their both very nice guns. top of the line stuff, there is no a clear "better" brand of the two.

In other words, they are both much better than G&G, JG, WELL, etc etc cansofts.

Both are ABS plastic and the same material as TM/JG as far as the guns I handled last year.

I don't know if that has changed in 2009 with the cansofts.

SRC has metal cocking handle and it's on metal mag release catch and a metal hop-up.

As far as internals, both will be using ball bearings in their bushings and otherwise both are similar. I would say go for SRC.

The ICS Cansoft M4's that are available in Canada now all have plastic upper bodies. ICS currently cannot do any M4 type guns with metal upper and cansoft lower. Until that is problem is fixed, I will not considering carrying ICS M4 series guns.

I haven't used either, but I noticed in other threads people bemoaning the KWA for compatibility issues. Can any gun doctors comment here?

I just bought a KWA G36C from buyairsoft so I will post a review later. I choose KWA for better reputation in term of quality and durability. KWA G36 has been used since 2007 with good records of service. SRC Gen 3 are new and haven't been thoroughly tested on the market. First and second SRC generation had several issues and bad reliability.

It's pretty stupid to even have the upper reciever metal if the lower is plastic in the first place Not like you see people selling Metal lowers left and right and if they are selling recievers its both the upper and lower and your left with a metal upper ......and a clear lower no one realy wants

Not for ICS. Metal receivers for ICS, be that upper or lower, are rare to be sold standalone as they are not compatible with any other brand (for externals). To my knowledge, all non-cansoft ICS Armalites and MP5 of recent generations are full metal.
Having a metal upper for ICS cansofts would simply enhance their solidity (as long as it's not a cheap metal).

Yes the SRC Gen I and Gen II were debatable. Also, the most common SRC guns in the states have been Gen II, there has been very few reviews of the SRC Gen III guns.

Gen III are top of the line with the best internals precisely installed and carefully tuned up. I have opened a few of them for re-wiring etc and found that the assembly is amazingly good.

I have an ICS and out of the box it was shit,then it broke and I have spent the last two months trying to fix it.....No such luck.

In summary KWA or SRC FTW.

I own a Gen II SRC M4 and it isn't comparable to my buddys KWA M4.

I have never touched a SRC Gen III, so thats a different story.
