Review: After opening my mail, i saw my new UMP Mag for my A-5. It took about 5 minutes to install. It looks great on the marker, very realistic SMG look on the A-5.

I found a few problems with the UMP Mag.
- Because i have a stock, it is not possible to field strip the A-5 to take the grip off. You must either take off your stock or the Mag in order remove the grip to access it for maintenance i.e, battery change.(I have an e-grip)

-The Mag is quite long so your A-5 will not fit in a standard marker bag.

- I have the Long A-5 Lapco Foregrip, but i have really big/thick hands, so my hand rubs against the mag which is somewhat uncomfortable, even with the grip moved forward. I recommend using gloves, its more comfortable if your have big hands like me that rub against the corner of the Mag, however its quite snug but i don't mind.

Its basically for show, and adds weight to you A-5.

My review looks pretty negative, however even with these hick-ups I have encountered I still do not regret buying this Mag. The MP5 Mag will give you more room with the Foregrip if you have bigger hands but I prefer the look of the UMP one.

Conclusion: If you want the SMG look, get this Mag is looks freaking awesome. I don't regret buying it. But because of the few hiccups i encountered and its non practical use i rate it a 7.5
