hey guys I was surfing the want to sale thread page today and in one ad a guy mentions that UMP parts used to do to USC to UMP conversions are running out. He stated that UMP stocks are getting rare. Is there any truth to this? I thought these parts were very plentyful. I am planning on eventually doing a UMP conversion but I have too many other projects on my plate now. Do you think it would be a good idea to go ahead and try to buy the parts I need now and just keep them until I get the funds to do the conversion or will there always be plenty of UMP parts out there? Are they still importing UMP parts? Thanks for the help.

That was most likely me and yes they starting to run out.

With the new influx of black HK USC's everyones building HK UMP conversions. I had a HELL of a time tracking down some of the parts I needed. I mean, it wasnt that I couldnt find them but normal sources like Gordon Miller etc, were out of some of them.

I ended up having to pay $50+ more for a couple of the parts then normal because all the cheapest sources are running out first.

:(

really all thats needed is the folder, lower and mags.....right?

but typical HK......parts do run out for awhile then show back up, enough UMP's out there I think parts will be around for quite sometime.

and yes that was you ;)

It's more HK is slow to ship parts over, lots of suppliers have been waiting on parts for a LONG time ;) I've got a running shopping list going :D

I cannot tell you with certainty if they are running out or not. However what I can confirm is that pricing with anything HK (for their long guns) is streaky and tends to be pretty volatile. When everyone is waiting for parts they are jacked up and when the resupply order comes in the prices drop quickly. The problem is no one has good information on when the shipments are actually going to arrive, just when they are supposed to arrive.

Gordon Miller and Phil Flack are both out of stocks, seems like lowers and mags are readily available. The stocks are out there but a bit more expensive ($175)
I remember not too long ago there was a shortage of lowers, now they are everywhere.
I think (hope) this will pass as well.

Yeah more will come, its just right now some of the stock is running low and as said above, HK is slow as hell to ship.

The influx of black USC's will help keep the prices high for what are out there too.
