    I found that American Tactical can't import anymore GSG-5 due to the October 20th suit, so if you're wanting a GSG, better get one before they are gone, I dealt with this guy at and he still had some for sale & shipped me 2 really quick, I'm gonna miss these clones, they are sweet!

    You know what would really be cool is an exact replica of an STG.44 as long as HK is at it.
