Comments: This airgun, made in Taiwan by KWC for Cybergun, is a first-rate replica of the famous IWI (Israeli Weapons Industry) Mini Uzi. The Cybergun Mini Uzi is made entirely of metal, except for the plastic grips, which accounts for its considerable heft (4.8 lbs). The fit and finish of the Cybergun Mini Uzi is very good, so good in fact, that it is quite easy to mistake this replica for the "real thing" when viewed from just a few feet away (heed warnings about brandishing in public). The Mini Uzi operates in true semi-automatic fashion and uses blowback to cycle the firing mechanism for each shot. (Warranty-voiding instructions are available online for converting the Mini Uzi to full-auto operation.) All of the controls on the Cybergun Mini Uzi function just as they do on the firearm including the cocking handle, magazine release, safety/fire-select switch, grip safety, and front/rear sight adjustments. The single-action-only (SAO) trigger on the Mini Uzi is a two-stage design with a short first stage and a smooth, moderately long, medium weight (6.3 lb) second stage. The blowback action is pronounced and produces a kick that exceeds that of many .22 cal rimfire handguns.   

To load the Cybergun Mini Uzi with a CO2 cartridge, remove the magazine and then unscrew the piercing screw from the bottom of the magazine using a 1/4" hex wrench. Place a drop of Crosman Pellgun Oil on the tip of a 12 gram CO2 cylinder (the Mini Uzi is not particular about the brand of cartridge used) and insert the cylinder. Replace the piercing screw and, using the wrench, tighten the screw until you hear the cylinder puncture. Do not over-tighten the cylinder. To load the magazine with BBs, pull the follower to the bottom (there is no catch for the follower) and insert BBs through the lips at the top of the magazine. To fire the Mini Uzi, first push the safety switch to the "S" position and then insert the magazine into the base of the grip. Pull back on the charging handle to cock the gun and then push the safety switch to the "R" position. Grip the gun so that the grip safety is depressed. The gun is now ready to fire in the semi-auto mode. You can expect to get about 65 good shots out of each CO2 cylinder. When the CO2 cylinder is nearly depleted, the Mini Uzi will often go "full-auto" when fired. This is your signal to stop shooting and install a fresh CO2 cylinder. The Cybergun Mini Uzi is fun to shoot and, with the right BBs, is very accurate. Its shot-to-shot muzzle velocity is one of the best ever tested for a BB gun. Although the Mini Uzi is somewhat expensive, it is easy to recommend to avid shooters and collectors alike.

Performance: Measurements were made on 10/16/2010 at a temperature of 74 F and 5000' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Daisy Avanti Match BBs (5.5 gr). The highest velocity measured was 353 fps, the lowest was 343 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 346 fps, s = 4.0). The average velocity was very close to the advertised value of 344 fps. A five-shot string fired with open sights grouped at 0.51". Click the thumbnail below to see a larger image. Click here for a description of the measurement methods.

Four different brands of BBs were tested with the Mini Uzi. The targets below show the results for firing five-shot groups from 15' using a bench and open sights with Crosman Copperhead BBs (0.81"), Daisy Avanti BBs (0.51"), Daisy Precision Max BBs (0.66"), and RWS Match Grade BBs (0.67"). All measurements are center-to-center.


 


 
Right Profile: This profile shows the folding stock in the collapsed position. With the stock collapsed, the Mini Uzi is useable as a semi-auto pistol.

 
Front View:


 
Left Profile 2: The front and rear sights on the Cybergun Mini Uzi are adjustable for elevation (front) and windage (rear). A special tool is supplied to adjust the front sight for elevation. The front sight is a tapered post and the rear sight has two selectable apertures.


 


 
Left Side Markings: The markings in the photo on the left side of the Cybergun Mini Uzi are for the safety and fire selector switch. S = safety, R = semi-auto, A = full-auto (not enabled on gun from factory). The other left side markings indicate the caliber, the serial number, and the authorized IWI logos.

 

Top Markings: The photo on the left shows the warning label stamped into the top of the receiver that cautions the user about altering this "firearm". The photo below shows the warnings stamped into the bottom of the receiver.


 



 
Loading BBs: The Mini Uzi has a 25-shot magazine. The spring follower does not have a lock-down position, so you must hold the follower down while loading BBs through the lips of the magazine.

 

Loading CO2: The CO2 piercing screw is tightened/loosened using a 1/4" hex key (supplied).
