The Uzi from GTA Vice City

Uzi 9mm/Uz-I, or also called the Micro-SMG or Uzi, is a powerful submachine gun that made appearances in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Grand Theft Auto IV, and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

The gun is called the Micro-SMG in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, Uzi 9mm in the Playstation 2 version of GTA Vice City and called the Uz-I in other versions of the game. Every rendition of the UZI holds 30 rounds per magazine.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV, the UZI is a civilan-legal pistol version of the IWI Micro-Uzi sub-machine gun, but it called the Micro SMG in the games.

Involvement in GTA San Andreas

The Uzi was intended to be featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. There is a beta screenshot of the Grove Street Families members preforming a drive-by with the Uzi. There are no reasons why the gun was removed from the game, but the gun had the same firing animation as the Uzi from GTA Vice City. The final version features a Micro Uzi instead of the Uzi 9mm that is featured in Vice City.
