The upper receiver of the MK17H is constructed out of high quality metal and features a very realistic bolt with functioning bolt catch. A CQB style outer barrel as well as a foldable and retracting stock makes the MK17H a very compact and ergonomic rifle that is great for field or close quarters. The MK17H is also fully ambidextrous featuring a magazine release and fire selector on both sides of the gun.

When I first held the D Boy Mk17-H, I immediately noticed that it felt solid in my hands, and that it was extremely comfortable to shoulder. With the adjustable cheek rest, my eyes lined up perfectly with the flip up sights almost immediately. One thing that your eyes notice right away when examining the gun is that there are no trademarks, a feature that actually gives the gun a stealthy, almost SWAT style look. The gun is noticeably lighter than many of the other SCAR-H replicas on the market, allowing for the addition of VFGís optics, lasers, lights, or really any other accessories without having to worry too much about the additional weight when carrying. D Boy also did a great job on the realism factor with the ambidextrous selector switch, ambidextrous cutouts on either side of the gun for the charging handle, and the fully functioning bolt-catch. The stock on the gun is retractable, extending a couple of extra inches making it much more comfortable for those of us with longer arms, as well as being equipped with an adjustable cheek rest for added comfort, and the ability to be folded into the side of the gun, shortening it significantly and making it much more controllable for CQB style situations. The gun also features a full-length rail along the top of the upper receiver and out toward the end of the barrel, providing premium real estate for optics, PEQ boxes, aftermarket iron sights, or an infinite number of other top-mounted accessories, as well as shorter rail segments on both sides and the bottom of the front of the gun, which are optimal for lights, lasers, and grips of any type. The magazine is also very realistic, in that it is shaped very much like the 7.62 magazines used by the real SCAR-h weapons.
The D Boy Mk17-H does have an issue with the folding stock not locking into place when folded. D Boy has recognized this as a manufacturer defect, where others would call it a 'non-function', and will likely take corrective action on future versions of the MK17. Fortunately, the defect with the stock has absolutely no affect on the performance of the gun, it still shoots exactly as it should. In
light of this, Airsoft G.I. will be selling them at a discounted rate.
For the range test, I took the D Boy MK17 to the yard along with an 11.1 LiPo battery and .25 gram BBs. I set up 3 targets in increments of 15 yards and set up in a resting position to keep the gun as sturdy as possible. At 15 yards I was easily able to hit the targeting making a very tight grouping on both semi and fully automatic, but that is to be expected at only 15 yards. Next I stepped up to the target at 30 yards; again I was easily able to hit the target nearly every time. Of course I wasnít able to get as tight of a grouping but that is to be expected at the longer range. Surprisingly, even at 30 yards I was still able to maintain a nice grouping on full auto. Finally I took aim at the final target at 45 feet, and thatís where I was extremely surprised. It took me some time to get the hop-up just right but I was able to hit the target about 3 out of 6 times.
Overall, the comfort and stability of this gun, paired with the smoothness and accuracy with which it shoots, make it a great gun for the price. On top of that, the added discount because of the manufacturer defect make it an even better deal, especially considering that the defect has absolutely no effect on the gunís performance and playability. I have to admit that D Boy really stepped up their game when designing this gun, and would suggest that everyone take the time to check one out.
