I have been kicking the idea around of getting one, but I have a ton of .22lr rifles already.

Got one, and love it.
It works great after about 300 or so rounds I have had a few light hits no fires. Course taht was a 550 bulk pack.
Its a bit of a pain to take a part in only that the MP5 has push pins to take it apart. On the GSG5 those pins are screws, not really to much of a pain but if the MP5 can work with pins I just wish the GSG5 could have had the pins as well.
I really like mine, I shoot it more often then my other plinkers.
Friends that see it get all exctied to shoot it cuz is not as loud and dosent kick like and real MP5.
I know the MP5 dosent really kick but a few friends that I take shooting everynow and then aren't that tuff. :laugh:

hell, you could get a ruger 10/22 with one of those tasco stocks and stick a MWG 50 round mag on there....would function pretty much the same (but with more rounds).

The GSG-5 will be one of my next gun purchases. I love my 10/22, but this little baby is pretty sweet. My uncle has one, and I loved it. Ammo price is cheap, and it is a lot of fun to go shoot the varmints with.

Have two (one pistol one rifle) I plan on SBR the pistol and have already made a custom adapter for FH and silencer. With the rifle, I was lucky to get one of the earlier models with the front dust cover. Bought one of the mp5 cocking tube lasers, CA retractble stock, cheap utg milldot 4x scope and mount, looking for a good rail system. But it shoots like a dream with the scope and is just darn fun.

I really like the look of the GSG5. I might end up getting the pistol version and getting an SBR stamp down the line.

Does it come with a weaver rail?

But sometimes I just have to ask WHY when it comes to 10/22 kits: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewIt ... =108452031" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Most of those kits look just plain silly.

those things are really cool until u realize they are .22lrs. Seems kind of like playing with airsoft to me. In terms of functionality there is not much difference except in cosmetics. It just seems like a lot of dough to dish out for a .22lr that isnt ultra accurate.

Holy hell, that surely beats the cost of ownership of the real thing!

I guess if you want one, you're that much closer to being a true Internet Commando!

I got to say this one really looks Coooool though. :D

Getting shot with an airsoft gun probably hurts, getting shot with a .22 might make a guy cry for his momma. hehe

I finally got one and with a GSG5 collapsible stock. Which does not block the ejection port when collapsed. :monkey: :monkey:

I talked a co-worker into getting one and he loves it. And I still get to shoot it when we go to the range.
