    Strange, but I had the exact same experience with the same gun back in the 80's. Luckily, I didn't have same problem with brass in my face, but I got rid of it by trading it back to the dealer for a Ruger Security Six .357mag. Turned out to be one of the best guns I ever owned.

    I fell for that to, only gun I ever regreted buying. Bought it about 15 years ago at a gun show for about $90 new, so cheap I just had to try it. It couldn't go through a mag without jamming. Totally unreliable, not accurate for even that small of a gun, and not really even fun to shoot.

    I still have it in the back of the safe as I can't sell it to anyone with a clean conscience.

    I have a bunch.

    Taurus Model 83, a joke. Bad rifling made it lead up big time. NEW

    AMT Hardballer Longslide .45 A dud from day one. Went back to AMT, still had feed problems and they scratched it all up. NEW

    Colt .45 Government Model. Sloppy fit on the slide, lots of feeding issues. USED

    AMT Back-Up .380 DAO. I'm a big guy, and not weak, but it was really really hard to pull the trigger. Damn thing jammed too. NEW. A trip to AMT got the pull reduced to about 40 pounds (A guess), and then it had problems with not hitting the primers hard enough.

    FTL Auto Nine .22 The thing HAD to have one particular brand of "standard velocity " ammo, any other would either fail to cycle the slide, and anything stronger would blow the extactor off. NEW

    S&W model 59. Picky about ammo to the point of insanity. I finally sold it after a trip to S&W seemed to accomplish nothing. USED.

    I had one of those FEG DA HP variants. It took a lot of work to get it to feed ok, and a lot more to get the trigger anything close to what it should have been. Trigger guard was so sharp it cut my finger all to hell on the first shot.
    Too much work. Once it was all done, it did shoot ok. Sold it to my neighbor who really liked it, and he gave it to his kid.

    An XD 9mm in the 4" barrel. I took it to the range and it shot worse than any handgun I have ever had. I also disliked the location of the disassembly lever. So, I took it back to Scheels Sports Store and they gave me full trade in value on a Glock 17. I'm not totally in love with the G 17 either but it definitely is better for me than the XD.

    It's a little funny, but I am a big fan of the larger frame/slide Glocks but not the smaller frame models and that may be why I didn't take to the 4" XD. I love my G34 and in many ways it is my fave gun. I also shoot a G35 in competition and my home defense gun is a G 21 with night sights. I shot a G 19 at a local indoor range and I didn't care for it at all. Unintentionally, I think I insulted the gun range owner when I said I didn't care for the G 19 I just rented. Then, he took the gun and put it in his holster. It was his carry gun. Oh well...............

    Rock River Arms Elite Commando...

    Nice looking on the outside but not inside...also was a jamm-o-matic. Non-existent customer service topped it all off. Worst $1600 i've ever spent.

    Llama 45

    I bought a Llama .45 ACP after about a year, I noticed a major crack that went across entire frame from retaining pin hole across the other side. I almost missed it.

    Bought an MISR-90, what a POJ! Parts breakage issues, jammatic. Traded for an uber-reliable SKS that I still have.

    FIE 380

    Long story, made short...

    About 15 years ago a guy owed my some cash, so I took a handgun as payment. New in box, never fired. Shot 12 rds though it and frame broke, still have it too.

    Never had one until last weekend. Kimber Pro Carry HD II. So far it has been the biggest POS I have ever owned. It will be going back to Kimber if they get their act together and get the UPS pick up order done that they promised me on thursday that never materialized.

    So far the follow through at the custom shop sucks too.

    I guess the closest I come to regreting a purchase is a Kimber Tactical Custom II. It's been an OK gun, with a few FTFs and stovepipes, but I regret that I bought it before I had a clear idea of what I wanted it for. Kimber's Tactical series all have alloy frames. If I was going to get an alloy fram, I should have gotten the Pro (4") not the 5". Wish I had gotten a steel frame 5". Somewhere down the line I'll get a Wilson Combat and be done with 1911s.

    Taurus PT-22

    I bought a brand new PT-22 as a birthday gift for my wife. We took it out to fire it and found that the firing pin would not strike the cartridge with enough force to cause detonation about 30% of the time. We tried different brand bullets with the same result. We also had a jam.

    I returned the gun to Taurus and called a week later to check the status and was told that all repairs take 5-6 weeks. This is an outrage! Repair would be fine but this gun was defective right out of the box and should be replaced immediately.

    Obviously I will never buy another Taurus! They are junk!

    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.
