THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Uzi Manufacturers Striving to Increase Gun's Popularity

You wouldn't give one as
a gift.
And you wouldn't have
one for breakfast.
- Nevertheless, the Uzi
submachine gun, like the
diamond and the orange, is
one of Israel's most sought
after export items.
However, keeping the
30-year-old gun at the top

of arms buyers' lists is not
an easy job, according to
Zvi Yarom, head of Israel
Military Industries' small
arms factory. Yarom is
the cousin of Detroiter
Max Nosanchuk.
Uzi sales, which had
quadrupled since 1973,
have shown no growth over
tlT past two years. "We

need to encourage people to
buy something new,"
Yarom explained.
So, IMI has introduced a
civilian, semi-automatic
version of the military
weapon. This version is sold
to consumers and collectors
in the United States. A
"mini-Uzi" is also being de-
veloped, according to

Yarom.
The Uzi, first produced in
the 1950s, is popular with
paratroopers and special se-
curity units. No other
weapon combines the com-
pact size (25 inches in
length, with a weight of
eight pounds) and durabil-
ity of the Uzi. The gun will
fire even if the barrel is
jammed with sand.
The weapons, which cost
about $350 each, have been
used by the Elysee Guard in
France, the Buckingham
Palace Guard in Britain and
Secret Service agents in the
U.S.
