    Default Uzi build

    I have just ordered an UZI parts kit and have a receiver, and I want to build a pistol out of it, just curious is how hard is it to build these up? (the receiver has the trunion and feed ramp) Is there any welding required? And any other pain in the rear steps.

    Two great tutorials (not pistols, but still very relevant):

    Be sure you tweak the parts that are required for SA-only operation *******BEFORE******* you weld, otherwise you've built an NFA weapon.

    That said, if you have the receiver, you also have to weld in the blocking bar (at the rear) before you do anything else.

    I saw the Uzi build tutorials and I may build one depending on part availability and cost. I'll probably make a semi auto pistol since the I have to use a 16" barrel with a rear stock.

    The uzitalk board says that in general the parts kits are not a cost effective way to build a non NFA UZI.

    cost is usually not the issue with building, we do it because we enjoy it. I definitely enjoy building more than shooting. Once I finish a build, I'm always looking for the next project.

    oh man do you have it bad....... i still love to shoot way more than build.

    but building satisfies my construction urge and keeps me smelling of welding and grinding.

    A pistol build of an UZI kit is cost effective, the only required semi parts are the bolt and striker assembly, the rest can be modified to semi auto specs. You can also sell the folding stock to trade off against the cost of the bolt and striker. If you have a mill and carbide bits, you can modify the original bolt and save some $$.
