The UZI Book




The UZI Submachine Gun EXAMINED



What is often thought of as a single gun called the UZI is actually a variety of models that have been delivered by several manufacturers over the last 60 years. Originally designed for the Israeli military by Uziel Gal, the UZI submachine gun has a colorful history that reached around the globe and continues to this day. Although universally recognized, the history of this iconic weapon has gone largely undocumented - until now!

This book examines the history and technical details of all the UZI variations, both military and civilian, from its initial design to the current models. Nearly 1,000 photographs reveal the amazing history of this firearm, including original factory documents, model-by-model features, prototypes, part variations, accessories and manuals. This detailed review will allow any UZI owner or enthusist to fully appreciate these revolutionary weapons.

Author David Gaboury has spent the last 15 years researching the UZI submachine gun. During that time he's made trips to Israel to see the IMI and IWI production facilities. He's also worked with principle participants from IMI, IWI, Action Arms, Group Industries, Vector Arms, Sturm Ruger, UZI America, and other UZI vendors to bring a firsthand perspective on the history of these firearms. Items from museums, personal collections and Uzi Gal's personal estate give a rare look at historical artifacts that have not been seen before.
