The GSG-5

Taking a break from political commentary.

This month sometime the GSG-5 makes it's debut in the United States. Some lucky people (resellers mostly) already have their hands on this new gun.

What is the GSG-5?

The GSG-5 is a ground up rebuild of the HK MP5, the difference is the GSG-5 is chambered for .22LR HV ammo making it legal in pretty much all States including California.

Since it is also a new weapons system it isn't specifically named in various Assault Weapons Bans past and current legislation (HR1022).

Finally the GSG-5 comes in at a VERY attractive price tag of $499. That is more expensive then the ever popular Rugar 10/22, but on a new weapons system the price is great.

The GSG-5 accepts all HK MP5 accessories that are not caliber specific so rails, mounts, sights, lights, slings, stocks, etc etc work on the rifle.

Here is a video review over at YouTube

Did I mention $499.

I'm buying one of these when they become available at retail stores sometime this month.
