...I searched the database for other posts that would list the reason why UMP .45 mag prices have more than doubled, but could not find anything...

What is going on...cheapest I have seen them lately is like $125 to $165...and I need (3) more...LOL!!!

Please advise.

There for a while they were readily available at HK Specialist and HK Parts. I believe more people are starting to do more conversions of the USC and starting to stock pile mags. I know when I did my UMP converison a few years ago I bought about 25 mags to ensure I would always have extras. The parts to do a USC conversion have went up considerably as well. At least 300 more than what I paid for my conversion parts.

Adam has a "Notify me" on his page for them, so I am probably on the bottom of a very long list. I checked "specialist" and did not see them anywhere...

Yeah hang in there, I talked to my source at HK USA, Oberndorf is just behind right now, but a huge order is inbound, save your cash on the high prices, there is no shortage.

Thank you GM. I looked for them on your site but did not see them...did you have them listed and I may have missed them?

I just don't see the need to have a bunch of mags for any firearm unless you're hoarding to sell later. Even then, that doesn't necessarily pay off. Are we that lazy to take a minute to load a magazine after shooting it empty? All of my firearms only have 3 mags each, except my ISSC .22 due to there having been zero mags available anywhere for almost a year. That ridiculous cost there is a good reason I'm probably not going to ever do a full UMP conversion on my USC.

You apparently don't take any training classes. Or like holding up the class between exercises.

Nope, I just shoot for fun. Good point, I didn't know that.
For a recreational shooter, a few 2-3 mags is usually sufficient.

When I go to handgun matches, I generally have 10-15 mags.... depending on gun vs. mag prices there are some people who have spent more in mags than they did in gun.... and don't even think about the ammo costs.

Just picked up an UMP45 mag NIB from an authorized HK Dealer today - the same one that said "you can order as many as you want...they will be here in 3-4 weeks" Check out the price. I should have ordered a dozen when he told me that 4 weeks ago!!! BTW he only had one left, but said I can put an order in for more if I like.


Be patient guys... they are on backorder.
