a problematic SA 1911 milspec, nowadays I could have fixed it but back then I ended up selling it for what I paid for with full disclosure to the buyer that it had problems. 2nd place would be a wanna be krinkov from century. not a draco per se but a draco in rifle configuration. total pos, fte & ftf atleast 3 times in a 10round mag. 3rd place pos would be a remington 1100. I called it a remington 550 because it worked half the time. called remington and they wanted me to take it to a certified rem gunsmith. "extensively test fired- no malfunctions". took bolsa 3 weeks to tell me that.

Every 200 rounds or so it would sear off the roll pin holding the rear site in place .
At that point the only thing holding the rear site would be the elevation screw .
Few more rounds the site would pop off and never to be seen again .
A clear manufactures defect AMT never repaired the pistol under their warranty .

Two 1911's, remarkably enough (since that's what I've owned and carried exclusively for almost ten years). Consider this a cautionary tale about being CERTAIN of what you're BUYING, before you BUY it! :o

Worst USED gun: Michigan Armament kit gun 1911. I was smitten, had the cash, and didn't know thing ONE about 1911's. This hunka junk was thoroughly pitted with surface rust, such that it wouldn't even feed hardball, and no amount of copper brush scrubbing would fix it. It was early 1991 for reference, and I was in college - I took this POS to a pawn shop, and got a 24" color TV, VCR, and $100 cash for it... and I got the hell outta there before they realized it was a boat anchor waiting to happen!!!

Worst NEW gun: Norinco 1911 clone. In the early '90's, Norinco made some seriously kick-a@@ .223 and 7.62x39 ammo, CHEAP! BRASS-cased .223 - brass-washed steel case 7.62x39 (including some steel core ammo with some serious penetration capability) - and you could get it for $.99/box of 20! Yep - $49/1,000 rounds of it! Even on a college budget, we could shoot 3,000 rounds in an afternoon for $149, and not think twice about it!!! :eek::cool:. And while you could pick up a new-in-the-cosmoline SKS for $79, or a MAK-90 for $199 (American wood kit for another $49, and you had a rifle you could actually HOLD, without breaking your thumb on the Sarah Brady butthole stock :mad:), which rocked & rolled without ceasing... their 1911 clone, was another story.

I bought mine shortly after Christmas '92, and while it looked old school, G.I. parkerized and what not, it began jamming on the second mag of hardball. :mad: My first 1911 was a study in ferrous oxide, but OUT-of-the-box NEW - and given Norinco's decent QC in other areas - I was QUITE disappointed with this hunk-o-crap.

That said, I just KEPT on using my S&W1006 (bought in the summer of '91) for another 12 years, although I did finally decide on my third stab at a 1911, to actually buy QUALITY this time. Got a S-A 1911A1 in '95, that I still have to this day (top right of picture). My S&W 1911 is my daily carry piece now.

Remarkable the quality you can get, if you shop around FIRST, and pinch your pennies...

I've been fortunate in that I've never owned an unreliable handgun. The bifggest dissappointment was when I saved up $750 for my first legal adult handgun buy and bought a para ordnance. It ran great but was very innaccurate. Sold it for $500, lesson learned.

AMT Hardballer...back in the day before GLOCKS (which are among the best).

I heard it was coming out, the first Stainless steel .45 auto......a bunch of us ordered them from B&B Sales (bob and barry) up in their Saticoy location(before they went big) store. Paid $1000 for it. It was a POS. The finish was horrible, wouldn't feed anything; even hardball was inconsistent. The sight screws came out at the Range about the 3rd magazine...I was so wrong to buy this. Later sold it for $400 after giving the guy a complete run-down on my problems. :mad:

Decided to stick with COLT.

Ranch model stainless Ruger Mini 14

With optics, 6" group at 50 yards

I could literally group better with my 1911

It ran fine, no malfunctions, it would throw the brass 17-20 yards so reloading was out

The accuracy was just unacceptable

PISTOL: probably the Bersa 380 (worst disassemble ever) or the Ruger LC9 (worst trigger, mag safety so you cant fire when its out, terrible sights)

RIFLE: Savage model 11 Hunter in the .308 (the stock couldnt hold the bang from the .308 damm thing moved everywhere no matter how strong of hold or how many bags i set up to support..should have gotten the old faithful heavier wood stock)

Got offered a killer deal by a retiring DEA agent - so I had to buy it.

Shot it a few times - couldn't stand it

I literally GAVE IT AWAY to my best friend..... we were shooting and he says can I try it - sure (it sucks - but sure) - he liked it - so I said "Great, it's yours"

And don't go into the "how great glacks are" - I know the story - I agree it is a well made gun with a great reputation - but I HATED IT

It's a tie for me. Both guns were made by Armscor.

First one was my first 1911. An Armscor EFS (Enhanced Full Size). Man what a dog this thing was. The Novak sights were okay and the Novak magazine was high quality, but the gun itself was crap. Rough swirl machining marks everywhere on the inside, the bushing rattled around even when in battery, and she only ran when practically dripping with oil. I'm glad RIA upped their QC, but their early guns were pretty crappy.

Other one was a cheapie .22 rifle that had a weird 9-round stick magazine. I think I bought it at Big 5, and it was half the price of a 10/22 which is why I bought it. Unfortunately it was only like a tenth the gun a 10/22 is. It jammed repeatedly, and when I disassembled it, found that parts of the bolt assembly were made of PLASTIC and had no durability at all. I let it go to a pawn shop for something like $25 and didn't feel cheated.

I've owned 4 firearms in my life, and have 2 hand-me-downs that are in the process of restoration.

The 4 I have owned:

Sig SP2022 .40S&W -still have
Stag Arms Model 8 AR-15 - still have
H&K USP .40 S&W
Glock 17 Gen2
Krag-Jorgensen Model 1898 -Great Grandfather used it in the Army, Pending restoration
Stevens 1913 single shot shotgun - Great Grandfather used it as a bird gun, Pending restoration

Out of those...I would say Glock 17 Gen2, only because I didn't like the grips. Once I held the USP it felt better in my hand so I traded the Glock in for it. It is an amazing gun in every other standing to me. But out of the 4 I've owned I would say it is the "worst"

StanCo
09-04-2012, 1:21 PM
An Iver Johnson hammerless 32 S&W top break revolver was by far the worst gun I ever owned. I inherited it back in the 70ís. The trigger pull was terrible. The latch that held the gun closed was loose and I had to use my thumb to keep the gun from coming open when it was fired. The cylinder locking mechanism was loose and the back end of the barrel was chewed up from the bullets hitting it. Sometimes it would spit more lead out the side of the gun than it would down the barrel. In 1978 someone stole it. Looking back I think they did me a favor.

Colt 1911.

Hammer bite, grip safety that wouldn't de-activate with a "riding the thumb safety" grip, horrible ergonomics (have to ride the thumb safety to make sure the damn thing stays off Safe), inadequate round capacity.

Nicely made, but not a good gun for self-defense.

My dad has the same gun-same problem. His also had the auto disassemble feature. Sometimes while shooting it, the gun would start to come apart and eventually the pieces would separate and fall to the ground. It has worked pretty good since I had the gunsmith fit a new barrel to it (old one split-possible factory defect), but I just don't know how to fix the sights short of milling the slide for a Dawson setup. Even then, the top of the slide is narrow compared to my XD that has Dawson sights milled into the slide.


My 10/22 has feeding issues once in a while, but I haven't put any effort into it yet. It is from 2000 and has real stainless and a metal trigger guard. My other handful of guns have been great. I also bought them new and bought pieces I thought were well made.

and also wish that I got a SU16CA instead of A, I really can't stand the plastic front sight on Alpha model

I think my worst was an ancient Win M90 gallery gun. It was rusted and neglected and would burst about every other case. I gave it to a dude in southern NJ who cleverly left the burst case in there and cut off the rim, effectively sleeving it. Rumor had it that it tightened up the groups considerably and was working like a champ. Who knew?

Second would be a Star S, I think, in .380. Never could get reliability or accuracy out of it. And that couldn't have been MY fault, after all.

I had an RG .22 revolver. My first handgun. The lifter broke that allows the hammer to hit the fireing pin. Being a wise 14 year old I ground a bit of the hammer to still hit the pin without the lifter. This made it a 5 shot. That's about it out of about 50 guns. I've been pretty lucky.

Hard to say because I only buy guns I like. Worst trigger though would have to go to my two AR's with LPK triggers.. They are so gritty and I can never tell when the break is. Worst handgun trigger of the guns I own would be my m&p9. Nonexistent reset and mushy break. Probably going to upgrade the triggers in both. I wouldn't call them the worst though. They just have my least favorite triggers out of my guns

Ok guys, the guns under $100 don't count. You got what you paid for. ( I had a Rohm overnite, then destroyed it before someone got hurt.)
The posts on Ruger LCP trigger couldn't be more accurate, it can actually pinch the finger as well. Traded mine.
The multiple posts on the Walther P22 only liking expensive 22 ammo is totally correct and seen all over the web.
But if we are talking surprise, my S and W scandium 22 revolver is it. 5" off center at 20' from bench rest. Sent it to SandW and got it back shooting 4" off center. Trough for a back site and no adjustments. New gun at $750. They think this is acceptable.

HK45... not that there is anything wrong with this fine pistol. I'm just not as accurate w/ it when compared to my other .45's. I just don't shoot it enough. I typically opt for my 1911's or the Sigs when I'm shooting .45's. Thus, my HK45 is a safe queen for now...

Used to own a Hi-Point 9mm. It was gross pot metal, and was designed to never be disassembled. It was really a disgusting gun. BUT it always ran, and I got it brand new when I was in college for under $200. I needed a pistol and it was the only one I could scrape up enough cash for. It might have weighed 65 pounds even with a polymer frame, but it did go bang all the time.

Something breaks on it every range trip. Currently broken in the safe right now after it went only 5 rounds after the last thing I fixed. I'll never buy another product from that crappy company again. Even when it was almost working OK, I had to detail strip it after every range trip just to keep it going. POS

The only thing it is good for is safety demo's at the house cause all the working guns are already loaded up in the car. I can't even sell it stating the problems because I would feel so bad for whoever I sold it to.

Rifle - Sig 556. Had to go back twice and my friend sent his back 3 times. Rail was mounted off, barrel was awful. 10" group at 50yrds, and chews brass. Factory never was able to fix the problem for the barrel. Supposely changed the barrel, now I have 6" group at 50yrds. Quote "It has a tight barrel, needs to be broken in" Yeah... ok.. It was the first generation, so I guess I was one of the beta testers.

Issued, not owned.

HK USP40. Went to the factory twice, never fixed. Fail to feed 7 out of 100 rounds every time.

Issued also: Beretta 96D Brigadeer. The first one issued had 36 FTF's, the second had a broken trigger bar, and the third had a cracked slide. The second WORST handgun issued was P229 DAK. Possibly the worst and ***-backwards trigger in the world. Thank GOD I am getting rid of it and going back to a Glock 17!!

10/22

It was inaccurate, wouldn't feed a full 10 rd mag, had extraction issues, the receiver casting had "bumps" that I had to remove so the bolt would cycle right. I ended up replacing pretty much everything on the gun, like so many people do with a 10/22, but it was necessary just to get it to work right. The quality was on-par with a Crosman 760 pumpmaster for $29, poorly executed cast crap slapped together.

Haha- comedy gold!!! :D

Worst I ever owned- S&W Sigma 9M. Light strikes, Jamming, back to the factory TWICE and still a failure. Chucked back up for cheap on B&Bs consignment rack (where I first bought the POS).

runners up- Grandel P10. Sad thing is it was accurate, but but would toss a loaded bullet over my head sometimes and close on an empty chamber. Sold for parts and frame destroyed.
Davis 380. First gun I bought- no reg required in 1990 private party :D
Slide cracked after a couple hundred rounds. After meeting 'mr sledge' it's probably rotting away in pieces at the city dump somewhere.


Some of the guns named here I've had great luck with- Colt Mustang Pocketlite- mine feeds even the old angular Cor Bon JHPs and kicks less than my PPK. My view is- if the guns WORKS despite being a little inaccurate, it isn't that bad. See my winners.

Worst I've ever handled? I repaired a Clerke First .22 for my electrician. It has the CRAPPIEST cylinder stop I've ever seen. It just wore off so the cylinder wouldn't stop when he had it. Must've had an angel watching him that kept the POS from blowing up in his hand. I think that thing is worse than the RG revolvers.

-Dave

SIG P210-6.

I couldn't stand the European Mag release; then after I had the chrome-plating job done on the frame and slide, along with the gold-plating on the trigger, hammer, and levers, it just didn't feel the same. I drilled some holes in the bottom to mount a tactical light but the metal on the frame was too soft in that area to keep the machine screws from loosening up the radiator clamps holding the light in place. Total junk. Never again. :mad:

I sold it at Turner's Norwalk for $500 on consignment.

I think I'm the only person in the world who feels this way about this pistol, but: Sig SP2202

The grip was fine for me except the part of my hand that hung off the bottom felt very awkward. And it always seemed to want to take a nosedive as soon as my grip loosened on it.

I sold it here in record time though, so that worked out well. :D

Great reading guys.....The worst gun I have ever owned was actually the most expensive gun I have ever bought. I received a pretty decent inheritance about 12 years ago and decided to alott $2000 towards a dream gun. For me, that was a .44 automag...could not find one in that price range so I opted for a bigger hand cannon. I bought a Wildey in .475 wildey magnum for $1800....ever see Death Wish III? The gun itself is beautiful...HUGE!! it was brand new so I had to dial in the action (its adjustable) I bought factory loads straight from Wildey in Conn. (in 2001 these were going for $94 a box of fifty). Took it to the range in Redlands off Orange. Followed instructions to the TEE to dial it in....would not cycle ammo period...after the all the "ooohs and aaaahs" wore off...and wasting 40 rnds in my single shot paper-weight....put it back in box and went home. Called Wildey and they said they can adjust to shoot their ammo, so I shipped it to them. Two months later I get it back. I practically run to the range. I slam about $29 worth of ammo into this thing and after getting beat to death shooting four rounds I get *click*...here we go....same damn thing with the action. Cleared the action and finshed the magazine. If one thinks the bigger and heavier the pistol the less the recoil? B******T!!!!! I've shot .454 casulls that were more comfortable to shoot. Plus as an added attraction, once I got the action working "ok", it now blows the empty shells straight back into my forehead..nice. I never had a gun that I was actually "scared" to shoot. Also, it had a nice finish outside, all stainless, but the machining inside left something to be desired...I have mosin/nagants with with better tooling. Moral here is I guess, is beauty is only skin deep....I sold this mechanical A-hole for $1200 with 300 rounds of ammo.....what a waste of money, I still cry when I think of this thing.

Called Wildey and they said they can adjust to shoot their ammo, so I shipped it to them. Two months later I get it back. I practically run to the range. I slam about $29 worth of ammo into this thing and after getting beat to death shooting four rounds I get *click*...here we go....same damn thing with the action. Cleared the action and finshed the magazine. If one thinks the bigger and heavier the pistol the less the recoil? B******T!!!!! I've shot .454 casulls that were more comfortable to shoot. Plus as an added attraction, once I got the action working "ok", it now blows the empty shells straight back into my forehead..nice. I never had a gun that I was actually "scared" to shoot. Also, it had a nice finish outside, all stainless, but the machining inside left something to be desired...I have mosin/nagants with with better tooling. Moral here is I guess, is beauty is only skin deep....I sold this mechanical A-hole for $1200 with 300 rounds of ammo.....what a waste of money, I still cry when I think of this thing.

Great story.

A 9mm SS Springfield 1911. The gun runs perfectly and I shoot it the best of all my guns...eventually it became boring so I don't shoot it at all any longer.;)

Beretta 96-Snappy as hell and hated the ergo's.

Rifle: Yugo SKS- Hated "field stripping" it which took me a long time, also weird little switch on it that would slip out and turn it into a straight pull bolt action until you put it back in place

never had anything "bad" just stuff i didn't get along with. anyone who says a sigma is a bad gun, is a fool. if it doesn't work for you, that's another thing. mine would digest pretty much any ammo you threw at it, including steel case stuff, i just couldn't hit a damn thing with it, hated that trigger. same can be said for a lot of glocks. sigma is a much more ergo-friendly design, i just don't like striker-fired pistols period. as for those whining about mosins? they're just not made for sissies is the problem, get an AR if you can't handle a man's gun.

Model 69 Romanian 22. I bought a pair for 130$ and got ripped off. Constant failure to feed, one would occasionally just lose the bolt out the back while cycling it. Trigger like a pepper grinder, not accurate or fun

I traded the pair for a highly worn VZ rechambered to 762 Nato. Its killed piles of rabbits and ground squirls with the 10 grain plastic ammo, and is one of my most fun guns.

In 1997 I bought an Intratec AB-10 (tec 9) from Turners for $179.99, brand new. It came with 1 40 rd magazine. At first it wouldn't cycle more than 3 or 4 rounds in a row. After months of shooting it every time I went to the range, about 1000 rounds, it finally broke in and would feed consistently. It was also the least accurate gun I owned. When the AWB came up I sold it for $500.00 and good riddance. Except now I see them going for $800. Ugh.

AR-308 build. DPMS AP4 upper, LPK, Stock, $45 DPMS factory mags, on a Fulton lower. Biggest POS I ever owned. Couldn't get through a single mag without some kind of feed/eject problem. Replaced it with a PTR-91 & it runs 100%.

The worst gun I ever owned was a Remington 887 Nitro Mag with a 28" barrel. I picked it up on the 28th and on the 29th took it to the range for the first time. The first four rounds would not eject and were stuck in the action. On the 16th round I racked the action to eject the shell and it ejected but the action locked into place and would not move forward to cycle the next round. I just had Turner's send it off to Remington and am getting my money back to put toward a Remington 870 Police Magnum or a Benneli Nova.

Its really hard to pick a worst gun, but if I had to choose just one it would have to be the Diamondback DB380. Wouldn't feed hollowpoints worth a damn, would usually hang between the feed lips of the mag and the feed ramp of the barrel every other round at the range, and coupled with the fact that the gun had no slide stop lever it was damn near impossible to safely clear the malfunction. Couple that with the front sight coming loose after less than 50 rounds, and the overall piss-poor build quality of the gun. I would have gladly traded it for an S&W Sigma, that is how much I hated it...

That one used to be my worst too. After the home trigger job, it has shot it's way up to one of my best. The feel is undeniably the best, but that dang trigger... FAIL!!

Mine was the way when I bought it 20 years ago. Last year I found the Jennings forum on the internet. I grabbed my dremel tool and used a small buffing pad to polish the feed ramp. Then I bought some Stingers and took it to the range. It hasn't jammed 1 time since then.

I use it for trick shots. The trick is hitting the paper.

A.J. Ordnance "Thomas" .45 Double Action Auto. Looked like some kind of Walther PPK mutation. Fixed barrel, delayed blow back, horrible trigger pull (the one I had anyway). The pull was long and was smooth until the end where the effort was like trying to crack a walnut rather than firing the gun. Felt "slide heavy" in my hand. Especially when that short, heavy slide slammed back.

it.

Ranch model stainless Ruger Mini 14

With optics, 6" group at 50 yards

I could literally group better with my 1911

It ran fine, no malfunctions, it would throw the brass 17-20 yards so reloading was out

The accuracy was just unacceptable

Me too, for years. Recently I fully bedded the action, did a trigger job and installed an accu-strut. The old dog came to life and I can consistently hit chickens at 220 yards. Big change. Before, it wouldn't consistently hit a 4 inch target at 50 yards.

Ruger Mini 14 I purchaced in 1978, and a Model 95 Mauser, rechambered in .308. I only paid $50 for it several years ago.

I couldn't hit anything smaller than an 18" circle past 50 yds with the Mauser. I gave it to a friend who absolutely loved it. He happily shoots 12" targets at 30 yds with it. Go figure.

Ruger Mini 14. Reliable, tough, easy to clean, POS for accuracy! 12" MOA from a GUN VICE!! Sent it back to Ruger twice. Last time got a letter stating that accuracy was now within "acceptable limits". Took it out and got a much improved, but still pathetic 5" MOA. For comparison, I had a Remington .220 swift that shot .75 MOA at the time, so there was nothing wrong with the marksman.

What ticked me off is I paid $300 NIB for it, sent it back twice with little improvement, then sold it to someone for $200.

To be fair, Ruger did offer to exchange the rifle, but I didn't want another Mini. Haven't owned one since. I considered buying one of the new Minis (Supposedly they're improved), but my gun dealer who owns one said I wouldn't be happy with the accuracy still.

I bought an SU16 instead. This has acceptable accuracy at a 1.25 to 1.5 MOA.

That's a shame.... I think the Mini is a cool rifle.
