WE is a great platform because of the availability of parts IN country. You won't have to spend much time or money to get your hands on quality parts.

WA has very few parts, you will end up having to order from outside the country. Shipping costs can get quite high, of the $1000 I just spent on parts, I think I spent around $100-120 in just shipping. Duties on top of that will only add more.
Thank you dark shift. That's the kind of answer I was looking for. So if I buy a WE (which is the most likely scenario) I should upgrade all those parts you mentioned? I guess my question is how do I know what parts to upgrade? How am I supposed to determine which parts are crap and which are good? That is what I'm trying to understand in this thread.

Don't always assume a higher price is a better gun. Airsoft prices in Canada have been coming down dramatically over the last couple of years, for instance $600 dollars is near twice what should pay for a KWA MP7 right now. Some retailers prices still reflect those of two years ago. It's not uncommon to find the exact same gun listed at different two retailers hundreds of dollars apart. Be sure to shop around.

Best for you to decide what model of gun you want first, AK G36,M4 etc, that may severally narrow your options.

I am going to recommend you check out KJW M4 as a GBBR choice, it's ready to go ootb and has much better reliability than a WE model (stock anyway), and WA is far too overpriced imo. I have owned my KJ for 2 years now and love it.

In terms of what to replace, you could honestly replace everything in a WE with all RA-TECH parts right away, but like Coach said, I would run it first and then replace parts as they go, unless you're building a WE from scratch.
