The thread title sort of covers things.

I want to make a fake UZI to hang on the wall of my office. Like get a skanky old parts kit somewhere and a dummy receiver.

Or get the dummy receiver and whatever smattering of parts it needs separately.

Check out some of the old 80's squirt guns.

No joke.

I have a UZI pistol squirt gun and other then the fill plug & clear squirt trigger it's a 1:1 match to my AA pistol.

This one needs a stock, trigger, charging knob, and a chunk of mag for the grip.

Paint it high gloss black like the IMI and done.

Not mine & don't know the seller.

But about the cheapest way to make a wall hanger.
Along with the other ideas posted.
Kits are pushing 400 & up kinda expensive to just hang on the wall.

So anything mostly built or 3d printed is gonna save on extra parts purchased.

Best airsoft UZI replica. You can put RS stuff like wood stock, foregrips, barrel nut, top cover.

My house is paid off, my kids' colleges are paid off, and my retirement account is fully juiced.

All paid for by me working like a dog, scrimping and saving since I was 15 years old. And driving geriatric cars.

Now it's time to be a playah, my homeslice.

That looks pretty darn good.

Kind of pricey. I wonder if I would just buy the shell.

My dad was in the Army Security Agency in the 1950s. He was assigned to a compound in Berlin.

He said that you could buy a Grease Gun SMG at the PX for $3.

He said that he always did this because he didn't want to have to clean his Garand.

So he just kept buying new greasers for $3 when his old one got dirty or rusty. He'd throw the old one in the trash.

It's kind of funny how much energy we have to put into preserving these sheet metal wonders, isn't it?

Creating a dummy display receiver for an Uzi is a relatively straightforward process, but it does require some basic tools and materials. Here's a simple guide to help you get started:
Materials:

Sheet metal (aluminum or steel)
Metal cutting tools (angle grinder, metal saw, or tin snips)
Measuring tools (ruler, tape measure, calipers)
Welding equipment (optional)

Steps:

Measure the dimensions of an Uzi receiver to use as a reference for your dummy receiver.
Cut the sheet metal to the appropriate size and shape based on your measurements.
Bend the metal to match the contours of the Uzi receiver using a brake or by hand.
If desired, you can weld the seams to make the receiver more robust and visually appealing.
Sand and paint the receiver to give it a finished look.
