Up for auction is a brand new GSG-522 .22 LR SD Version rifle. This rifle comes with one “banana” magazine that holds 22 rounds! (Additional mags are readily available on the open market for follow-up purchase.) Also included is a GSG factory Conversion Kit .... see below.....

This package also comes with a GSG 522-to-5 Conversion Kit. This is an interesting and useful kit. H&K sued GSG some years ago because the GSG Model 5 (precursor to the Model 522) looked too identical to the H&K MP5. H&K won the suit. In response, GSG created the Model 522 which still looks a lot like the MP5 but less identical to the MP5. Well, GSG then created this Conversion Kit which if installed will return the Model 522 to look almost identical to the Model 5 which is almost identical to the MP5. Whew…..did you get all that? Anyway, this kit is cool and you might well want to install it to have the “cooler looking” version of the GSG rifle intended to look like a MP5.

The GSG-5 / GSG-522 Conversion Kit includes (see the photo): 1. Trigger Housing 2. Safety Lever (Left) 3. Safety Lever (Right) 4. Magazine Release Lever 5. Receiver Cap 6. Sling Loop (2 pcs.) 7. Front Sight Blade Metal (2 pcs.) 8. Front Sight Blade Polymer (4 pcs.) 9. Sling Loop Screw (2 pcs.) 10. Cocking Tube Housing 11. Cocking Tube Housing PK 12. Cocking Tube Handle (2 pcs.) 13. Cocking Tube Handle SD 14. Cocking Tube (Front) 15. Firing Pin Retainer Set Screw (3 pcs.) 16. Cocking Handle Screw (3 pcs.) 17. Safety Screw 18. Hexagon socket screw key.

This item is in stock and ready to ship immediately upon full payment. Two of these identical guns (with conversion kits) are placed on auction at the same time. The photos in this auction are for one of the rifles and used in both auctions. Both rifle packages are new in box, straight from the manufacturer, with all factory paperwork. If you want both of them, and they are still available, just ask. (No discount for buying more than 1.)

American Tactical Imports/German Sport Guns GSG series of rifles has hit the market full force and this is their best selling offering in 22 Long Rifle. The GSG-5 was designed from scratch to be a very close replica to the MP5. The controls are identical. The appearance is very close, and unless you have a real MP5 right there to compare against, you'd be hard pressed to find the differences. The quality is very high; it’s a tight gun, built to exacting tolerances in Germany.

The GSG-5/522 operates by direct blowback. The bolt locks back on an empty magazine. The GSG-5/522 is shipped in the U.S. with a "fake" or dummy suppressor, to best replicate the MP5 and to address US Gun Laws. Standard-capacity GSG-5 magazines hold 22 rounds of .22LR and the follower can be retracted to make loading easier.

The .22 Long Rifle rimfire (5.6×15mmR) cartridge is a long established variety of ammunition, and in terms of units sold is still by far the most common in the world today. The cartridge is often referred to simply as .22 LR and various rifles, pistols, revolvers, and even some smoothbore shotguns have been manufactured in this caliber. It is occasionally referred to by its metric designation of 5.6×15mmR.

The cartridge originated from the Flobert BB Cap of 1845 through the .22 Smith & Wesson cartridge of 1857, and was developed by the American firearms manufacturer J. Stevens Arms & Tool Company in 1887 by combining the casing of the .22 Long with the 40-grain (2.6 g) bullet of the .22 Extra Long. For many decades, it has been a very popular cartridge around the world. It is one of the few cartridges that are accepted by a large variety of rifles, as well as pistols. Virtually every manufacturer of cartridge firearms makes at least one model chambering it, and this has been true for more than a century. The .22 Long Rifle and related cartridges (.22 Short, .22 Long and .22 Extra Long) use a heeled bullet, which means that the bullet is the same diameter as the case, and has a narrower "heel" portion that fits in the case.

Low cost, minimal recoil, and relatively low noise make .22 LR an ideal cartridge for recreational shooting, initial firearms training, small-game hunting and pest control. .22 LR is popular among novice shooters and experts alike. 22 LR is commonly packaged in boxes of 50 or 100 rounds, and is often sold by the brick, a carton containing either 10 boxes of 50 rounds or loose cartridges totaling 500 rounds, or the case containing 10 bricks totaling 5,000 rounds. A wide variety of .22 LR ammunition is available commercially, and the available ammunition varies widely both in price and performance. Bullet weights among commercially available ammunition range from 20 to 60 grains (1.3 to 3.9 g), and velocities vary from 575 to 1,750 ft/s (175 to 530 m/s). Promotional loads for plinking can be purchased in bulk for significantly less cost than precision target rounds.

The low cost of ammunition has a substantial effect on the popularity of .22 LR, being as little as one-fifth to even one-tenth other popular center fire cartridges. For this reason, .22 LR is commonly used for target practice. The low recoil of the cartridge makes it ideal for introductory firearms courses. Novice shooters can be surprised or frightened by the recoil of more powerful rounds. Beginners shooting firearms beyond their comfort level frequently develop a habit of flinching in an attempt to counter anticipated recoil. The resulting habit impedes correct posture and follow-through at the most critical phase of the shot and is difficult to correct. With high recoil eliminated, other errors in marksmanship technique are easier to identify and correct.

There are a variety of different types of .22 LR loads. They are often divided into four distinct categories, based on nominal velocity: (1) Subsonic, which also includes "target" or "match" loads, at nominal speeds below 1,100 ft/s (340 m/s), (2) Standard-velocity: 1,000–1,135 ft/s (300–346 m/s), Common velocities are around 1,125 ft/s (343 m/s), (3) High-velocity: 1,200–1,310 ft/s (370–400 m/s) per second, and (4) Hyper-velocity, or Ultra-velocity: over 1,400 ft/s (430 m/s). Annual production of .22 LR is estimated at 2–2.5 billion rounds, and 22LR is very affordable in all velocities. This rifle’s action is tuned for is the high velocity type. Use this specific ammo to minimize any occasional cycling problems which can occur with slower velocities.
