I had a Universal years back. They are a civilian market production gun. It had feed issues a lot, even with really good magazines. Actually, they were known for that. I would make sure you have a good feeding one before going hunting with it. Otherwise, why not? I have killed a lot of deer that were already wounded and found a lot more already dead. I do most of my hunting in PA where semi-autos are not legal to hunt with, so I would venture to guess that none were shot with a .30 carbine. I am thinking 30-30 as the deer wound and lose rifle of all time. I may be wrong. Let us know how you make out.
