Two semi-automatic versions of the famed UZI sub-machine gun will debut at the 2015 SHOT Show.

There is no mistaking an UZI.

The submachine gun’s boxy lines and snub-nosed barrel are among the most recognizable in the world of firearms. And soon, the iconic gun will be available to US shooters.

Israel Weapons Industries US will debut two semiautomatic versions of the firearm at the 2015 SHOT Show. The UZI PRO and UZI PRO SB might not feature the incredible rate of fire of Uziel Gal’s original creation, but they certainly appear to have plenty to offer shooters.

The UZI PRO and PRO SB each have advanced polymer pistol grips, incorporating integrated magazine releases for fast reloads. The 9mm pistols have cocking handles located on the receiver, allowing for a full-length Picattiny rail on the top of the pistols. And they each have a short rail below the barrel, giving the smallish platform more room for accessories.

There is, however, a big difference between the two models. The PRO is configured in the classic pistol style, while the PRO SB comes outfitted with a stabilizing brace.

The side-folding brace is produced by SB Tactical, the innovators of braces for AR-style pistols and other large-format pistols. There was no length given for the brace, but it appears in pictures equal to the 9.5-inch long UZI pistol.

The blow-back operated pistols have 4.5-inch cold-hammer forged barrels, which are outfitted with 1:10” twist rifling. The PRO and PRO SB are both listed with a weight of 3.66 pounds; it’s a fair guess the SB actually is a bit heavier with its brace.

The pistols have a conventional manual thumb safety, a firing pin block and a grip safety that must be depressed before the gun can be cocked and fired. The guns come with two magazines, one with a 20-round capacity, the other 25 round.

Owning an UZI doesn’t come cheap, even as a semiautomatic variant. But the pistols don’t exactly break the bank either. The UZI PRO has an MSRP of $1,109 and the UZI PRO SB is listed at $1,309.
