SHOT 2013: IWI Uzi Pro Pistol

By CTD Suzanne published on in Firearms, Handguns, Industry News, SHOT Show

Designed after the infamous Israeli Micro-UZI, IWI, US, Inc. introduces the U.S. civilian version that UZI Pro Pistol. Made in Israel with the American market in mind, the UZI Pro pistol shoots 9mm and has a 4.5-inch barrel. The polymer lower receiver and grip reduce weight. The integrated magazine release button located on the grip makes magazine changes quick. It operates in classic UZI style with simple blow-back operation from a closed bolt with the side-mount cocking handle. The 4-1/2 inch MIL-SPEC barrel is cold-hammer forged CrMoV steel with a 4-groove 1:10 RH twist. The UZI Pro has three safeties—manual thumb, firing pin block and grip safety. The grip safety must be fully depressed for the UZI pistol to shoot. There is a full-length Picatinny rail mounted on the top of the gun, and an under barrel smaller Picatinny rail. The UZI Pro is 9.5 inches overall and weighs less than 4 pounds. The pistol ships with one 20-round magazine and one 25-round magazine, and carries a $1,099 MSRP.
