Gonna buy a Umarex MP5 .22LR
 
Is there any reason I shouldn't? I've read that they're pretty reliable.

i think they look better then the gsg's. if you like it and have money then why not by it! better then spending a couple grand on a 9mm version.

Sort of heavy.

I have about 5k rounds thru mine (HK MP5 SD)......I have a 4 reticle reflex sight on it zeroed to 25 yards......I love plinking with it and am good just shooting from the hip.........Everybody at the range can't believe it is just a 22.

No malfunctions so far.

Awesome. I picked it up. Can't wait to go to the range.

Should I use any specific ammo? The guy at the store suggested 1200fps+

Mine loves CCI Mini mags

My buddy has one and, NO specific ammo is required, it will shoot just about anything.
Now, he and I only shoot standard 22LR's. No subsonic/quiet or hypersonic ammo.
But, I think as long as you stay away from subsonic/quiet ammo you'll be fine.

once the shortages are over with you can then decide which it likes best
