So, H&K filed suit against American Tactical Imports over the GSG-5, a .22 LR clone of the MP-5. The suit has now been settled. The results are the GSG-5 will no longer be produced, and remaining inventories of them must be sold off by Jan 31, 2010.
So, if you were ever thinking about getting a GSG-5, now is the time. I imagine they will be gone quickly.
We are very pleased to report that the litigation filed by Heckler & Koch, Inc. against German Sport Guns GmbH and its U.S. distributor, American Tactical Imports, Inc., together with all counterclaims, has been settled.
The terms of the settlement are confidential to the parties and cannot be disclosed. A dismissal of the above-referenced litigation, and all of the party’s claims against each other, is expected to be filed in the near future.
Attorneys for H&K will be issuing a statement. The attorneys for ATI have already issued a statement announcing the settlement.
Production and importation of the original design GSG-5 ceased as of Oct, 8, 2009 with the signing of the agreement. The remaining inventory now in the USA can be sold by ATI, all distributors and dealers. ATI currently has GSG-5′s in stock.
All sales of the GSG-5 by ATI must conclude by January 31, 2010. ATI will continue to service every firearm that it imports into the USA.
Thank you for your support.
American Tactical Imports, Inc.
