D-Boy

Don't know much about the company or their guns. Any good? Tried doing a little searching, didn't find much. A thread on Arnies said they're either really good or you'll get a lemon. I think I recall another thread on here saying that if we could get them in Canada they wouldn't be so bad. But it's more of a States thing.

ASC. What say you?

i would stay away from them IMHO. metal bodies are said to contain lead, and i wasn't all that impressed with some of their products. other might say differnetly, but even their CNC stuff i wouldn't trust and not just due to metal composition/quality, but also because we do not know the quality of the blueprints that were put into the CNC machine. and based on other China "CNC" stuff, it is just not up to par with everything made in japan. just my thoughts though. others will probably say otherwise.

i have a v3 gearbox and some rail covers made by d-boys that seem to be good
but ive heard that their aftermarket products suck yet someone said their aegs are great. some do come full metal or full metal and wood

down here they cost more than jg's do so they have to be at least a little bit above jg's which i think most people regard as the best china clone manufacturer

Right on. Found a review of the SPR I was looking at. Only down side it really mentioned was a kind of crappy rear stock, no fuse (Which doesn't bother me) and the screws can strip easily (Not a problem because I don't fuck with my guns).

Anyone else had any experiences with these please feel free to gimme the heads up.

I built a custom CQBR from mostly Dboys parts, it turned out quite amazing.

also handled a Dboys M4, it performed quite similarly to just about every other brand M4s

I've disassembled and reassembled Dboys guns over and over, screws stripping is a myth. If you use the wrong sized screw driver head and force it then you'll strip it. If you take your time to choose the right sized head and take your time with threading your screws won't degrade if you take it apart multiple times. And another thing shimming and bushings on my MK12 Mod 0 is still stock and I'm running an M120S thats pulling 390FPS.

The metal body, I'd have to say it beats the metal body I got made by CA since the CA one uses two crappy pins whereas Dboys uses a wide lip at the end.

Buddy of mine bought a dBoys M4, told me his STAR mags wouldn't fit into the thing. He had to sand the mags down.

Dboys receivers are well known for crappy fitments. I had one, never used it, just sold it, and it felt somewhat decent. Like all other china clones the quality can be sketchy.
I've had a few JG's and they have been quite good to me but IMO they don't last as long as other quality models.

Wicked. It's probably going to be my backup outdoors guns or a loaner for a friend. I've suddenly got an urge to own an armalite after being an HK whore for the better part of 8 years.

So far it sounds like the good far outweigh the bad on these series of rifles.

Helps a little. The unit I was looking for purchase was fully made, however it's good to know it's monkey metal. No running over it with the truck.

I use the Spr m-16 from d-boys and couldnt be happier
the tales of easy to strip screws is correct and the stock does have a fragile feel, but it has operated flawlessly since I got it and still shoots 400 fps w/.20's

They're known for terrible tolerances and EXTREMELY sketchy build materials.

Sure you can save maybe 150-200 bucks by buying a China clone.. but once your shitty body breaks, you'll have to shell out ATLEAST another 100 bucks (If you want another POS Dboy's body)

Dboys, JG, Cyma all that doesn't hold a candle to the New Classic Army and G&P Stuff.
