    Ok so ive been looking around for a friend who is beginning airsoft and he has a budget of under 200 for everything, gun, battery charger, etc. so anyway ive looked at several guns including dboys, jg, and the gun shown in the link below. I know jg makes some decent starter guns but i really dont know much about dboys. So out of all these guns which would be the best.

    Dboys are basically metal bodied JGs.

    So considering the similar pricetag your saying a dboys is better
    Edit:
    Also does anyone know how jg vs dboys internals stack up?

    Dboys is a great alternative to JG. Each of them have their pros and cons.

    The best thing I found when I opened up a dboys for the first time, was a beautiful set of XYT gears. That made my day. Overall I like the GB (this was in a dboys scar). Definitely needed an AoE correction and a shim job. I like the piston in them as well, little to no wear.

    The downside is this gun didn't last for a year before it had problems. I blame it on the poor wiring system in the Scar-H, There m4's should be fine because the wiring system in the scar was a rebrand of vfc.

    Internals are about the same.

    Pistons are a shade different in color. Teeth are same. Piston head/cylinder head/cylinders/tapplet plate is same.

    DBoys nozzles comes in clear sometimes. JG is a tan/cream colored one.

    DBoys plastic 7mm bushings last longer then the JG cast pot metal 7mm bushings. Must replace the JG ones ASAP.

    JG has a better stock motor then the DBoys guns. The DBoys motors tend to burn out faster and have less torque.

    DBoys guns are price wise cheaper. But you can spend a little more for a JG with a basic MOSFET. Not the best, but doesn't somewhat of the job. Heats up too much. Saves your contacts but the MOSFET fails after abuse.

    I've noticed the JG gearbox shells are cast a little weaker then DBoys shells. Very minor interior gearbox shell differences. But the JG shell has proven to be a little on the weaker side. Problem started to arise with the JG drop in gearboxes cracking left and right. Even the V3's JG gearboxes.

    DBoys metal bodies tend to be of less external quality then the JG metal bodies. DBoys is a little heavier, casted crudely, but have a nice paint finish. JG is cast about the same and has decent paint finish. Both have a good fitting and good tolerance to parts. Just that the cast metal is still soft and on the fragile side.
    Noticed the DBoys metal bodies cracking more often then people that had the JG metal bodied guns.

    Yes they both have their ups and downs.

    I've had more success with selling DBoys cause of the cheaper price. But JG guns have proven to be very reliable and last a longer time for a little more money.

    Good luck man :)
