    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.

    Between glocks, berretas, sigs, rugers and springers the only auto loader hand gun I have had that is trouble free is my keltec pf9. The ktec is the only gun I have that has never malfunctioned.

    I've had a Gen2 GLOCK 19 since 1998 with about 15,000 rounds through it that has not had one malfunction of any kind.

    Both of my SIGs, my S&W M&P9c, and my CZ75 P-07 Duty. These babies eat anything I feed them and none has ever hicccupped.
