    Just bought one of these tonight at the LGS.

    It is a really convincing copy of a STG44 only in .22 LR (not that I have ever handled a real one). I was so amazed to find such an interesting rifle just sitting on the shelf and realized that if I thought it over the rifle would probably sell out from under me.

    Much neater than the MP5 clones. Real pics to follow.

    Paid $570 which is at least 5% below retail list price.

    The original Sturm is one sexy beast. The .22 looks cool.

    Looks cool, one of my friends had the first run of GSG-5 and it worked great

    Too bad .22lr is about as hard to find as 7.92×33mm Kurz

    Honestly this is why im not real worried about it..I have MAYBE 1500-2000 rounds on hand...I could see it being ZERO if we had that already :)

    Having handled and shot (blanks) an original Stg44 as well as your version.....they are VERY close. Dimensionally almost identical, weight is pretty close. The .22 weighs a tiny bit less (the original's around 11lb) but it feels nearly identical in the hand. More so than the MP5 clones (having shot the GSG and a lot of real MP5s) since the '44 clone weighs closer to the actual weight than the GSG does to the MP5.

    Have not shot the .22 StG-44 yet but one is on my 'eventually' list.

    I bought one a few months ago... it is a very nice carbine (one of the few guns I have that I can afford to shoot)... kinda heavy for a .22 but what a solid platform.
