To my knowledge, I'm the first one to make a Rail System for the Uzi. GGG makes an underneath rail but not a Rail System with rails on the bottom and both sides. This is a prototype of a Rail System that I designed for the full size Uzi. I'm in the process of doing one for the MINI Uzi as well. This one still needs to be Molycoated. I plan on sandblasting then Molycoating.
There is absolutely no play. It is very solid. The factory handguards are removed. It mounts via the rear grip screw lug and the bayonet lug.
I personally like this better than the IMI vertical grip setup that Vector sells. It seems bulky to me. With this setup, you can move the vertical grip to the position that best suits your frame. The further back the vertical grip, the more it makes your elbows tuck in and keep the muzzle down.
I ran into some issues that I did not anticipate:
|3. Comparing to an old IMI demilled front receiver
section, it appears some of the very early IMI's used a square rear grip
lug rather than round. Both my IMI and my friend's Vector are round.
The following is what I posted on Uzitalk click HERE for the link to the discussion.
Well here's the deal...
Update 6/6/03. I also posted this on Uzitalk as well.
Bad news, I miscalculated the amount of rail that I will need for each gun in my mind. Here are the actual specs:
Left rail: 3.5" long
I was thinking that I could use one 12" rail
per gun. That is out the window. Also since we are talking about cutting
up a picatinny rail, it is inevitable that you will be wasting material
everytime you cut it because of the "sections".
|I got one of the new Bushmaster folding grips as I thought it would work good for a compact SMG. I had to cut it down so it would fold before the trigger guard. I still think the Knight's is more comfortable though.|
|In this position, it is a little more compact and you can still shoot it with it folded. I was thinking along the lines of an HK MP7.|
|You can also fold the grip forward which would come in handy if you wanted to position it further back and leave it longer.|
|I posted this one to show that with the grip folded forward that it still does not interfere with the suppressor. Suppressor was a crappy SDS can until LRM rebuilt it and made it an awesome can. I plan on writing more about this can later.|
