    Rossi R462 revolver in 357 Magnum. The same part (cylinder bolt) broke 3 different times over the course of a year. Broke the first time after 1/2 day and 50 rounds, after being fixed (6-8 weeks) it lasted almost a year and 500 rounds before the same part cracked again. Gun inoperative, back to the factory again. I was going to sell it but my dad wanted to borrow it so I let him. The third time it broke, the gun lasted all of 5 rounds since the last repair, and the same frickin' part broke again.

    It went back to the factory one more time to get fixed, and then I sold it to a gunshop. The owner test fired a cylinder through it to make sure it worked, and it did. I paid shipping all three times it went to the factory, but at least the $130 I got for the pistol paid for some of that.

    People can tell me how great Taurus pistols have been for them, but I'll never touch another Rossi (owned by taurus) ever again. Badly made guns, indifferent customer service.

    Charter Arms AR7.
    bought it for a camping canoeing backpacking plinker because it was compact and it because it would float. The only reason I didn't throw it away in a river somewhere was because it would float.

    I'll be the lone Charter Arms defender here, have a still great '73 AR-7, but I'm well aware of the tales of the warped barrels. Lot of the trouble with them was they don't function with non high-velocity .22's. I intend on picking the Henry-made one up to compare them side by side eventually. Ok I'm done being contrary for it's own sake :D

    Worst handling guns are a tie between a 9 shot taurus tracker that refuses to hold timing, and a Bryco/Jiminez 9mm that feels more dangerous to the shooter than the shootee when you grip it.

    Ruger LCP. Went back to the factory three times before they gave me a refund. They were jerks about it too.

    Top break .22. Viking I think was the model. Bought it used sometime around 1958. I was 14 at the time so my mother had to sign for it. About the only part that didn't shake or rattle was the front site. Out of the thousands of rounds I shot I doubt I ever hit anything....................

    Boy ya got me Jimmy. About all I can remember is the sporting goods store wouldn't sell it to me because I was too young. I remember ridding my bicycle home and conning my mom to go down there with me.

    Grendel P-10, though I did finally get it to work. I have since developed a sweet spot for it, though I still do not carry it in "front-line" rotation.

    EAB serial number S&W bodyguard .380. Less than 100 shots fired before it jammed permanently. Sent back three times before they finally decided to cut bait and send a new one (EAX number now). Not a hiccup in 167 shots so far. Another 100 with the same performance and I'll call it okay for the wife to carry.

    I also have an old Colt Navy that was VERY bad luck for some yankee officer that great great grandpaw took out with his squirrel gun. I never fired it though.

    It would be a Dan Wesson 357 snubby. Trigger pull was terrible. Had to use both fingers to pull it- about 20 LBS.:banghead: Two smiths looked at it and could not make it any better. I never did need a trigger lock with that thing. swapped it with a guy for a Uberti repro 45 Colt revolver. Feel I swapped a club for a revolver.:D

    A Remington 7400 in 30/06. It was a jam-o-matic and not accurate at all.
    Sold it and bought a Browning BAR and then I was happy. Well, for about 15 years till I bought an A-Bolt. Now I'm happy.

    I actually like mine. Not because it is any sort of reliable, but it is one of the most accurate .22s I have ever shot. When it decides to shoot of course.. lol

    I'm with the the Davis/Jimenez/so forth so on people. Trigger pull is horrid, Had a .22 one go full auto on me and a .380 fall apart.
