American Tactical GSG522 Semi-Automatic 22 Long Rifle 22+1 C
[522SDLB22]
$281.00
by John M Date Added: Monday 19 November, 2012
Took about a week from order to delivery - that includes a weekend. Not bad, but I was looking forward to delivery, so seemed to take a lot longer. Excellent condition once I got it out of the box. Started modifications immediately. Have read many posts and agree the rail needs to go. I have an old airsoft, so swapped the stock and rear sight. Ordered and installed push pins (only permanent mod as this requires a minor amount of drilling). Made it to the range 2 weeks after delivery. Just shy of 500 rounds, 2 FTF, 1 FTE. FTF clearly ammunition, FTE was questionable, but quickly cleared and no more issues. Used CCI HV and Win SuperX ammunition. Accurate at 50 yards with modified rear sight.

The downside starts with the instruction/owner manual. read it once, then toss it. Get the HK push pins, its worth not having to unscrew bolts every time you want to clean. Which leads to the real negative of this rifle, it is a pain to clean. As expected, 22LR is not the cleanest round, coupled with a lot of tiny crevices that are difficult to get into, cleaning takes some time.

Im ordering a conversion kit that contains the original GSG5 for the front site - airsoft rifle didn't cut it for this part. The site included with the rifle is open , not a traditional closed one. It works, but not as easy to frame targets.

All said and done, $308 for the rifle, $35 for upgrades, its an outstanding rifle that is a lot of fun for the money. Im looking at getting two more so my sons won't need to share ...
