I have owned two (2) that I consider POS.

S&W mdl 5906. Early 3rd gen Smith. Stainless steel. Apparently, the frame and slide were made from the same hardness, stainless.
It was galling itself to pieces. Metal filings and 'metal powder', from shooting it. No amount of lube/grease would stop the galling.
S&W couldn't explain it.

A neighbor offered to buy it for more than I paid for it. "Sold!"
(I really wanted to like that pistol.)

I've had my 5906 since '92, zero malfunctions. I got that one when the Sheriff decided to let deputy's carry anything they long as what they wanted was a 9mm, hi-capacity, stainless S&W.
Experience is what you always have about 15 minuets after you needed it.
