Original Israeli Six-Day War Era UZI Display Submachine Gun by IMI with Wood Stock and Magazine - Serial 075242
Original Item: Only One Available. The Uzi is an open bolt, blowback-operated submachine gun. Smaller variants are considered to be machine pistols. The Uzi was one of the first weapons to use a telescoping bolt design which allows for the magazine to be housed in the pistol grip for a shorter weapon, a design not seen since the Japanese Type II machine pistol.
The first Uzi submachine gun was designed by Major Uziel Gal in the late 1940s. The prototype was finished in 1950; first introduced to IDF special forces in 1954, the weapon was placed into general issue two years later. The Uzi has found use as a personal defense weapon by rear-echelon troops, officers, artillery troops and tankers, as well as a front line weapon by elite light infantry assault forces.
The Uzi has been exported to over 90 countries. Over its service lifetime, it has been manufactured by Israel Military Industries, FN Herstal, and other manufacturers. From the 1960s through the 1980s, Uzi submachine guns were sold to more military and police markets than any other submachine gun ever made.
IMA is proud to offer this original IMI manufactured UZI display gun constructed of original parts built into non-firing Dummy gun on our all steel BATF approved new made non-firing dummy receiver. The ends of the receiver are original but the center 8 inches are totally newly manufactured.
The original markings are still present on the receiver rear:
Usually these come with a simple IMI logo in an oval, but this example has the old style logo, which shows a mechanical gear with a sword overlaid, along with a tree branch wrapped around it to the side. The logo is quite faint, and honestly we did not recognize it at first. Under the serial number are two hebrew letters, however we have not been able to determine their significance.
The display gun comes complete with wood shoulder stock and magazine, which will be deactivated where required. The shoulder stock still slides off relatively easily when the release button is pressed inward.
This is an impressive ready to display SMG of one of the best known weapons from the second half of the 20th Century. Ready to display!
