IMI Mini UZI [Submachine Gun]:
The Mini-UZI is very similar to the standard UZI but is more compact and actually has a higher rate of fire. Some people have criticized the higher rate of fire because it makes the weapon harder to control when burst firing. Another advantage of the full sized UZI was that single shots could be fired without changing the selector on the weapon to fully automatic. A better muzzle brake partial compensates for this.
The weapon can be fired from an open bolt or a closed bolt. Like the regular UZI, the wapeon uses blowback operation.
The smaller size of the Mini-UZI allows the weapon to be used easier in small enclosed confines such as the inside of an APC. The Mini-Uzi has a folding stock for easier concealability.
The Mini Uzi is still considered an excellent weapon due to its smaller size and reliabilty.
The Magazine for the Mini-Uzi and the standard UZI are the same and some of the parts between the two weapons are interchangeable.
The weapon is very expensive to purchase in the United States due to the weapons many but can be purchased in other nations for a fraction of the cost. Civilain Semi-Automatic versions without many of the features and non folding stocks are available at a fraction of the cost of a fully automatic in the United States.
