I have no personal experience with the GSG 5 but I do own a Ruger Standard 10/22 Magnum...
Now I'm a big Ruger fan because the toys you can buy for a 10/22 are limitless! so if I had to pick between the two... well I already told you what I bought...
Now the only problem I've had with an auto loading .22 came with cheap soft lead rounds (No copper jacket) When chambering... the bottom side of the bullets was being shaved off... had some wild flyer's ...took days for me to figure out why... I only bring that up as your ammo can be a big a factor as what weapon you chose... Me I like the extra power of the .22 mag and can still opt for the cheaper .22lr loads

Yes the Ruger 10/22 is the best value. But, nothing looks as cool as an MP-5 clone .22LR. Plus, GSG-5 felt easier to perform some tactical skills than with a 10/22 (stock).
Its all about preference and wallet-size. Can you afford spending twice the cost of a 10/22 for a GSG-5? Which firearm feels best in your hands? Which one has the right accessories you would like to see on the firearm?
I'm just glad we have such a large selection of choices.
