German Sports Guns (GSG) have produced a purple framed version of their Firefly .22lr pistol, which is being imported through American Tactical. The GSG Firefly has been available since 2016, but this version offers a little more color to contrast the typical modern firearms market.
American Tactical had the following to say about the new purple pistol:
(Summerville, SC ) – American Tactical, US manufacturer and world-wide importer of firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment, is happy to introduce the new Purple GSG Firefly.
Now available in purple, the GSG FireFly comes in threaded and non-threaded barrel models. It features a wear-resistant alloy frame outfitted with an integrated accessory rail. The slide features adjustable sights, and along with the rugged blowback system, fixed barrel and superior ergonomic grip.
The GSG FireFly delivers remarkable accuracy. Additional safeties include an internal locking device and slide mounted ambidextrous safety and de-cocker. It’s the perfect pistol to learn how to shoot with.
The Purple Firefly is chambered in .22 LR. It his available with a 4″ threaded barrel (GERG2210TFFL) or a 4.9″ non-threaded barrel (GERG2210FFL). The frame is zinc alloy over molded polymer and the slide is zinc alloy. It has a 10-rd magazine capacity and an MSRP of $269.95.
TFB covered the initial roll-out of the pistol in 2016 when GSG formally released it. GSG had already been making the same pistol for SIG Sauer, named the Mosquito. When Sig Sauer dropped the Mosquito offering, GSG continued manufacturing it under their own name.
