you bring up a great point. maybe i need to rethink what my gun choice! two mags aren't cutting it!!!!If I could ever find a reasonably-priced UMP 45 mag, I would gladly take my UMP to the SHTF party LOL
Amazing considering when I got all my UMP mags that's what I payed for each including the cost of pinning all of them and all the export paperwork (usually 2-300 dollars) back when I got mine. VERY glad I got 10 of them, was a lot of cash to put down but worth it especially now! The USC mags (yeah the cheesy 10 round single stack ones) are going for 150+ up here now.If you look around you will find them, they are getting spendy though, I sold the last of the new mags I had @ 110.00 shipped last week, I hated to sell at that price but I don't know if I will be getting any more new mags. Time will tell.
i bought 21 mags for 25 and extensions for 35. my ffl had 4 extensions in stock so i bought them all lol...You can get TWO Kriss 27 round mags for under 60 bucks. I wonder if you could get them to work with the UMP
I've tried jamming my Mark23 mags into my UMP lower before to see if I can get it to strip a round off but definitely no dice. The UMP mags feed at a 90 degree angle and the Mark23 mags feed at more of a 110 or 115 degree angle, so even with the mag torqued as far as it can go its still too aggressive a feed angle and it never was able to properly strip a round out.You can get TWO Kriss 27 round mags for under 60 bucks. I wonder if you could get them to work with the UMP
I'd have to disagree on UMP mags being better than Glock mags. Of the 20 some mags we have for our UMPs only 2 are still working (the rest are cracked and or the feedlip sticks at full load) after about 5 years of service. We've never had a Glock mag failure our of about 250+ glock mags that have been in service just as long, most longer.
I haven't gotten the chance to shoot a UMP in full auto, but got to shoot the KRISS in full auto. Grouping is pretty tight. Rate of fire is just off the charts. IMHO it is probably too fast, you just can't believe how quickly the mag will empty................I would love to see a range comparison between the Kriss and USC/UMP with the intended 8" (or whatever the Kriss has) barrel length and see how much different it would be!
