My dad had one and it just seemed like a POS im not trying to talk bad about German Sport Guns but they just seem cheap. But the reason the prices are so high on them now is because they are no longer imported because they were sewed by H&K I believe but i may be wrong about who sewed them but i know they were sewed and not being imported.
I thought the GSG-5's with fake suppressors were now illegal?
If you own one of the GSG-5 "SD" carbine versions with larger fake suppressor -- you are in violation of ATF/NFA regulations unless you remove the fake suppressor from the rifle. ATI (the importer) is in the process of acquiring ATF-legal replacements for the fake suppressors originally sold with the "SD" style firearms.
The lawsuit stopped importation, what's showing up at gunshows and the like are leftovers. If I remeber right importation stopped in October. I did see in shotgun news recently that the official hk version is out, made by umarex.
Worldwidefirearms just got there last shipment of them they are selling fast so hurry to get one if you are. I personally dont care for it but they are going up in price since more people know about them and want them now since they dont import them anymore.
