Mini UZI, with shoulder stock folded

Extensive world-wide use of the Uzi submachine gun has assured it a place, perhaps even of reverence, in the annals of small arms history. Indeed, this gun bearing its inventor`s nickname has during its career thus far seen service in one capacity or another with almost everyone`s military or police forces. Even the prestigious U.S. Secret Service utilizes it to guard government officials, including the President of the United States.
Yet, nothing is so perfect that cannot bear improvement. In the mid 1980`s IMI (Now: IWI) presented the new member of the Uzi family the Mini Uzi. Few years later after gaining considerable combat reputation it was offered globally.

The standard Uzi folding stock leaves a great deal to be desired in that consistent, comfortable stock-welds are a virtual impossibility, a problem the fixed-stock versions do not share. But to obtain decent sighting at speed, one has up to now been forced to accept the increased length and bulk of the fixed-stock gun. When you are crammed into an armored personnel carrier or aircraft with a full complement of men and personal equipment, this becomes a major headache! The new Mini Uzi solves the problem by providing decreased bulk and length without sacrificing the superiority of the old fixed buttstock.

Unique to the Mini Uzi are a front sight that uses a spring-detent and ratchet assembly to allow adjustment instead of the threaded post with lock-ring prevalent on the standard model. Also present is an adjustable rear sight that uses the same improved (read simpler, smaller and flatter) adjustment tool as the front sight instead of a bulkier front sight tool and a screwdriver as required on the standard gun.

Shoulder employment of the Mini Uzi produced substantially superior results, both on the range and in the field, to those produced by the regular Uzi, but close-range full-auto work proved to be more difficult due to the tremendously high cyclic rate and sharp angle of the grip in relation to the gun`s receiver.
