Dboy gearbox, need opinions / reviews
 
Hey guys, i pickup up this fixer aeg for real cheap. A classic army m16 (near mint exterior btw), and in the spirit of keeping the gun cost effective, i am planning to replace shot mechbox for a dboy one. They say to shoot around 390 fps.

Any opinions are welcome

Dboys is crap.

MartyK2500 August 17th, 2011 21:51

Yeah they are cheaper in cost so quality is supposed to be less, Dboys being crap is your opinion or it's from personnal experience?

No, really, they're crap - everything from shell material to internal components to shoddy manufacture. Overgreased, poor shimming, cheap gears/bearings/pistons, and nothing is really reinforced for long term reliability.

And once you start replacing broken parts, the long term costs will exceed the cost of a decent gearbox up front.

Pick up a G&P drop-in. I'll cost you less in the long run.

If you adjust the AOE, re-shim, teflon tape the cylinder head, new nozzle, and you should have it running for a long time with good compression.

I believe Huang has some JG gearboxes for sale which are apparently quite decent for the price.

I have ordered a Dboy gearbox from Huang exactly, it's the only model he stocks. Since work takes over my schedule i airsoft once a month. I spend about 800BBs per game mostly semi-auto, so for the price if it breaks i will order a G&P one from jugglez.

edit- slink182 i know that G&P rocks, i just sold my G&P Vltor cqb-M4, it frigging shot like a laser beam with insane rof

Yeah, if you really want to buy a cheap GB, buy a Jing Gong one. If you want it last longer, replace the plastic bushing by metal ones, downgrade your spring to shoot approx. 350 fps, do a good grease job and a good shim job and your gun will last longer ;)

If you want JG, Ebairsoft has this for a rather cheap price.

Is Dboy made by JG?
Sorry i never really folowed brands, in my 2010 season i only stuck with G&P aegs and accessories. When airsoftparts go back online i might just end up pickup up a G&P mechbox and M120 Motor.

No it's not. JG copy TM designs in most of their guns and parts while D-boys copy VFC and a few others. More or less, they are almost the same in quality but D-boys seems to be more off spec.
