So, my past expierence was already told. http://www.thefiringline.com/NonCGI/Forum4/HTML/000311.html
Short Version:
Bought RBP 1/2 x10 threaded barrel for my Vector Uzi.
Didn't work, and sent it back.

Update:
I received a new barrel, with locking nut two weeks to the day from when I sent the barrel to RPB.

I took it to the Range this past weekend.
Fit - PERFECTLY.
Ran - 550+ Rds without a problem. Then a single light primer strike. The ammo was VERY dirty and the Uzi had "gunk" all in it, but still went through another 100+ rds without a problem. (Then I was out of ammo.)

I considered it a GREAT success. The gun ran beautifully and was nice and quite. Not as nice or quite as the MP5SD than we also rented, but for 1/3 the price very nice. The MP5 fires from a closed bolt so, it's not a *fair* comparison. But, you could fire both without ear protection in an indoor range. By far the loudest sound for both of them was the Lead hitting the still backdrop.
(The HK started jamming after about 300 rds. Dirty, dirty ammo.)

Very, Very, Very, COOL.

Just thought people might like to know.
