    Smith/Wesson/Walther 990l.
    9mm of crapola. Top heavy, rust bucket, way too complicated parts,
    and held open the slide half the time even after a return trip to the shop.
    Sold for $375, just what I had in it.
    I laugh when I hear of Walther quality especially being made by Smith.
    ADIOS!

    Mine was a Bersa 380 I purchased (2nd Bersa). Bought it brand new and the damn thing wouldn't fire after 30 rounds. The spring under the grip would pop out of place after X amount of rounds which renders the trigger useless. Did some research on it on the Bersa forum and turned out it was a widely known problem with many of those pistols.

    I contacted Bersa, the person on the phone said to send it in and they will fix it, but there's a catch, they will not cover shipping charges, said the person. Now if the problem was widely known, why would they let it leave the factory in the first place? Next time they should put a note under the price tag "add an additional $40.00 so we can fix the broken NEW IN BOX pistol." :steamed:

    I got rid of it the next day. Never again will I deal with this B.S.

    Tec 9 . Yes I am admitting that I actually used to own one. I was young once and thought they were cool. It was a total piece of crap. I broke so many times I can't count them. I sold the gun while it was broke. I was tired of fixing it. Live and learn I guess.

    I had an XD .40 and hated it

    i couldnt shoot it well, it scraped skin off the top of my thumb after about 50 rds of shooting, i dont know maybe i wasnt holding it well or the .40 recoil was too sharp for me

    i love 9's so much more

    Taurus PT-140. What an utter piece of junk. It literally fell apart in my hands. It's a shame because it is a very compact and ergonomic design.

    Ruger M77 in 300 Win Mag. Not sure what was up with this rifle, but it was the most punishing rifle I've ever shot. Used to dread having to sight it in before Caribou season every year. Broke one pair of my glasses and gave 2 of my buddies a severe case of "scope eye". My favorite day of ownership was the day I sold it to the next victim. :whistling:

    kit build ar-15. it was built correctly, just a piece of junk. couldn't fire 5 rounds without a jam, and then it would be locked up tight. lesson learned is that when you buy an ar, buy quality and spend lots of money on a noveske.

    Dysfunctional - Taurus 94 .22 revolver. After 200 rounds, it stopped popping the primers. Taurus "fixed" it by giving it a 30 pound trigger with three hitches and a sandpaper pull.
    Also Taurus PT-140. The internal lock could not be unlocked, so no shot ever got fired through it.

    Unreliable: S&W 41 .22. Marvelous trigger and accuracy, but never got through a single magazine without stoppages, regardless of ammo.
    S&W 2214 .22. Handy, but wouldn't fire three rounds in a row without jamming.
    Beretta 950BS .22. Wouldn't fire two rounds in a row without jamming.
    Star Super B 9mm. Great design, but consistently jammed. Other, later Stars worked fine for me.

    Triggers from hell: Charter Arms Undercover .38. The SA trigger broke at about 2 pounds, while the DA went at about 40 pounds, an engineering feat that seems impossible.
    But my All-Time Happiest To Go were a Ruger P 89 9mm, an S&W 909, and an S&W 3953. With those guns, I wondered if a Shetland Pony could be trained to a special harness to pull the DA triggers on the damned things. When I realized that instead I'd need a brace of Budweiser Clydesdales to lever the trigger pulls, I gave up and sold them.

    By the way, all were sold - at bargain prices - with full disclosure to the buyers.

    I had a SKS rifle with a fixed mag sold that for $200.00, $75.00 more than I bought it for. Also a S&W 442 airweight, couldnt hit the broad side of a barn with that.

    Found some sort of a double-barreled shotgun in the closet after my grandmother-in-law died. It was completely in pieces. Of course I put it back together and tried to shoot it. If I held the latch closed, it would fire... sometimes both barrels at one time. I ended up trading it for a Safariland belt and holster for my S&W M-17. I though it was a good trade.
