Discussion relating to the UZI firearms family.
Richard from BWE has provided some tuning instructions for the .22LR conversion kits made by Group Industries, Vector and Subgun Ordnance. Check out the information here:
I am half thinking I might list my model B UZI sometimes nearing NOV ..I have other UZI NFA and otherwise so this is just a extra
All stock no box no paperwork just the gun and the mag
Only weird part is when I got it had a weird non factory comp welded on so had it taken off and the barrel...
I thinking about buying a bolt and have some questions. Over the years I have read about the different types of conversions on the site and due to being so many I was always unsure and went with other MGs. But I'm going to cover what I think is correct and what I'm not sure of.
If I have a...
I picked up this 1/2 case of what I assume is 500rds of 9mm.
The gun shop guy said that its Submachine gun ammo and not to put it in a regular pistol.
I'd like to know what it says and what do you think the year of manufacturer is, since it has 2 dates. Do you think that is the "best by" years.
Have any of you built a UZI Mckay receiver or done a receiver repair section build into a pistol, then added a sig brace or the shockwave blade?
Didn't know if anyone had come across I.W.I.'s web site but they do have some small replacement parts available for the Model A, B, Mini & Micro Uzi.
I just received the Model B rear sight assembly I ordered for my Vector, got it installed...
I searched and nothing came up so here goes.
What red dot do you have mounted on your Uzi?
I ask as I had a Vortex Razor that I was testing and it appears to be too high and not enough elevation adjustment to get the red dot to line up with a laser dropped into the chamber. Probably a...
For a full size UZI SMG, what are the better suppressor options these days? I'm not looking for nor considering a dual use pistol suppressor and I want volume for full-auto fire without excessive heat on bursts. I have pistol and dual use cans now so, this will be a dedicated can for SMG use...
I did an Uzi reweld and made the top cover fit snugly--it clips in the front and you gently push it into the latch at the rear and you're good. I assumed this is how it goes. I haven't shot it yet, but the bolt travels freely and everything seems fine.
I decided the reweld wasn't...
In response to my thread.
Went ahead and measured twice and cut once. Turned out nice. Haven't had a chance for range time yet.
I have a couple questions I should know but do not:
I have had one of these before but got a really good deal on an IMI/AA 45 ACP conversion. It appears to have everything except the striker/firing pin assembly and spring. I believe the recoil spring from the 9mm can be used with the 45 ACP but...
Just curious if anyone on the forum might own or has owned semi Model B UZI serial number SA69930? I bought it new in the 80's and sold it to a gun shop in the 90's. Just curious where it went. I look at serial numbers on GB to see if it ever turns up but never seen it. Thanks for any info out...
I'm hoping to find out a little more about the AA Uzi 9mm/.45 ACP I recently acquired. It is chambered in 9mm, and the serial number is Gxxx (G followed by three digits. The number really has peaked my interest. If anyone has any information regarding this, I'm all ears.
i have a nice BWE 10" barrel and am on the waiting list for a threaded 8" From BWE.....just curious if there is a noticeable gun powder in your face difference with the shorter barrel?
i have not shot my Uzi Suppressed, so i dont know how much blowback it creates....
deciding on waiting for...
Unlike my previous Vector FS, FA, I'd never checked the ROF on this GI conversion IMI, (no slotted bolt), since purchasing it. Neither of the two brands of ammo tested are particularly hot, and I'm sure a rate of fire over 600 would be easy to reach using a different brand of ammo.
$130ish compared to $200 or more.
Can someone tell me where to find a 19.75" IMI UZI mini carbine barrel?
I have searched the internet with no luck. Thanks
When shooting my full size Uzi pistol when getting down to the last 5-10rds out of a 32rd mag the gun wont eject the empty then completely locks up.
I can remove the mag, and the barrel and the bolt will still stay locked up.
Then it will release.
This has happened once a few weeks ago and I...
I have bingled this: found a FA rental range close to PHL, but no UZI. Found a range in W PA with lots of things and an UZI, but the 5 hour drive is a non-starter.
I'll have 1/2 a day to kill Sept 25(afternoon) with some time mid-day on the 26th. The latter I think I'll visit Sarco. Any...
Thanks Richard for an amazing repair job.Fired 6 32 rnd mags as soon as FEDEX left.100% function.Am very pleased with the work done! Anyone have a troublesome UZI send it to Richard Hoffman BWE Firearms,You wont be sorry.
Unfortunately in my state we can't have a legal SBR but I was thinking that maybe I could weld a bayonet to a 10.5 Inch barrel to give it the legal length. Does a bayonet count as a legit barrel extension? Sorry if this has been asked before.
got a top cover w/ a rail and now id like to change the charging handle to the single side cocker style
no one seems to have them in stock
anyone know who has them w/o a waiting list?
i can only find the double sided cockers...not the single side
A few years ago I bought a pristine NIB full auto Vector UZI from a well-known dealer.
After shooting the gun maybe 20 times, the trunnion welds broke and the trunnion pushed forward.
Since it was a Vector, I sent the gun to Vector and requested that the weld be repaired.
Since it was...
I recently acquired a full auto 45 kit that uses grease gun mags. Works flawlessly so far. Only issue is barrel nut backs off about half a turn after each mag. The bolt is not contacting the barrel during fire. Any thoughts ? It has never done this in 9mm. Thanks Lefty
So I have this bolt (pictured). My question, however stupid it may seem to some is since it has the lower lip intact should I use a semi or fa extractor?
