      Question What's the worst Pos handgun out there?

      What is The worst P.O.S. hand gun you have ever had the misfortune of shooting or owning?

      I would have to say the Hi-point Cf-380 fits that catagory for me.I still swear the frame is made from recycled milk jugs.It's a good thing I didn't own it!

      Although I didn't own it, my friend had a 3" barrel 1911 style Llama that would NOT cycle no matter what he/we did. He did everything short of sending it off. He had one previously that worked fine and gave that one to his mother. We warned him not to buy another for himself as he was just LUCKY on the first one. But he said "ohhhh no, for $200 how can you go wrong. He later damn near gave it away a month or so later just so he wouldn't have to look at it (or listen to us!) anymore.

      A friend of mine got a High Point .40 S&W at a gun show for 90 bucks. It actually cycled really well but was the most inaccurate bulky POS ever... and not inaccurate like a few inches left or right, High or Low, like bad enough that it was almost scary. Because the slide is milled out of a solid piece of aluminum it is really heavy and the frame is a super cheesy plastic the recoil was astronomical.

      The one with no ammo

      Really. The worst one I ever shot was a Hastings..It was as ugly as it was useless as a pistol. That gun is not made under the Hi- Point name. I figured they make them big and ugly like that for those people stuck in 70's cop dramas where the bad guy has a jam or runs out of ammo and throws it at the good guy. I'd say if the big honkin' thing was to hit someone it would definitely make a mark

      As a shooting tool? I guess they can be listed as a single shot..hahahaaaa!

      Some one gave me a .22 revolver with the initials RG on it and it only has a 1'' barrel. On the frame it says it was made in Miami FL so I know RG does not stand for ruger. It does not matter what kind of ammo I use I cant even hit a pop can 3 yards away.

      The awful CZ100. I cannot express how difficult to shoot well the CZ100 is, at least in .40 caliber, in addition to being totally unreliable in the example I very briefly owned.

      Fortunately, I bought it for only $100, and was able to trade it for a used S&W 19 in very good condition. Ah, the suckers at that gun shop.

      I have a Raven Arms .25. I keep losing pieces to it but It's not that great anyway. I can't trust the saftey so I have to keep the chamber empty until i want to shoot it. I haven't shot it in over fifeteen years.

      A Ruger 44 mag Black Hawk I believe it was. Nothing wrong with the gun other than it hurt like hell to shoot. In my book it's the wrong design for a cartridge with that much power. There was no way I could keep the gun from rotating in my hand. Every shot the web of my hand would end up jammed hard up against the hammer channel. Too much force and no support with that western six shooter design.

      I've had nothing but problems with Ruger pistols. Two P-97 .45's that would not feed the last round from the magazine (one was a replacement for the first) and a P-345 that had so many issues it would stress my typing skills trying to list them all.

      1. Start with a good gun
      2. Ask about 10,000 operators and wannabes to list features they want.
      3. Add all the features on the list regardless of weight and price.

      End up with the HK Mk.23. Accurate, reliable, yes... Overengineered, overbuilt, oversize, overweight and overpriced. Probably the best gun to shoot... if you are wearing a spacesuit.

      In HK's defense, you give the customer what they ask for, even when they are wrong.

      my brother and law's gun

      It was a .25 caliber zinc pistol (i blocked out the name - edit - Lorcin) - it basically shoots 1 round and jams
      - I cleaned it - it jammed/ I field stripped it and cleaned/oiled it - it jammed - I broke it down to it's component parts, and it jammed.

      -at least its consistent

      I actually like my Sigma - no FTF or ejector problems after 1000 rounds.

      I don't know anybody who liked this gun,
      just not very well designed:

      When I had my FFL I had to have a 1911 45 Auto so I bought an Auto Ordinance 1911. It wouldn't feed a full mag thru without either feed or extraction failures (2 to 3 per 7 round mag). In addition it wasn't accurate. With the FFL it cost $250 ands I took it to a gunsmith and put another $250 into it. He put in a match grade BBL, a full length guide rod and spring and polished the feed ramp. I had him also take the front sight down a little and he tighten it up. Once I got it back it was fully functional, accurate and for the most part reliable (Except truncated bullets) but it was still an Auto ordinance that I put $500 into in 1992. I would have to say that was the worst and I still have it.

      I bought a Sterling Pocket Pistol way back in the early 80's and it was the cheapest little auto that you could get with a trigger that is gritty and and off the pull scale but the little sucker is reliable and accurate way out to 3-4 feet. I still have it and I'm waiting for a gun buyback program that will pay at least $100 cash for it.

      Sounds like a Jennings from the late 80's early 90's

      Haha....I have one of those,my father-in law gave me.It just sits in the bottom of the lock box.I should get it out and see how well those subsonic type rounds would due in it.It might make a good tackle box gun just in case you have a turtle that keeps picking at your stringer of fish.

      That is the best description of the Mk. 23 I have ever read! Nicely done.
