Say UZI and everybody knows exactly what you mean. Designed in Israel, this gun is known for its high degree of reliability and is symbolic of the on-going struggle for survival of that small nation. Named for its inventor, the UZI is an interestingly designed 9mm SMG with many practical features that others have since copied. You will enjoy getting to know this gun inside and out. Master Armorer, John Bush, demonstrates the complete design and function of the gun along with complete disassembly and reassembly down to the smallest parts. Rare accessories are shown along with trouble shooting and repair. In addition, a visit to the range for some full auto fun! When you finish watching this video course, you too, will be an expert on the UZI Submachine Gun.
