    Is it more Collectable than the 9mm?

    How do you find the ergos when firing?

    Does it have issues with FTF or FTE?

    Do you like the collapsible stock?

    I shot a 9mm version w/ a 16" barrel a while back and remember that it was very accurate.

    I've never had any experience with a select fire Uzi.

    I prefer the Vector Arms Grease Gun magazine version. Factory Uzi 45ACP mags are terribly expensive. More collectible? There are a lot less of them in the commercial marketplace so, I guess so.

    Ergonomics feel identical to me. The Grease Gun version fits my hand nicely as does a factory 9mm.

    My Vector Arms model does fine at the range.

    I like the compactness it offers but, prefer a fixed stock from range days. The Mini-Uzi wire stock is nicer IMHO but, the full-size Uzi stock works well.

    Accuracy seems to be limited by the shooters eyes and the sighting system used. For a combat arm, they are accurate enough in my book. At CQB ranges (or an indoor pistol range), accuracy isn't an issue. If you are lobbing 45ACP rounds at long range, accuracy depends on your eyes and the sighting system used.

    I prefer an HK MP-5 SMG but, at 2 1/2 times the cost I went with an Uzi SMG. The UZI SMG is an open bolt gun so, you have that big heavy massive bolt going back and forth so precision falls off a bit. However, in a burst I like having a little bit of a shotgun pattern. The HK MP-5 is much smooth and can stack all rounds on top of each other.

    I should also note that I own 3 Uzi's (2 with tax stamps :)).
