    They are about the same price but which is better (the 22lr commited platform) in reliability, accuracy, fun, etc..???

    i own a GSG-5 and ar-15(not .22 though)
    i think in terms of fun factor i think GSG-5 wins
    its light it looks cool and just fun and i think those ar-15 .22 look kinda weird maybe because i own a real one...
    accuracy i think is around the same (but what is "accurate" for a .22 for you? if you're looking for real accuracy go with something else like a 10/22 but expect like groupings no less than 2 inches at 25 yards with GSG-5 which is not bad but not good either haha)
    as for reliability i've shot a few hundred rounds through my gsg-5 no cleaning and no problems thus far
    cant go wrong with either
    in the end its what your little heart desires
    :D

    Yea but the GSG-5 looks really sweet to me, and everyone and thier mother has a 10/22.

    Is the GSG-5 really only good for 2" at 25yds????:eek:

    I really hope that was a typo.

    well yeah 2" with the sights and no support
    if you put a cheap red dot maybe it'll be better
    :D
    personally i like mine alot and i would recommend it for anyone looking for a .22 but not a 10/22
    just pick up a few extra mags cuz those 22 rds disappear real quick
    :rolleyes:

    Yea thats what I need to hear!!! BUT......

    I could not find any more accurate barrels on the web, and I was hoping for at least 5" at 100yds.

    100yds? honestly i wouldn't really use the GSG-5 past 50yds its more of a fun plinker rather than a serious accurate rifle
    if your looking for a fun cheap day at the range then i would recommend that you get it
    but if your looking into something with more accuracy and versatility i would go with 10/22
    the only thing you can really do with your GSG-5 is get a top rail, red dot, retractable stock, and railed handguard.
    you might be able to make 5" at 100 yds but you'll need a scope

    I guess 50yds will have to do I just watched a few youtube videos and I am sold I think. I would still like to hear what other people have to say aboutit. Like reliability...
    Thanks for all the input thus far.

    ah no problem i know you'll enjoy it
    :D
    i've read because of the high demand of the GSG-5 they've been rushing them so the quality is not as good resulting in cracked carrier assemblies etc...
    i dont know how true this is but just to make sure you get one built earlier in the year like mines january and 300 rds no jams no misfeeds just a little dirty so
