I have a very good question- I am trying to get a straight answer outta this.

I personally like the GSG-5 and would be inclined to try to get a new in box GSG 5 on GunBroker if I got one but I guess I could deal with the GSG 522. (I really really want a PK but NJ is such a pain with the application to get pistol purchase permits etc.). Anyway.

I am wondering: is it true you can easily remove the stock on the GSG and install an "end cap" with the sling swivel on it? Someone told me its easy,you just unscrew the stock and screw the end cap on, it has the swivel attached. Also was told the actual end cap is cheap like $20 bucks.

See I wouldn't buy the HK one because of that stock, the collapsing MP5 one- i hate the way it looks and imagine I would hate the way it feels/shoots even more. Also collapsing stocks of any/all kind are illegal in Jersey so not a chance anyway.

But I love MP5s with the full stock, I have shot them twice in Vegas, amazing. But woud LOVE the capability of putting that sling connection end cap on .

So what is the truth, it can be done and the parts are out there or not? Thnaks much.

Did you do the screw upgrade on it? If not from everyting I read it seems like a good idea. I did my GSG-5P and it was not that hard. Just pulled up how to on you tube. But better screws less likely to have problems with the factory soft screws breaking and causing problems.

Is that the B&T stock? Looks nice, I have been wanting to SBR mine bad but hard to justify the $200 to the ATF just to do it. I have just been using a single point sling.

Rimfire Forum

It is a nice host for my suppressor and just a FUN gun to shoot.

Irish Bum Plz tell me about that. What model do you have ? Also how about that end cap and sling mounting piece? Could I get the GSG5/5SD and use that end cap nd sling in place of the stock sometimes ?

Endcap is factory sling mount is on there,you can see in link above

On this I would say no I'm not sure but assume overall length would be under the 26 in mark
I also ordered this screw upgrade after reading about factory screw breaking inside the gun and cracking the bolt. I figured for $15 bucks it was cheap insurance. Looks a little complicated in the pics but really not that bad.

Also in the link above is everything and anything GSG related you could want. If there is anything I missed or anything else you want to know let me know I am more than happy to help.

I've been reading pros and cons about the screw "upgrade" some say its needed and some say just to loctite the originals and that the nut in the upgrade kit is useless because the housing is threaded to begin with. IDK i ordered the pin kit and buffer, while i'm in there i think i'll just loctite everything for now.

Oh yeah I did it cause my at first I was gonna SBR it and if I put that much $ into I figured go a head and get it. I also did the pin kit and buffer. I'm sure loc-tite will work just fine. I do like the look of your though.

Display purposes only. I de-neutered it and need to get a full size spring from ATI to turn it back into a standard capacity mag. Good eyes though.

When I got mine it had the same mag and saved me $50 bucks off for complaining about them being 10 rounders after the guys sd they were the 22 rounders "he thought". I told him bet ya $50 bucks he can't put 22 rounds in there. His response was "how bout I drop the price $50 bucks". They also had it marked at $695 I ended up paying $450. A little more than I wanted but by the time I pay FFL transfer I figured screw it just pay $450. Also the reason gun shop guy said it was marked $695 was cuz its "pre lawsuit"

I pryed out the little plastic pieces and my mags have been flawless without changing the spring if it makes a difference to you.

It is also 1 heck of a supressor host its quiet and a ton of fun, I want to put a stock on SO bad, but those darn other buys keep get'n in the way

No need to get a new spring...Here's the mod that I had done to a few of the 15-rounders that I had found (cause there was a shortage of full mags).

15-round mag into 24-round mag

I got fed up with not being able to find any 22-round mags for my PK. So I purchased a 15-round mag at the range the other day. They had about 9 of them there. After reviewing the mag, I came up with an idea. I modded it to take 24 rounds. That's right, 24 rounds!

DISCLAIMER. Check you own State's law before proceeding. Mod at your own risk. I'm not responsible for your action or decision.

You'll need:
One (1) 15-round mag.
The GSG tool that came with your riffle/pistol.
A 9/64 drill bit and an electric drill.
A Dremel cutting bit that looks like a drill bit. And a Dremel. If you don't have this, might be able to work with drill bit.

I can't find my camera cord, so I'll post picts tomorrow.

Here are the steps:
1) Take off the 2 screws on the top of the mag. And the 2 screws on the bottom of the mag's base. And lastly, the hex bolt on the follower.

2) Carefully pry the two halves apart. The lower spring base, not the cap, is slightly epoxy to the stopper piece and also to one of the mag's side.

Rimfire Forum


3) Once apart, you can pry off one of the stopper that's on the rail of the mag.

4) Use the 9/64 drill bit to drill out the other pin of the stopper to the lower spring base. You'll only need to drill out one of the two pins, since only one is epoxy to the lower spring base. Use the drill bit to punch out the other pin to the base. Now take off the stopper on that rail, and the lower spring base.

Rimfire Forum


5) The epoxy might have spilled onto the rail of the mag, so this is where the Dremel comes in. Just use it to smooth out the rail so the follower will slide smoothly up and down the mag. Make sure you clean out any plastic pieces that might come from the Dremeling.

6) Apply some grease, if need to, and assemble the mag back together. Leave the lower spring base out, and use use the base cap. There are two small posts on the cap to help keep the spring in place.

7) Now load up 24 rounds of .22LR. Have fun!!!

Maybe we've got different mags then, 'cause there's no way the spring I have will provide enough tension to feed more than about 10 rounds.

And yes, they do make great suppressor hosts.

First gen mags from the first gen GSG. They might have changed it on Gen 2. Haven't followed it closely, since I had sold my Gen 1.
