I was watching the local news and they were reporting about a woman who had various items stolen from her. She found her items being sold on craigslist. One of the items she later recovered was her camera which the criminals had used to take pictures of items they had stolen to post back up on craigslist. They showed a shot of the digital camera's lcd showing a GSG. Since they had a gun they had to call in the swat to take care of these criminals. I'm somewhat surprised that's all the coverage the gun got, rather than calling it an assault weapon and making it a bigger deal.

Was it a GSG or an MP5 (or clone)?

when it flashed on screen, I thought the magazine looked to be a .22 magazine.

It was airsoft. It looked like a GSG, but had a short barrel and hider.

In other words... it looked like an MP5?

This is why H&K is suing GSG.

Not true.

What then? If their suit isn't related to intellectual property and the brand dilution that results from it, what pray tell is their cause of action?
