I'm not much for painting or making things pretty on my guns, overall if a modification doesn't do something to make it shoot or handle better it is a nonstarter for me. But I found an exception. I just couldn't stand the way that barrel stuck out on the Uzi carbine and I bought a nylon shroud /fake can. I like it a lot! Do I wish I had a real can or a SBR, sure but that’s not happening unless I win the lotto.

I got this from JWH223 over on UziTalk, a great guy to deal with and he does quality work.

How much does he charge for them?
How well does it hold up to the heat?

to SBR that thing is $200 for the tax and maybe $80 for a barrel. You already have the gun....

They are $100 shipped. Haven't read about any problem with heat buildup on the barrel.

Here is a link to the UZI Talk thread.

I have thought about it but I'm afraid it would be just the first step...... then maybe I should add a suppressor too.

+1 on that. I have SBR'ed two Uzi's in the last 6 months, no issues with the ATF or getting a short barrel.
I would go the trust route, AZEX can help you out with that for less than $100 and it is money well spent!

Has anyone done a brief write up on SBR'ing your UZI in AZ?
I have just decided to start using my UZI instead of it sitting in the closet.

I have a brand new UZI kit , never fired with 2 barrels and I'd like to enjoy this rifle
with both a long and a short barrel.
Purchased way back when Action Arms stopped importing them due to the assault rifle ban.

Dang.....it seems just too easy to just have a long barrel for sale and a cut barrel for ...well.. you know!.....aaargh!!
That nylon faux Suppressor looks freaking cool!

It looks like you have two long barrels. AFAIK, the Uzis were sold with a non-functioning short "barrel" (looks only) and the 16" carbine barrel. If one has a short barrel (real) and one's Uzi isn't registered as an SBR, then one runs a real risk of constructive possession of an unregistered SBR, even if the short barrel is never installed.

It was a very easy process to SBR it, really. Fill out the forms (Form 1, since you'll be the one manufacturing it) and send to ATF's NFA branch.
I found a SMG barrel that had the band turned to fit in a semi-auto Uzi, ordered it and had it shipped to a friend's house, who had no Uzi.
Received my Form 1 with tax stamp, approving it.
Called my friend, he brought the barrel over and installed it.
Voila! SBR Uzi.

I thought about chopping my 16" barrel to make the short barrel for the conversion, but found an SMG one that had already been turned to fit. I think an SMG barrel looks better, since the muzzle wouldn't be flat/chopped, even if done well. I would think it would take some more machining to give it that "rounded" muzzle the Uzi's have.

Been a while for a repy...sorry....forget how many forums i'm on.
Yes, my kit came with 2 long barrels and the show barrel ( under the owners manual).
Still have yet to shoot it.
Should it be cleaned first before shooting or shoot it with existing packing materials?
Grease, cosmoline etc

Whats the timeline on a sbr permit?

NFA tax stamps are running 6-8 months, I believe.
I would clean it. Uzis are stupid simple to clean. Read the manual, it should outline it.
