Based upon the combat proven and well respected Israeli sub-machine gun design developed by Uziel Gal in the 1950's, the 9x19mm Centurion UC-9 Carbine is a semi-automatic only, folding steel stock, straight blow back operation, closed bolt carbine. The charms of the basic design are numerous, namely offering a compact and handy pistol caliber carbine in a rock solid, reliable package. Feeding from an all steel, double column magazine, the Centurion UC-9 Carbine offers a historical collectability and a lot of shooting fun.

Starting with the good.
There is plenty of that, because my carbine is a keeper. Matter of fact, because of the quick take down barrel and folding stock I'm making mine a trunk gun with a modified foam padded carry case.
It is very reliable indeed. I have ran well over 500 rounds by now without one flaw. Shooting P HP and even sub sonic. Very accurate too, shredding a nice 2 inch hole at 50 yards with the iron sights. It came with 2 mags, 1 25 rounder and a 32. Both work great. I would recommend this firearm indeed. Fit a finish were excellent with a nice clean shiny bore.

Now for the bad. This list is short and not a deal breaker for me, but more of an annoyance. There are 2 models of UZI, Model A and B. There are semi and full auto parts available on the market as well. Sourcing these parts are not difficult and reasonably priced too.
Thats the set up, here's the pitch. My gun came with mismatched parts in 2 ways. The first are the sights. I have a model A front sight with model B Rear sight. The front sight will be swapped out soon for a model B, because in my mind it's superior. With that I'm sure I can get that ragged hole a little smaller.
Now for the most annoying part. The top cover on mine is manufactured for a full auto UZI. How bad can this be? Well it's a ratcheting cover with a longer charging slot. So if you go to chamber a round, you can get the bolt stuck in the rear position quite easily. This requires you to pop off the top cover while the charging handle is to the rear. This in turn slams the bolt forward. Making you start over again. The semi auto version has no ratchet teeth and a shorter slot. This was a cheap fix replacing the top cover for $17 shipped.

Over all Very happy with this firearm and Buds Service. I did get caught up in a shipping delay but hey, it was a week before Christmas and I'm sure Buds was swamped. They still got it to me 2 days before Christmas day! Great service!

I love the UC9!! I'm a 70's child so I grew up with snake eyes on GI Joe who had one. A pleasure to shoot. Awesome looks and quality is good. My 12 year old shoots it like a 22. Great conversation piece. Like a newborn baby, everyone wants to hold it! Buds was fantastic as usual. Even during weather and holiday weekend.

I purchased this Uzi clone from Bud's back in July of 2014. Since then I've put over a thousand rounds of both good and cheap quality 9mm through it without a single malfunction. The firearm itself runs flawlessly. The only real negative, as previously mentioned by another reviewer, for the UC-9 is that the front sight is basically garbage and unless you just want a fun range toy to play with (and there's nothing wrong with that!) then you'll want to replace it.

Super fun gun!

Received in good shape; most components appear to be new. It was very tight and dry. After disassembly and lubrication I fired about 150 rds with a couple of failures probably due to the stiffness of the action and lightweight (115 grn) ammo. 124 grn ammo is recommended by most Uzi shooters. I'm very happy with this and I'm sure after break-in it will be very reliable. It is very heavy (9 lbs) and has minimal recoil, very pleasurable to shoot. Smooth transaction from Bud's as usual.

4 or 5th purchase from buds. Shipping has always been good, but this time it was GREAT ordered on 08/18/2015 and was at my FFl on 08/20/2015!
My UC9 came with two mags, a 25rd and 32rd.
The finish and fit of the rifle was beyond my expectations. Took it to the range today, and was also surprised by the function and accuracy. I was told to run the gun " wet" so I cleaned and well lubed it before the trip. It ran 100% reliable with cheap 115gr ammo ( wolf and tula).
It is heavy, but for me that is kinda half the appeal ( its a vintage design and I was not looking for polymer)its not a turn off for me. Recoil is hardly felt due to the caliber and even more offset by the weight of the gun.
I really have no complaints about the gun at this point. Would highly recommend.
