Anyone have a supplier for them? Anyone have an FFL close to Bakersfield that will transfer one?

I wanna build a pinned mag Uzi... I think it would be cool!

Plus on my trips to free states I could replace the lower with a non-pinned version.

One other user already did it... DROSed it and everything... that is what got my interests peaked. I was digging through old threads... :)

The user was tonyayo and I believe the Group Industries Uzi receivers are off list.

Gun runners sells 'em, I almost bought one, but all the welding involved is above me, one dealer was selling 'em with the trunions already welded, but they are pretty rare.

I am talking about 100% receivers that I can DROS.

Group Industries receivers are off list.

Vector Arms sells Group Industries receivers, as well as full CA-compliant UZI builds.

Vector is, however, sold out of receivers until March (estimated)

Yeah the ones at gunrunners are 100% that must be drossed, they are not flats, they were not cheap either, right under 200 bucks

Get Vector to build one for you. Rex is a great guy and did a GREAT job. You just gotta get past the woman on the phone first. They just need to convert the mag to a 10 round (or if you get it in .45 it comes with a 10 round), Pin the mag, weld the folding stock open. Give em a call and ask for Rex. May take you a while to get it though.

Edit: look at all my posts about the UZI - I bought a quick release pin that makes reloading easy as hell.

Thanks Tony! But if the mags are fixed, folding stock should be legal. You got a pic of the build you want to share?:D

if we get it pinned why do we have to have the stock welded open?

also does anyone know of a DOJ letter on the Group Industries Receivers?

My FFL said he'd do it if I could find one, and I don't want to go chasing around to find a new FFL in SO CAL to dros these evil lookin toys.

I think you have an issue with overall length. That is why the stock must be welded open.

Yup still has to meet 30 inches

hrmm... makes sense, I forgot about that 30 inch overall length thing.

Not if you need the stock to be extended to make the overall length be 30 inches.

Of course, if you're going that way, do like I am - get a wood stock. :D (or polymer if you still want the all-black look)

I had an Uzi that I paid $500 for back in 1986. Traded it 2 years later for a Sig 226. Clearly the biggest regret of guns I've gotten rid of.
