I recently purchased my first transferable UZI. From the pictures I’ve seen it looks like it has the older style stamped feed ramp. With BWE gone is there anyone out there that can find a feed ramp and install it on a full auto? Or am I shit out of luck and stuck with the older less reliable feed ramp?

If the gun works leave it as is with the feed ramp. If not send me a message or you can google John Andrewski for the new feed ramp install
Thanks man! Do the stamped feed ramp guns feed holllow points? I'd ideally like an uzi that can feed hollow points as my MP5 clones do not super reliably and it frustrates me.

I had Vector put the semi ramp in when they built mine, but I've never tried hollowpoints. But it was still worth the 150 for the upgrade

Yea I emailed them to see if they are still able to do it. I doubt it but let’s see. I’ll try it suppressed and unsuppressed when I get it out of ATF jail and go from there I guess.

If you want to shoot anything other than RN bullets, get the machined feed ramp. Well worth the money spent.

My Group Industries gun with the stamped SMG fees ramp would nose dive FP or HP ammo into the bottom lip of the chamber. No problem with RN bullet profile. I sent it to BWE to have a machined feed ramp installed and now it reliably feeds those types of ammo.

I have the machined feed ramp and I didn't notice it helping to feed bullets all that much.

What really makes a big difference is throating the chamber a little. BIG difference.

On my gun anyway.

You could consider taking your Uzi to a gunsmith who specializes in working with transferable firearms. They may be able to fabricate a new feed ramp for you or modify your existing one to improve reliability.

you can readily buy a solid steel milled feed ramp that replaces the lame mil-spec sheet metal ramp.

pretty straightforward to weld it in

that's all the fabrication you need

what other "modification" is there?

Can you link where you can buy the machined feed ramp? I want to buy one now just in case they become hard to find.

I wouldn't bother. My Vector doesn't like hollow points, but shoots ball ammo all day long without jamming. So I just don't shoot hollow points in it. Why would you want to shoot them? They cost more.

Plus, a lot of these machine gun smiths have ridiculous wait times. Just shoot it like it is.

For me, it’s more a matter of being able to shoot subsonic ammo for suppressor use. It seems the majority of 147 gr. bullets have a FP profile. Yes, there are some subsonic options that use a RN bullet, but they are more limited.

I had Vector put in the Semiauto feed ramp when I got it, years ago.
For me it was to shoot the Swedish Practice ammo reliably and a few other ammos that I came across that were not RN.
Not sure who can do it now.
