We have been publishing the Photo Of The Day articles for years. Our focus is on firearms, sometimes a new product, a classic or one in the hands of soldiers or sports shooters. Sometimes the pictures work just like pieces of art, and today is close and far away from another “black gun”. We have the Heckler & Koch UMP 9mm FX in training color. It’s the perfect gun for any Smurf, or if you happen to be deployed with a UMP and want to train as you fight.

UMP | Three calibres, one solution

With the UMP, Heckler & Koch has developed a versatile submachine gun the likes of which did not exist before on the world market. A weapon that can cover three calibres simply by exchanging a few assemblies: 9 mm x 19, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.

The UMP combines top-rate performance with simple handling and high safety standards. The modular fibre-reinforced polymer receiver guarantees the necessary ruggedness with minimised overall weight. As a typical member of the HK family of weapons, the UMP is a highly-effective, economical alternative for military and law enforcement applications.

Which caliber would be your choice? 9×19 mm, .40 S&W or .45 ACP?
