Is this true? Who carries them? There was a lengthy thread on HKPro about trying to SBR this gun and nobody mentioned this option.
To the OP, I personally like the HK .22 better than the GSG-5. I also had the pre-lawsuit GSG-5SD and sold it once I bought one of these. I've had zero problems with mine thus far, I'd just really like to SBR it.
About the only complaint I have is that it's a PITA to completely disassemble for cleaning. If you're one of those that likes to do a really good cleaning after every range trip this might bother you.
