Uzis

Here are links to all the posts in this series about building a semi-automatic 9mm Uzi carbine from a parts kit so you can find them readily.  I bought two original IMI wood stock Uzi kits from Robert RTG and then assembled the kit using a McKay receiver, McKay closed semi-auto, semi-auto disconnector from US Barrel Shrouds, 16″ barrel, Title II shroud, Picatinny railed cover from US Barrel Shrouds, and Vortex Venom red dot.  The completed Uzi was finished with John Norrell’s Molyresin.

Part of what I enjoy when planning a build is to understand the historical context of a weapon.  I did some digging on Youtube and turned up a couple of decent videos that do just that.

I would recommend David Gaboury’s book – The Uzi Submachine Gun Examined – as it provides the history of the Uzi and has tons of photos, assembly instructions, parts diagrams and so forth.  It doesn’t give everything you need to do a build but it sure does help.

Each post below outlines what I did as well as other reference sources that I used while learning how to do the build:

If you are new to the Uzi and want an operating manual, here is a great copy of the semi-auto IMI Uzi Model B Manual showing how to use and care for the weapon.

If you are curious what the Hebrew characters are on the grip frame, click here.

We thoroughly enjoy this Uzi.  If you’re thinking about building one, I sure recommend it.


If you find this post useful, please either buy something using one of the links to eBay and Amazon.  With Amazon, if you click on one of our links and then buy something else – even unrelated stuff like clothes, electronics and groceries – we get credit and it would be hugely appreciated.  Doing something like the above will help us fund continued development of the blog.

The UZI Submachine Gun Examined (Hardcover)

Although universally recognized, the history of this iconic weapon has gone largely undocumented — until now. Originally designed for the Israeli military by Uziel Gal, the UZI submachine gun has a colorful history that has reached around the globe. Using approximately 1,000 photos, 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. Also included are original factory documents, model-by-model features, part variations, accessories and manuals.
