    The worse pistol I actually own is hi point C9. No major issue with it, simply the least refine pistol I had owned.

    I don't know about the FTE on your G36 but I solved the pinching issue by putting the +0 Pearce Grip extentions on the mag. I get a better grip on the G36 that way.

    Now for the worst guns, actually there were 3 of them. First was an Ivers Johnson 12 Ga. Champion shotgun that kicked like a mule. Second was a 3" chambered Winchester 37A and yes, I WAS stupid enough to shoot 3" rounds in it. Third is a very last production run Winchester 94 in 45 Colt. It occasionally will let a cartridge slip uner the carrier and lock up the action. :steamed:

    Walther P22 that was fun to shoot except when it threw hot brass in your face, which it did very consistently. Sold it.

    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. :dunno:

    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...:supergrin:

    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.
