    I haven't even gotten to take it to the range yet and I'm already looking at getting a screw-on adapter and suppressor for it. Gemtech and a couple others make one that would run about $375+$200 tax.... anyone else using a suppressed .22LR? No real reason other than I could shoot on my dad's land without waking the neighbors or using hearing protection, plus of course it's cool :o

    :rofl: I know. I probably won't get it, I'd rather spend the $575 on another gun. Probably will be a shotgun or go towards the AR fund. :o

    Actually a friend of mine is in the same situation. He's debating over whether to build a suppressor and do the tax deal or pay for one and skip the machine work.

    In any case he's making thread adapters for it so if you want one I'm sure he could make 2 just as easy as one.

    I would shoot the GSG before doing anything else to it. Maybe get a cheap rail for an optic, or a new stock, but that's about it.

    For me, the cool factor wore off after the first 100 rounds. It's a decent plinker, but it feels like you're shooting an airsoft gun.

    I'll keep mine around for a little longer, but I can see myself selling it in the near future. Good thing they're popular enough that I won't lose money selling.

    For $1k (cost of GSG and suppressor), I can think of a lot of other guns I would rather have.

    It's a .22 what do you want a heavy gun with lots of recoil?

    I just didn't know any better. I've never had a .22.

    I never understood the whole "the gsg feels like an airsoft" line. Mine feels like a .22. It handles well, feels solid, doesnt rattle, the controls are good.. hate hate hate hate hate.

    He said $40 shipped. He can make it out of 4130 or stainless. Not sure about the 3 lug part yet...

    The 4130 isn't case hardened is it? It really doesn't matter to me, whatever he's making his own adapter out of is fine.

    I'm thinking of trading my GSG-5 for an M&P 15-22.

    Man, you guys need to stop the GSG5 hate. At least you have the option of buying the fuckin' thing... :wtc:

    Us canucks got raped again when the RCMP decided the GSG was a prohibited variant. At least we're getting the Umarex M4 .22 whenever it gets imported: that'll be buttloads of fun.

    Oh, and you get to play with silencers. Eat all the dicks. :big grin:
