Tokyo Marui have also been found to use the same materials, some traces of lead in their products. I think I read this on Arnies. It's simple, just don't lick or eat your AEG and you'll be fine.

Regardless, while I think Dboys products definitely have issues, they are the most inexpensive to get and might be suitable for people on a budget.

If you can afford better, then get something better.

At least it's being used for something.

Amos, your experience stems from 2 years playing Airsoft, and advise from you should be taken with that in mind. Yes, I know how long, I was working at XT when you started in the sport.

D-BOYS is not bad. And they are not the best. Each manufacturer has it's lemons, and for the last year or two Classic Army products were pulled from many retailer's shelves due to shoddy design and craftsmanship. Airsoft GI is one such example. They have their act together now (apparently), and are producing good quality stuff.

I have seen, touched, breathed, licked, and spat on more types of guns and manufacturers than I'd ever thought possible, and it really all comes down to luck, and care taken when building a gun.

DBOYS has been good, CA better, G&G good still, same with G&P. Nothing has beaten the reliability and proven track record of Tokyo Marui. Systema products are generally awesome, with some exceptions to shitty aftermarket AEG parts here and there, and King Arms has always been good to me.

Someone has a bad experience with a product once, and they'll forever label it as shit. Hear of a few other bad stories? Must be that they're all bad. Not the case.


Point is, keep an open mind when it comes to Airsoft. Try it out, and if you don't like it - sell it, trade it, use it as firewood. Any problem can be fixed if something breaks, and almost all guns will have something break on them eventually.

I have a DBoys C8 body I bought last winter. No real fitment issues with it at all except I had to sand the mag well a bit. All high cap mags I tried in it worked (TM, CA, DBoys), and plastic G&P midcap mags worked well too, but all metal low and mid caps were too tight. However, once I got that taken care of, everything worked great without any issues. The finish is a bit rougher than that of the real steel, but I think it looks damn close in terms of finish. That being said, if I could have gotten a hold of a Guarder C8 body, I would have paid the extra for that over the JG just for the better quality.

That being said, there are a lot of reports of problematic older DBoys receivers. But from what I've heard of the newer generations models, they fit up well without any mods required.

I'm not counting the niche market receivers. I'm talking about how things come from the factory.

Of course a dedicated after market metal-body manufacturer wins over the gun manufacturer... How else are they gonna get you to purchase their product?

You could always shell out the money for a magpul body.

MAGPUL PTS (Airsoft division of the real MAGPUL company) makes EXCELLENT stuff... I hope they start producing AEGs.

So do I. I'm very happy with my metal body. Fits like a glove and holds up to abrasion, moisture, shock, me getting mad and throwing it at Gunk...
