  • GSG AK 47 .22LR Test.

    I have wanted an AK 47 clone in .22 LR for a while. After looking at what was available and having experience with other GSG clones, I decided on the GSG AK-47 22.

    I purchased my rifle from Florida Ammo Traders in Tampa. Vic had no problem getting the rifle in but extra magazines are difficult to get. Everywhere we looked they were back ordered.

    I chose the model with black synthetic furniture. The gun comes with a metal trigger lock, a wrench for the thread protector on the threaded barrel, a chamber brush, an orange chamber safety flag, and a screwdriver tool kit with all the bits necessary to maintainand break down the gun. There is a functual cleaning rod mounted under the barrel.

    The gun weighs 6 lbs 14 ounces with an empty magazine. It has an 18 inch barrel with an OAL of 36 and 1/4 inch.

    The gun comes with a side rail for a scope mount. I have not tried it yet but I'm sure it will be like all other AK's. the side mount will be rock solid but puts the scope a little bit high for most shooters. In a .22 I don't see that as a problem.

    The gun comes with an authentic AK style safety. The difference is the safety also holds the bolt open if desired. The bolt automatically locks open on an empty magazine. There is also a magazine safety on the rifle.

    I measured the trigger pull at 8 lbs 5 ounces (5 pull average on my electronic scale). The pull is a bit heavy but it breaks crisp and I think it will get better as it breaks in.

    The magazine that came with mine holds 24 rounds. I put a drop of Slip 2000 in the grooves where the follower rides and the mag operates smoothly with no hangups.

    Accuracy was better than I expected out of a new gun on its first outing. Without touching the sights I was able to take the 10 ring out of my target at 25 yards. The rear sight is a slider just like a real AK with an adjustable front post. A sight adjustment tool comes in the tool kit included with the gun.

    I had no failures of any kind with the rifle shooting both slow and rapid fire. It simply ran like a sewing machine.

    At about $350 it is an expensive plinker. I really enjoyed shooting mine and I expect to put a lot of ammunition through the gun in a short while.

    If you want a gun that shoots inexpensive ammo yet still has a huge cool rating this may be just what your looking for. For a kid that loves military stuff this gun is what dreams are made of.

    So far, I can recommend this rifle. The only drawback I can see is availability of spare magazines. I think this will solve itself. I recently bought 3 new magazines for my GSG P522 and they were made by ProMag. I'm sure the GSG AK 47 mags will be the same way.

    Here is a picture of my new GSG AK-47 22....

            Nice!
            YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

              I had a chance to put three mags through this rifle today, using three different ammos, and I was impressed with the way it shoots. The fit and finish are impressive as well, and I am now quite certain that GSG makes top-notch gear.

                That would be a good one to keep my M&P 15-22 company.
