Gsg stg-44

Went to the LGS and saw this behind the counter, so I picked it up for my collection. Total impulse buy I bought the GSG-5 a few years back, and it's a cheap fun plinking gun.

You did exactly what I will do when I see one in person. Please post a range report and review. Congrats.

Well, I'm more of a collector than shooter, so it may be a few years for a range report

It took 3/4 years before I shot my GSG-5, and Kel Tec sub 2000. I still have some bought over 10/15 years ago that I haven't even taken out yet.

Its a shame it won't be shot. there is one at my local shop and I've been resisting the urge to go into debt to buy it. (poor college student)

much better built than the GSG AK-47, and the Amish built box isn't too shabby

The STG-44 will get shot down the road. The shop had two of these and they weren't out on the floor yet. I ordered two spare mags this morning.

I had a Chinese SKS delivered to the house last Fri., and have another one being delivered Mon. as I missed the UPS guy yesterday. All stamped matching. Hope the one I get from AIM Monday will be just as nice. Again these will never get shot, not going to waste my time cleaning the cosmoline out of them

They (STG-44) are pricey at 598.00 OTD, and the SKS from Century was $252.00 delivered, one coming from AIM $249.00, still pricey.

From AIM's website

"Advanced Tactical Imports German Sport Guns Schmeisser STG-44 .22lr caliber semi-automatic Rifle. A faithful .22lr caliber semi-automatic reproduction of the infamous "Sturmgewehr 44" Assault Rifle developed by the Germans during WWII. The GSG STG-44 features a weight of 9.5lbs, a 17.2 barrel, an overall length of 37.2 and real solid wood furniture. Shipped with a 25 round capacity magazine and in an Eastern Pine box hand-crafted by the Amish in the mountain region of New York state."

its the price of "tactical" .22LR nowadays, the Sig 522 was $600 when it first came out and the Beretta ARX .22 was suppose to have a MSRP of $500-$600

no argument here, I wanted a .22 rifle so I bought a CMMG .22 bolt for my AR and two magazines for a grand total of $170

I avoid going into gun shops so I dont have items follow me home. When I make a rare trip into the only local shop it is straight to the reloading section and out.

Believe me, I had a hard time talking myself into a $600.00 .22, but the wife was standing next to me saying "Just buy it, don't stare at it" I like the GSG-5 and it was half the price of this IIRC

I usually head to the milsurp section first, then scan behind the counter of guns that haven't been priced for the floor, that's what gets me. The shop will take any firearm I want, put my name on it, and put in the back for 5 days. It gives me time to think about it, but this was a "I want it now"

The GSG-5 is a fun plinker, plus the mags are fairly cheap. I've bought worse rifles that had me scratching my head "Why did I buy this?" The VZ-52 is one for starters, a Marlin 444, and a Ruger 44 mag lever action is another.
