Spare parts and accessories are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly. This is especially true of the trigger group, which houses all of the fire controls. Keeping this component of the rifle in working order should be made a top priority. If a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.
It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com has a selection of authentic, original parts and components for the Uzi SMG. Not only are they readily available, but also they are cheap. Those with an interest or need for any of the parts and accessories offered should realize that now is the time to take advantage of this offering as replacement parts for the Uzi are becoming increasingly harder and harder to find.
The Uzi is an open bolt, blowback-operated submachine gun named for its designer, Uziel Gal. Originally designed in the late 1940s, the Uzi was officially adopted in 1951 and introduced to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in 1954. The magazine is housed in the pistol grip, which is made possible by the inventive telescoping bolt and allows for a much shorter firearm. The Uzi served a pivotal role in the Six-Day War and appeared in many other major conflicts as well, including the Suez Crisis, the Vietnam War, the Yom Kippur War, the ongoing Mexican Drug War and many others. It saw service in IDF units through 2003, when it was replaced by the Micro Tavor, or MTAR-21.
It has seen official service with military and police forces in over 90 nations including the United States Secret Service (USSS). The Uzi was the official submachine gun of the USSS from the 1960s through the early 1990s. It has since been replaced by the MP5 and the P90. In what is arguably the most famous photograph to feature the Uzi, Special Agent Robert Wanko can be seen wielding the firearm just after the attempted assassination of former President Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley Jr. on March 30, 1981.
As noted, our Uzi SMG trigger groups are original parts made in Germany. They were originally manufactured for use with German MP2s and have since been stripped for resale. When you order, you will not only be receiving a complete, fully-functional trigger group, you will also be receiving a piece of German military history. On the Uzi SMG, the trigger group can be found mounted below the receiver. You will also be interested to hear that all trigger groups fall between ratings of "very good" and "excellent."
Whether you are looking to build your very own Uzi or simply repair an existing one, the Uzi SMG trigger group is a great starting point.
