Biggest question for many new airsoft players is whether the Cyma CM023 airsoft gun can be upgraded to metal gearbox. A quick search shows many folks claiming that it's not possible. But a more careful in-depth search reveals a few folks has done it successfully. Let's take a look at those intels...
"I got this gun on an external website for 35$, now I know people complain about it breaking in a day. A medium quality airsoft gun for this price is great, but, airsoft guns of any type need to be treated.... at the least decently. I, am an airsoft junkie, so I did in fact have a metal gearbox to fit on hand and it works great, but before that I loaded it up and did some shooting. It shoots fairly good for a plastic gearbox and a cheap piston. What children tend to do with guns like these is fire full auto A LOT, which in fact does some pretty good wear and tear on the gun. I would recommend this gun to any first time airsofters and non-competitive veterans alike! But be warned it does break if not used properly, and if you plan on using this gun for a while, just spend the money to upgrade the gearbox and/or piston. Still great for the price." - KP5 CM023 Airsoft Electric Gun Full Size LOADED
"Ive done a jg/cyma half breed. Took a jg gear box from a busted jg ak47 and dropped it into a cyma body. I still have the plastic crapbox just incase the jg gearbox ever screws up. I can swap gearboxs in ak's pretty damn fast. All the cyma parts worked with the JG gearbox, no modding required. It is possible." - cyma cm-023 problem

I am not sure how people are able to upgrade the CM023. But based on personal experience (see "Is the Cyma CM.023 a True Tokyo Marui Replica?" in TrackBack below), this gun is not upgradeable. You can't swap a metal gearbox into it, without doing some major mods/cutting to the plastic shell.

I may have blew off upgrading the CM023 a little too fast. Lately, I've realized that maybe it's possible to put a version 3 gearbox into the CM023, because the version 3 gearbox has the motor holder, to keep the motor in place. Re-reading the quote intel report from above, I noticed someone has mentioned using the JG AK47 gearbox. If you cross reference to the Airsoft Electric Gearbox Variations chart, you'll see that the AK47 has a version 3 gearbox.
