Folks I have been asked by the importers to see if any of you sports gun rimfire shooters would be interested that Sporting Services are thinking of importing the Umarex Uzi in .22LR and ask anyone interested to give us a ring? I need to have 10 confirmed orders before he gets the go ahead with this and I figured ARRSErs would be keen!







The price will be £605 retail inc VAT. We’ll do a trade discount but would prefer to sell retail!!

Interesting, to say the least - See - SHOT Show 2012: Umarex UZI .22 LR - YouTube

Personally, I'd love one, but I'm already two guns over the limit in my county...

I'm sure they'll sell like fast-selling things, even at the enormously inflated and rip-off UK price tag that I'm sure is not your fault, but that of the governmental policy of making everything at least twice as expensve here as it really should be.

I've always found it very odd that stuff like this, made in Germany [an EU trading partner less than 250 miles away] costs around 60% of the UK price in far-off Oregon, almost 6500 miles away and in a non-trading partner country...

Euro 469 retail in Germany, about 375 quid

Well thats then a failing of your national organisation (assuming you are a member) to fight for the rights of shooters in that county to be served by the law not persecuted by it.

Not being picky at all tac, just trying a little humour and goodness knows it seems to be needed in 'your' county.

It really pisses me off when police persons make up the law as they see fit. As to ACPO, don't get me started: unelected, unaccountable, unwanted. A lot of their pontification is the Home Office's responsibility - not theirs. Why do Home Secretaries allow it? They'd be up in arms if the TUC (as the coordinating body of most trade unions) took it upon themselves to make law. (Oops! I just noticed you did get me started. Nuff said.)

BTW, I agree with Ugly. If it was 'my' county, I'd be on to to BASC like a rocket. I probably wouldn't bother with tht NRA. I asked the new Police Liaison bloke for help with licensing weeks ago and he hasn't even bothered to response to my voicemail.

Right, so what's the story with the stock then? Welded or folding?
I'll ask what the UK format is, however there is nothing in law preventing use of a folding stock on a .22 rifle. There may be a fuss but its no worse than on a 10/22 or a telescoping one!

Ok lets cut the asides on plod (a quick one is acpo gets disbanded under the Winsor reforms!) and lets start asking who wants one enough to order?

Hmmm, just Googled them and it appears they may have monged them up with a massive pretend-moderator as part of the barrel.

Not for me, ta.

Oh I dont know, I'm sure it would be fun even with a big mod on the front! I think it would make a nights lamping a bit south central!

Apologies to ALL for the thread drift - I've deleted my maunderings.

Moving on, as Ugly shows, with its long barrel/moderator, it appears to be a rifle, and not an LBR - so that's all just fine and dandy then.

I look forward to seeing them at my club sometime.

Best

A quick e mail later and the DS solution is;
"It'll be the folding stock, waiting to hear from Walther whether it'll be an extended barrel or fake moderator-extended barrel.




I would have thought fake moderator but I'm not 100%!"
So there you go!

A quick chat with the importer and I'm waiting on the barrel length details and its apparently a plain barrel without a fake suppressor! No pics either as its being made for our market and not yet built!

It's a standard latter day public sector/gunmint tactic for washing its hands of proper accountability: slope shoulders in the direction of an unelected 'expert' and 'professional' body. Robothan used it 2 weeks ago, in the 2RRF disbandment debate, arguing that the final decision was taken 'by the Army', and was thus 'out of the hands of government'.

Not a single desk anywhere marked "Buck Stops Here".
