    Double Eagle UMP

    Real-steel history: The Heckler & Koch UMP (short for "Universale Maschinenpistole") is a submachine gun chambered in .45 ACP, and is developed as a cheaper, lighter variant for the Heckler & Koch (later HK) MP5. Boasting more stopping power because of the larger caliber, and a slower cyclic rate to keep things in balance (.45 kicks a lot compared to 9 mm), the UMP is favoured by US Customs and Border Patrol. Airsoft-variant history: The first airsoft UMP I was introduced was the Guay & Guay (later G&G) UMG (short for "Uber Machinegun, lol), back in 2008 (if my memory works correctly). It was a really good SMG overall, there were some major issues first but G&G fixed them in later versions. I absolutely adored it, even though the name was silly (for licensing reasons, obviously). Is it strange, that HK allows manufacturers to copy the design 1:1, but it buggers them off real bad if the same manufacturer uses the correct name? I have always found that strange. Be that as it may, not long after the G&G UMP-replica was released, Chinese manufacturer Double Eagle (later DE) rushed to copy it. Naming it plainly as the M86 (which is the standard procedure with DE:s guns, I have the M6 which is a copy of the Maruzen APS-2, the M58 which is a copy of the Marui Benelli M3 Shorty and the M81 which is a copy of the Marui USP AEP but more tactical), it is the only airsoft-UMP I have experience with besides the G&G-variant. There is an Umarex UMP as well, and it boasts real trademarks (which it legally can, because Umarex has an agreement with HK). I don't own that one, but since the price is exactly the same as DE:s gun, I wonder if it's just a rebranded DE (I know for sure Umarex rebrands a lot of stuff, for example Vega Force Company's and Kien Well Company's guns). Initial impressions: I have owned the DE UMP for some time now, but I remember when picking it out of the box I was really surprised by a lot of stuff. Here's a list: -The gun felt rock solid, like a plastic brick (which it should be, actually, because the real-steel counterpart has a polymer receiver!) -The folding stock is really sturdy (I have managed to break numerous AK folding stocks, from all the manufacturers out there, this one, not so much!) -With a 7,4 volt LiPo-battery the fire rate is close to the real gun, which means it's sloow! -I got the urge to go and play some Counter Strike and rush B! Problems arise: The fire selector of my gun broke off on one side (it's supposed to be ambidexterous, but now, forget it), and the remaining selector on the guns left side jumps from full auto to semi auto because the gun vibrates a lot when shooting. I have to keep it pressed downwards with my thumb if I want to use full auto for prolonged periods of time. Well, this isn't an issue, because I only play at CQB-arenas which have banned the use of full auto anyways, so it doesn't bother me much. A problem still. Another problem, this one more severe. The cocking handle jammed mysteriously, and it is locked now in front position (no HK slap for me). I have absolutely no idea what causes this. If I open it up someday, then I'll see. One more problem. One of the metal rails it has (the lower-one), broke down on mine. Crappy pot-metal, I'm sure. The other rails have survived the test of time, but I removed them as well (it's now even lighter and more streamlined). Conclusion: It's a good replica of the famous UMP SMG, and it uses a normal Version 3 gearbox so upgrading/maintenance isn't an issue. Good bang for the buck, if one can't afford the more high-end G&G-one. I have painted my own with camouflage-colors and done some minor modding, like for example replaced the Tamiya-connector it comes with to a better Deans-one.

    AGM StG 44, stock has been redone with coloured lacquer and battery compartment has been drilled larger to house a 9,6v stick -battery. Also some scritch scratch on the metal parts, and a repro Kar 98k -sling on the way.

    Galaxy Barrett M82

    The Galaxy G31(D) is a new cheap Barrett that is a welcome change in this class of rifles. It's almost all plastic (the only metal part being the barrel), really lightweight and easily manouverable. It shoots 120 m/s out of the box, and uses internals that of an A&K SVD (or so I inspected). The co2 conversion for that gun should fit in here. The humongous beast only weights that of a MP5, just 3 kilos. You can actually use this Barrett effectively in a skirmish, it's just as easy to carry around than, let's say, a VSR-10. The barrell goes off by taking one screw off and then twisting counter clockwise and pulling. You beed to do this to adjust the hop up. I set the hop for 0,28 gram bb's, and it shoots surprisingly far and is pretty accurate. The magazine is huge but only takes in 25 bb's. There's an empty space for reserve bb stash or co2 capsules in case you need them. The manual also points this out. Even though the gun is plasticky and light, it's sturdy and won't squek or wobble one inch. The cocking lever ain't stiff and hard to pull like that of an spring SVD, it's really easy to use. Just over a 100 bucks this is a steal. A truly epic spring rifle by Galaxy, bravo!

    I bought a tactical light on the rail in the end of the gun, and a sling with shell-holders (filled with Marui shells, which don't go in this gun but look cute as buttons). This is now well over a thousand euros gun.

    True, but I already run mine on a regular large type -battery. The lipo must be extremely small to fit in the battery compartnment (it's pathetic how tiny it is, really).

    I decided to do a little paintjobs to the drum magazine and red dot -sight. Since all my other accessories on this gun are Olive in color, I thought it would look cool if the rest were too. First I applied masking tape to areas I didn't want any paint to go: Then I applied the first coat of paint, and let it dry for a couple of mins. Then second, third and fourth (many thin layers evenly): Then after the parts were dry I removed the masking tape and assembled all the little unpainted parts back together: The Olive is somewhat darker in reality, my phone's camera brightens everything up.
