    What do you all think about the IMI uzi pistols (semi auto micros)?

    Iíve recently developed an interest in these, even though Iíve never handled one.
    How well are they regarded?
    Do they have any known issues?
    What would you consider a good price in the current market?

    I think most people consider them a novelty. I picked up an unfired one some years back to go along with my model B carbine. I got it for a good price, $600 if I recall correctly. They go for a lot more today. It's not very practical but it is very well made. Though fairly useless it has a cool 80's vibe and I like it. Not everything has to have a purpose, liking something is reason enough. I recently picked up an Uzi Pro pistol with the factory arm brace and was pleasantly surprised. They don't seem to be very popular here on Uzi Talk so I'm in the minority for liking it. It has rails to mount optics and laser/lights and folds up to 11 inches. It's so small I'm making a go bag around it. Nice thing about these is that you can get the Uzi Pro pistol with arm brace for $1200 or so if you look a little, quite a bit less than the original Uzi pistol. Maybe something to consider.

    Thanks for the reply.
    “Cool 80s vibe” is exactly what has me interested in the originals.
    It wouldn’t be my first impractical purchase, but I wouldn’t want to buy something that didn’t actually work.

    If you are looking for a cool 80's gun to just have fun at the range with then I think you will like it. Unlike some other similar guns of that era it's very high quality so you are not going to have to worry about wearing it out by shooting it to much. I get a kick seeing the Uzi Pistol showing up in old episodes of The A-Team, they look cool firing them but they don't seem to hit much. Oh well, still a fun show.

    Uzi Pro seems like a deal, but sadly lacks the classic aesthetics of the originals. It's also expensive and "impractical" when compared to AR, AK and even Scorpion 9mm Pistols and Carbines.

    Btw, IMI recently discontinued the Uzi pro pistol (at least for US market)
    Oddly, they are still selling it as a postie SMG

    Or is there more to the build?

    I think they’re still doing them but now with threaded barrels. https://iwi.us/product-category/firearms/uzi-pro/

    Yep. Old lower on an Uzi Pro upper.

    Not entirely true. IWI still sells the UZI Pro but with arm brace and threaded barrel ONLY.

    I have both a Micro pistol and an Uzi Pro. As stated above, the Micro Uzi pistol is fun just to have, but you'd be at a severe disadvantage using it in some sort of a defensive situation. The Uzi Pro is significantly better. In fact, I'll be SBR'ing mine as soon as I can find a US made tri-lug or threaded barrel for it.
