    And I mean never!

    No "break-in" jams, no "limp-wrist" jams, no premature slide-locks, no "stove-pipes" on the last round, no malfunctions period.

    Vote for any semi-auto handguns that you own or are issued to you (and you have fired at least 200 rounds thru) that have never jammed.

    You forgot Browning.
    None of my centerfires have jammed in any way. The .22 LR is another matter.

    Do malfunctions directly attributed to ammo count?

    I think it would be educational to run another poll asking what brand of semi-autos each member owns. I have a feeling that factor has a big bearing on the above poll.

    Hello Croyance,

    It's good to see that the write-in option is working! :)

    These polls are limited to 12 selections, and I agree that Browning would likely get more votes than some of the other makes listed.

    The ones I have never fired.

    "Do malfunctions directly attributed to ammo count?"

    YES, a jam is a jam. I don't care if it was caused by a design flaw, a broken part, a bad mag, bad ammo, limp wristing. dirt, ice, solar flares or whatever, a jam is a jam, is a jam. No excuses, no rationalizations. Of course this isn't my thread so I guess I shouldn't be laying down any ground rules, I apologize and suggest that this be a parameter.

    My Kimber 1911 jammed until it was broken in. My HKs (USPc and Tactical) have never jammed, my Ruger P97 never jammed, and my Kahr P9 has never jammed.

    I have never had a malfunction of any kind with....

    My new rollmark Colt 1991A1 break in or otherwise. 800 or so.
    My SIG220ST 1000 or so rounds
    My SIG 239 600 or so rounds
    My SIG 225 500 or so rounds
    My Walther P99 1000-1500 rounds

    Non of those have ever had a malfunction of any type.

    I have had a few malfunctions that were magazine related in my Ruger P97. This gun also has the most rounds through it so it is ahead of the others in wear and tear. I have run a buttload of rounds through this and had about 10 malfunctions that come to mind.

    Chris

    BTW: I tend not to shoot reloaded ammo. I do not shoot Blazer aluminum case stuff and I shoot mostly hardball. All guns have had some hollowpoint defensive ammo run through them but not much compared to ball.

    One other caveat to what I posted...

    I only use factory magazines, period. I may try the ACT-Mags for my 220 but so far nothing but factory.

    Every handgun I have ever owned jammed at one time or another. The reasons are many, but they jammed. Some of them I fired until they jammed and then decided to clean them. This usually occurs around 600 rounds between cleanings.

    Only one for me - a SIG P239. It hasn't jammed ever and that includes all jamming possibilities, ammo, cleaning (or not), etc. Others have jammed at least once for various reasons.

    My Browning High Powers have never jammed apart from one jam that was directly related to a newly-installed (and quickly removed) buffer. Sorry I couldn't choose Browning P-35 from the above list.

    I have 5 SIGs (232, 225, 226, 228, 239), 4/5 have never had an ammo/feed-related problem. The 228 has had some ftf/stovepipes using cheapo aftermarket hi-caps, but never with factory mags. My H&K USP45C has never jammed, either. All have atleast 1000 rounds thru, are kept clean, and are fed a wide variety of factory ammo.

    I also have 3 Kimbers of varoius sizes. The GM-size has been perfect, the shorties (compact and ultra carry) have had a couple of minor jams in the 1st 2-300 rounds, have been about flawless ever since.

    I've been lucky. The only truly jam-o-matic I've owned was an Interarms PPK/S. Nasty litttle gun to shoot, couldn't finish a mag w/o a jam/stovepipe. After 3 trips back to the factory, it got traded off for a Beretta 85F, a very nice/classy, if not a bit big, for a .380)

    My Kimber Series I Stainless Target. Only one problem, a bad factory rd ( very weak recoil and sound). Bullet exited and spent case ejected, another round chambered. I didn't take a chance I cleared to make sure... I could have kept shooting. I quit counting rds a long time ago around the 8K mark...plenty since then.

    Write In: Keltec P-11 Never ever had anything go wrong...I've tried to make mine fail...over 6K rds.

    Pre-B CZ75, that i've owned and fired countless rounds
    thru since 1985.

    Glock 26, now 4 years of hard use.

    CZ40B, that thing was an ammo machine!

    CZ97B-SA .45 going great so far, but of course,
    it's a CZ:)

    I had a Beretta 8045F that never jammed on anything. I had a Beretta 92FS that never jammed on anything. I have a Springfield Champion that jammed on two out of spec Blazers, but has never jammed with brass cased ammo. I have a Colt Officer's Model that has never jammed but hasn't been shot much either.

    If every type of pistol ever made were arrayed on a table and I was told I have 5 minutes to make a choice before I had to shoot two BGs who were on the way, and provided only a box of Blazer or Wolf to use in the appropriate caliber, I'd be seeking out some flavor of duty sized Beretta, loading it, and cocking its hammer back for single-action firing. They are the one pistol line I have personal confidence in to be able to shoot the whole mag without a failure.

    With Mark IV Series 80's permission, I have added Browning to the poll.

    Since we can only vote once, I have also added the votes indicated in this thread that would have voted for Browning, so please don't add another one if you have already posted above.

    My Ruger P92 never ever jammed, but the extractor fell off once. Does that count?

    None of my P7s have ever jammed.

    I haven't got jams in ANY of my HK's or in my 92 Centurion. I just changed springs in my 29fs, so we'll see if it was for the good or not.
    EVerything else I've had has jammed at some time or another.

    I didnt vote cause of the 'And I mean NEVER' parameters.

    My G21 has never jammed on any factory ammo. A few jams while working up decent handloads for it.

    My Colt .45 had some stovepipes and ftf's when new but since it was ported, polished and throated it has not (cept for that batch of over tapercrimped reloads.)

    I still trust the Colt more.

    My Ruger 22/45 has never jammed, has 400 rounds through it. My Beretta 96 has had three FTEs due to bad ammunition. (Wolf twice and cheap reload once.)
