Most trouble free gun you have less than $600

What has been your most trouble-free auto loader handgun that cost less than $600 new? It can be any brand including Glock but not limited to them. I'll go first with mine being a CZ 75 Compact. I lost count after three years of almost daily shooting with not one failure to function of any kind;ever. Compared to other compact handguns it's on the heavy side but if I could not have but one pistol that would be it.

More money does not mean more reliability.

If we're talking ccw, I'd go with a single stack 9mm, or 40sw. There are many in the $600 range that are plenty reliable.

I have a Kahr MK40, and it hasn't once malfunctioned. If I were going to purchase right now, I'd get the PM40, but the difference in weight isn't a deal breaker......I'll keep mine.

Sig P220.

I've owned and shot many, MANY firearms. It really doesn't get much better that that, IMHO.

Oh...or a Beretta 92.

I've had quite a few trouble free pistols but my Kahr PM9 has been my favorite so far.

I just picked up a Gen 4 G26 and its range session debut is scheduled for tomorrow.

I guess maybe I have been lucky as I have Glocks, Sigs, a H&K, some S&Ws and a couple others that have all been reliable and less than 600.

The gun i have had the longest without a single failure of any kind is my old Kimber Custom II Stainless. WAG 15/20 years. I used high priced ammunition and Wolf steel.

Second is G27 12 years. No failures of any kind with any ammunition I fed it.

Other than .22's. I would say my Kimber. Being the only one that isn't reliable.

I must be lucky. All mine work.

Glock by far. Especially used Gen 3 Glocks.

Sigs if you can find one under $600.

All my guns are trouble free. If I have a gun that doesnt work I fix it or get rid of it. I have many that have run 100%. If high round count means "most 100% reliable" then my Glock 17 is the leader by far.

Perhaps I should have specified guns that did not need any tinkering with them to make them trouble-free.

O.K. -

All of them.

I won't keep a handgun that gives me problems.
I have owned two (2) that I consider POS.

• S&W mdl 39-2. It was known as a 'jam-o-matic'. Gone.
Being absolutely honest, it COULD HAVE BEEN the magazines.
????? I sold it.

• 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 wanted........as long as what they wanted was a 9mm, hi-capacity, stainless S&W.
