    The point of airsofts are to have milsim/random stuff for fun. You don't want to shoot your best friend with your Glock now do you?
    My point was directed at a $600 .22LR replica of the STG 44 not airsoft rifles.

    he has a point though, why dump $600 on a a gun when you can get a $100 Mossberg 702 that performs just as well?
    Because the Mossberg doesnt look like an STG-44, for one

    I think it looks absolutely lovely, and I'll bet you anything that if this model is popular enough, they'll be releasing caliber variants.

    Edited:

    I'd want it in 9mm Luger, or at least .22 WMR?

    Yea, .22 WMR would be easier and still pretty cheap.
    GSG doesn't do their guns in other calibers. They are made of pot metal. They won't last firing a larger bullet out of them. Also, I think that .22lr has exceptions on import restrictions that other guns don't.

    Eh, I still think .22 replicas of bigger firearms are like putting bodykits on a family car and pretend you're like Need for Speed or something.

    It does not feel as fun, and people will think you're a tool.
    I would agree with you, but getting an actual STG-44 is damn near impossible and ludicrously expensive, so I think in this case its alright.


    Getting one of the GSG .22 AKs, for example, is kinda silly.

    In theory you could reload .22lr, but it would be difficult and expensive

    you can load them yourself if you buy unspent casings but it's not worth the extra time and money unless you're a masochist. they're only good for one shot

    Depends on the department. Some issue sidearms while other smaller ones require you to purchase your own. I know the Mass. State Police is switching from Sigs to S&W M&P's in either .40 or .45. I am a lowly CJ Major for now, but from all the officers I have met they carry different stuff per department standard.

    Pretty much this.

    The department I'm involved with only has 2-3 officers that use sigs, a few that have 1911's and the rest use glocks.

    Glocks are more common seeing as they're pretty simply to operate and it costs almost nothing to get a police trade in that has never really been shot and just has some holster ware.

    Once again, and hopefully I get the calibre name right this time, I'd rather an MP-40 in 9mm than .22. I also want one with a folding stock and original length barrel, which would probably be legal here.

    Then again, the 9mm could only have a max of 10 rounds if it's a pistol, 5 if rifle, whereas the .22 could have as much as you goddamn wanted if it was a rifle... Man our laws suck sometimes.

    Dammit, it's like every replica of ww2 weaponry is either in .22lr or expensive to the point of painful.

    If I ever become a firearm manufacturer, I shall mass-produce Papashas and STG-44s.

    Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The only place less gun-friendly than here in this country is probably in Montreal, Quebec, because that's where all the school shootings keep happening.

    All of you seem to be missing the point entirely of the GSG STG - 44 replica, I its more for the feel of it rather than being a plinking gun. Some people want one with out spending thousands of dollars. Don't complain about the price either im sure when the mossberg 702 came out it was expensive, all new things are. Ven Kaeo you dont want to 'waste' $600 one thats ok, we dont care.
