Has this been done to death or what?
Beretta 21A Bobcat .22. Thought it would be cool with a can on it, turns out the thing won't feed reliably with any ammo.
Sig P230. Ran great with some ammo and FTF'd damn near every round with the "wrong" ammo.
Because of these guns I'll never buy another Sig or Beretta again
cheap imitation Luger
A cast steel Stoeger Luger 22 LR semi auto.
It's been to the "so called" gunsmiths three times and; all three different smiths, and has not had the simple pin that the trigger pivots on replaced.
I still have it, but have no idea why I'm hanging onto it.
Raven P-25. Really fun range pistol, never jams as long as you feed it brass. Aluminum reduces it to a single-shot pistol.
Kel-Tec P(OS) 11- Jammed, failed to eject frequently, and rubbed blisters on my fingers when shooting. I had to wear Band-Aids on my fingers to qualify with it.
Gonna torque off all of the saint 1911 worshippers! Worst gun (most unreliable) piece I ever owned was a Colt MKIV Officers Model. Switched barrels, springs, mags, extractors (all by Colt gunsmith) Gun had FTE/FTF every other magazine. Bought it for EDC and ended up carrying 2 1/2" S&W M19.
SIG Mosquito -- So many jams, failures to feed, and stovepipes. My friends tell me to sell it but it would be wrong to unload this problem to someone else.
SIG Pro 2009 -- Poor ergos and excessive muzzle flip for a 9mm. The handle of this gun is too short vertically and too long front to back. The grip is also very slippery.
They actually make basically a gas piston AR that is top notch. I wouldn't say all Daewoos are jun..... Uh never mind. Yeah they all suck. Never ever buy a Daewoo.
Llama Micromaxx .380 bought because it looked like a shrunken 1911.
It would not feed BALL ammo! Two different mags same difference.
Just inaccurate guns, an Astra .357 revolver and a Mini 14 SS. Both shot pattern not group.
Of course non of my centerfire guns get shot enough to break...
There was a cheap single action .22 around here that shaved lead. A buddy has it now and has not had problems??? Karma?
I've probably owned a couple hundred handguns in my time, and I've had amazingly good luck with them. The only one that was a real bummer was a Ruger MII semiauto .22. And the only rifles that were great disappointments were also Rugers, a mini14 and a No. 1. I bought my last Ruger thirty years ago. I can't imagine that I'll ever buy another.
I did that LLama thing, too. My first auto...My last LLama...
My vote is for RG 25 auto.
Bersa Firestorm in 9MM.
Okay I'll have to pile one
In order from crappiest, to least crappy.
1)RG10 Forerunner of the P22. Teutonic Zinc casting technology at its best
2)FEG PJK-9HP Soft soft soft.
3)ITM AT84S Again, metal parts that were too soft
4)EAA Witness Just an all around lemon. Was reasonably accurate though.
Mossberg auto 22 rifle. Owned it back in the early '70's. I don't remember the model. It jambed with almost every shot. Total junk.
Beware of Thread Zombies that return from the dead again ... and then again. Still, there's room for one more: the dreaded Beretta Tomcat.
New Colt Series 70 Reissue and it's replacement from Colt.
Ruger P345. Actually a pretty good gun. Just has a TERRIBLE first D/A pull.
After that it is a dream to shoot.
Of the obvious cheap ones the Clerke 1st .22 revolver, of this there is no doubt!
Of the ones that should have been built to a higher standard, well, mine was an AMT Hardballer 7in. It just would not work no matter what.:banghead:
But, (drum roll please) I had an EAA Witness .45 that would "un-safe" itself if you pulled on the trigger a few times and annoyingly it would put itself on safe while you were firing it.( That sucked during an IPSC match) But, the worst part of this pistol was the customer service (or lack there of). I found someone who thought they wanted it and I obliged them.
Machine marks from heck, the WORST trigger on any handgun I've ever owned, barrel fouled a bit too easily, cheesy sights.
Too bad, had great ergos, just very poor fitting and trigger components.
I don't name my guns.
But if I were to, my Hi Point C9 would be named "Jammy".
Raven 25 caliber. Would exhibit every known feed,fire, and ejection problem possible with a pistol. It's stovepipes could have become and olympic event they were so lovely and intricate. First shot always fired, then the fun began.
Any gun I don't like and you do.
Hey, I had one and it always went bang and never jammed. I couldn't hit squat with it, not sure it even had rifling it was so inaccurate, but hey, it was small and cheap and always fired. I pulled it on a guy with a knife once and won the confrontation via trump card. It's the only handgun I've ever had to use to defend myself against a human.
So, POS as it was, I still hold the RG M26 in .25 Auto with high reverence.
Worst POS I've ever owned would be a tie between a RG .22 revolver (damned thing was dangerous it was so crappy) and a jammamatic Beretta .22 short "minx" with tip up barrel, single action. It usually took three hammer hits to cap any ammo I tried in it and you got a lot of jam clearing practice. Junk. I bought it thinkin', "Hell, it's a Beretta, gotta be good." The RG M26 was a FAR better gun than that Beretta! It actually worked!
Rogak LES P-18 My son got it from his grandfather on the darkside. It ended up in my safe for some reason. I'm scared to shoot it.
