Our Assessment:  One of the most iconic submachine guns in history: the Israeli Model B Uzi. Now this little guy was developed by Israeli designer Uziel Gal back in the 1950s and quickly became a favorite of military and law enforcement personnel around the world.

One of the things that makes the Israeli Model B Uzi stand out is its grip safety. You gotta depress that thing in order to fire the weapon, which adds an extra layer of safety and helps prevent accidental discharges. And let’s face it, safety is key when it comes to firearms.

But that’s not all that’s cool about the Uzi. It’s a lightweight, compact weapon that’s perfect for close-quarters combat. And with its blowback action and high rate of fire, you can really lay down some serious lead if you need to.

Now, the Uzi has a long and storied history, particularly within the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). It’s seen action in numerous conflicts and operations, including the Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War, and Operation Entebbe.

But the Uzi’s impact goes beyond just the military. It’s also been used by law enforcement agencies around the world, including the US Secret Service, which used the Uzi to protect President Ronald Reagan during his presidency.

All in all, the Israeli Model B Uzi is a classic weapon that’s stood the test of time. It’s reliable, easy to maintain, and just plain cool. So if you’re a gun enthusiast looking for a piece of history, you can’t go wrong with an Uzi. This Uzi comes with its original display barrel, serialized manual, magazines, and speed loader, and it all comes nicely packed away in a high quality Case Club custom hard case.   Please see our photos, specs below, and good luck on your bid!
