For: Umarex H&K UMP .45 Elite AEG Airsoft Gun By ARESProduct Information:
I bought this gun during the holiday sale. it's a nice looking gun in general and made of a nice polymer. the gun has some weight to it too. i am not sure if it is, but it feels heavier than my metal cybergun AK. I appreciate that the gun comes with metal rails.
I'll have to agree with the previous review that the battery door mechanism is a very bad design. there's a little pin that locks the door that you have to push in to open, but when you do, it flies out. there's some sort of spring mechanism underneath it that shoots it out because it's not attached with glue or anything. this pin is very small so you can lose it easily if you are not careful.
The selector switch is not the greatest, but i do hear audible clicks for all 3 settings (safe, semi, full auto).
my biggest peeve is the plastic orange tip. it's not a plastic cap over a metal barrel tip, the whole thing is plastic. from the picture online, it might appear to be metal due to the shine, but it is not. hopefully there is some way to replace this piece.
i have not played with it yet so i cannot comment on it's performance. i wanted to get this gun due to it's small profile for cqb. i'll update after i play with it.
folding stock is nicely done
trademarks are a nice touch
stupid plastic tip
battery door latch mechanism
you can see a seem running over the top of the gun. not a fan of looking at it.
