Anyways I finally made another replica while the XM8 is waiting to be finished. I always planned on making a UMP but never got to it until now. I figured I had to keep up with trauts. I guess you could call this the Tommy equivalent. I'm not completely finished yet as I ran out of green rods.
It features a bottom rail for a fore handle attachment and a top rail for custom sights. My favorite part though is the slanted, removable magazine for grey connectors. You can preload magazines to make reloading the gun fast. Then you just push in and pull back out a part on the gun to unlock the magazine. Sorry it doesn't have a folding stock and I don't have plans for making one. Someone else could try.
Alrighty I grabbed a couple pictures quickly. It's not finished yet but how is it so far? I'm going to add a better handle and fix up the stock along with giving it a proper rear sight and lengthening the magazine. Check the simple removable magazine. Nothing complex just fitting pieces together in such a way that worked perfectly for the situation.
Edit: Mkay I took a picture of the updated version. All of the updates include an extended magazine, slightly changed muzzle to give it a more rounder appearance, new sites (utilizes mini knex for precision), a fake charging handle, full stock, and finally a new handle and trigger guard. I still don't care for them so I'll change them before it's posted. It turns out that I'm not half bad at making stocks after all lol.
