German Sport Guns FIREFLY 22LR (ATI Import)

Recommended Posts

Liked the looks, features, and feel of FIREFLY   when first saw these a year or so ago at $189.99 (that day decided on the GSG 1911 22LR for $239.99).  BTW, you may know GSG made the Mosquito for Sig and Sig gave it up.

Anyway, for a Low Priced Gun Buyer like me to spend the extra $50 for the GSG was a struggle. BTW, I say Low Priced vs saying Cheap cause makes me feel better. LOL Might add the GSG 1911 is a "I LIKE", feels good, shoots good and accurate , basically reliable (a few hiccups now and then). 

Anyway, Smoky Mtn Gun & Ammo sent E Mail (get them near daily) on the FIREFLY for $159.99 with TWO MAGS (normally gun comes with one MAG).  Don't laugh cause it is a Robin Blue Color Slide (only one on sale, at least it ain't Pink).  Actually, I like the look - it's just that it is a bit "girly" looking.

I add U-Tube Reviews are not the best (AMMO SENSITIVE) but it is advertised as needing 22LR HV AMMO (think 1250FPS or over is recommended). It does come with am extra Recoil Spring for lower velocity AMMO (not sure that helps and I have not tried it). 

So far so good, cleaned and lubricated before the first shoot where I ran 4 different AMMOS (Remington Golden Bullet, only had 20 rounds of that, and Remington Thunderbolt, Federal AM Eagle, and Blazer (made by Spear, CCI)).  All worked OK in my mind, but did have three Fail To Fire (one with the Federal three trigger pulls that fired later when I inserted the round rotated to a different angle) and two Remington Thunderbolts (fired on the second trigger pull). 

The gun is single or double action, has a hammer release, slide safety, and easy breakdown lever.  Trigger pull is heavy double (I think advertised as around 11 or 12 lbs and around 7 lbs single action). I am not as accurate with it as the GSG 1911 (say 3 or 4 inch circle at 30 feet). FIREFLY might need a bit of sight adjustment as seem to get a bit left of target (but also get some on target.  BTW, I am not a 1 inch circle shooter at 30 feet, more like 4 inch circle (maybe 3 inch at my best). 

ANYWAY, main thing is so far I am satisfied at $159.99 with two MAGS.

      It appears that Colt is making a new King Cobra model revolver. I saw an ad in Guns & Ammo magazine this past issue. Makes me giddy that they may reissue the Python and my fave...the Anaconda 😁

      I have 3 pistols chanbered in .357 Magum.  I have 3 rifles chambered in .357 Magnum.
      I want a .357 Magnum semi-auto.  I know, I know.  Why not get a 10mm?  Why not get a .40?  Because I reload .357, have a ton of .357 ammo and don't want to introduce another caliber.  I so eagerly want a .357 semi-auto carbine.
      If anyone else is interested in one of these conversions, please contact MechTech today and show your support.  They won't build a conversion unless you ask.  They are already doing conversions for other 1911s.  I want them to build an upper for the Coonan 1911.
       
      Please show your support by contacting MechTech today: https://mechtechsys.com/Contact/tabid/6648/Default.aspx
      After contacting them, please share this post to other gun blogs so the interest can spread.  I don't want to have to pay a gunsmith thousands of dollars to do this conversion for me.
       
      I wasn't quite sure whether to put this post in handguns or long guns forum.  Technically, it's both.
