I at some point in my life would like to own a Daytona gun. I don't know why, but it's just something I want to own. To make it feel "special" I would like to make this a over time sort of project. My problem that I seem to be having is since the only site I know of that sells the Daytona kit mentions that it only will accept WA or G&P GBB bodies. So it seems no major retailers carry any and out of the whole internet their is only 1 site that's selling G&P GBB's. Does anyone know where I could find my self a WA or G&P GBB M4? Other than the mentioned site as well because it's good to explore options. Thanks for any information you can give.
Ehobbyaisa.com, airsoftglobal.com, and redwolfairsoft.com have a few in stock. All three are over seas. Not sure if the ATF is still jumping on these when they hit customs. Are you willing to go used? The Magna system is pretty good at destroying itself, and along with it the dreams of many young owners who can't afford fix them. I've seen used ones for around $150 with blown up bolt carriers or no mags.

I'm willing to go used so long as I can still get a Daytona kit into it. If your suggesting what I think you, scouring craigslist and ebay, then I'm willing to do that unless of course you had something else in mind.
Keep an eye out on any airsoft forum that has seller reviews. Make sure you are buying from a reputable person and you should be fine. Since the DG kit replaces all the internals you shouldn't have much trouble finding a good donor. I remember someone selling a G&P WOC kit on here that was bumped for quite a while. Maybe find the post and PM him and see if he still has it.
I wouldn't buy new since you are just going to gut it. The DG kit will end up costing $600-700 bucks with the air rig and installation modifications. What's another $100-200 to replace any damaged externals that come on a used rifle?

Okay I might as well ask and try to get all the information I can. Is their certain types of Hop ups and bucking's I should use/can only use with G&P and WA guns? I believe the answer is theirs certain hop up units I need to use, but I am unsure. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
Are you referring to them as a GBBR or as a Daytona Gun? As a GBBR they use a proprietary design for the WA Magna system. The Daytona Gun kit includes it's own proprietary hop up chamber and bucking but it uses regular AEG barrels.
