The UZI sub-machine gun (SMG) was designed and patented by Uziel Gal who, in turn, gave the production rights to the Israeli Ministry of Defense. After initial testing by the IDF, the Ordnance Corps ordered 8,000 units and the love affair with the world’s most iconic pistol continues today. Since 1963, the renowned UZI brand has had sales of over 2 million units worldwide.
The UZI PRO Pistol is the latest evolution of this storied design, featuring the most advanced firearms technologies. Based on the famous UZI SMG, the UZI PRO Pistol is purpose-built, with only one goal - uncompromising performance and reliability on a simple and robust design.
This 9mm Luger Parabellum version for the American public sports an advanced polymer pistol grip that incorporates an integrated magazine release button for fast and easy magazine changes.
Unlike earlier UZI models, the charging handle has been moved from the top of the pistol to the left side of the receiver. This allows the addition of a full length Picatinny rail to the top of the pistol, permitting the use of any optical device that utilizes a Picatinny rail clamp mount. An additional Picatinny rail is incorporated in the polymer lower that allows the use of lights and/or lasers to be mounted directly under the barrel.
Safety is always a primary concern with the UZI brand and the new pistol features three safety mechanisms; a conventional manual safety, a firing pin block and a proven grip safety that must be fully depressed before the gun can be cocked or fired.
Simple maintenance on the UZI PRO Pistol requires no special tools for quick and easy field stripping. The UZI PRO Pistol comes with one 20-round and one 25-round magazine.
Extremely reliable and accurate, the UZI PRO pistol incorporates three safety mechanisms:
• Manual thumb safety
• Grip safety that must be fully depressed before cocking or firing
• Firing pin block
Each UZI PRO pistol is supplied with two magazines, one 20 round and one 25 round in states that permit these magazine capacities. Fully adjustable front and rear sights are standard.
