Umarex/Walther/IMI UZI Photos, and disassembly


Recommended Posts

Ok, so here are some pics of the UZI. You probably wont find these details anywhere else online. So enjoy.

On the top of the UZI at the rear sight is a button, you press it back and the whole top of the reciever just pops right off giving you access to the guts for cleaning. No tools required.

Once the top is off, you remove the cover off the bolt. Then pull the bolt to the rear, and the entire bolt, guide rod, recoil spring, and buffer just comes right out.

The guts removed showing the trigger assembly

Then you pop one pin out of the side, and the whole trigger assembly comes right off of the reciever.

You can now slide the folding stock off of the rifle exposing a hole for your cleaning rod so that you can clean from chamber to muzzle and not damage the crown. YAY!!!!

The rifle also comes with a quick detach sling mount, and two mounting points. One on right rear, left front, and the folding stock has a non-removable sling point.

The rear stock folds, with the push of a button...easy, and is very rock solid and sturdy in both the folded and extended positions.

If you use the included allen wrench, you can remove the front grip exposing a picatinny rail for the attachment of lasers/flashlights/vertical grips, etc.

Front Sight is a standard detent post style.

Rear Sight is a ghost ring/peep type sight.

I have to tell you, Umarex/Walther really REALLY stepped it up on this one.

There is no doubt in my mind that they seriously considered the feedback on their other offerings regarding the nightmare of disassembly and cleaning. This is by far a radical departure from the norm, and wonderful result of a company listening to its customers. I rate it a 10 for easy of disassembly/cleaning.

Also, it feeds and ejects like a .22 should. It kicks the empties straight out, and up. No oddball flinging one direction, and then another. It is smooth, and consistent.

My only complaint about the rifle is that the magazines are EXTREMELY difficult to empty unless you shoot them dry. Once loaded up, the rounds fit so tightly and exactly into the mag, there just is no space to thumb them out if you need to. Ive found the easiest way to empty them is to just load it up, and cycle the gun manually to empty them all out.

The rifle is HEAVY....It has some SERIOUS weight to it.

Accuracy test coming soon...with photos. I'm very tempted to benchrest it, because its weight and solid construction makes me think that off a sandbag it will drive tacks better than any of the other tactical .22's. Although it's so tempting to just empty a mag as fast as you can from the hip. The reset is very short on the trigger, so I'm wondering if perhaps this will be the .22 tactical that you can bump fire. At the very least you should be able to empty it very quickly.

I know it bugs me when I cant find detailed photos of a gun online. So when I get the chance with a new and fairly rare gun, I usually shoot lots of photos of it to share so if there are any other folks thinking about a purchase, they can see what they are getting. Also, its nice to see the guts of one before you buy, since most gun shops get a little irate if you start disassembling their showroom guns.

Glad you like em.

If anyone wants to see a specific part that I didn't post above, let me know and I'll shoot a shot of it for you.
