Uziel Gal was a German-born Israeli who served half of a six-year sentence after having been arrested for carrying a gun illegally in the British Mandate of Palestine. He was released in 1946, two years before Israel declared her independence. A gifted designer, Gal began work on a new submachine gun and completed his first prototype in 1950.


SEMIAUTO MINI UZI HISTORY:
In 1955, the Uzi submachine gun entered service and was produced by acompany called Israel Military Industries, or IMI. The full size UZISMG was a great success and eventually the need for a smaller, morecompact and concealable weapon was needed. The Mini Uzi was designed in1978, and in 1980 it made its full debut with the Israel specialforces. After a few years of useby Israels troops, this model went worldwide. In North America, acompany called Action Arms Ltd. had already been importing recieversand creating semi-automatic versions of the full size SMGs. Theystarted getting the full auto Mini Uzis in late 1983 or early 1984, andin1987, they came out with the semi-auto Mini Uzi carbine. This versionhad a closed bolt and was equipped with a 19 inch barrel to comply withUS firearm laws.
The very first IMI Mini's produced in Israel (known as the model A),had the old style front and rear sights like the full size Model A Uzi.Few were made for testing only and none of them were imported into theUS. IMI made a few changes to the sights and some other internal partsand called the models created with these changes the 'model B'. Thesechanges were also done to the Mini and this is the version that wouldbe imported into the US through Action Arms. Production went fine for acouple years until 1989, when a ban on the importation of assaultweapons caused production of the Mini carbine to come to a halt.
On August 24th, 1995, a U.S. Uzi manufacturer named Group Industrieswent out of business and held an auction for their left over recievers,parts and other miscellaneous junk. A company out of Utah called VectorArms bought the remaining recievers (all model A full size uzis) andheld on to them for a few years. They went into the business ofproducing full size Uzis in 1999, only after finding another company toreproduce some of the parts that would be needed to complete the guns.That company was Lyttleton Engineering in South Africa, who wouldproduce 77 of the internal parts needed for the Uzi like the triggerhousing, sear and disconnector. Vector would handle the rest such asthe barrel, grips and the trigger.
Eventually, Vector began producing the Mini Uzi full auto submachinegun as well, using cut down Group Industries model A recievers. Thereceivers did not have the two horizantal 'ribs' on the rear sides ofthe gun due to the need for space for importation markings and othermanufacturer information. At first Vector tried to replicate the rear'ribs' on the Minis but you could tell that they were rewelded in thatarea and the ribs on the right side had to stop short of the groupindustries serial number. There were only a VERY small handful of theseguns made. Vector ceased making cut down GI receiver SMG Minis inNovember of 2003.
In the early 2000s, a California company called New Hevectia Trading Co(NHM), imported about 2000-3000 full size IMI Uzi receivers and ahandfull of IMI Mini carbine semi auto recievers. Vector Arms boughtabout 300 of the Mini model B receivers from them. The NHM receiverswere original IMI factory receivers that were surplus after Action Armscould no longer import the semi-auto in 1989. Importation markings arestamped on guns once the gun is actually in the country, but sincethese guns never made it to the United States or Action Arms, thereceivers were blank until they were stamped by NHM. These receiversare stamped with 'N.H.M. CO. SAC. CA.' on the bottom of the rearsection. As Vector has stated many times, the IMI/NMH Mini Uzis thatVector sold were not cut down guns. They also feature the sameskeletonized trunion as the Action Arms IMI guns.
Somehow along the way, Vector ended up with some post-ban IMI Mini Uzicarbine recievers from Action Arms that were never completely assembledinto guns but had all of the Action Arms Ltd import stampings on therear of the gun. It is possible that these recievers were from the sameNHM import as mentioned above and that the import contained a mixtureof the unmarked receivers and some that had been pre-marked for ActionArms, as IMI had pre-marked guns before. Being that these receiverswere imported after the assault weapons ban of 1994, they had thefolding stock and the bayonet lugs completely milled off. They had thetraditional black IMI gun finish on them but were bare metal where thestock and bayonet lug once were. There was also a small hole for thefixed stock version of the Mini, on the bottom of the reciever. In lateSeptember of 2004 it was decided that 200 of these recievers would beused to create a Mini Uzi 'pistol' variant that would be just like theregular Mini Uzi, complete with a short 'dual compensator' cut barrel,but minus any form of stock or ability to mount one.
The first Mini Uzi pistol was built in November of 2004 on an ActionArms marked IMI model B semi Mini carbine receiver. They came with one25 round magazine and an owners manual. The gun came standard with agrey parkerized finish, but for an extra $50, Vector could apply ablack finish, very similar to the original IMI finish. Vector usedHebrew marked lowers for these guns as well as they had previously runout of the standard 'ARS' stamped versions. In January of 2005, Vectoralso began adding a sling loop to the flat back of the reciever.Eventually, the NHM marked semi auto Mini receivers would start beingused for the Mini Uzi pistols as well.
Between July of 2006 and October of 2006, Vector confirmed that therewere no more of the IMI or NHM Mini Uzi recievers left. Future Mini Uzipistols and carbines would be made from Group Industries model A cutdowns, taking about 6 shop hours to make one receiver. In 2008, Vectortemporarily closed its doors due to some legal issues, but in early2009 they slowly re-opened. As of the re-opening, Vector has startedusing DES (German) marked lowers on the majority of its guns due to asurge in available German Uzi parts kits. The Mini pistol and Minicarbine are still produced on cut down Group Industries receivers tothis day.

MYGUN:

Iordered my mini Uzi pistol in early November of 2004, and recieved iton November 23rd, 2004. It was the first Mini Uzi pistol they made. Ihad Vector exchange the 25 round mag for a 32 rounder ($18). I alsoordered a sight tool ($8) and a magazine loader ($8). Vector told methat they were out of the standard ARS lowers so I would be getting anIMI Hebrew marked lower. They filled in the selection for full autoleaving only two Hebrew markings and they also added the Englishletters above the Hebrew letters. The first group (safe position)contains two letters - 'NT'. It stands for the word Natzur (Safe). Thesecond group (semi position) contains one letter - 'B'. It stands forthe word Bodedet (Single).


My gun was completed on Friday, November 19th, 2004. Vector had calledme earlier that week to let me know that it would be completed then andthey let me know my shipping options. I sent out another $11 to add tothe shipping total for second day air UPS ground delivery. I Picked itup on November 23rd and brought it home. It came in a plain whitecardboard box wrapped up in bubble wrap. It came with everything Iasked for and a warranty paper. The serial number on the original IMIMini Uzi carbines had the prefix MC (Mini Carbine), which was leftintact on my gun before the serial number. The old carbines werestamped 'MINI UZI CARBINE' above the serial and caliber stampings, buton the Vector Mini pistols, this was redone very nicely to read 'MINIUZI PISTOL'.

Onthe bottom are the markings for Action Arms and IMI.

Vectoralso added their name a little further forward on the gun on the leftside of the receiver as they do with all of their guns.

Theright side of the gun has the two ribs running the full length to theback, an easy identifier for IMI receivers.

Thearea where the bayonet lug no longer exists looks good and clean, andto the non-educated, no one would ever know there was supposed to beone on there.

Thearea where the stock used to be is the same way.

Thegun uses standard model B front and rear sights.

Thetop cover has the slide plate with the aleration warning marking, foundon all semi auto variants.

Upontaking the top cover off, you see that the gun has the skeletonizedtrunion of an IMI gun, a modified feedramp as well as the semi autobarrel restrictor band.

Pistol

Ithas a standard semi-auto Mini Uzi bolt and striker/firing pin assembly.

Thebarrel lacks a trunion restriction band as seen on the full auto MiniUzi barrels allthough there is a very tiny step up near the back. Therear end is turned down to fit inside the barrel restriction band abovethe feed ramp.

Ifound out that on some barrels, the (P) stamping stands for Pretoria.Lyttelton is a South African Uzi parts maker that Vector uses forparts, and some of their parts were subcontracted through PretoriaMetal Pressing (PMP) which is also a division of Denel, the parentcompany of Lyttleton (which is now called Vektor). In other cases(original IMI guns) this 'P' marking is simply a inspection proof stamp.


SHORTBARREL RIFLE CONVERSION:
In order for a gun to be considered a rifle/carbine, it has to have aminimum barrel length of 16 inches or retain an overall length of over25 inches. This is why the original IMI Mini Uzi carbines with the sidefolding stock shipped with a looong barrel sticking out the front ofthe gun. The previous minimum barrel length use to be 19'. In order fora gun to be considered a pistol, it cannot have a stock of any sort,so, in order to have the original looking 8' barrel AND the originalside folding stock on the same Mini Uzi, the gun has to be registeredwith the ATF as a 'short barrel rifle' or 'SBR'. This involves alengthy process of submitting forms and fingerprint cards and someother stuff I wont go into detail about here.
I filed my SBR paperwork in October of 2009 and got my approval andstamp back in January of 2010. I waited until around April to send mygun into Vector to have them do the conversion. I sent it in a waitedabout three weeks before calling them and asking how things were going.They said that they had just taken on a major contract and would nolonger be doing work on personal guns. They shipped my gun back to meand it was then that I looked into Richard of BWE Firearms in Florida.After a few emails back and forth, I decided to send my gun in to him.I should have sent it a lot sooner because evidently everyone who wasgoing to be getting something done with Vector, decided that Richardwould be their best bet as well.
I got my gun back on November 12th, 2010 after a few months of waiting.I knew going into it that it would take a long time and Richard is aVERY busy man.

Ihad Richard refinish it with Norells Moly Resin Semi-Gloss Black. Thisstuff has a very slight shine to it, but I personally think it lookslike the best possible finish to match the old IMI SMGs.

Thereceiver markings used to say 'UZI MINI PISTOL' but I had it changed tomatch how the stampings appear on the SMG version. It now reads simply'MINI UZI' and is in the proper place to match the real full auto SMGs.

Mygun came originally with the bayonet lug milled off so I had one added.

Sergeant peppers lonely heart band movie. Ialso provided Richard with the stock mounting plate and a new stock toput on. You cant even tell that there was ever not one there.

Mygun also originally came with a Hebrew trigger group from vector withthe English letters above the Hebrew. I provided Richard with an ARSgroup to install instead, once again to replicate the full auto MiniSMG. I had him fill the letters with paint so he filled the 'A' and the'R' with red and the 'S' with white. I changed this so that they wereall white, the way the SMGs came.

Ihad the top cover slot plate replaced with one without the semi autowarning message on it.

Finally,I had the barrel engraved with my information as required on the SBRforms.
