UMP-45 K'NEX gun review

This gun has found its way into the favorites of many members. This review should answer the question: Should I build it?


Power: 10 out of 10 Why? It went through paper at 5 feet, got stuck in cardboard at about 5.
Looks: 9 out of 10 Why? Looks EXACTLY like a UMP-45. Well, with the wire stock, it does.
Ergonomics: 7.5 out of 10 Why? Feels...odd to hold.
Innovative...ness: 9 out of 10 Why? Pretty much everything is new, but...y'know.
Accuracy/Sights: 8.5 out of 10 Why? New sights! They...are...awesome. But, the 'bullet' veers. Oh, WELL.
Magazine: 8.7 out of 10 Why? Well, it's good for the most part. Never ever jams. But if you press directly in on the mag switch(the white rod) it messes it all up. So you have to push down and in. It's also not a very good connection; a few bumps will break it off, turning the magazine into a shotgun shell, loaded with gray shot.
NEW! Rail system: 7.5 out of 10 Why? The connections go AROUND the connectors, not in them. So that makes it kinda flimsy.
Piece consumption: 7.5 out of 10 Why? This doesn't use TOO too(I meant to have 2 toos) many of your pieces, but you might not be able to build anything too big for a little while.
Stocks:(We'll examine BOTH stocks.) WIRE STOCK: 9 out of 10 Why? Looks better, but kinda flimsy. Not REALLY, though. FULL STOCK: 9.5 out of 10 Why? Sacrifices looks for strength.
"Toy" parts(the charging handle was the only one I could really find)7 out of 10 Why? So...FUN!! to just slide back and forth. Pointless, but cool to have. Like a laser cannon.
War Weapon: 9.5 out of 10 Why? Let's just say it'll have 'em beat. If they've already built this, they'll probably run out of sheer terror like bunnies. (?)

Overall: 9.3 out of 10. Why? Do you really need a Why? for this?

Great gun. I recommend it to any H&K(drools) fans, or if you just want something cool.
TheDunkis scores again.

"Power: 10 out of 10 Why? It went through paper at 5 feet." Umm, I find this a bit potethic... The H.A.W.C. of Viccie.B1993 shoots trough a paper at 30 feet.
I think its proportional to the amount of knex and the size of the gun.

Well...Does that have a magazine? Does that use a ram?
Hey just wondering would you be willing to review my assault pistol (will be posted on KA) when it's out? It uses a removable open magazine for dark greys with greens and gets a lot more power than the UMP did.

Sure. Do you mean KI? Not KA?
No I I have my own site named K'nexables (KA) and, to increase membership, a few members and I are posting our projects there exclusively.
DrWeird117 (author)  TheDunkis8 years ago
Okay. I'll do that.
Awesome thanks. I'll probably have it posted next weekend. I just gotta fix up the magazine so that it's still easy to remove but won't pop our from the force of the mag pusher.

I can't find it!
It's dead.
