I bought this fellow almost 11 months ago and hv fired round 1500 rounds without a single FTF or FTE or any sort of trouble. Previously I had Italian Adler the AK47 replica in .22 LR but tht gun use to hv FTF. I sold tht gun and bought the GSG-5. I M glad that I got this .22 shooter and ever since I hv loved target shooting and plinking with this gun along with Advantage Arms/Glock .22 LR configuration.

The gun came with a flash hider/Compensator and a plastic butstock. I hv taken out the factory butstock and hv installed the retractable stock.

I hv also installed the Holographic Sight with Red & Green Crosshair. Though the gun sights are sufficient enough to hit the target in Day or low light but the Red/Green cross hair holographic sight provides faster and better target shooting at night or in low light.

I will do the complete review of the gun soon but till then enjoy the pix.

Dear Glockcohlic,
I had a few questions regarding getting something similar for self-/home-protection:

1) Does your GSG-5 fall under PB or NPBs?
2) How much is the license going to cost me?
3) More importantly should I go for a provincial license or get the MOI (?) license from Islamabad?
4) What's the best place to buy it from -- specially if I don't want to end up with a desi knock-off version?
5) What's the approximate price for it these days?

Thank you very much in advance!

Dear Glockcohlic,

2) How much is the license going to cost me?
3) More importantly should I go for a provincial license or get the MOI (?) license from Islamabad?
4) What's the best place to buy it from -- specially if I don't want to end up with a desi knock-off version?
5) What's the approximate price for it these days?

Thank you very much in advance!

1) It is NPB (because it is semi-automatic .22)

2) If MOI, between 15k and 20k, if provincial, between 8k and 12k

3) Go for an MOI as it'll allow you to transport it anywhere in Pakistan.

4) Elahi Buksh close to Teen Talwar Clifton Opposite Institute of Chartered Accountants in Karachi. In Lahore, get it from PARA. These are the two places where you'll get the best prices in respective cities.

5) In Karachi Rs. 75k +/- 5k while in Lahore Rs. 70k +/- 5k.

Hope the above helps.

However, I would like to add this since you mentioned you want this for HD/SD. This gun is not for home / self defence. It is a gun for fun (tafreeh) only.

For this price, you can get a brand new excellent quality TAURUS for HD/SD.

So, the advice is, that if you are buying a gun with HD/SD as your primary objective, DO NOT BUY GSG-5.

Thank you very much, brother Salahuddin Ayubi! That was very detailed and incredibly helpful.

You mentioned Taurus as a potential option in the price range. May I ask if you are referring to the pistols Taurus makes or do they have some rifle(s) available as well?

And just out of curiosity, why isn't a 0.22LR weapons considered a good option for SD/HD? I mean, it can inflict quite a lot of damage, obviously less than a full-fledged rifle. Any insights you can give on this will be appreciated. Thanks!

Taurus Handguns. Preferably PT92B / PT99 / 917 / 909 models. All around 50k to 60k with capacity of 15 to 17 round magazines.



Check out the following links for .22LR as a SD/HD weapon:

http://www.pakguns.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=266

http://www.pakguns.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=2126

Google to find out more. Having gone through this thought-process of choosing between a .22 and 9mm, I've arrived at the conclusion that I would protect my near and dear ones with a 9mm and not with a .22

Without undermining the lethality of .22LR round, I would keep it a tad above air guns for fun and tafreeh (plinking) and much below a 9mm/30bore for SD/HD.

My advice:

If you have limited budget, then first cater to your SD/HD 'NEEDS' and if the budget then allows, then go for your 'HOBBIES'.

Here are some options:

a) CF-98 9mm very reliable chinese handgun (Rs. 28k)

b) Taurus (92/99/917/909) (Rs. 50-60k)

c) Stoeger Couger (Rs. 48 - 52k)

All the above will fulfill your SD/HD needs adequately. Stoeger and CF are suggested if you wish to conceal carry.

I was simply too lazy to go (once again) through the two threads mentioned by SA, but I might like to add: Another reason why I wouldn't want a .22 for defence is that due to its rimfire nature the .22 LR and .22 Magnum have a higher probability of misfire (failure of powder to ignite, failure to fire), compared to centrefires like the 9mm Para.
