Armalites are boat anchors, I bought my first one in the late 1990s and the disconnect broke on the first outing, Armalite fixed it then that same rifle developed blow-by at the gas block within 500rds and I got that fixed and quickly put it on consignment on a gunshop wall.

I recently had a buddy buy one despite my warnings(Internet Commandoes Told him To) and his upper is back at Armalite as we speak because the broken bolt is stuck in the barrel extension and the weapon cannot be repaired locally.

Despite all of the bad press the gun snobs put out I don't hear these same kind of horror stories about Remington/Bushmaster/DPMS 308 ARs.

I pray every Hajji and Violent Wingnut in the world falls in love with Armalite AR-10 Rifles!

What's your "never buy" gun?
A poly hand gun. Any poly hand gun. They offend my sense of aesthetics. They offend my sense of history. But I have synthetic stocked shotguns and rifles.
No one said emotional decisions were logical ones.

My S&W Sigma. All around piece of s*it. Bought it for $50. Almost worth the price.

There are no bad guns! There are crazy people that get their hands on them and do horrible things, but it's better than fighting back with a rock or a hammer.

Any Diamond Back pistol. Had one and it could not even feed a full mag without malfunctioning.

Another Ruger LC anything.

I just can't stand plastic guns. Give me a Browning HP, or 1911, with wood grips.

I took my polymer taurus to a ghetto and four brothers beat me up. They don't like honkies, or plastic guns. Then I went to the Mexican barrio, and they threw my taurus in a dumpster.

I will never buy:

a firearm just for its looks over another one that functions as well.

People that hate the glock because it is "ugly" really confuse me. Is a handgun for showing off at the range and taking pictures of, or is it for protecting yourself and family in case of emergency?

This is the type of divide and conquer tactic that anti's use every day.

They'll say "Well we're not after your hunting rifle or pistol with legitimate sporting uses."

The problem is that they decide what is legitimate and what isn't. Your idea of a legitimate hunting rifle is probably in line with what anti gun people tried to ban years ago as "high powered sniper rifles".

As long as people exist who say, "go ahead and take theirs but don't touch mine" in the firearms community the restrictions will get worse.

I'm not a real 1911 or AR-15 fan, although I can't really say I'd NEVER buy one if either were a last-resort type of purchase.

H&K PSG-1 not because I dislike it but because new it cost more than some new cars and I can't afford ether. $30,000 will buy allot of guns for the price of that one gun.

Any Glock. Never cared for them. I have shot many, but cannot grow to like them.

biggest hater thread ever....LOL...just had to skip to the end and post something.

I guess If I am going to put something out there......it's a Taurus Millennium Pro Titanium

I had light strikes...sent it back...light strikes....sold at a gun show.....

It was my first gun and probably my last Taurus....although they may make something one day....but I have little confidence....
All generalizations are false, including this one.

The butt-ugliest gun of all time, the Nylon 66, otherwise known as a plastic 22. Can't believe it is actually a collector's item. That's like the skid mark on a gun owners underwear; we all got 'em, but we don't show 'em off.

Well, wouldn't you know it...
They didn't mark the SS PPK's with any nazi proofs. The telling is in the serial numbers and location of said numbers.
Come to find out I now own a genuine variation 6 WW2 SS ppk.
Don't quiet know how I feel about that, since I'm of Polish descent and have family that were murdered in Europe during that period. Guns are just tools though. Apparently its worth some money, even without the original grips and no magazine.

I don't know that there are any guns that I say I'd never buy, hell...after shooting my brother in laws hipoint, I kind of want one now.
Heck, I would love to shoot that WW2 Japanese pistol that had the exposed sear, I believe...the one that would go off if touched wrong.
I'd own just about any gun as long as it wasn't illegal for me to own, and wasn't dangerous to shoot.
