30 Dec 14. IWI US, Inc. a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI)Ltd., announces the return to the USA of the long-awaited UZI® PRO Pistol for the American consumer market. The UZI® brand is world renowned with sales of over 2 million carbines and pistols worldwide since 1963. Visitors to the 2015 SHOT Show in Las Vegas in January 2015 will get the first look at these new IWI handguns. The UZI® sub-machine gun (SMG) was designed and patented by Uziel Gal who gave the production rights to the Israeli Ministry of Defense. After initial testing by the IDF, the Ordnance Corps ordered 8,000 units and the love affair with the world’s most iconic 9mm platform began. The UZI® PRO Pistol and UZI® PRO Pistol SB are the latest evolution of that storied design, now featuring the most advanced firearms technologies. Based on the famous UZI® SMG, the UZI® PRO is purpose-built with only one goal – uncompromising performance and reliability on a robust design. This 9mm Luger Parabellum version for the American public sports an advanced polymer pistol grip that reduces weight and incorporates an integrated magazine release button for fast and easy magazine changes. The cocking handle is located on the receiver side allowing for a full-length Picatinny rail on the top receiver cover. A short Picatinny rail is also incorporated into the polymer body, mounted below the barrel, perfect for additional accessory placement.
Two versions of the UZI® PRO Pistol will be available in the US. The first is the basic pistol pictured above. But perhaps the most exciting news is that the UZI® PRO Pistol will also be offered with a side-folding Stabilizing Brace, the UZI® PRO SB, produced exclusively for IWI US by SB Tactical LLC, designers and manufacturers of the original SB15 and SB47 Pistol Stabilizing Braces that have reinvigorated the market for large frame pistols in the US.
