The more we work with the UZI, the more we appreciate it for close range semi-proactive applications, and for PDW duties. And as we watch our various students operating the weapon, we identify those areas where it can be made better than it is.
We have seen UZI before with red dot sights, but quite frankly, the red dot sights that have been affixed to these Israeli weapons are abject trash suitable perhaps for an airsoft kid's toy, but not for a serious fighting tool. When we were searching for a red dot that was strong enough for our pistol program we absolutely discounted all of the units on the market except for the Trijicon RMR. Yet nobody had made a mount for this top shelf RDS....that has been remedied.
This TSD Combat Systems UZI/RMR Top Cover Unit comes affixed to the UZI top cover, and provides complete cowitness capability through the rear sights. It takes the Trijicon RMR, and only the Trijicon RMRs. The top cover and mount are welded together and then finished in black powdercoat. This gives the UZI SMG/Carbine a capability heretofore unseen in a PDW. Precise shots are possible beyond what was possible with iron sights only. Read what the RDS application has done for the handgun, and then imagine what it is capable of with an additional two points of contact as provided by the UZI.
Another area we moved into is the charging handle. Not an issue for many, but if the shooter is small in stature or lacking in physical strength...or even if they simply want a less cluttered sight picture, this TSD Combat Systems UZI Charging Handle is what they need.
Made of hardened steel, and black powdercoated, it is totally ambidextrous and can be mounted to the right or the left of the SMG.
It is contoured and scalloped in design to accomodate a finger, or two depending on hand size. It is totally devoid of any sharp edges and as comfortable to use as possible.
Finally, the thing needed for the SMG is a modernized magazine. Our TSD Combat Systems UZI Mag is a finished in black melonite. Eqipped with new springs, the magazine also has a follower that is dehorned and finished in our prorietary AquaTerra finish, making the entire magazine impervious to any environmental conditions, but also equipped with a follower that has extremely lubrious properties, insuring reliability.
Between the great UZI packages offered by One Source Tactical, and the exciting new products being brought out by TSD Combat Systems, there has never been a better time to move into the UZI platform.
