Customer Reviews for Umarex UZI Carbine CO2 Blowback Steel BB Machine Gun

Brand: Umarex Canada

Type: BB Pistol
Manufacturer: KWC
Model: Mini UZI
Materials: Metal and Polymer
Weight: 2177 g (4.8 lb)
Barrel: Metal, Smoothbore
Power Source: CO2
Action: Semi-Automatic/Full-Automatic, Blowback, Single Action Only
Ammo Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs
Ammuo Capacity: 25 Rounds
FPS: 344

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull is very light with an easy break.

Accuracy: Very good, even with all the heavy blowback recoil!

Build Quality: Excellent, with a good amount of metal construction, good weight and craftsmanship with good fit and finish. Much of the gun is made out of metal with the exception of some of the outer receiver and grips.

Realism: Looks and feels like a real gun. It's hard to find any real differences other than the fact that it shoots 4.5mm BBs and has a bit more plastic than similar full-metal pistols.

Pros:

  • Extremely realistic airgun replica of the Mini UZI
  • Metal construction where it counts
  • Would make an excellent training gun as it functions just like a real Mini UZI
  • Blowback action is incredibly firm (more than a rimfire 22 cal.) adding to the realism of shooting this weapon
  • Can be easily field striped
  • Poweful full-auto firing mode
  • Adjustable sights
  • Very useful metal folding stock

Cons:

  • It goes through CO2 very fast
  • When the magazine is empty, the slide bolt does not stay open and the gun will continue to fire wasting CO2
  • Some of the outer materials are plastic, would have been nice if they too where metal construction

Comments: This is a really nice blowback BB gun. Although it is advertised on many websites as being all metal, it does have some plastic outer parts, but the parts that get the most wear and tear are made out of metal. That aside, the KWC Mini UZI is pretty much an exact copy of the real Mini UZI with many of the same markings as the original. One feature that makes it feel even more genuine is the very heavy blow back recoil, it is alarming at first and I would even say it has more recoil than a rim fire .22 caliber gun does!

Truly awesome for the price, great accuracy, intense full auto!

When I purchased the profile online said semi auto blowback. Well...mine is also full auto which is awesome! I did not have to mod mine. It is way louder than I expected it to be and I've been shooting airguns all my life. It really has some recoiling effect, way more than most bb guns with blowbak. I also have the umarex mp40 and this one is almost as awesome as that one. It shoots pretty accurately less than 2 inch groups, great trigger also. Nice weight, peep sights, adjustable front sight (elevation). You get about 2 mags per co2 with this it seems. The folding stock is also functional and for me its just the right length. Full auto is insane. I didn't expect it to be as awesome as it is in that regard, and I have shot full auto bb guns before. This one is seriously just something else. One small quarrel I have with it is that the entire handle, grips and trigger guard are plastic. If you drop this there is a realistic possibility of severely cracking the handle or breaking the trigger guard. I'm generally one to take good care of my airguns, so I probably won't drop it. Much of the rest is metal though which is a plus. But honestly I'm almost willing to overlook this because of how awesome it is to shoot. My only other small complaint is that the slide won't lock on the last shot so if you are in full auto it will keep shooting even with no bb's which is kind of annoying since you don't know when it's out. But overall it's a great gun at this price. If you aren't sure just go for it. Just be careful with it, and you'll find it awesome to shoot. Most full auto guns that do have better construction than this tend to cost up to a hundred bucks or more than this model. I've heard a rumor that you can buy aftermarket parts for this that are steel or aluminum to replace the external plastic parts. This is most certainly something I am going to look into asap. Anyway, great gun overall - five stars for accuracy and how fun it is to shoot and for being a realistic replica.
