What is the "worst" gun you ever owned/shot?

Im glad I usually shot a gun before I buy it so I havent owned any duds. I know some people like this gun but I shot a Ruger LCR and didnt' like the stock trigger on it.

5" Kimber TLE II. Just never ran like it's supposed to, even after a trip back to Yonkers. On the bright side, I got plenty of practice with malfunction drills.

S&W mdl 39-2.

It got the reputation of being a 'jam-o-matic'.
A real POS.

It COULD have been bad magazines. I didn't keep it long enough to find out.
Sold. Bye-bye. Adios. C-ya! (POS!)

The 39-2 was carried by some police forces back in the day. It was prone to jams when limp wristed and was ammo sensitive. But overall it was a decent handgun.

My worst gun is a Rossi 357 revolver that is very ammo sensitive and gets to where the cylinder will not turn. I was given a Jennings that would be considered junk but it is actually more accurate than my 642 because of barrel length.

I had a Rossi 642(2in. stainless), the trigger was not the best. Other then that it ran perfect, and pretty dang accurate. I fed it every thing from reloads, cheap fmj, and Hornady SD rounds. (All 38) The few times I ran 357, they also ran flawlessly. I know two other people who both liked theirs, but hey it is Taurus I'm not surprised that they put out some lemons.

Exact same problem with a CW45, but my CW9 runs like a top. I sold the 45...

1 of 2 Jiminez 380s I've shot. My father picked up one in Florida a few years ago, shot it when he was in town. Great accurate gun no issues. I picked one up for the price of $155 plus $20 to transfer. Had many issues with the striker resetting and really rough trigger. Had a round discharge on me during a hangup and blew up the follower on the magazine so I'm down to one mag. I believe this was due to a striker reset and hangup issue. I still have the brass piece torn apart.

I still have the gun too, but from a safely standpoint its not worth taking to the range. Honestly I'd feel better shooting +Ps in it to make sure everything resets correctly for the next round. Maybe I'll use it down the road as a single shot to test out some loads etc.

What was wrong with the 94? Just curious.
A Charter Arms .38 was the heaviest trigger I ever pulled. Didn't keep it long.
Had a Bauer .25 that would fire whenever it felt like it after you pulled the trigger.

The worst gun I have ever shot was a Glock 30. Sawed off, bumps hitting the wrong spots all over my fingers, topped off by an mushier than average Glock trigger. I have pulled some decent Glock triggers and this wasn't one of them.

Worst gun I have ever owned was a Mosin-Nagant 91/30. What a total POS.

Hands down a para p12-45. Couldn't get through a magazine without a ftf or fte. I also have a pt22 that has been a let down. It runs ok with cci's but is very touchy with anything else.

1980s - AMT Hardballer - poorly executed clone of the 1911 design.
