Title says it all. Any reviews on the UZI made by CAI?

I have one and I think I got lucky. It runs great, never jammed with any kind of ammo I tried. It only has about 400 rounds yet. Finish wasnt too bad.

Many thanks. I was looking into getting one and SBRing it. I do wish they made them in .45.

Sounds like every one that has replied , has one that works .

My advice is , unless Century's workmanship has improved ( an it may have ? ) , be very , very , very careful when buying a gun put together by Century .

Out of 3 I have had hands on experience with , one has run correctly . It was bought known good from a friend .

God bless

Same here. I've had a lot of experience with Century guns in the past. I currently have a perfect running WASR 10 and a Yugo M70. In the past I have had a FAL which I had to get rid of thanks to Century quality but other than that I have been lucky.My latest purchase from Century is a AK74 Bulgarian. No issues and runs great. Although the furniture was total crap. Some KVAR Bulgarian poly took care of that.

The UZI I think will be the next in the list of Century guns to test ones luck out on.

you all need to check the restrictor ring inside the reciever so see if the bolt is peening it over, thats what happened with mine. But I got one when they 1st came out... Got a vector instead

why would you ever SBR anything made by century when there are so many other alternatives available? 6 months ago you could get IMI guns for under $1k although they seem to have gone up a bit. But you can always get Vectors for around $750.

Personally, an SBR UZI is still to big for what it is. Get a mini or even better, a micro if you can scrounge the parts.

The way I understand it is that Century does not in fact make any or at least most of these rifles but rather contracts them out to be built by others. That is why the large variation in quality of Century guns, have you heard anybody say their Yugos don't run?

Sure, you are limited by the parts that Century sends you I mean you can't polish a turd, but some will be good (Yugos) and some will be bad (Tantals). The Uzi is really a pretty simple design and I would think pretty hard to screw up but when I went looking I stumbled into a factory SBR Vector on the EE for $800 so I went that route since I was going to SBR it anyway. I would give the Century a try but what do I know...I had a Norinco too.

I only get NFA items I intend to keep forever... I tracked down a real sterling to replace the wiselite. Even though wiselite built it, it still has its fair share of issues.

There was a guy on Sterm that was selling carbines for $700 but I don't know if he still has them or a link for them. I think I might have his e-mail and can forward you his info if you would like.

Mine is a factory SBR that was NIB that I picked up from a guy on the EE. You can check Atlantic Firearms as well. I know I ordered parts from Vector a while back but I'm not sure if they are still making complete guns.

The one I handled didn't look so hot. Finish wasn't quite there. Taking the barrel nut off and removing the barrel let the barrel nut catch and spring fall out in my hand. Should be held captive.

What is involved with making an Uzi SBR? Could some one please tell me. I have a AOW (Serbu Super Shorty) but now I'd like an SBR.

Oh to the OP.

Seems to work with Corbon DPX.

The question is why would anyone want one? They retail for $999. Vector Arms retails for about $845. For that $155 you can buy a lot of magazines.

He wanted to dry fire it, so yeah he's pulling the trigger aiming at a box. Under strick supervision, he even checked the chamber himself prior to trying it. Lighten up people.

Real easy, do the Form 1 paperwork. Send the receiver out to be engraved. When the paperwork comes back, send out the barrel to be shortened. Assemble it. You only need to decide if you want it classic pattern unthreaded 10.2 inch barrel with or wothout threads, or like mine shortened to the nut and threaded.

Yup just unscrew the barrel retaining nut and the barrel pulls out.

The form 1 paperwork looks even more simple than my first AOW. Speaking of paperwork, I called the Pittsburgh ATFE office and asked for the proper paperwork to SBR. It showed up in ONE day! Called on a Tuesday, received it WEDNESDAY. BTW, it's nice to know the Sheriff will sign the paperwork. Do you need to send the barrel out to be shortened, or can you just buy the shorter barrel that many people sell and put it on? Engraving? What's involved? I'm in the middle of PA and don't know of anyone who does this. Of course I could look it up in the phone book or google it.
