Our Assessment:   The Uzi Pistol is a semi-automatic handgun that was designed and manufactured in Israel by Uziel Gal in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The Uzi was based on the open-bolt design of the Czechoslovakian ZK 476 submachine gun, which Gal had worked on during his time in the Czech Army.
The Uzi was first introduced to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in 1954, and it quickly became popular due to its compact size, reliability, and ease of use. In 1956, the Uzi was officially adopted as the IDF’s standard submachine gun, and it saw extensive use in the Six-Day War in 1967.
The Uzi Pistol was introduced in the 1980s as a civilian version of the military Uzi. It featured a shorter barrel and a smaller magazine capacity, and it was marketed primarily to law enforcement and private citizens for self-defense purposes.   It has been widely exported and is used by militaries, law enforcement agencies, and civilians around the world. The Uzi remains a symbol of Israeli ingenuity and innovation in the field of firearms design.  This Uzi pistol is in Fine condition and comes with an original Vintage Hagor UZI Tactical Survival IDF Israeli Army Vest.     Please see our photos, specs below, and good luck on your bid!
