UK vz. 59 machine gun overview

The UK vz. 59 is an abbreviation for Univerzální kulomet vzor 59 and this translates to Universal Machine Gun model 1959.   In addition, the name of this machine gun is routinely shortened to UK-59.  It is a right hand belt fed machine gun utilizing non-disintegrating metallic 50 round link belts.  50 round belts can be connected to make for any length belt.  For cyclic rate, weight, velocity and more, please scroll down the page for Technical Specifications. 

Be sure to check out our videos to the left for detailed information on the UK vz. 59 and UK vz. 59L machine gun.  Dan Brown visited the Czech Republic to inspect the machine guns and shot video to provide information on these unique guns.   The UK-59 is still in service today with the armed forces of the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic - a real testament to the UK-59 design and reliability!
