    I'm looking towards getting a smaller caliber assault rifle or submachine gun. Narrowed it down to an AK74 in the 5.45 or the Uzi with the 9mm. Any thoughts?

    There both great...im a big uzi fan but there kinda rough shooting unless you get the full wood stock them rails in the folding stock aren't to comfy....if you don't mind the size I would get the ak74 its a great round...

    Well, for starters unless you get a fully automatic AK74 or Uzi they're not considered "Assault Rifles/Machineguns". By definition a Machinegun is, "Any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be
    readily restored to shoot, automatically
    more than one shot, without manual reloading,
    by a single function of the trigger.
    The term shall also include the frame or
    receiver of any such weapon, any part
    designed and intended solely and exclusively,
    or combination of parts designed
    and intended, for use in converting a
    weapon into a machine gun, and any
    combination of parts from which a machine
    gun can be assembled if such parts
    are in the possession or under the control
    of a person."

    I realize a machine gun and assault rifle are full auto. This isn't my first time around the block with guns

    Back the truck up. Is your BUG a 9mm?

    The only issue I have with the UZI is

    accuracy, which actually isn't bad, considering

    the design and barrel length.

    If you get an UZI, and your sidearm is a Beretta, Glock, or CZ75,

    you can share ammo with your pistol.

    That said, I generally prefer the AK...

    Thats like apples to oranges lol
    The Ak-74 has a devastating round and is almost as accurate as a 223 plus really cheap to shoot.
    the UZI I am a fan of the IMI ones that are not all long barreled and stupid like the ones century have for sale. They have a lot of problem I bought one Century never again.

    I wouldn't condemn Century because of a couple of bad apples,

    in all fairness, it IS a large barrel. Did you go back to their CS

    and ask for help on the issue? Bad service could bury ANY

    company.

    What exactly are the qualities that are important to you? I like the UZI, but I also like the AK and it's variants, so this is a hard choice. I don't envy your situation.

    The UZI fires a very common round.
    The AK fires a not quite as common, but still really cheap round.
    Both are durable.
    The AK exhibits more devastating ballistics
    AK likely more accurate at longer ranges.
    Cool factor for both are phenomenal.
    Both would make a home invader crap their pants.


    I think ceteris parabis, I would get the UZI just because the ammo could be found at most any local Wal Mart that still carries ammo.

    Yeah I'm mainly looking to turn heads at the range with a more "exotic" looking gun and to be a good HD gun

    For HD, I'd have to take the UZI, but not with that

    ridiculous compliance barrel.

    For inside a structure, I'd rather have a pistol, anyway.

    HD is important for this choice. Personally I don't like rifles for HD, I live in an apartment and penetration is a very important factor for me. But that's me, situation and mileage will vary.

    I have a UZI and a AK-47 and they are both great but if you are going to choose between the 2 get the AK-47.

    BTW I have 4 Century arms guns including the UC-9 UZI and have had good luck with all of them. The only problem I have had with the UZI is it doesn't like to cycle 115 grain 9mm. Stick with 125 and you will be fine.
