    UZI® PRO Pistols Now Shipping

    The wait is over; the UZI® PRO pistol expected to hit retailer shelves this month.

    Harrisburg, Pa. (July 2015)- IWI US, Inc ., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd. ,
    announces the highly anticipated UZI® PRO Pistol for the American consumer market is now shipping to distributors. Retailers can expect the iconic pistol to hit their shelves in the next few weeks. Demand from UZI® fans and gun enthusiasts has been overwhelming. IWI US is proud to return this updated version to the American public.

    The UZI® submachine gun (SMG) was designed and patented by Uziel Gal who gave the

    production rights to the Israeli Ministry of Defense. After initial testing by the IDF, the Ordnance Corps ordered 8,000 units and the love affair with the world's most iconic 9mm platform began. The UZI® brand is world renowned with sales of over 2 million carbines and pistols worldwide since 1963.

    The UZI® PRO Pistol is the latest evolution of that storied design, now featuring the most advanced firearms technologies. Based on the famous UZI® SMG, the UZI® PRO is purpose-built with only one goal: uncompromising performance and reliability on a robust design. This 9mm Luger Parabellum version for the American public has an advanced polymer pistol grip that reduces weight and incorporates an integrated magazine release button for fast and easy magazine changes. The cocking handle is located on the receiver side allowing for a full-length Picatinny rail on the top receiver cover. A short Picatinny rail is also incorporated into the polymer body, mounted below the barrel, perfect for additional accessory placement.

    The new UZI® PRO features three safety mechanisms: a conventional manual thumb safety, a firing pin block and a proven grip safety that must be fully depressed before the gun can be cocked and fired.

    Simple maintenance on the UZI® PRO requires no special tools for quick and easy field stripping. Each UZI® PRO Pistol comes with one 20-round and one 25-round magazine.

    The UZI® PRO Pistol (Part Number: UPP9S) has an MSRP of $1,109.00.
