Just needs a spring swap to bring it into field limits, mine shoots around 220 feet and at 365 fps or so, very accurate

love the gun, only downside is finding pouches for the mags really

CA guns are awesome. I have a M15A4 and it has yet to let me down. Works great with KA mags, I have never had a misfeed.
