    I picked up a GSG5 from a local guy here after I set up for our USPSA match on Saturday. After our match on Sunday we left some steel poppers up and had some fun breaking them in.

    I brought a brand new bulk box of Remington 550 count, and I left with maybe 100 rounds left, so I'd guess somewhere around 450 rounds shot. I had a few light strikes, and 2-3 bonefied FTEs and FTFs. But I'm pretty happy with it. My buddies bought brought their 10/22's and we had some steel set up World Shoot style and had a mini competition using steel.

    The gun was more than put through it's paces, I had 3 mags, and about half a dozen "testers". I was constantly filling magazines and passing them out to my shooting buddies to all get a chance to shoot it up, and they were going through the magazines back to back. As one person got done shooting, the next was behind them with a full magazine at hand.

    Here's the vid...

    Try to stay away from Remington ammo. It is the only kind that consistantly screws up the GSG-5.

    ahh, no cool. :thumbup:Thanks for the heads up. What kind of ammo do you run that you find is consistent?

    I use the Wally-World Federal Bulk Pack $12.97 for 550, CCI Mini Mags, Dynapoint.

    The cool thing about the GSG is that it will also cycle sub-sonic ammo.
