    You now have a collector's item.

    German Sport Guns has discontinued production of the GSG-5 in the MP-5 image due to a law suit from HK.

    If you ever wanted one, you better act fast. I'm assuming these will be impossible to get in a week.

    The last shipment to enter the USA was on October 8, 2009. It was the last one.

    GSG is doing fine and will continue to offer their other firearms, and ATI will continue to warranty the existing MP-5 clones.

    They are fantastic guns. One of the best .22's I have ever owned or shot.
    You cant get a .22 with that much cool factor.

    The patents on the MP-5 would have expired long ago... I wonder what the basis is for an HK lawsuit? Oh wait, its HK, cause you suck and we hate you truly is their motto.:)

    Sad, it's a good thing I have mine. Sure wish I had the $$ to pick up a PK model though.

    The MP-5 was never patent protected.
    I don't know how all the legal stuff works.

    Personally as long as Hk is not selling Mp5 type rifles here in the US i don't see why not allow them after all its not like GSG or even any other hk clone companies are competing with HK when Hk does not even sell them type of rifles here in the US

    how can they have a issue with competition when they chose not to be in the game?

    Don't figure

    i would suggest if you ever wanted one to take a look on national boards like ar15.com can pick up one while you can still get them for $400 saw one 2 weeks ago for $350 (sold of corse)

    According to ATI's web site they have stopped importing htem pending resolution of the H&K lawsuit. They also state they expect to win the law suit as it would effect all mp-5 style guns from air-soft through our GSG-5s.

    Think I'll hold on to my 2 and hope they get it worked out.

    I hope the do too. The gsg5 line of guns are so cool. I assume they will win if thats the case. Although HK probably has some good lawyers.

    That is an old announcement. The claim is settled.

    Production has already ceased as of October 8, 2009. I said the last shipment was Oct 8th so I was a little off in the announcement.

    They are no-more. The importer must have all stock sold by Jan 31st.
    I bet that they are sold out in 2 weeks.

    So if needed, can you still get replacement part for them?

    Yes. ATI will honor the 2-year warranty and will continue to stock parts.

    On a positive note, ATI has the first GSG 1911 in their possession and can begin importing them in large quantities.
