    For myself it was the AMT backup 22lr . The gun jammed about every other shot . Even with stingers it would still jam .

    A Para-Ordnance LDA single stack .45 ACP. I still have it. Its SD role- give it to the bad guy, while he's trying to figure out how to get it to shoot, crack him in the head with a stick.

    the two most unreliable autos i've ever had were the (1)cheapest and (2) the most expensive. ironic, eh? the cheapest was an FIE .22, chamber was oversized so brass would split and cause extraction woes. the most expensive was an original Pasadena model Automag, but hey you don't buy an Automag for reliablility :)

    My Daewoo DP51 is getting really bad. I think it just needs springs though. I know it needs mag springs, but I don't know where to get them. As for the other springs? I don't know where to get those either. No worries. Other guns to shoot.

    The worst for feeding was the S&W Mod 39.

    I gave the company the benefit of the doubt though, and tried the 645 when it came out... halfway through the second magazine, it was as if the gun exploded in my hands. A spent case went one direction, the front site went another, and the decocking lever went a third.

    I've never bought another Smith autoloader.

    "What does this mean?"

    It looked like a glock, but it definitely was not. It belonged to one of my brothers freinds, I think he said he payed 100.00 for it new. Can't remember who made it though.

    S&W P99 Compact. Way way too easy to "limp wrist" and cause a jam. Not the sort of thing I wanted for a CCW. Very dissapointed in S&W on that one. Sold it.

    Kimber CDP, or whatever they call their 4" melted version... it was a true jam-o-matic, and Kimber could not fix it even with 2 trips back to them.

    S&W sigma....darn thing would not strike the primer hard enough to fire. Also it had a tendency to shoot the burning hot shell RIGHT into your face.
