HK UMP 45 (working) . a wokring UMP 45, with folding stock, detachable Reflex sight and loads more features . well, heres another gun from me, after the long break (i was on holiday in Northumberland (UK), and so was away from any lego :(
anyway, this is another HK rifle, the UMP 45! UMP stands for (the german equivalent of) Universal Machine Pistol, and the gun was designed to be a budget version of the MP5, so you had a choice of quite good and cheap or very good and very expensive.
dont let this background make you think that the real gun is rubbish, though, because even though it is supposed to be a 'cheap' gun, it is a cheap gun by HK standards, so is still an excellent gun.
my gun uses my new mech, the same as in my G36K. in fact, most of the mech is unchanged, as i basically broke the G36 up leaving the stock and the main part of the reciever intact, and then built the gun off that. this meant that the build time was a lot shorter than normal, 1 day instead of 2.
-cocking handle slides forward after cocking
-2 massive 15 brick magazines
-folding stock (locks open and closed) (can also be removed)
-detachable Reflex sight
-backup iron sights
mech: pulling the bolt handle back moves he 'hammer' back, until it squeezes past the top brick in the magazine then gets locked behind it. the cocking handle moves back to the front after being released. then, when the trigger is pulled, the hammer is released, pushing the bullet forward, out of the magazine and into the barrel, where it flies down it and then exits at the end. the nature of the mech means that it is impossible to chamber a round then release the magazine, and then shoot, as the round is chambered when the trigger is pulled. in this respect it is not unlike a gun firing from the open bolt.

stock folded, left side
same, right side
gun with all accessories added (magazine, Reflex sight, and vertical foregrip)
gun with all accessories removed: 2 magazines, a Reflex sight and a vertical foregrip
the tw 15-brick magazines
the feed system allows the hammer to pass by on one side
the Reflex sight
the RIS (Rail Inegration System) that it sits on
the muzzle, fore sight, and cocking handle
aiming through the iron sights
two views of aiming throught the Reflex sight
stock detached. that pin is the centre of the hinge, so when you remove it, the stock just falls off.
FPS no stock, one handed (ie. Terminator style)
FPS with stock, aiming in a way that normal people can hit things (this is a .45, remember!)
the stock hinge
stock lock works same as in the G36K -
press it, and you can...
unlock it when its locked
the handle forward
the fore sight
the 'hammer'. note the slanted side to allow it to squeeze past the brick at the top of the mag
my usual field strip
the cocking handle pulled back. although its seperate from the hammer, i couldnt have it forward while the hammer was back, because the gun would have broken its-self, as the part holding the hammer down is on the removed side.
and one last look at the gun
thats it - tell me what you think!
