Really, how can we hwlp you when it appears so ambiguous. I'm not even sure you got your acronyms right, but maybe if you can clear things up a bit, that would help.

Photos are also a plus. You know ..."A picture paints a 1000 words...."

Cheers :TU:

TSD is the brand, and UMP/G is the gun, if you dont have anything helpful to post, then dont post. He worded it just fine.
As for the problem i cant really help you, if your going to buy a AEG though get quality to avoid these problems.
best of luck

Nice try.....
he was pretty much on the mark

I think he means this

You should try and post you problem up in the gun doc section, you'll get more approptiate responses there.

To make your selector click, buy a mp5 or m4 selector switch, and use the spring and nub and install it in your umg selector.
As for your mechbox noises, open it up and check for damage to the cylinder head or piston head. Also if you don't have a bearing spring guide (and have a regular non bearibg spring guide) your gun will sound like ass. That could also be it.

I see.

Thank you for the link, it clears up a lot.

I agree with Boris's remarks on the selector switch- it could be that the spring/nub are worn/damaged, or lost its "springiness. Stretching or replacing the spring and inspecting/replacing the nub may do it.

It could also be the detents in the body. Assuming that it has a metal body, the detents should still be well defined. But you should inspect the detents and make sure they are well defined. You will have to remove the selector switch to do this. Also inspect the track that the nub will follow between the detent positions. Sometimes these get worn into a groove that runs between the detents thus making it seem like there is no positive "Stop" into any given selector position. (this is especially common in plastic bodied guns where the plastic wears down very easily over time)


As for the mechbox noises, it could just need some servicing. “noise” is a very subjective term. Without hearing what that noise is, it would be hard to make a proper analysis as to the cause. If you are mechanically inclined, you should open the mechbox and service the moving parts, inspecting for wear, damage and lubricating appropriately.

UMG's/UMP's have plastic bodies, so once its worn down its hard to make the selector click again.
