Any ideas on the current value of the GSG-5 .22's? I have one I bought NIB about 8 months ago; recently heard they may have stopped production. Has that affected their value?

Value seems unaffected so far - can still be found new on gunbroker for $450 to $500 or so.

It is true they stopped importing the GSG-5. However.....they are now importing the GSG-522, which is the post lawsuit model..which has a few mainly cosmetic differences but internals are the same. Apparently, they will also be bringing out parts kits to make them look exactly the same as the GSG-5, which is apparently ok via the lawsuit....what a pointless exercise that was by HK.

Because of this reimporting of a new model, I doubt the 'original' GSG-5's will gain much in value, at least in the short term. Another factor that is keeping the prices down are the quality competitor rifles based on the AR platform that are now out, such as the S&W M&P 15-22's.

just sold one with 4 mags for $600

my understanding is the factory hicaps have become hard to get and are the only decent ones out there....dunno I bought it for less than $200 sold it for $600....God bless America! ;)
