I only have exoerience with one (1) LM4 and she suffered hopup problems during the warranty period. KWA had her back in my hands in 10 days or so and there have been no issues since then. That was a year agoi.
I'd leave the internals to KWA, certainly during the 6-week warranty period. After that you'll need most of your AR15 tools, a heat gun, and some of the instruction here. As noted, since KWA warranty service mine has needed no attention at all.

I was able to get by with only one magazine and the KWA speedloader during the games I played, but it would have been much less stressful to have had a few more magazines. Speaking of which... KWA - when will STANAG LM4 magazines be available? I've been watching for months on ASGI, and they have been out of stock for a while...

The LM4 was pretty skirmishable out of the box for me. Until I ripped the bucking because I had too much silicone in my propane.
Use green gas or use propane dry (Propane => More Cleaning just to let you know).
If you are going to purchase a LM4, I highly recommend an AR wrench and a valve tool.
Having an AR wrench will help you remove the delta ring which is necessary in order to access the hop-up unit.

Lots of parts get nicknames like calling the lower receiver extension the "buffer tube" but the "Delta ring" is the really the handguard slip ring and takes no tools to push back. The barrel nut is the spiny critter revealed under the handguards and you need the special wrench (and a heat gun) to remove. And lots of care. Unlike the monolythic, forged and machined M16 upper receiver the LM4 receiver is several parts screwed together and will come apart if twisted too hard.

So here's the basics:
Heat-gun (you can use a hairdryer that has heat, it will just take much longer)
EVO II hop-up set
Valve tool (with heads for both the main valve as well as the fill valve)
Magazines (though you can get by with one, it's much more fun and easier to have more)
