I purchased the GSG-522 in November 2012 from The Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore, and I have been very pleased with the performance. I emailed my FFL license with the order, and received the gun within a few days. I am very pleased with the service and prices from S.O.S. If youre looking for a very inexpensive, fun way to shoot 22lr, then you should consider the GSG-522. I ran several magazines through the gun firing at a high rate of speed, and I only had one minor jam. The magazines arent the best in the world, but they performed perfectly fine for what I was using it for...plinking. Most of the components like the stock are made out of plastic, but this is also what makes this gun so affordable. I personally dont have any issues with the plastic components, and the gun has a very solid feel to it.
