1) Looked at the rail on the GSG-522 and it looked plastic...would that mout an Eotech and hold zero?

2) Anyone make a 1:9 twist barrel for this? Want to shoot SSS rounds, thanks.

If the rail is a glass reinforced nylon it should be pretty sturdy and stiff. The Rifle of the Year (MP-15/22) is mostly that material outer. You should be able to tell if its GRN or a lesser plastic just by the feel. I'd have confidence in GRN rails.

I'd really like to hear some feedback from people who have used it, thanks.

I always thought it was metal, until I double checked right now, and it is plastic. LOL. I have a red dot (cheapie) and seems good. You should be fine with it, as far as a 1:9 twist barrel - no clue.
