    The UMP (Universale Maschinenpistole, German for "Universal Submachine Gun") is a submachine gun developed and manufactured by Heckler & Koch.

    Design details

    The UMP is a blowback-operated select-fire submachine gun that fires from a closed bolt. It features a polymer stock that can be folded for compactness, a paddle-style magazine release and a handguard that is able to accept accessories such as vertical foregrips. The barrel is approximately 8 inches long, and there may be rails on top of the receiver to mount optics.

    The UMP45 has a cyclic rate of 600 RPM; the UMP40 and UMP9 have a cyclic rate 650 RPM. This was done to help counteract the effect of recoil when firing.

    The selector switch features three modes of fire: SAFE, SEMI, and AUTO.


    The USC (Universal Self-loading Carbine) is the Title 1 version of the UMP. It features a thumbhole grip instead of the UMP’s pistol grip and a longer barrel (16 inches). It is semi-automatic only.
