Re: Uzi variations

Check out the shape & thickness of the sights.. Palitoy weapons seemed to be made from a different type of plastic than Hasbro's, it's more like a flexible polythene with a waxy feel than the harder grey of G.I. Joe... it's hard to describe but you can certainly feel a difference & A.F. weap...

Re: Uzi variations

I've noticed different types of plastic used in the Uzi's produced by Palitoy & Hasbro. I guess, like anything, factors such as different production lines, material suppliers or even age & storage conditions would come into play. Not trying to get Hopper all over excited, but, I've notice mi...

Hi Paul.
