Made by Carl Walther in Germany, there are two variants of the Israel Weapon Industries licensed UZI .22—a rifle with a mock suppressor and a pistol.

True to physical form, these two dedicated .22s feed economical rimfire cartridges from 20-round magazines. The rifle has an authentic folding stock, a detachable sling swivel, and the traditional UZI handguard that can be removed to reveal a Picatinny rail. Complete with grip safeties and adjustable sights, these well-recognized semi-auto arms are another great addition to the growing field of tactical .22s.

"The demand for .22 caliber guns continues to be strong," said Richard Turner, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Umarex USA. "The addition of a .22 caliber UZI is a 'natural' add for us. It's one of the most-recognized guns on the planet, yet few people have actually fired rounds through one. Shooting the UZI pistol is just pure, economical recreation with a ton of fun thrown in."

The first shipment of UZI .22s are expected in the U.S.A. in mid-February with additional inventory arriving during the summer. The UZI pistol will retail in the neighborhood of $480 while the rifle will be near $645.

Umarex USA is one of North America's fastest growing sport and recreation gun companies. Umarex USA markets firearms and non-powder guns under licensed brands such as Walther, RWS, Smith & Wesson, Browning, Heckler & Koch, Ruger, Beretta, Colt, Elite Force, Magnum Research, Regent, UZI, and others.
