Few firearm designs are as recognizable as UZI. The brand is synonymous with submachine guns and is one of the top choices for law enforcement agencies and military forces worldwide. The U.S. consumer market gets a crack at the brand's latest creation with the introduction of the UZI PRO Pistol.
Israel Weapons Industries US, Inc., has announced the arrival of its latest offering to the American consumer market.
The UZI PRO semi-auto pistol is the brand's latest evolution featuring its most advanced firearms technologies. Based on the famous UZI sub-machine gun, the UZI PRO Pistol is chambered for 9mm Luger Parabellum and weights just over 3 pounds.
The pistol also comes with an advanced polymer pistol grip that incorporates an integrated magazine release button for fast and easy magazine changes. The cocking handle is located on the receiver side thus allowing for a full-length Picatinny rail on the top receiver cover. A short Picatinny rail is also mounted below the barrel for additional accessories.
The pistol features three safety mechanisms; a conventional manual safety, a firing pin block and a proven grip safety that must be fully depressed before the gun can be cocked and fired. The UZI PRO Pistol comes with one 20-round and one 25-round magazine and requires no special tools for quick and easy field stripping.
The UZI sub-machine gun was designed and patented by Uziel Gal who gave the production rights to the Israeli Ministry of Defense. After initial testing by the IDF, the Ordnance Corps ordered 8,000 units and the love affair with the world's most iconic pistol continues today.
