Looking for L96 Upgrade bases

I was looking into getting a new upgrade project and I was looking at an l96, I was wondering what the best upgrade base was and what I should focus on with that given base. Thanks a lot!

Get a Maruzen based L96. Not the Tokyo Marui version which normally has the letter "AWS" with it. So you want the one where the magazine is hidden and does not stick out from the stock. WELL sell both versions. So get the one with the hidden mag. This has a much larger cylinder volume which is needed for a decent sniper rifle.
Depending on you budget, you can upgrade it a few ways.
The cylinder is utter crap and normally falls apart if you put in anything above an M150 in it. So replace this with AA. The black plastic trigger box will also break pretty fast so if you can, reinforce the outside of it with 2 part epoxy. It may help but if it does brake, you will have to replace it. Once again AA.
The hopup chamber is also not that great, so get the AA one. These are the best on the market.
The spring guide, although it is plastic, has a metal rod running through the middle and so therefore it does not need replacing and can handle very big springs normally. The piston at times is OK but that would also be best to replace with an AA one. You may need to drill out the internal diameter of the AA piston to fit anything above a M170. But from what I recall, the M170 will work well in it.

Get the WELL MB01 or MB08, they are practically the same, except the MB08 has a folding stock. Internally, the are the same and they have plenty of upgrade parts.
