I've been around airsoft, off and on, for about ten years now. I remember the days where there was Tokyo Marui and crap; with no in between. My first AEG was a Marui MP5 SD6. I have since owned 10 to 15 other guns of various quality. From a cheap WELL G3 SAS, to a tricked out MARUI MP5 J with nitro metal RAS. I have to say without a single doubt, that the D-BOY SCAR-L is the BEST STOCK GUN I HAVE EVER OWNED. PERIOD!!!!
First off, don't let the pictures fool you. The upper receiver is not that weird goldish color that it appears to be. Let me assure you the externals of the this gun are breath taking. The annodized tan finish on the upper reciever is gorgeous. It is only equaled by the soft textured, but incredibly strong lower receiver. The gun is almost all metal, except for the lower receiver, stock, and grip. I really was floored by the aesthitics of this gun. By far the most beautiful gun I've ever owned.
Secondly, the internals are as solid as a clone gun can come. It shoots harder than any gun I have ever owned. I heard alot about the crappy shimming on these guns, but when I got mine, its sounded just fine. Its close to 400 fps out of the box, making this ready for field duty without any tune ups. .25 fly out of this gun with terrifying velocity.
There are some bad things about the gun. The pistol grip is pretty cheap. Its solid, and should hold up to regular play, but its ugly. It really brings down the look of the other wise stellar gun. The stock has visible seam lines. Not nearly as bad looking as the grip, but does represent a strike against the gun.
The gun needed a thorough cleaning of the barrel, before it could be skirmished. The shot were coming out pretty wild till I greased up the barrel and hop up. Now it works quite nicely.
All and all, the knocks aqainst this gun, are really nit picky at best.
The gun comes with a sofid vert. foregrip, a really nice tan high cap mag, metal barrel extension, and removable rear sight. The magazine is as beautiful as the rest of the gun, and feeds flawlessly.
With a version 2 gear box, STANAG mag compatibility, and over a 100 mm of rail space; there is no limit to the customization of this gun. I tricked mine out with a new 416 style grip, magpul E-Mag, tan PEQ box, magpul AFG, and baraska red dot scope. It's an absolute work of art.
In conclusion, just buy it. You're on this page right now deciding whether or not to buy this gun. Just buy it. Trust me. At $190 you're getting as good an airsoft gun as you can buy, for any price. The only thing you need to decide is whether to buy this one, or the SCAR-H, which is freaking $160!!!!!! Just buy it.
Just buy it.
