I plan on buying CAW M24. Does anyone know where I can buy this rifle, and where I can find upgrades for it? I checked everywhere online and still could not find a review or much information about this gun so if I'm making a wrong decision by choosing this over a CA M24 please say so. (And does anyone know if the CAW Mags are metal?)

hello! in replying to your question ill start with a couple of facts about each gun
the CAW costs 340$ and can be found IN STOCK at e hobby aisa including the mags [google it]
EXTERNALS starting with the barrel, it is NOT FLUTED but is all metal as well as the bolt and trigger assembly. the stock is made of a rough texturized very durable polymer or plastic. the stock is all metal and ajustable just like the CA version.
INTERNALS the guns internals are supposed to be durable and reliable. the barrel is accurate but a tight bore can be installed if further accuracy is needed fps is low for a rifle 320-350 but a stronger spring will fix this. the hop up is good and trigger response is fast. the magazine is a side loading magazine (refer to pictures on the site or check out AIRSOFT GI'S review of the tokyo marui mk96 that uses a similar loading system to have this explained.) the mag is plastic BUT due to the loading system on the rifle(again refer to the asgi review) the mag is loaded into the correct position in front of the trigger guard and is actually inserted through the metal trap door on the bottom of the rifle so you dont have to worry about the fact thats its plastic. the mag holds 27 bbs
The CA m24 costs around 28 310 depending on the site and can be found on several including classic army.com
EXTERNALS the barrel bolt trigger and hop up assemblies are all metal the stocks of the two guns are almost the same if not the same matirial (NOTE) If the guns bolt seems loose it is made to be that way. the magazine holds around 30 bbs and is similar to the maruzen type 96 mags. it is spring ejected
INTERNALS ive heard that this gun has "internal problems" but this could just be the owners expiriance through not maintaining the gun of not replacing the guns parts when they get worn down. seeing as this is a classic army gun i just dont see this gun breaking down like a chinese clone gun. this gun (IMO) should have some upgrades put into it. definatly a stronger spring seeing as this guns fps is in the neighbourhood of the CAW model
both guns come with sling bipod and scope mounts but dont come with and slings bipods of scopes
i think the CAW has a VERY slight edge over the classic army due to the build quality being a bit better and the mag position both guns anre good sniper platforms but both need upgrades to really shine

Paranox is just trying to help. I understand people make mistakes but capitalizing your letter "I" is not hard. Not to mention, you do not end all of your sentences with periods even after you were told to do so. Just fix up those little things and no one will complain.
