Learning how to upgrade AEG internals?

I would like to learn how to upgrade/repair/clean an aeg gearbox. Can anyone point me in the right direction to start learning how to do this? For me, personally, the best way to learn is to do it hands on. So should I buy a gun like this:
and just study the internals and such? Maybe even try upgrading it once I get the hang of things?
Thanks in advance,

My advice would be to get a cheap clone like a JG. Because of the low cost, there is low risk in case you screw something up, they are completely on-spec so you can replace parts easily, unlike your KWA, and they have pretty good parts stock to begin with. The internet is your friend. is a great place, but rather advanced. Sites like airsoftretreat would also be a great place to go. Youtube has many disassembly and reassembly videos, but many of them beyond basic taking things apart and putting stuff together don't know what they're talking about from what I've seen, so take it with a grain of salt. They are good at showing how to put the gearbox back together though. Vindi's DMR guide has many assembly and tuning tips, even though it is mostly DMR oriented, so that's good to check out too.
