The original GSG 5 was "removed" from the market after H&K sued the manufacturers/importers over perceived patent infringements.
Essentially the same firearm is now back, but called the GSG 522, with some subtle changes. A few folks at my club have the original ones. They are so-so at best.
Personally, if I wanted a dedicated 22 rimfire in a look alike platform, it'd be the S&W M&P AR15 22. Been around a few, they are far more reliable than the GSG, plus they will accept a fair number of actual AR 15 components and disassemble pretty much an actual AR 15.
I would avoid the "Colt" version.
