    Got the idea for this thread from the gun-bashing thread below.
    What are some guns that you have never heard anybody bash ? In other words , what gun has nobody got anything bad to say about it ?
    Personally, I've never heard anything bad said about a Browning High Power or a Marlin 39 .22 rifle. Seems like everybody likes the old Colt Woodsman .22 pistols as well. What others have you never heard a bad word about ?

    Nope. People bash BHP's because they're snooty. (The guns, not the people.) Or overpriced (which at this point in time is true, sadly).

    If it's been talked about on a gun board it's been slammed on a gun board at some point.

    As long as there is such a thing as "personal preference," there will be bashing.

    No matter how good a firearm is, someone will find fault with it.


    Unless we live in Soviet Russia. Then...

    Soldier 1 - "All Russian firearms are perfect in every way!"

    Soldier 2 --"But this darn AK isn't very accurate"

    Soldier 1 -"What!? That sounded like a capitalist remark...execute him!"

    Mauser 98. Perfection of the bolt action rifle. Mind you, it's not given to mass production techniques like a bolt action with a perfectly round receiver (think Rem 700). With a round receiver, you can get steel tubes, mill out a slot for the ejection port and another for the magazine. Quicker and easier than forged and mill. OK, I fail with the Mauser 98.

    How about the Ruger 10/22. America's favorite 22 rifle?

    Ruger .22's; from the single actions to the semi auto's, generally good times by all.

    I've had Ruger Mk. IIIs jam on me before but it was probably due to the Remington Golden Bullet bulk pack.

    I do like better the Mk. IIs with the long barrel. I'd say those are my favorite .22 autos

    Ruger's have crappy triggers, are inaccurate, and take a ton of aftermarket parts to get to work decent.

    Mauser's are heavy, overbuilt and have a slow lock time.


    This is fun, what else you got?

    World War II's cheaply stamped, unrifled, single shot Liberator pistol. I want one and my complaint is that I can't find one that I can afford. How's that for a complaint?

    There are entire forums devoted to bashing it.

    I don't think I have ever heard anybody on this forum attack CZ's products. Colt gets a good reputation but the price is usually a complaint.

    How about a least bashed guns thread?

    Although one must take care with one’s thumb and ammo choices are an issue, the M1 tends to survive relatively unscathed.

    I guess it's like I heard a guy say the other day "Some people would gripe if you hung 'em with a new rope."

    Marlin 336. Only complaints I remember reading or hearing are in regard to design changes, not the functionality of the gun.

    1911's. I've never heard a complaint from anybody worth listening to.

    (C'mon, you knew somebody was going to say it!)

    Nope, people will always find something they don't like about things.

    That's a good answer. I think every serious handgunner should have one at least. I think I've heard SaxonPig say the same thing. And they are still cheap - the one "quality" gun you can still routinely find in good shape for $300 or less.

    The other 'golden boy' of the gun world is the Winchester 94 in my book. Seven million happy customers can't be all wrong.

    It could be raining Shiner Bock beer, and somebody would still be bashing certain guns :).

    I am guilty too...do a search of LeonCarr and 1911 :).

    Just my .02,

    Never heard anyone say bad things about a Garand, but I'm sure there's one out there somewhere.

    "The Smith & Wesson model 10 "

    I would certainly have to add that one to the list. Also the 336 and 94 that were mentioned. (except for the "new" safeties) All great guns.
