    The .22 "divison" of walther is umarex, an airsoft manufacturer. They may carry the good name of walther but are completely different than any centerfire walther product. I wouldn't expect these to be any great guns.

    Which really sucks because now GSG can no longer manufacture any GSG-5s, which were actually marginal products.

    Pretty much... HK sued GSG & ATI because their product looked similar.

    Then they licensed Umax to make a copy, which I'm sure will be about as reliable as the Umax Colt M4s, which have a pretty bad rap.

    The gen 2 GSG5 was decent, I had a PK and sold it because it was too heavy for my wife to shoot comfortably without a stock, and I was too cheap to SBR it :o I wish I had kept it, but I bought a Ruger MkIII instead to plink .22lr with.

    That makes too much sense, so probably not.

    Well, here it is. In response to the outrage caused by the discontinuation of the GSG-5 resulting from the settlement of the lawsuit between GSG/ATI & H&K, German Sport Guns and American Tactical Imports are happy to announce the new GSG522 series of .22LR firearms. Where H&K got to take their ball and go home, part of the agreement was that with a few changes to the look of the gun, GSG could continue to manufacture and ATI could continue to import a mechanically identical gun with subtle exterior changes to differentiate the gun from the original licensed MP-5 design, now to be made by Umarex. Now, the pictures:

    GSG and ATI will be offering all original designs now in the GSG522 style. Along with the standard carbine we will have

    We also have on the way, which we won't have images of for you until Shot Show GSG-5 Carbines coming in Real Nickel receivers, Digital Camo Receivers and Black Receivers with shiny wooden fluted grips and stocks. GSG is also going a step further by also offering GSG522 and GSGAK-47 with light weight receiver bodies designed to attract the attention of child and female shooters. We'll see how that goes. The GSG522 series also will have a lower price point than the former GSG-5 series with the light weights being even lower than that. MSRP is not being released until Shot Show, so we'll have more for you after we get back.

    So then, ready for the rotary magazine?

    The drum looks cool but I wonder how well it will function?

    I'm sure it'll be pretty flawless, I'm very impressed with the quality of the GSG.

    So they had to change the front sight post, and maybe a couple other cosmetic things - I really like the integration of the weaver rail, I'm glad GSG is still going to be making these. Even though I sold my PK, I'll probably buy another GSG rifle variant in the future :cool:

    Try loading a 30 round Remington 597 mag. I've actually lost blood doing that.

    For some reason the cosmetic changes make the gun look cheaper. Like one of the Daewoo H&K knockoffs. :sad2:

    The integrated rail pisses me off. I wish my GSG-5 had an integrated rail. :squint:

    I wonder how long my gun store will keep the original GSG-5 pistols in stock. I want to get one before the gimptified ones hit the shelves.
