Hello I am new to this forum and I just wanted to post a review and impressions on century's UC-9 Carbine. First before I purchased this carbine, I went online and read every review, post, and article possible on the gun. The majority of what I found were people who had not owned or fired the gun, but had negative reviews about it because of the company involved in putting together the firearm (Century Arms.) While I am not a Century Arms fan nor am I employed by Century, I am a gun enthusiast. So when I seen the UC-9 at my local firearms dealer I was intrigued. At the time my firearms dealer also had a used IMI Uzi and i compared the two but because of my budget, I could not spend the money on it. So I took a chance on the UC-9 and after taking the gun apart and examining the internal and external parts, inspecting for errors, the gun looked good. The gun looked so good in fact, my father purchased one for himself. So impatiently we waited. We wanted to know were some of the negative reviews and opinions we read about this firearm true. Did Century produce another epic fail ? Are there actually drunken monkeys assembling their products? Can Century Arms successfully assembly a working firearm that is suppose to function correctly? Well this morning my father and I finally went out the the range and the result were quite positive. We fired 200 rounds out of both UC-9s. Neither of us never shot a uzi before and the recoil was almost unnoticeable. Both firearms were accurate out to 50 yards and the long, funny, Pinocchio 16 in. barrel helps. We tested 115 grain federal ammo and 115 grain Tula ammo both cheap and both guns ate it up. Our only complaint about the whole experience was the magazines. While they did feed perfectly, they are so damn hard to squeeze ammo into. Our thumbs were numb and the chilly, windy conditions did not it help. We definitely will invest in magazine loaders. Overall it was a good time and we are pleased with our investment and the results. I did not post any pictures of our targets but the groups were fairly close together, but I would of liked to sighted the gun in but because of the cold I was just trying to get through the ammo. I posted pics of both the uzis below and if anyone has in questions regarding the UC-9 or want to know more about my experience with the weapon I will gladly answer any questions.
