As mentioned elsewhere, GSG has settled with HK. Per the terms of the settlement, importation of the GSG-5 ceased early last week, making the remaining GSG-5 .22LR rifles in inventory into collector’s items.
This will pave the way for HK to begin importing the .22 LR clones of the MP-5, MP-7, and other firearms. Production of these guns has been sourced to Umarex, makers of licensed airsoft knockoffs and most recently the Colt M4-22 clone.
That is too bad. I was actually considering having one, just for kicks. Oh well. I can understand HK’s position, but it isn’t like I was able to buy a real MP-5. They weren’t losing any of my business to GSG for what it is worth.
Eh. Umarex makes the SIG Mosquito and Walther P22, right? After the trouble my SIG Mosquito has given me, and reported problems with the the Walther P22 and Colt M4-22, I think I’ll steer clear of Umarex products.
