    The method used in the semi-auto Uzi variants uses two springs. and an "axial" / linear striker.

    Food for thought?

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    The general idea

    This will give you the concept

    The sear in these semi-auto Uzis only acts on the linear striker, NOT the bolt, which is free to close after each shot. To "really" avoid "Rock 'n' Roll", carefully machine off the flange / collar from the side of the bolt-face that faces the magazine. This will mean that the case heads will slide across the bolt-face instead of "jumping back in" as the round chambers. IF something goes awry and the sear mech fails to rise into place, something interesting happens. Because the striker fully-forward, the head of a following round, stripped from the mag, will collide with the striker and the gun will stop.

    Keep us posted.

    I got it going! Thanks for the help. I replaced the sear with a stamped one which is wider and easier to catch.
