UZI Submachine Gun (Not Currently in Production)
The Uzi submachine gun is one of the best known of the post WWII sub
guns. Designed by Uziel Gal, an officer in the Israeli Army the Uzi is
quite similar to the Czech ZK 476. The Uzi has been manufactured by at
least several countries, has fought wars and battles, been featured on
the news (prominently wielded by Secret Service during Reagan
assassination attempt) and been in countless war movies to the extent
that is has become an icon.
The Uzi would never have achieved this if
were not a good gun. It uses modern manufacturing techniques - pressed
steel, investment castings, and injection molded plastic, with a minimum
of expensive machining. The Uzi also features a grip safety, easy
reloading with the magazine going into the grip like an automatic
pistol, a compact design popular with vehicle and paratroops, and is
very reliable and easy to control when fired. The gun has two stocks - a
wooden stock and an ingenious rigid folding stock that is better than
The Uzi receiver is a formed/pressed
steel "U" shaped housing with machined or investment cast parts welded
to it to finish it. The bayonet lug, threaded barrel housing, feed ramp
and trigger housing mounting lug are all separate parts welded to the
Our receiver is machined from a solid bar
of steel. All of the external contouring is exactly duplicated, and the
parts that would otherwise be welded on, are machined out of the
bar and are an integral part of the receiver. So to work with our
receiver requires no grinding/filing/removing of these parts from pieces
of a torched receiver, and the necessity of welding them to a housing.
Note also that the ATF considers a raw formed housing a firearm, even
without the pieces welded on, and requires them to be serial numbered
and they can be sold to Federal Firearms Dealers only. Our receiver is
certified by the ATF as a non-firearm and can be ordered direct.

It is not legal to finish this receiver into a machine gun
without the proper license. You can make a non-firearm (DEWAT, blank gun). You do not need
to be a licensed manufacturer to make a legal type (semi-auto, single shot) firearm for
your own use as long as it is not for resale. Contact ATF for guidelines on the
manufacture of legal semi-auto rifles or blank fining devices.
