    You are indeed a sucker for punishment!

    Uzi flat bending *should* be as easy as bending an AK. Getting the measurements for the trunion should be the starting point. Of course making relief cuts for the support ribs, etc. will be a consideration.

    Do you have the weld-it parts?

    Cool, didn't know they sold a flat. I have one of their completed receivers (via Nodak). Very nice. A lot of the parts kits have the trunnions destroyed beyond repair.

    That is a beautiful thing.
    It's just a matter of structuring some metal sections
    to match contours, and allowing some relief cut-out areas
    for the corregations. I can see it folding up much like an AK
    flat bending jig.

    You could almost pour a liquid gel into a finished Uzi receiver and extract it.
    That would be the stamping die model.

    got my parts kit from sarco so the trunnion is intact. i was thinking of cutting the trunnion area of the flat off and bending it as a repair section but dont wanna do anything drastic just yet. I dont have any of the weld components yet, this is kind of a scrape up money and buy the parts one at a time build lol

    i saw a pic of their flats on the mckay websight so i emailed them about it and they said send a check/money order for $64 and they would send it to me. $49 for flat $15 for shipping.

    $49 for the flat? Thats a great deal. There are many Uzi parts kits out there with the trunions destroyed but not the kits from Sarco. I think most of their kits are old stock from the 80's I heard...you know when the ATF was more relaxed.

    Very cool find good luck with the build!

    Yeah, that's half the price of the one they sell bent with the blocking bar welded in.

    Well this will take a lot of welding work. Uzi's aren't complicated, they are bullet hoses after all.

    The semi block that goes on the back will MOST LIKELY be the first thing to add once it is bent. I doubt you need to add it before bending, but don't quote me on that as I really don't know. Bolt mods (milling the slot for the semi block and the sear modification) will of course be next.

    All the weld components are pretty much a fit-it and weld-it situation. There are u-weld-it kits on Gunbroker from time to time so all you should need to do is provide the welder.


    Uzis are fun... I must admit that I like mine even though they are heavy. I recommend you consider getting one of the .40 SW barrels from BarrelXChange@aol.com. He is sometimes on here, and of course on Uzi Talk. Can't remember the pricing, but it is well worth it. The great thing about the .40 is that it is practically a drop-in conversion. Do a little dremel work, if necessary, on the bolt to allow a .40 round to seat properly. Done right (aka done slowly) you will still be able to use 9mm with no problems! Swap the barrel, and presto the 25 round magazine doubles as a 17-18 round .40 magazine.

    Check robertrtg.com for accessories like a $5 sling among other things.


    Another thought - you could build it as a pistol and forego the need for a long barrel. You will need to ensure you don't weld the buttstock on and then you are set. If you use an "Aussie sling" stance where you push forward on the gun to make the sling go taught, thereby bracing you shooting, then you can be surprisingly accurate with it. However, were it me, I would go with the 16" carbine barrel. The extra muzzle velocity is worth the long barrel! It is so freaking short even with the long barrel that it makes for a very compact CQB weapon.
