How to Assemble an Uzi

Learn how to assemble an Uzi from Police Officer Keith Charley in this Howcast gun video.


Today we're going to talk about how to assemble the 9mm Uzi.

The first thing you want to do if your bolt is apart is put the firing pin back on the bolt. So what you do is you grab your bolt here and slide the firing pin on. The firing pin will slide right into the hole and sort of sit right back together like this.

Once you have this back together, then align the springs in the two holes in the back of the gun and you can drop the whole housing in. Just compress it a little bit and it slides right in.

Give it a quick feel to make sure it's seeded properly and then you can return the top back on.

You want to put the top on from the front first. There's a little hook here. Slide that down here, make sure it's caught, and then just push it down and it snaps back into place.

All you have to do now is slide the barrel in. As you slide it in you rotate it. It only fits one way. You can see there's a little notch here. Once it's already in, you can't turn it. It's correct. And then you just tighten this back on. So it's tight.

Once it's back together you rack it back. Pull the trigger and make sure it works correctly. And your gun is reassembled.

And that is how to assemble the 9mm Uzi.
