I would like opinions regarding the quality comparison of these two MP5 style .22 caliber rifles. Thanks in advance for your input!

I think a lot has to do with cosmetics in this comparison. I've had a GSG-5 for a while and it has worked wonderfully for years. That being said, I know that Umarex generally does a great job on keeping faithful to the originals. You can pick up a GSG-522 with a "conversion" kit for short money from CDNN these days. What happened is HK got their panties in a wad about the fact they weren't making any dough on the GSG clones and made GSG make some cosmetic changes to make it look less like the original MP5. The kits are just the original GSG-5 parts to make them look more "HK Like"...
