    Magazine gauge

    Does anyone make a lip gauge for Uzi mags? I have recently developed some feeding issues and a couple of my magazines are suspect

    You mean the dimensions? I have a caliper I can give you measurements on one of my good mags.

    I can measure my good ones as well but sometimes linear dimensions do not tell the whole story. There are gauges and/or repair tools available for both Sten and Thompson mags but I've never seen any for the UZI.

    Honestly I bought bulk uzi mags, they are plentiful and cheap. I load them up and go to the range, the ones that don't work right get a piece of red electrical tape on them
    and the ones that work good get a piece of blue, I can work on a thousand types of guns and get them working but mags are a horror story all their own.

    I've bought a few used Uzi mags that came with bent lips. They must have been dropped when full on to a concrete floor. Mil spec Uzi mag lips are hard to bend. What I've done is compare the bent lips to known good mags and bend accordingly as best I could.
    MHO, YMMV, etc. Best of luck.

    are UZI feed lips that flimsy? where a sight bump on them puts it in the scrap metal pile. or do you have a aftermarket mag?

    To answer your question, No, genuine IMI magagines are not that filmsy.
