I would (for obvious reasons) say not to the WA and WE parts. I would guess that if a part is compatible with a Magpul PTS part, it might work with the KWA GBBR.

Kind of defeats the purpose of paying extra for the Magpul version if you start swapping parts...

The gun isn't released yet in the US.  Therefore it is very difficult for any of us to comment with other than speculation.

For the record, normal AEG rails are largely compatible with WE M4 GBBRs. The only issue it the depth of the threading.

Just curious- will the buffer tube be mil-spec or commercial sized? If I remember correctly, KWA m4 aegs use a mil-spec buffer tube, so i expect this to be no different. Just asking because I need to know when purchasing a new stock.

Being a G&P WOC Owner and I built mine from scratch, I could shed some light on this topic...
G&P uses proprietary threads on their bodies so you have to buy a separate barrel nut if you want to use a certain rail on your gun (unless you have your body re-threaded to regular AEG threads. So if you wanted to buy a Daniel Defense Rail through Madbull then you would have to buy the G&P threaded barrel nut and swap out the one that comes with the rail. Now if KWA does regular AEG threads then it will accept any standard threaded AEG rail on the market. If they don't and go the proprietary route, more than likely some company will go ahead and produce aftermarket threaded barrel nuts for the different types of popular rails...
