I've always wanted an Uzi. Don't ask me why. I see parts kits around for $150-$300, and Nodak has started making receivers for $100 for ones that need work and $200 for ones that are ready to go. Evidently, Nodak is shipping instructions on that stupid "parts count" law too.

Of course it would have to be SBR, I cant stand that abomination of a 16 inch barrel on them

Anybody done it yet? Any issues? What else would be needed? Would it be cheaper in the long run to buy a complete semi one at $675 or so?

I'm thinking it might be cheaper in the long run buying a completed one.

I hadn't assembled one, but I think you got to do some welding, fitting and some other SA bits if you don't want to stamp it for FA too.

Build the pistol. Then if you have to have a stock SBR it. Save money over compliance parts.

I figured chuck's got all kinds of cool stuff laying around in his yard he'd have a time machine to take him back to the pre 86' days, and while he was there he could pick Dan up a bigfoot, heard they was so many back then that every little stand of trees had a few.

as a matter of fact I do have one in the shed, but I don't imagine it's mint anymore, been sitting in a 5 gallon bucket full of all manner of hotwheels and starwars action figures for the last thirty years or so.

Chuck, there is a few things that have to be done different but I can't remember what. I do have a FA one that I will bring out and let you shoot if you want.

IMHO an Uzi is an outstanding full-auto weapon, but as a semi-auto it leaves much to be desired (even as an SBR). It is way too heavy for a semi (though the weight does make it very controlable in fulll). One good feature is that mags are cheap and plentiful. I just think you would be better served by a 9mm AR if you really want a pistol caliber semi-auto carbine. Again, just my humble opinion, YMMV.

No Bruddah, it's not about wanting a "pistol caliber carbine". It's about wanting an Uzi Then again I want a BAR too and a Thompson

What do full auto ones go for? Are they easy to come by?

I totally understand wanting one just because you want one. I just thought you were wanting a pistol caliber carbine and you thought an Uzi build would be an inexpensive way to do it.

Anway, a FA Uzi is far cheaper than a BAR or Thompson. Should be able to get into one around $7K . Here is one for sale at UziTalk: http://www.uzitalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58887 and another at Subguns: http://www.subguns.com/classifieds/index.cgi?db=nfafirearms&website=&language=&session_key=&search_and_display_db_button=on&results_format=long&db_id=18516&query=retrieval
