well, i bought the GSG5 for the very reason that it does in fact look exactly like the MP-5.

i would have to click the HK option simply due to the verbage of the poll question.  whether or not we think HK are dicks would be a seperate poll.

I have $1000s of dollars wrapped up in HK guns.  But this just made me want to buy a G3 clone instead of shelling out the cash for a real HK.  Screw them.

Well with the amount of water under the bridge now with the HK suit settlement and a couple HK licensed versions of the MP-5 .22 on the market I can fully understand HK's postion on a couple different levels.

First off I would not want the HK MP5-A5 offering confused with the GSG/ATI version. The GSG feels like airsoft where the HK feels like a "real" MP-5 and is simply a better built carbine over-all.

Yeah, yeah they both  just spit .22s but with the $100.00 or so difference in price between the two HK had to be able to claim the orgional outward design back from the copy-cats. I guess it was all fun and games till their bottom line was affected.

I own the HK licenced version (MP5-A5) and I'm glad I waited before I pulled the trigger and bought a GSG 522 SD I was fondeling last year. The HK is well worth the difference in price.

Im glad the ATI can still offer the GSG 522 after the h&k BS
I just bought a GSG522, had a friend with me at the time and he bought one too even when there was an h&k version right next to the GSG :)
I install the kit to make it a GSG5 just for the fact to have a GSG5 and not the 522 version.
Price was not the deciding factor in my buying the GS version over the h&k version but I just cant stand a company crying fowl just because they didnt think of making one first. But thats life and I will vote with my wallet and when it comes to my GSG5 it will be GSG parts or I make my own. No h&k parts I any way shape or form for me.
I`ll stop rambling now.
My GSG5 loves Reminton sub-sonic ammo
