The UZI is probably one of the most famous
submachine guns in the world and rightly so. It is a rugged and
reliable weapon and can be found in operation almost everywhere.
Because it receives it's magazine through the pistol grip it is
more compact than other 9mm SMGs. But, because it fires from the
open bolt, it is not as accurate as the H&K MP5 series. It's
design is based on the Czech vz.23 and vz.25 SMG and uses a telescoping
bolt to reduce overall length. A telescoping bolt is partially
hollow so that when the round is fired, much of the bolt is forward
of the chamber. This allows for a shorter length of the entire
weapon. It is an inch shorter (stock collapsed) than the MP5 but
has a 2 inch longer barrel.
