If you have ever seen the A-team or the movie Raw Deal you have seen one of these. Its a MAC-10 dressed up(sort of) to look like an Uzi.What with this? They couldn`t get Uzis? Or they couldn`t get Uzis to fire blanks or what? I like the Uzi better but whats wrong with(in the movies at the time) the MAC?

Wayyyyy back then .... you remember when the A-Team was still in its original run, right? Well, at that time Uzis were still very rare in this country, and they also were new enough to be seen (by Hollywood, at least) as cutting-edge technology.

Importation of full-auto weapons for civilian ownership was banned in 1968; after that, anything that came in was a nontransferable dealer's sample. And even dealers had a hard time getting them, because imports were being limited by the U.S. and at the time Israel was the only producer, and they were keeping and using every one they made.

As recently as 1985, when Colt factory M16A1s were selling for $800, a registered full-auto Uzi was worth $4,500, andyou could buy a full-auto MAC10 for under $200. So the movie-gun companies charged way less to rent look-alikes than the real thing.

No it didn`t look like that. Since I can`t post a pic of it just watch the A-Team(if its being re-ran in your area it is in mine) or watch the Schwarzenegger movie Raw Deal. In that movie in the first and last seens the mob guys had one. Also did Arnold have a Full Auto HK94 or a long barrel MP5?
