    It might be a sports gun probably, it is one of the funniest gun that you can own if you are looking for just something that is fun to shoot, it's cheap to shoot because it is 22 long rifle. I would be nice if it was rea...lly suppressed but of course its not, its just a fake suppressor. more

  • GSG-522 from ATI - American Tactical Imports: Great Quality, Fun and Cheap To Shoot
    It is a kind of a mock H&K Mp5 in fixed stock dexterous safety, does have the fake suppressor on the front, it's a good gun it shoot 22 long. a couple problems failure to cycle may be 4 times if that out of 200 rounds, i...t is made in germady great quality, it's pretty much all plastic polymer and it is still good gun all around. more

  • GSG 522 Review
    This GSG 522 is a copy of the mp5. It has a 16 inch barrel, a barrel shroud or a mock suppressor and has rubber handguard. The accuracy of this rifle is enough especially for a 22 but still not reliable rifle. The GSG this copy of the mp5 because the original HK mp5 is extremely expensive but this ATI GSG 522 is they look pretty close to their parent gun. more

    This is the copy of the H&K MP5 22 long riflen, it is polymer but many people called this plastic because some part is actually plastic and its kind of old fashioned, it got a nice stock which is plastic the upper and upper is made of plastic, trigger is plastic, the magazine is also plastic a lot of plastic more

    Had been thinking of buying one of these for a long time. Buds had it on clearance so I finally bought one. Took about a week to arrive at my dealer. Took it to the range and put 400rnds through it with out any problems.... Wish I would have got it sooner, really fun plinker. This was my first firearm purchase through Buds and it went very smooth. I will buy again from them. more

    Received product in 7days. Excellent weapon for CQB training with law enforcement. I have had two FTE out of around 1000rds.

    IMO this is the best buy in the GSG series. All metal receiver which only weighs about a pound more than the plastic one. The forward cover is classier looking and the faux suppressor gives it a quality look. Only weak p...oint is the cheap looking plastic stock. Thankfully that can easily be replaced with an inexpensive collapsible metal stock. Needs to be cleaned/lubed before shooting, after which it performed flawlessly on various ammos that I fed it. Accurate and reliable at a reasonable price. more

    This is one wicked badass gun! I was issued an MP5 when I was on my department's SWAT team. Yes; full auto was cool, but it was a waste of ammo and even on semi-auto you'd chew through a box of 9mm in a matter of seconds.... I gave the MP5 up after 10 years on the SWAT team, but missed the fun with my issued... So when I heard about the ATI, I was a tad skeptical. Reviews on other web-sites gave it better performance than the Ruger 10/22 or Mossberg 702. And the price at Bud's Gun Shop? Amazingly inexpensive compared to other web-sites. So my model has the heavy fake suppressor, collapsible stock and tri-rail hand guard. After looking (even on ATI's web-site) I didn't find a configuration like this anywhere! It's was ideal for my "tacti-cool" plan for the gun. I ordered a flashlight, front hand guard grip and laser (and along with an order of rubber picatinny rail caps) got my whole package put together today. It was my Christmas present from my family... I'll add that this is an awesome configuration and it's something I hope was not a limited run, as I've yet to see any elsewhere. First, the gun felt as good as the real H&K MP5. Comfortable, but with the added bonus that the retractable stock can be closed at different positions; where my MP5 was either open or closed. This is a major plus, since I bought the retractable stock so my four year old could shoot (dad helps) and shoulder it as well. The gun fired about 150 rounds without flaw, shooting the Winchester 36 grain hollow point (from a big 555 box). I only had two (2) jams and it was when I realized that the rubber rail cap was extended about an inch beyond the picatinny rail near the ejection port. Basically the rounds were ejecting out and flying back into the bolt as it was closing. Once I removed the rubber rail cap this problem was solved. Another bonus was the bolt stays open on the last round. Something my real MP5 didn't do. The only thing I didn't care for and will take getting used to is that the charging bolt can be forward and still has to come on a complete cycle if the weapon is locked open. The sights will take a bit getting used to as they're more of the horse shoe style than H&K's rings. Not a major issue. I haven't taken mine apart yet, but it doesn't seem that difficult. I will say that it's built SOLID. I heard some negative reviews on the top picatinny rail, but mine seems real tight and I have no hesitation on adding a red/green dot scope later and have any concerns about keeping it zeroed in. The pistol grip is comfortable, the trigger pull is light and crisp. The retractable stock does have a slight "shake" to it, but so did my real MP5. The receiver is built solid as well. The only thing I had a cosmetic issue with was the thin barrel, but it's easily hidden with the fake suppressor. I hope guns like this don't fall under any type ban. I'm loving mine and the price is excellent. To add all the gear to a Ruger; by adding a ProMag stock, would have run me a $110 more than what I put into the ATI. I'm very impressed. more

    While at the local gun shop noticed one on the wall. Liked the way it feels in my hands and the thought of a mp5 trainer. So picked it up and have put a few thousand rounds through mine. While this is no toy it is very a...ccurate, reliable, and fun to shoot. I tought my wife to shoot with it. Not to heavy but well made with good weight. I shoot it about weekly. more

    Like any gun, your satisfaction with the GSG522 will depend upon what you want to do with it and what you expect from it. If you are after a 22LR clone of the MP5 for training purposes, you may be disappointed--I can't b...elieve that any military or law enforcement use this as a trainer, it's just too weak for that. If you are after a fun toy, however, then the GSG522 could be your man. Make no mistake, the GSG522 is a toy. You will notice this right out of the box. The butt stock is everything you would expect to see on a cap gun from Toys-R-Us. The rear sight is plastic as is the scope mount--yes, the scope mount is plastic. Both the front annular shroud and rear peep sight of the original MP5 (and earlier version of the GSG) have been exchanged for a poorer system that seriously compromises vertical accuracy. I can't imagine getting the cheaper, light weight version where more parts are plastic. The good news is that all of these defects can be fixed with a conversion kit, aluminum scope mount, better butt stock, etc. The bad news is that to do so will cost you an additional $100 to $200, or more. If you can get past that this is a toy, you will have a lot of fun at the range. With the original style iron sights from a conversion kit or found online installed, it's quite accurate. The trigger is fast and pretty light. It works well with many types of ammo, and malfunctions are rare. Pros: 1. Very fun to shoot 2. Accurate and reasonably reliable. 3. Damn fun to shoot Cons: 1. It's a toy 2. An overly-complicated design makes it a pain to disassemble and clean 3. Expect to add at least $100 in improvements (the scope mount is useless for starters) 4. Made from cheap, poor quality materials While I won't be selling my GSG522 because of the fun factor, if I had to do it over again, I wouldn't have bought one. Not worth the price. If you are only going to get one "tacticool" gun in 22LR, buy a Sig 522. I have both, and the Sig is hands down the better of the two. It's better designed and made, just as fun and not a toy. more

    I absolutely love this gun! Let me start off with this gun is sleek and sexy as hell. It is a bit front heavy and overall heavier than I imagined that it would be. I was able to get 1inch groups at 25 yards. I ended up s...witching the front hand guard to one that had pic rails on it for a tactical light, changed out the stock with a retractable one, and got a reflex sight for it as well. It shoots beautifully and is just a BLAST to plink with. I mainly compete in 3 gun competitions and shooting .223, .40SW, and 12 ga gets a bit expensive after awhile. I decided to pick this up because I wanted to have something that I could shoot that wouldn't put a dent in my wallet. Since it eats .22lr you can have hours of enjoyment with it for a very low price. If you want a gun that is accurate, cheap to shoot, and fun as hell, then this is the gun for you! I highly recommend it!!! more

    Just got back from the range with this gun, shot 350 rounds of Blazer .22lr 40gr. This is a very nice shooter, quite, accurate, and very light recoil. Gun performs excellent, only thing to be desired would be a better ma...gazine, any feed issues I had were magazine related. On a side note, while cleaning this gun be careful not to lose the slide catch spring located on the inside wall of the breach because it will fall out. Again excellent service with Buds. more

    The weapon is cool as crap. The low rating comes from my expereance with Buds, the shipping was slow, hell I ordered ammo from another site and I got it before the order for the weapon got updated to the shipping dept. I... called and got disconected I email after the 7 day period twice and never got a reply. I know they were dealing with the whole credit card thing but an email would of been nice. more
