Orphaned references in Uzi[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Uzi's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "Jones":

  • From Beretta Model 38: Jones, Richard (2009). Jane's Infantry Weapons 2009-2010. Jane's Information Group. pp. 894–905. ISBN 0-7106-2869-2.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 15:40, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Uzi. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Use by US Secret Service[edit]

In the article Attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan, the fourth photo in the lede photo montage definitely depicts a person holding an Uzi -- See here:

Vacca gun[edit]

@Mike Searson: Vacca gun was not a military weapon, it was a Post-86 Dealer Sample converted from a semiautomatic rifle. Thanks for correcting that. Is there a reliable source we can use for that? Aside from Vacca's shooting, the conversion of civilian versions to full auto is a worthwhile topic. Felsic2 (talk) 19:03, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

A specific source stating that? Probably not. According to the Mother Jones piece, a transfer tax was paid, meaning it was not a dealer sample (where no tax is paid), so I may have misspoke about it being a postie, in that it is (or was) transferable. Every transferable Full Auto Uzi in the US (and that includes minis and micros) are conversion guns made from semiautomatic rifles imported by Action Arms/IMI/KY Imports etc. GCA 68 prohibited importation of machineguns with the exception of military and police use (aka a pre-May dealer sample). FOPA 86 prohibited new conversions/manufacture with the exception of military and police use. The mini was not imported as a machinegun with the exception of a few for police military evaluation, these would not be able to be owned by a civilian on a form 4. To give an example on pricing: a pre-May Dealer sample IMI marked factory made subgun would be quite expensive ($14K and up) a postie would be worth maybe 1/5 of that and a pre-86 conversion gun would probably push toward $20K. It would probably be more useful as a subsection in an NFA article than here. I will see if this has been published in something like Small Arms Review or a similar NFA publication.--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 19:43, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
So would it have been a "Mini-Uzi carbine", which is listed under "Civilian variants"? Felsic2 (talk) 15:36, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Correct, but one that had been legally converted to a machine gun prior to May 18, 1986, if what that source is reporting is true.--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 16:11, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
What sources? Felsic2 (talk) 15:52, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
That would be the Mother Jones piece: [1].--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 16:25, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
I don't think they're referring to the specific gun in question. They seem to be discussing the issue of obtaining automatic weapons in general. Unless there's a specific source contradicting the information, I'll restore the edit. Felsic2 (talk) 20:11, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
