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!
