    Going twice. No uzi flat jig plans. I guess I have to ask Santa for one?

    Suprised I never saw this post.

    If it were me I would do as others suggested, trim off the front section and weld on the front end from your kit.

    A member on another forum was offering side plates a long time ago, I successfully welded the front and rear stubs onto mine, which allowed me to keep the IMI crest and Hebrew markings.

    A very old 110V mig welder. Which can also weld aluminum, LOL.

    The UZI receivers are pretty darn thick, so it doesn't suprise me that the flats are hard to bend. Will have to measure, but am guessing probably around .065" thick.

    The hardest part was splicing on the rear stub and not messing up the ribs and not messing up the serial # and markings. The blocking bar provides a good reinforcement to the whole rear end.

    And by the way, UZI top covers are hardened (I'm guessing). Had to use a carbide 1/8" endmill to punch holes thru for the pic rail.

    The end of the barrel looked too plain, so I added an HK flash hider.

    Was way over on US made parts since I made my own striker set-up. Hardest part was modifying the bolt to semi, the dang firing pin hole took 4 hours to drill after annealing.

    Do you want a set of grips? I just stumbled across them in my safe, and have no use at all for them. I'll pay shipping, you make a donation to Gunco?

    Let me know.
