RG revolver with a piece of 1/4" galvanized pipe for a barrel. I was chambered for .22 short but we found that if you filed an eighth inch of each 22 long rifle round, they would fit and fire. It went bang every time, but hit 2 feet high at 10 yards...More of a ghetto modification problem than a gun-maker problem, but it was the worst gun I've ever shot.

.Jennings .22lr semi automatic. It was a jamalicious inaccurate piece of junk.
.Rossi .44spl. Took both thumbs to cock the hammer and it was nearly impossible to shoot single action. Nothing going on in the accuracy department either.

Colt Series 70, Kimber (I don't know the model), Remington Rand, and a RIA that had been tinkered with.

Granted these aren't top of the line, but there was nothing they did better than a Glock 30.

The worst gun I ever had was a G30SF. Fortunately Glock's customer service came through and replaced it with a NIB G30 that ran fine. The second worst was a Springfield Armory 1911A1 Micro GI. It was sent back to Springfield and still failed to run. A braggard at the range offered to buy it saying he could get any 1911 to run. I sold it to him with the warning it was a POS. He doesn't talk to me anymore, guess he never got it to run.

Jennings .22lr, jammed once in every 5 shots. Fun to shoot, but the jam-o-mastic wasn't worth the trouble. It's big brother, the JA-NINE was even worse. After 600 rounds the frame cracked. Worst line of "junk" guns by far. Not even worth as a backup to your backup.

Kimber eclipse 1911. It was a $1200 POS. Never made it through a mag without failing to feed at least once.

Ruger P345. Intermittently failed to fire, three trips to Ruger, problem persisted. They replaced it, new gun did the same thing. After one trip back for repair didn't cure its ills, I sold it back to them for a full refund of every penny I spent (gun, tax, DROS, shipping, etc)

Sterling .22. Makes the Jennings .22s look like works of advanced firearms art. The trigger on it brought new meaning to the word "vague" on the rare occasions it would actually fire. Ended up using it for a decoy weight. In that role, it was superb...

-If you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just say this to yourself... Baa.

Really? Guess I got lucky. My PT92 was rock solid, and easily more accurate than my 92FS. I sometimes regret getting rid of it, actually.

The worst gun I ever shot/owned was a Hi-Point 995 carbine. Heavy as hell up front and seemed to FTF constantly.

My Intratec 22 ("Tec 22") jams about every 5 shots and, like someone said about the Tec 9, is not accurate and sights are not adjustable. The gun would be fun to shoot if it didn't jam.

My Kel-Tech P-32 is also a jam-a-matic, which is disappointing. It's the second P-32 I've owned. The first one didn't jam.
Bad decisions make good stories.

Sig Mosquito: Could not finish a magazine without having some sort of jam issue. Sold it within a week of buying it.[/QUOTE]

I had the WORST luck with a Mosquito that my wife bought me for a Birthday present...Wouldnt get through a mag with any type ammo...I was at the edge of just tying a rope to it and drag it down the road to see the sparks fly...But I ended up pulling the barrel and did a home made ramp improvement...It still has the occasional FTF FTE...But it definately works a 1000% better than it originally did...

To this day...My wife still dont like all sigs just because of the Skeeter!!!

The very first 1911 I ever bought was a Kimber Eclipse 10mm....and an 1100 dollar paperweight. It wouldn't fire 2 or 3 before jamming up, but I smoothed things out with some flitz and a felt dremel wheel and it actually worked afterwards. However I was so pissed that at that point I'm not sure I actually wanted to keep it, so I sold it.

The Diamondback DB9 is garbage IMHO. Slide-bite city (poor design) and while the first one I owned wasn't as bad as the second, neither one of them ran right out of the box. The second one never ran.

On a positive note, the Kahr CM9 and CM40 both are fantastic small pistols!

Honestly ive never had a bad or worst one so I will go with most DISAPPOINTING one which would be the Glock 23. Didnt care much for the .40S&W round and its gone from my lineup forever(just as soon have the .45 ACP as it does everything the .40 will and with a nicer recoil). But on to the Glock its self...ive still only found 1 Glock out of their whole lineup (the 36) that actually fits my hand well..all the rest have what I call the industry worst grip+grip angle...just horrid...Owning a Glock turned me into a non glock owner...I was a kool-aid drinker/glock lover till I owned one and found out how BAD the grips were. Went from having a gun id always wanted to own(could never afford the glock) to owning one and hating it lol.

Gen 2 Glock 23 I had was a pos. I didn't like the grip as that upside down u cut into my hand. That I could live with but it crushed the spent brass. Called Glock, sent it in, got it back, same thing just not as bad. Said to hell with it and parted ways.

Ruger P95, brand new. Would fail to feed or stovepipe 3 times per mag. 2 trips back to Ruger on my dime, they said it was "within spec." When I spoke (politely) to Ruger by phone, 3 times, each time I got attitude like why was I bothering them, or how dare I say their gun was defective.

Made a Glock believer out of me!
Just had lunch at The Rod and Gun Club. Finally realized that in "philly cheese steak," philly isn't referring to Philadelphia.
