Hey guys most of you know me and my sr7 by now. I have been on KWA for over a year and it's time for a choice that I'm leaving to my friends, family, and you guys. I have officially decided that I need to do something more with airsoft.  Basically guys it's down to this. I want to buy a Gbbr! crazy right? well i'm a hardcore gas gun lover and it's time for my AEGS to go bye bye. But that is where I need help. I need to know if I should keep my sr-7 keep upgrading it and keep being a hardcore AEG airsoft player. or if I should do gbbr and get into all the maintenance and love. Now the only downfall to all of this which I am going to get Heck from the KWA community is... I want to buy a WOC challenge kit :'(( im sorry guys... I love building things and it's in my price range. so help me out here...

What exactly do you need help with?
Deciding to stay with your SR7 or buy a WOC?
Um, keep the SR7 and buy a WOC?

I would not abandon a reliable and accurate AEG.  This time of year my gas guns perform poorly outdoors when they perform at all.  My lil' KM4-CQB is still hitting 7" silhouettes at 80+ feet consistently in the same sub-freezing temperatures.  Doesn't have the cachet of the LM4 of course.

I built my first computer many (many!) years ago.  A satisfactory learning experience and the results matched those of a factory unit -- after some trials.  My bucket list includes building a replica Lotus 7 sports car from a kit.  I suspect a "challenge kit" will provide the same satisfaction.  Lets face it, unless we're into carpentry there's little we can build with our hands these days.  Heck, the engines in our cars have giant covers over them and PCs with separate function cards are getting rarer.

I would definitely keep your SR7.  If something goes wrong with your GBBR or you are just messing with it like boobiem4h does you won't have to worry about getting it back together in time for a game.  AEGs are very reliable and also, once you get it just the way you like it you may not be able to do it again.  For example my SR10.  I'm not quite sure what I did to it, because the fact is I did nothing besides change the spring (I never even took my hop-up fully apart yet), but I can hit a bucket 250ft away consistently.

And the WOC challenge kit is a great idea even though it's not KWA.  Like Chuck said there is less and less that you can actually build now-a-days.  Have fun with it.

I've always wanted to buy a WOC kit, but was always concerned it would get seized...

I'd recommend getting a WOC. Like everyone's already said, it's great fun to build, and it's a learning experience in the process. Go for it. If you want an out-of-the-box outstanding GBBR, with no need to worry about buying upgrade parts, then buy the LM4.

I'd also recommend that you stick with your SR7 as well.

I'd buy an LM4, wait till the 45 day warranty is up...and take it apart. Then reassemble it...but that's just me.  And keep the AEG.  The SR7 is a good one.

If you sell your SR7, at some point you will regret it.
Find a financial way to have both, even if that means a delayed purchased of a GBB for another year.
Good things come to those who wait.

thanks guys so much. I've decided i'm keeping my sr-7 because I've found a love for it! i'm going to put in an angel custom barrel to see if I can get my accuracy up, and an ascu to get my trigger response up. I have a moe stock, miad grip kit all dark earth, and im getting a afg, and a mock [barrel extension] for it. I'm also getting some magpul E mags. I've decided to keep my sr-7 because of how I've realized I've had it for close to 1 and 1/2 years and no problems. I'm ordering all that and the rest of my gear which has taken close to 5 years to get this week. I think i'm going to order a WOC after I get enough money to. Maybe for a birthday gift for myself in a couple months.

Some words of warning, if you ever do get a GBBR, your AEG will never be used again.

Except for every winter time.

hey guys since ive posted this so much has happened. I'm actually buying a we-m1a or m14. I've heard great reviews. I am persuing my dream of being a sniper again. (I was for years and gave it up, but im back) Now don't get me wrong I will never give up KWA. my ultimate weapons manufacturer. But I do have to say I gave away my SR-7 :'(((((( I gave it to a friend who always wanted a KWA, and he's hooked so I've earned KWA another new customer.

DO NOT BUY A WE. WEs are terrible in everyway. There pistols last a month and fall apart. There GBBR also have issues. Get a WA/G&P, GHK for AK. KJW also makes good gas M4s. Just not a WE. The best WE is their HK416 so far.

Just letting you know that WE M14's are incredibly gas inefficient.

How about buying a KWA LM4? ... as it is the best out of box GBBR there is on the market. LOL
