Interestingly, the most recent 10-year renewal of UFA88 sunsets in December of this year. A new all-plastic gun seems like the perfect basis for renewing the Act.
There's already a push underway to renew it

Even in .22, I can't imagine the rifling will hold up long, and the overall lifespan of the gun probably isn't all that encouraging.
