    I bet they sell every one they make. With the way ammo prices are today anything that looks half way cool and shoots cheap ammo will be a money maker.

    Who wants to pay may royalties for a pistol gripped short barrel shotgun styled .22?

    Why would they go bankrupt? I don't understand what your point is.

    Probably and I'm not sure they would have had a market when wwb 9mm and russian 7.62 were about about $.10 a round but today when you're lucky to even find 7.62 in stock I'd sure like to be selling those too expensive hotcakes.

    answered below (bankruptcy was put to emphasize my opinion)

    there is no market at that price point, not even if .22 was a cent/rd

    Seems like a reasonable price to me. People buy 10/22's and bolt all sorts of nonsense to them to make them look like black rifles. Why not just produce a 22 rifle that looks like a black rifle. Makes sense to me.

    If people are willing to put $1000 into a 10/22 I'm sure there are people who would pay $600 for a 22 that looks like a AK.

    yes, it's fucking novelty
     
  18. The MP5? Or the GSG? Or both?

    Like Yar said, people spend lots more than the cost of a GSG to rice out other .22s, why not just buy a GSG?

    would you rather spend $1,000 making a 10/22 look like an MP5, or buy a $600 MP5?

    I'm confused...people seem to be more than willing to pay 500-750 for a tacticool .22 (price of GSG-5 with mark up in many places). Why would this be a bad thing for GSG?

    I am so fucking confused ITT.

    I looked at the tacticool stocks for my 10/22. I didn't like any of them so I left it alone. I stoned the hammer, and added an optic. It runs great.

    The gsg5/etc is just a "fun" gun.

    My brain has exploded from reading this guys posts.
