NON-UK SALES ONLY OR RE-DEACTIVATION TO CURRENT DEACTIVATION SPECIFICATION - PLEASE CONTACT US FOR FURTHER DETAILS. This is along with the AK47 is probably the gun that everyone recognises and knows something about. Designed in the late 1940’s and first accepted for service use in 1951. Most sources suggest that the Uzi was inspired by the Czech SA23 SMG and the similarities are there; specifically, the magazine housed in the pistol grip and the wrap-around bolt designed to shorten the weapon. The Uzi has found use all over the world and has proved itself to be a highly reliable and robust weapon. This oriniginal IMI produced example comes complete with one (25 round) magazine, a 32 round magazine shell (chopped off at the top and without spring and follower), wooden stock (detachable) and 5 inert 9mm rounds. Post 1995 UK deactivation with moving cocking handle (under spring pressure) and a removable magazine.
