Overview

The UZI Submachine gun (officially titled UZI) is a family of Israeli 9 x 19mm, open bolt, blowback operated submachine guns. Smaller variants followed on from the success of the original, the first of which was the Mini UZI.

Also chambered for 9x19mm, the Mini UZI is a smaller version of the regular UZI and was introduced in 1980, it is 600 mm long (23.62 inches) long or 360mm (14.17 inches) long with the metal stock folded. With its short barrel it has en effective range of 100 m and with a lighter bolt, the rate of fire is 950 rounds per minute.

The Micro-UZI is an even further scaled down version of the UZI and introduced in 1986. Still chambered for 9x19mm, length overall is 486 mm long reducing to 282 mm with the stock folded. The even lighter bolt gives the Micro a rate of fire is 1,200 rpm.

Foxtrot example shown is the Mini UZI chambered for 9 x 19mm, fitted with black polymer grips and forend, metal folding stock and all metal parts are in a military phosphate finish.

Film Set Notes

UZIs are reliable, actor friendly, very useable in confined spaces and with their short barrels and high rates of fire, both give an excellent flash, particularly the Micro.
