Ok, someone has to ask it here. What is the worst gun the you have ever owned? For me I have to name two. One was a Star in 9mm. The other was a EAA witness in 10mm. The star wouldn't hit the broad side of a barn from 6 feet and the Eaa wouldn't feed two rounds in a row. Even after polishing the feed ramp and getting new magazines for it.

What was/is yours?

Wow I never had a problem with the EAA I owned, but it was a Witness Match in .40. I cant honestly say that I have had any bad guns, nothing ive had has ever gave me any real problems.

I've never owned any bad ones ... because when I buy a gun, it has been researched or I buy one similar to what I already have.

Everyone makes a POS from time to time. Then again some just can't make a decent gun. (whispering)Shhhh. Be very quite about this but I have even heard of a few bad Glocks that had made it past QC.

Roger that, my ma had one when I was growing up and it was a piece of junk. I'd have to say that I have never owned a bad gun. Owned a few that were crappy at first, but once I got through with them they were awesome guns.

Well I guess since there are a lot of people on here who havnt had a bad gun then maybe we can change things around a lil bit. I have never owned a bad gun but I have shot plenty of terrible guns over the years. The worst of which was a High Point .45, I love that they are a small company and really wanted to give them a try so I bought 200 rounds of ammo and borrowed it from a friend to take to the range...what a mistake, the thing weighed a ton and felt like a brick in my hand. Then I started shooting it, not a single mag of the 200 rounds went by without a problem...

Really? Outside of them being ugly, and heavy I have only heard good things about them in terms of accuracy and re-liability.

Back around 99 and early 2000s, GLOCKs were not officially recalled but had to go through frame replacement. The machining process for the rear slide rails embedded in the frame was out of spec and the slide tabs would break off. The best thing I could advise when buying a used 3rd gen GLOCK of if you have one already and you knew it wasnt new before you got it, call GLOCK in Smyrna and have them check the serial# and they can tell you if its inside the fault production time, and they will replace it for you. Check out the vid

Yeah thats what I had heard too so I was gonna give the small local company a chance. I was very disapointed in its reliability but not its accuracy It was a tack driver when it fired, could have been a fluke or just bad mags not sure..
