Default Gsg 522

Hey what's up everyone . I have been thinking of purchasing a GSG 522 for something cheap to shoot but still quality. Any thoughts?

How about a link? Why are you interested in it, any advantages over the S&W and Colt as a "tactical 22lr"?

The only advantage I have seen is there around $150 less. I was wondering if anyone has one or knows someone with one and what they think of it.

No experience with them. How much have you seen them for, $250? S&W can be found for $400 and occasionally Colt.

Have a GSG-5 and it is OK; but I wish I would have waited for the newer Walther/Umarex/HK MP5. I have taken a good look at one of those and it appears to be better built than my GSG. I also have one of the SIG 522's and I will take that hands down over either one of the MP5 clones. It is a really nice little rifle.

Nothing wrong with the 10/22 but which model, the tactical version or plain jane? And what are we talking here, "Tactical .22lrs"? If not then throw in the Marlin Model 60 too.

The tactical 10/22 is what I was talking about. And my friend is the one who started this thread, because he is after a tactical 22 thats relatively inexpensive. Do you have any suggestions?

Colt or S&W when on sale. I bought the Colt M4 .22lr for $450, very pleased with it. Most go with the M&P15-22.
