KWC Mini UZI Most Commonly Asked Questions

No Comments

There has been some confusion when it comes to the KWC made Mini UZI regarding semi and full auto abilities and also when it comes to build materials. But before we get into that if you have one of these Mini UZI Blowback BB or Airsoft guns then most likely yours is made by KWC even if it was distributed through RWS, Umarex, Gletcher, Cybergun or some other company. When it comes to the build materials used they are all made by KWC so they are all built the same with plastic and metal in the same places.

Let’s first talk about why some of these Mini UZI’s only come in semi auto with the Full auto selection not available out of the box. This is most likely because in some countries a full auto BB and/or Airsoft gun can be illegal so to play it safe many airguns that are originally made to shoot in both semi and full auto are modified to only shoot full auto. This is the case with most of the companies that redistribute the KWC Mini UZI under their own brand name. That said if you buy the KWC Mini UZI in either 4.5.mm Steel BB or 6mm Plastic Airsoft from our Replica Airguns Canada or US Online Stores, you will be getting a full auto ready out of the box airgun!

If your MINI UZI Airgun is not full auto ready then checkout my Full Auto Mod Video but make sure before you do this modification it is legal in your country to do so or you could be looking at jail time :(

When it comes to build materials the KWC Mini UZI is often described on websites as being full metal which is close but not entirely true. It is accepted that most full metal airguns will have plastic grips but the KWC Mini UZI also has a plastic shroud around the main receiver that is am all in one piece that makes o=up the front and back sights. This might lead you to think that the gun is mainly plastic which is far from the case since all other parts like the receiver block, bolt, top plate, barrel, rear stock, trigger and magazine are metal. This give the KWC Mini UZI its sold 4.8 pound weight. The heavy metal internal bolt really makes this blowback airgun rock when you shoot it simulating very close recoil action to a 22LR. The KWC Mini UZI for sure has the most blowback recoil out there.

If you are looking for the most bad ass and action packed full auto BB or Airsoft Gun then I would highly suggest you consider getting one of these KWC Mini UZI’s. Just be sure to have lots of CO2 and BB’s on hand because you will go through both like crazy…

My Top 5 BB Pistols for Early 2016

No Comments

In this video I feature my top five favorite BB pistols for early 2016. That said there are lots of other BB pistols I truly love and enjoy but I had to pick 5 so these are them! You may notice that many of them are blowback, I do like the blowback guns after all and this is my top 5 pick so naturally many of them will have blowback action.

Here is a list of my top 5 guns featured in this video not necessarily in order of choice:

Umarex Colt Single Action Army CO2 BB Revolver

KWC-Cybergun 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol

 Baikal MP-654K Makarov CO2 BB Pistol

ASG Bersa BP9CC CO2 Blowback BB Pistol

KWC Mini UZI and M92 Beretta 4.5mm Steel BB Full Auto Fun

2 Comments

This one is a bit of a revisit since I already did Full Auto Fun Videos for both my Cybergun GSG 92 and Cybergun Mini UZI, both of which I had to do the conversion mods (GSG 92 Full auto Mod Video - Mini UZI  Full Auto Mod Video) to allow them to shoot in full auto modes.

The good news is that out of the box the KWC Mini UZI and KWC M92 both shoot in selectable semi auto and full auto modes. And if you didn't already know, the KWC versions are virtually the same guns since KWC makes them for Cybergun. The only real difference being the KWC version does not have the licensing or white lettering on the BB guns and of course the KWC versions are full auto ready to go.

So with that said, enjoy my YouTube Full Auto Fun Video of the KWC Mini UZI and KWC M92 Full Auto ready 4.5mm Steel BB CO2 Blowback Replicas.

KWC Cybergun Mini UZI 4.5mm Steel BB Modified Full Auto Fun

2 Comments

This "Full Auto Fun" video focuses on my KWC/Cybergun 4.5mm Steel BB CO2 Blowback Mini UZI BB Gun, where I kick of a short series based around shooting a bunch of 4.5mm Steel BB machine guns! Sounds like fun cause it is fun!

This KWC/Cybergun Blowback Mini UZI comes in a variety of versions, 4.5mm Steel BB and Airsoft versions, it also comes in RWS and KWC Distributed models.

In this video I basically shoot a bunch of clay pigeons positioned in various locations and film it using 4 different camera angles to spice things up a bit.

I also mention some upcoming videos where I will be shooting my RAP4 MP5 and Baikal Drozd Blackbird Full Auto BB guns so make sure to watch those video when I upload them later on this week!

KWC Mini UZI BB Versus Airsoft Comparison Review

10 Comments

This is not meant to be a full review of either the BB or Airsoft version of the Cybergun - KWC CO2 Blowback Mini UZI's but I do talk about specifications, show you around both guns, and put them both through a full Field Test so I guess in a way, perhaps it can be considered to be a full review ;)

I will list the specifications here for you but I am not going to get into details like Trigger Pull, Build Quality, Accuracy and Realism. You can check out my other video reviews for more information on the Mini UZI:

Type: CO2 Blowback Machine gun.
Manufacturer: Cybergun - KWC.
Model: Mini UZU.
Materials: Metal and Polymer.
Weight: 4.8 pounds.
Barrel: Metal, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: BB Semi auto only - Airsoft selectable semi & full auto, single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB - 6mm Plastic Airsoft
Ammunition Capacity: 25 - 38 rounds
FPS: 350 - 400

As I said you can check out all my other videos for info on these very accurate Mini UZI Replicas, I mainly want to go over some of the main differences and similarities for both the BB and Airsoft versions.

In terms of build quality they are made almost exactly the same and weigh in at a hefty near 5 pounds, the only differences are the inner barrel and magazines to accommodate the different sized ammo. The BB version has a 25 round single stack magazine that does not have a follower to stop the bolt from continuing to operate even after the magazine is empty. While the 6mm Airsoft version has a double stack magazine that holds 38 rounds and does have a follower to stop the bolt which can save you some unintentional wasted CO2.

The Airsoft Mini UZI version is distributed by KWC while the 4.5mm BB version is distributed by Cybergun, you will find the UZI and IWI licensing on the Cybergun 4.5mm BB version but not on the KWC 6mm Airsoft version.

Out of the box the KWC Airsoft Mini UZI is ready to go in both semi auto and full auto while the 4.5mm steel BB version will only shoot in semi auto mode, it can however be easily modded to shoot in full auto.

Both guns come in cardboard boxes with manuals, some BB's and an Allen key to tighten the CO2. The KWC Airsoft Mini UZI also comes with a handy speed loader.

There is a slight fps velocity difference between the two with the KWC Airsoft 6mm plastic rounds traveling at around 400 fps (with .20 gram BB's) and the 4.5mm Steel BB's traveling at right around 350 fps. In the field test portion I test both guns out on some water filled cans to see how each ammo type performs in terms of penetration.

Your best bet is to watch both my Table Top and Field Test Comparison Video Reviews and see for yourself how they compare!

Dual Full Auto BB Machine Gun Destruction

Sometimes you just got to make a video because you can and because it's just plain old fun! And that's why I made this video of me shooting some cans with dual full auto BB machine guns. One is my full auto converted and trusted Cybergun Mini UZI and the other is my newly acquired ZMZ Tyrex PPA-K-01 Russian Machine Pistol.

So sit back and enjoy, I know I did :)

Cybergun Mini UZI CO2 BB Gun Chronograph and Full Auto Shooting Test

14 Comments

Related Posts:

Today I got my Cybergun Full Auto CO2 powered BB shooting Mini UZI out for a Chrony Chronograph test. As stated by the factory, this BB shooting Mini UZU is supposed to shoot right around 344 fps which is not bad for a true blowback airgun. And what I mean by true blowback - it's when an airgun uses some of the CO2 power to cycle the action of the gun, which cocks the firing mechanism and loads a BB all in the blink of an eye - just like a real semi auto shooter.

The Cybergun Mini UZI shot nicely between 350 and 360 fps - again, another impressive result even on a not too warm day! (10 degrees Celsius - 50 degrees fahrenheit)

I also took the opportunity to film the Cybergun Mini UZI shooting in full auto, at target while I used my high speed Casio camera to slow down what was actually happening. The result is you can really see all that's going on while you fire this dynamic air gun.

Keep in mind that the Cybergun Mini UZI does not come from the factory with the full auto feature. It is an easy mod however, and I have a video here on how to do it.

EKOL ASI UZI 9MM P.A.K. BLANK MACHINE GUN REVIEW

7 Comments

Related Posts:

Type: Blank Gun.

Manufacturer:EKOL - VOLTRAN.

Model: ASI UZI.

Materials: Plastic (Polymer) shell, metal internals.

Weight: 3.5 pounds.

Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.

Propulsion: Gun powder.

Action: Semi/Full auto single action.

Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.

Ammunition Capacity: 15 & 25 round magazines.

FPS: N/A.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull of the ASI UZI is typical of a single action semi auto gun, no hammer pull is required so it has a light to medium pull.

Accuracy: N/A.

Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my Zoraki 925 blank gun. The outer polymer shell is very durable and on the inside lives an all metal Jackal Dual. The fit and finish are very good making it hard to image this is essentially a pistol with a plastic shell wrapped around it.

Realism: The ASI UZI closely resembles the Mini UZI but is not an exact copy. It is the basic size weight and shape however.

Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Semi and Full auto makes this gun a lot of fun to shoot.
  • Very good construction, lots of internal metal parts and quality plastics on the outside.
  • Comes with both a 15 round and 25 round magazine.
  • Has a built in foregrip.
  • Would make a great prop gun as it looks like the stereotypical mini machine gun.

Cons:

  • 9mm P.A.K. Blank ammo is expensive and this gun can go through it fast!
  • Can be a bit pricey depending on where you purchase it from.
  • Comes in a cardboard box, not a plastic hard shell case.

Comments:

The EKOL ASI UZI is a blank machine gun which right there says it all! Who wouldn't want to get their hands on this and shoot a bunch of blank ammo off in full auto mode? If you don't mind paying a bit more for this luxury then the EKOL ASI blank machine gun is for you. Just make sure to buy lots of 9mm P.A.K ammo.

Cybergun - KWC Mini UZI BB Gun Full Auto Modification

39 Comments

"Before you attempt to do this modification you need to be aware that it may void your warrantee and/or you may fail and either break something or incorrectly reassemble your Mini UZI rendering it "Broked"! This is your problem so please do not attempt this modification (even though it is fairly easy to do) unless you're 100% confident you can do it and are aware of the possible consequences. Make sure to also take into account any gun laws in your area prohibiting full-auto capable firearms!"

(Special thanks to Herman for showing me the ropes on this modification)

This modification will make your semi-auto "only" Cybergun/KWC Mini UZI BB Gun into a full auto capable 4.5mm BB machine gun. From the factory the full auto switch position (Far Left "A") is disabled but the full auto selector position is visible. The actual full-auto functionality is still present in the Mini UZI but has been decommissioned by the simple means of blocking the selector switch from being moved to the far left full-auto or "A" position.

This full auto modification will show you how to disassemble the Cybergun - KWC Mini UZI BB Gun and remove the small plastic selector switch blockage so you will be able to manually switch between semi auto and full auto modes. This modification takes about 15 minutes to complete.

You will need the following tools: A pair of pliers and either a pair of small wire cutters or a file.

Let's begin! Below are the two pre-modification positions available from the factory:

"S - SAFE"

"R - SEMI AUTO"

Below is a closeup of the top bolt cover that we will be removing to access the internal bolt for removal:

In the next photo we have removed the bolt cover by pressing the "angled button" towards the rear sight:

And now the bolt is removed:

I removed the grips but this is not necessary:

Now you will need to remove the lower receiver pin located at the back end of the receiver closest to the grip safety. Use a pair of pliers to pinch the metal pin while pushing it through. Once the pin is started you can use the pliers on the other side to pull the pin all the way out. You may need to us a fair amount of force to do this as the fit of the pin is tight:

Once the pin is removed the lower receiver can be detached:

You can see in the picture below the small plastic nub that we will need to remove in order to restore full-auto capability:

I used a pair of small wire cutters to clip this plastic nub off, but you could use a file too. Just make sure that the plastic is flush and does not have any burs or protrusions.

Below is a photo of the Plastic Nub removed from another angle:

After that, all you need to do is reassemble you Mini UZI in revers order to finnish the Full Auto modification.

In the below Photos you can see we have restored the ability to move the fire selector switch over to the "Far Left" or "A" position, reenabling the Cybergun - KWC Mini UZI BB Gun to shoot in full auto when desired.

"A - FULL AUTO"

Now enjoy your Cybergun - KWC Mini UZI BB Gun in full-auto as it was originally designed!

CYBERGUN Mini UZI BB GUN REVIEW

17 Comments

Related Posts:

Type: BB air pistol.

Manufacturer: Cybergun.

Model: Mini UZU.

Materials: Metal and Polymer.

Weight: 4.8 pounds.

Barrel: Metal, non-rifled.

Propulsion: CO2 x1.

Action: Semi auto (Selectable Full Auto with Mod) blowback, single action only.

Ammunition Type: Steel BBs 4.5mm.

Ammunition Capacity: 25 rounds

FPS: 344

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull is very light with an easy break.

Accuracy: Very good, even with all the heavy blowback recoil!

Build Quality: Excellent, with a good amount of metal construction, good weight and craftsmanship with good fit and finish. Much of the gun is made out of metal with the exception of some of the outer receiver and grips.

Realism: This is a very close replica of the actual real steel with many of the same markings in all the right places, It's hard to find any real differences other than the fact that it shoots 4.5mm BB's and has a bit more plastic.

Pros:

  • Extremely realistic airgun replica of the Mini UZI.
  • Metal construction where it counts.
  • Would make an excellent training gun as it functions just like a real Mini UZI.
  • Blowback action is incredibly firm (more than a rimfire 22 cal.) adding to the realism of shooting this weapon.
  • Can be easily field striped.
  • Can be easily modified to fire in either Semi Auto or Full Auto by removing one small plastic blockage.
  • Adjustable sights.
  • Very useful metal folding stock.

Cons:

  • It goes through CO2 very fast.
  • When the magazine is empty, the slide bolt does not stay open and the gun will continue to fire waisting CO2.
  • Some of the outer materials are plastic, would have been nice if they too where metal construction.

Comments:

This is a really nice blowback BB gun. Although it is advertised on many websites as being all metal, it does have some plastic outer parts, but the parts that get the most wear and tear are made out of metal. That aside, the Cybergun Mini UZI is pretty much an exact copy of the real Mini UZI with many of the same markings as the original. One feature that makes it feel even more genuine is the very heavy blow back recoil, it is alarming at first and I would even say it has more recoil than a rimfire 22 cal. gun does. It only comes in a semi auto version but all Cybergun did to inhibit full auto mode was to simply add a plastic nub that stops the fire selector switch from being selected to full auto. Once this plastic nub is removed, full auto mode is resorted. This well made BB gun is a bit pricy but you get a lot of gun for your money!

Full Metal UZI Blowback CO2 .177 BB Gun on its Way

18 Comments

Related Posts:

I have been holding off and holding off on this gun for a while now but I just can't wait any longer! So today I finally ordered up a Full Metal UZI Blowback CO2 .177 BB Gun from the Air Gun Source here in Canada.

I'm not 100% sure who makes this full metal replica UZI BB gun but I believe it may be the Cybergun version. There seems to be identical version distributed by "Armist Industries" and "KWC", when it comes I should have more info about it. This UZI is stated to be "Full Metal" but I have heard conflicting stores and again when I get it I will update you on the quality of this nice UZI Blowback BB Gun.

These guns ship with a selector switch that has three positions: (A-R-S), one is the safety and the other two are semi-auto only. This gun does not ship with a full-auto feature but I have a  source who has converted his to full auto and he is sharing this information with me shortly. I plan to mod mine so it has a selectable semi auto and full auto.

This gun is reported to have a very heavy blow back action with significant shoulder kick for a BB gun. Sounds like fun! It has also been chronographed at 390 FPS! And it even comes with a folding Stock.

Here are some basic stats for you until I do my full review...

  • 344 FPS*OUR TESTS SHOW 390 FPS!
  • Full metal
  • Blowback action
  • Semi-auto
  • Removable 25 round magazine
  • Foldable metal stock
  • Uses one 12g CO2 cartridge
  • .177 calibre (4.5mm) BB's
  • Length: 14"
  • Weight: 4.85 lbs
  • 30 Day Warranty
  • Made in Taiwan
