My personal experience with them is that they are pretty good. They last pretty long stock and shoot pretty well. Timnis had a CYMA AK74 for about 3-4 years, so I'd ask him if you have any questions. JG and Echo 1 are also great brands for beginners and have pretty long lives and good performance.

CYMA makes a great ak for the price and dboys does better with SCARs.
I would go with CYMA, they have a bit more experience and better reviews.
You missed a few capitalized letters (grammar and spelling earn a lot of respect on here).
EDIT:
CYMA does better with externals, but Echo 1 will give you better internals for the price.

I have a cyma m14 and its one of the best aegs for the money, this is sort of along the lines of an opinion thread however.

Go with a Cyma. They have had a pretty rock solid clone AK for years. They do shoot pretty hot however, though most clones do nowadays. You will probably have to downgrade the spring to make it field legal.

Dboys guns tend to just fall apart on their own. Can't recommend them to anyone. I'll have to disagree with dubbs on their Scars, they fall apart also.

I have a cyma ak I picked up on here for 20 bucks, works great, shoots pretty well, grouping is a little bigger than I'd like, but for the price, hard to beat.

Opinion thread man but from my personal experience the CYMA cm048m (AKM) is extremely well made and there is a AK 74 version (cm048).

I've got a Cyma M14 and my buddy has a Cyma AK. Both are great and durable guns for the price. Also got JG and Echo 1 M4. Both are great, durable, solid guns. I recomend any of these three brands.

I'd go for the CYMA.

The last two clone AEGs I've bought were Dboys and both were nightmares to deal with.

There is no opinion thread as opinion posts are not permitted. You should ask specifics on the gun in question

AK wise, both are great guns, but CYMA does better internals, and DBoys has by far better externals.

Both are decent, but I would aim for the CYMA. CYMA's quality has gotten much better the last few years.

Most of DBoys ARs are pretty suckey. Their PDW, SR25, and AKs are pretty good.

To runner3: As stated in Forum Rules and Guidelines: 8) Opinion Posts - These were forbidden once, and they now are again. Why you may wonder? Because "What is a good X" is not a clear enough question. If you are interested in the data pertaining to a particular item, form your question and type it, such as "how does the velocity of x rifle compare to x rifle", etc etc etc.

Go with Cyma though.
