Our Assessment: The Century Arms Centurion UC-9 is a semi-automatic rifle inspired by the famous Uzi submachine gun, which was originally designed by Major Uziel Gal in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The Uzi gained widespread acclaim for its compact design, reliability, and ease of use, becoming a popular firearm for military, law enforcement, and civilian applications worldwide. The Centurion UC-9 brings the iconic design into the hands of civilian shooters in a semi-automatic configuration. The Centurion UC-9 is chambered in 9mm, a caliber known for its manageable recoil, affordability, and widespread availability. Constructed with a steel receiver, the Centurion UC-9 is built to be durable and reliable, echoing the robustness of the original Uzi design. The rifle features a 16-inch barrel, which is significantly longer than the original Uzi submachine gun barrel, to comply with U.S. regulations for civilian rifles. The rifle includes a top-mounted charging handle, a feature that is both functional and a nod to the original design. The iron sights are also similar to those found on the Uzi, with a protected front post and an adjustable rear aperture, providing a reliable and straightforward aiming system. Magazine compatibility is another highlight of the Centurion UC-9. The rifle is designed to use standard Uzi magazines, which are readily available and also provides a range of capacity options, typically from 20 to 32 rounds, depending on the magazine used. Safety features on the Centurion UC-9 include a manual safety selector which allows the shooter to securely engage and disengage the safety as needed and a grip safety. Whether for recreational shooting, home defense, or just having fun with a cool range toy, the Centurion UC-9 offers a reliable and nostalgic shooting experience.
