    I don't regret buying ANY gun I have ever bought.

    I DO regret selling some of them though!

    I did regret doing a trade for a Springfield Armory Champion V-10. I traded a perfectly good Glock for the POS...and it wouldn't even reliably feed ball ammo.

    I had to invest another $250 to make it run reliably, and lost my tush when I traded it for another Glock because I couldn't sell/trade it in good conscience knowing it was a turd.

    So, I guess that is close to regret!

    guns I regret buying

    Two guns I regret buying is Jiminez Arms 22 semi auto that I bought at a gun show, it was a jammomatic and a Davis 380 that looked like it was made out of pig iron and put together my a blind monkey.. This was before I found this forum. I will never buy another firearm before getting recommendations from firearm forums like this one.

    Springfield Armory 1911 PX9109X "Loaded"
    It was kind of ironic with the name loaded I could not get it "loaded". The barrel ramp looked and felt like grooved concrete. It would only chamber "Powerball" ammo. I tried WWB, Remington 230gr ball, Cor-Bon 165gr DPX and 230gr HP, Federal Hydra-Shock 230 gr and everything else I had in my AMMO SAFE. Thats right, I have enough for it to have its own home.
    My co-worker had the exact same problem, sent the gun back to SA and it came back with a broken thumb safety. We don't discuss this firearm much anymore. I didn't give SA the opportunity to make it right, it became a gun show casualty. I think the problem was stamped on the side of the firearm-Made in Brazil. This is not your SA you get that's made in Illinois or my REAL Springfield Armory M1 Garand that was made by the real SA in Mass.

    I never looked at this thread before. Geez, there are all sorts of good guns here I'd be very pleased to take off people's hands: Winchester '94s, Ruger 10/22s, Glock 17s.

    I have a rather long list of guns that sucked. The capper was probably a non-AR Bushmaster piston carbine that wouldn't feed five consecutive rounds.

    I regret buying my HK UPSc - it set such a high standard that nothing quite measures up - except for the P2000SK that I carry today.

    I feel the same way H&K has spoiled me for pistols and rifles. My HK 91 .308 is a smooth shooting rifle as well as my .40 USPc. I am waiting for the HK 416 to open to the public one day. I did just by a Beretta PX4 Storm and like it a lot because it is similar to my HK USPc.

    Back to the subject, I once owned a chrome Desert Eagle .44 mag. What a POS! I was young and in love with the thought of owning a cannon. It was not tactical at all. I think it was a movie phase I was going through. It also jammed constantly.

    I'm not sure if it was regret, but I bought and sold a Ruger P90. It worked, was reliable, reasonably accurate (3" groups at 25 yards), but just didn't get it for me. The trigger was Ok, not great, it always felt a little awkward in my hand. All that being said it was a serviceable 45. I bought a Springfield V16 Long Slide right after selling the P90 and have never been happier with any gun purchase. It shoots sub inch at 25 yards, shoots 45 ACP or 45 Super without a hitch, feels great in my hands and looks good too. It's my carry gun as well.

    Taurus PT-111 Millennium edition... it was so cheap and looked so nice. Buyer remorse for sure.

    Sold it quick.

    I regret buying a Sig P290 as it is not accurate enough for my needs.

    How in heck do you conceal that weapon? I have a S&W 1911 5inch barrel and every time outside of winter I carry it cops stop me and ask for ID cause it imprints on my shirt but I really love that pistol.

    SOB holster, though it will definitely print in the summer but that's a pretty short season here. The holster I have is made for a full size 1911 which isn't all that secure for a long slide so I'm looking to have a custom holster like this Horseshoe Holster made for it ...




    I've had it for twelve years but don't carry every day. I only carry when I'm out in the mountains, have to go to a bad neighborhood, or on a long trip. Though I know when you think you'll least need it you do ...

    Haven't really "regretted" buying any guns but my first was a S&W MP9. Shot great, never a problem and has a 17 round standard magazine BUT it has no hammer and no safety. With a safety and hammer you can look at a gun you've had stored for months and know what state its in!

    My oldest son, just did the opposite. He sold his Kimber Crismon Carry in 45 ACP and bought an S&W M&P Tactical in 9mm and loves it. Myself I like the 1911s

    All guns are loaded.

    Even the ones i KNOW i unloaded before locking hem up with no mag in them.
    The only way to check, is to clear the chamber. Repeatedly.
    But that is just me.

    I dont think i would say i regretted any i have bought. But have let a few go with no remorse. FeG PA63 comes to mind. Great carry guns. Went bang every time. Kicked pretty good. But i let thwm go for he simple reason up to fire o. The slide safety. Too bass ackwards for me.

    A Buffalo Arms that was made in Spain , Spanish made gun, most of which dealers don't want ,,,on a trade even a sucker dealer will only usually give you ten cents on the dollar twenty max. Years ago I purchased some on looks and reason because they were made on Brownings tested design,however it took years to finally get rid of that stuff and I lost my butt.
    I think I said it all!

    Exclamation Winchesterless man with a big safe to fill

    Bought a used 30-30 Winchester on a whim several years ago. It did not cost much, works perfectly, and is in great shape. Found out real quick that it is not that much fun to shoot all day.

    I regret it only because it's taking up valuable room in the safe.

    Side note: Now I really laugh when I watch the old westerns. They never run out of ammo and the rifle has no recoil at all. Yeah, right.


    Reply:

    That's odd.... That is probably going to be my next purchase! How bad do you want that room in your safe? (It's not a Marlin, I hope)

    My biggest regret has been the Sig Pro 2022 in .40 caliber. Although it is a great gun the take down procedure is a nightmare for me. The slide is extremely tight and you have to hold it back mid-way to dismantle it. I simply lack the hand strength necessary to accomplish this.

    It was my first handgun many years ago and almost kept me from buying another handgun, that gun had serious accuracy issues.

    Interesting. My Series 70 and .22lr conversion unit are like the sun rising in the East, they work every time. Regarding guns I regret buying, a S&W Bodyguard .38 revolver. Less than 50 rounds and the cylinder loosened to the point timing became an issue. Sent it back to S&W. When it was returned, the cylinder loosened right back up after less than 20 rounds. That was enough for me.

    Really,I hope you're a collector.Shooter,no.If you're going to pay more than a good Marlin buy a BLR.

    Only gun I regret buying I still own and is a tack driver.Could not find an adjustable sight Sig Trailside so picked up a fixed model.Shoots great but they obviously didn't test sight this one.That rear is Kimber tight too.

    I regret buying a Bersa 380 Concealed Carry, about a month or so ago. I bought it because it had excellent reviews on several gun enthusiast sites that I searched, and seemed like a great price. Never even got to shoot it. Went to take it apart to clean and oil before using, and it would not break down. I took it back and the guys at the gun shop could not break it down either. I exchanged it and another $80 (worth every penny to be shed of that piece of junk) for a Sig P250 (which I absolutely LOVE!!!) Did a google search on the CC problem and found several posts where people said things like "Had to sand/file down the top of the barrel to get it to break down properly, but after doing so, it works great!" Or, "had to sand down some burrs along the rails and/or slide but now works great with no problems." I am sorry, but in my book, that is called poor design and craftsmanship. If I purchase a new firearm I should not have to make modifications to make it functional. I will personally never buy another Bersa product.

    Easy, my Browning Buckmark. What is a limited edition and extra costly model was a problem from day one and is still a problem.Right now my local gunsmith has it . It came with a warped front sight and Browning REFUSED to send me a replacement sight. Then the cycling problems started. I tried a second mag and seven (7) types of ammo,sub -sonic to high velocity. Nothing helped. I asked Browning for suggestions as to what could cause such a problem in a new pistol but,they just said send it to us and in 4 to 10 weeks they will figure it out. Up to 10 weeks plus mailing time on a new gun-thanks a lot. I wrote to their CEO twice but ,no help came so now the gunsmith has it. How disappointing !
