IMI Uzi Model-A Select Fire SMG With Wooden Stock
Bbl. 10.2″. An IMI Model A Uzi, converted to select fire. Open bolt, blowback design. The original platform was available in several calibers, but the vast majority were offered in 9mm Parabellum. Open bolt, select fire mechanism that is light years ahead of its technology when it comes to use. The Uzi bbl. only appears to be a couple inches in length which greatly minimizes its signature for use in tight quarters, but because of the ingenious design it actually extends back inside of the bolt giving the operator over 10 inches of rifled bbl. to increase hit probability immensely. Those that are familiar w/ the 1911 family of firearms will appreciate the grip safety integrated into the mechanism. This particular example has black plastic furniture. Bottom front mounted bayonet lug. Sling swivels on left side of receiver & wooden stock, currently sporting faded tan canvas sling. Elevation adj. protected post front sight. Dual aperture rear sight.
Left side markings “A-F-S” above safety/selector. Left rear receiver markings “UZI / MODEL A / 9mm PARA / IMI-ISRAEL”. Right side receiver markings include S# “SA 35195” w/ earlier markings removed & darkened. MAGS: 22 Total including 21 steel 25rd. & 1 steel 32 rd.
