The cheapest handgun I bought was a 25ACP Raven ,and surprisingly enough it function fine.
Hi-Point compact 9mm. $99, still functions like the first day I bought it. Great little gun.
Worst $72.00 mistake i ever made!
I can honestly say I have never bought a cheap firearm. I would rather save and get quality. I am not some superior or rich person or even a snob. I just am a firm believer in the saying that you get what you pay for!
Davis Derringer .38
It was functional and accurrate to 15yds.
Both of mine cost the exact same. Glock 19 w/ns and Glock 26 with ns. Exact same price from same dealer.
S&W mod 10 and Taurus 85. both under $200 and both functions fine.
Just not a lot of money. Used Model 10 IIRC $75 some years ago.
Sold it later for $ 125. I Know...should have kept it.
A used Raven for $35 back in the '80's------What a POS!!!!
Only worked as single shot---sold it for $25.
I feel dirty even talking about it.
Well..how about almost bought?
A buddy of mine needed some money so he decided to sell one of his wife's guns. Went over and found out it was a nickel plated Jennings .25 auto with pink grips.
I just loaned him the $40 and told him to keep it.
RG 38 spl. snubby (before barrel liners)
What a POS, 20# trigger and off the B27 at 7 yds.
Begged acquaintance to take it . He Did, Both of us happy
Good decision ' hope he pays you back though.
I bought a older S&W 586 w/ 6" barrel for $50. Later learned it was used & abused. I ended up cleaning it up and selling it for something I could use.
Hi-Point 9mm compact and it didn't function at all!!!
10-Ring - why couldn't that S&W be repaired? What was so wrong with it that it wasn't cost effective to fix it and return it to service. BTW, $50 is a great buy on your part.
My cheapest buy was an "estate" type sale where I picked up 3 guns for $125. The S&W revolver in the group had an aftermarket cylinder and bbl.
4v50 Gary - this happend many many many many years ago. I wasn't to knowledgable re: gunsmiths, S&W revolvers and what I really had. I figured if the guy was really willing to let it go for $50 it must really be worth about $50. I did make money on the deal when I sold it, tho (isn't that the American way?)
a RG .22 LR! revolver

A Soviet Nagant revolver made in 1944. $80.00
The same gun was going for $50.00 to people who had C&R licenses.
FM Hipower and a Taurus PT22 for a grand total of $100. Not bad huh? Mark
FIE Titan .25, believe it or not the darn little thing was 100% reliable and reasonably accurate. Bought it for $59. Sold it, but wouldn't mind finding another.
A British Webley revolver in 38 S&W made in WWII. I paid $75 for it. It had tooling marks all over it and a really ugly finish. I was dry firing it at home when it froze up. A gun smith told me a part was broken (I can't remember what it was called) and there were no replacement parts for it. "Just hang it on the wall" he said. I sold it in a pawn shop for $25. I never did get to fire that gun.
Bought a Phoenix HP22 for $75.00. Turned out to be a fun plinker. Put a lot of rounds through it but eventually sold it to a relative.
My Beretta for $630. My favorite gun.
The cheapest (and by cheap, I mean inexpensive) handgun I ever bought was a CZ-52. Money well spent if you ask me. Now to track down some .223 Timbs ammo... The cheapest, brand new handgun I ever purchased was a Republic Arms Patriot. Again, money well spent. I've had good luck with inexpensive handguns I guess...
$89 for a Victory Model.
And same for a 1917 Model.
Both shot great!
