          Covid caused a drop in QC at PTR, several anons that panic bought guns they’d been putting off getting for ages and are salty till this day that they got lemons at a time when shipping and supplies around the world were fricked, as if the two weren’t related. One moron, probably in this thread, wouldn’t even call customer service despite PTR’s being very good, and rage-sold his gun without seeking any customer RMA service.

          PTR is fine now, but those are production years to look out for.

      My biggest regrets are PTR-91, Century (PTR-made) C93, and SCAR-16S. I've also regretted selling some guns, notably my Sako 85 Bavarian to fund college expenses.

      what's up with all the people regretting buying ptr's? my friend and I both have one and we love them, also everyone else I know irl loves them as well

        It's a radically different manual of arms from say an AR and it practically demands you manhandle the shit out of it, which is going to be odd and unnerving for most shooters.
        The safety was designed to be manipulated while the rifle is being raised from carry/ low ready when grip is broken - not when shouldered.

        Trigger is average for a military trigger (heavy) and worse than AR milspec.

        Recoil impulse is strange and feels delayed and heavy. PTR does buyers a disservice not shipping these with enhanced buffers.

        Most importantly however is new shooters usually get bashed in the face by the arch of the fixed stock because they crowd up on it like they would an AR.

        But it's fricking worth it, a PTR out of the box shoots as good as most AR-10's - ie very accurate, the sights are fantastic and easy to work with, and all the gremlins about the system can be modded away easily - a trigger pack from Timney for the trigger snobs, inline stocks for the sois, extended safeties for the AR guys.

        Aside from that, recently PTR has seen quality control drop post 2020 so we're seeing shit like wrong sized locking pieces and rollers in new production guns which makes felt recoil worse and increases wear prematurely.

          C93s very common issue that they run better with brass and turn into bolt actions with steel. Have not read anyone saying they've fixed it. Have not delved deep into hkpro forums though.

          Yet it still manages to be relevant because your minor issues are fixed with modernized parts, and the mechanical accuracy of the G3 is superb, what other semi auto is going to eat steel case .308 all day and group under 2MOA? AR-10's choke on that shit, and good quality ammo puts the G3 in the 1moa ballpark anyway

            So in other words, it's only good for shooting garbage ammo, and if you spend a bunch of money on aftermarket parts and high-quality ammo, it'll be almost as good as a mid AR-10

      Sorta regret my ptr-91 but for different reasons. It's fun as hell to shoot and I like the engineering that makes it tick but I live in California and I hadn't considered how bad of a deal magazines are for it. Having to rely on the few sources that have pinned g3 mags fricking sucks, pinned mags run a premium especially when they aren't AR15 or 10 pattern mags. Also, I knew I would have to manhandle it but I never knew exactly how much strength it would take to wiener it. I have to shove forward with my right shoulder while yanking the charger with my left hand.

Unpleasant all around especially compared to a FAL, which is tragic because it looks way better.

        The main thing that annoys me is the fact they never really offered a PTR-91 without the welded rail in the black powder coat finish
        They made a limited run version of the A3S without the rail, but they didn't make many of them.
        Also the fact they stopped making one with the wide handguard also sucks.

    Sort of. I bought this P-09 ten years ago and it has been a great gun, but I really wanted the SP-01. I bought the P-09 because it was technically "better" in every way on paper, but it has never felt as good in my hand as a SP-01. Since then, I've bought what feels right rather than what has the best specs sheet.

        Not that guy but I have one and the finish is weak, there’s tooling and machining marks everywhere, the action is rougher than a 100 year old Winchester, and the screws splinter if you look at them wrong. Also it only fires 2-3 out of 6 rounds if you’re lucky.

        On the other hand, it came with a nice recoil pad, chrome-lined bore and Winchoke already threaded in.

      That sounds like an out of spec mag catch or the part of the mag the catch touches or whatever other surface it locks with. Remington Mohawks have the same issue. Have to take the mag catch button off, take the spring out, bend it, and reinsert, reassemble. Does not hold mag as strongly but the angle it's held at changes to one that makes feeding nearly 100% reliable. Stupid QC or part bending issues. The amount of morons claiming to just glob JB weld on a $30 magazine on youtube is amazing. Just file, JB Weld it, etc. And it's KINDA reliable wowowowowow! Meanwhile a screwdriver to remove it and two pliers to bend it once removed fix the problem.

      Same
      Decided on a compact and was talked into a 43. The longer I had it the less I shot it.
      Was then talked into 43x. Liked the size for deep conceal but hated the accuracy (cluster too big) and overall build quality.
      Decided on my own to try the P365. Liked the size, build quality, and cluster but did not like how it felt in the hand (too small). Tried a longer mag but lost deep conceal. Finally settled on the oe 10rd mag with pinky extension.
      Traded the 43x back in. Still have the 43 but it will be my next trade in.

        I've never liked Glocks. They're too good, too utilitarian. It doesn't feel like you're holding a gun, it feels like you're holding a drill. You pull the trigger and it goes bang, and a hole appears where you aimed it. There's no passion at all. It's a gun made by an Austrian sociopath.
        Every country's guns have a their own character. Italian guns are smooth and sexy, Germans are overcomplicated and kinda autistic, Americans are "frick yeah" badass machines designed to bring joy to your inner 13-year-old, Israelis are big, overcompensating, mean-looking things, like a kid who got bullied in school who started working out and got huge, Russians are designed to be repaired with a hammer and a flathead screwdriver that doubles as a chisel, and they don't work unless you beat the shit out of them and make them respect you. Austrians are minimalist, cold tools. I don't like them.

        I edc the P365 and put around 200 a month through it.
        I tried an optic but I was just as accurate without one at 25 yards so it's off.

        The 17 I do like in hand because how looong the grip is. I agree on both 43s, didn't like how it felt or shot. I want to try the P365

        >I want to try the P365

        I'd recommend the P365x or xl. The standard P365 is great but just too small for my hands without some kind of mag extension.

    Clapped out police surplus Model 10 courtesy of Sweaty Ben (replaced with a decent condition one that was only $100 more)
    Clapped out Model 49 (replaced with a good condition Model 49 that was only about $100 more)
    20" heavy barrel AR that I assembled (it was a heavy rifle that I had no practical use for and was hard to resell)
    Other than that, I've been pretty pleased so far.

      Get another barrel and do this, it's so worth it. I live in gay ass Washington so I legally can't, but a SBS Auto 5 / Model 11 with the barrel cut super short, almost flush with the magazine tube, is the best shotgun ever.

      Cut the Remington Model 11 barrel down to 19 inches and fix the firing pin, then cut the butt stock down to an overall length of 27 inches. Those shotguns are a lot of fun and are surprisingly cheap considering that they come from an era where craftsmen who actually cared about their trade still hand fitted guns like that.

        It's long since sold. Would be fun to do that to another gun though. I still want to SBR my Auto 5 with a second barrel, it's just that they're like $200 or more and I got other stuff to buy rn.

    Ruger GSR in 556. It seems like every other round when I work the bolt the case will not reject and just gets caught on the ejector spring claw,so I gotta reach for it and pull it out. Great if I were reloading but it's 556. Shouldn't complain cause I got it half off since it was being discontinued

    FN made Browning SA-22
    Smith & Wesson Model 18
    And CZ75B kind of.

    I live in Hellgium and bought the SA-22 and the S&W from an old guy with dementia. Both were pretty cheap but had to look more into them before I bought, I just wanted a decent cheap .22 semi auto and revolver. The guy (or a previous owner) had done a lot of crappy filing on the front sight area of the barrel, the front sight was an airgun sight glued in place with TEC-7 silicone glue. Rear sight is also not an original and has been filed for some reason. Got rid of the sights but the slots they're in were filed out so no other sights will fit in them. Also after about 30-40 shots the barrel comes loose and I have to tighten it which is really annoying and removes the possibility of using a scope on it since the scope is mounted on the receiver. If I just had waited a year longer, 2 Belgian made SA-22 were sold at my range for €50 each in nearly mint condition, one even including an ancient red dot.

    The Model 18 is just a 4" revolver and I can't really get tight groups with it at 25m for some reason, while I have no trouble with 6" barrels. Just a skill issue I guess but I don't use the revolver anymore because of it.

    The CZ75B I got for €200, it was a police trade in that was in very good condition but I can't shoot well with it even though I've trained with it a lot and ammo is just getting more expensive by the day. Planning to sell it to some zoomer who thinks it's cool because of video games. I also use a CZ 75 Tactical Sports, which I do get very good results with.

          Every 21" FAL I've ever shot, esp L1A1's, had barrel whip issues.
          Alot of the kit built FAL's had clapped/eroded gas blocks, the amount of FAL builds that have needed full gas/near full gas to cycle I have encountered have been unreal.
          FAL on full gas = worse than G3 recoil
          DSA new manufactured parts didn't make the problem better, but worse because of their shoddy QC.
          For every good FAL there are 3 problem child FAL's - and guess what at least 1 of them is a DSA anyway.
          DSA's only competition now is gunsmith who'll take on kit builds, PTR however has stiff competition orienting itself between Dakota Tactical, H&K, MKE, Century,and Zenith - and MKE is eventually going to drop G3's on the US market right below PTR's price point

          DSA AR's have been average g2g, their problems have been with FAL parts tolerances historically - SA58 recievers improperly threaded, metric barrels with too long of a breech unable to headspace. Carbine barrels with oversized gas ports unable to cycle the list goes on, DSA has been overrated for a long, Long time

    Sporterized MAS 36.
    I impulse bought it seeing that it was cheap and in good condition, and I figured that I could fix it relatively cheaply and easily.
    I later found out that these sporterizations cut off a couple inches of barrel, not enough to make mounting an original forend impossible but enough to make it look weird and impossible to properly restore. I could thread the barrel and put a muzzle brake to get roughly the correct barrel length, but given my current living and financial situation, I don't really feel like it would be worth it anyway.
    I'm not too upset since at the very least, it was an interesting design I learned from and I could probably get rid of it for more than it cost me to buy. That or sell it to a friend that likes French guns.

Wish I never popped the AR cherry and fell into the accessory rabbit hole.

          Heard that a lot. However sometimes boomer ARE just hocking expensive crap at you. And as a new gun shopper it’s impossible to know what you’ll want 5 years down the line. My main strategy was to just stop buying for a while. I bought my shitty compact and a fun .22 revolver then sat on it for a while. Eventually through online research and getting some lucky range time with friends who owned a lot of guns, I was able to hone in my buying in better products. But still wasted a lot of money on my AR because all mods look the same. Until they break. Oh well. I came okay and didn’t blow too much money, and didn’t buy anything too junk. Still. I wish I had bought that Marlin 45-70 rifle years ago. Now it’s almost 500-600 bucks more expensive and I have a much tighter budget.

    This thing sucks ass. It's a 9mm blowback that weighs nothing, meaning after every shot the muzzle is pointed straight up and you have to find the target again. Only bought it because my grandpa who was a Nam vet came over at like 7 in the morning and asked me to buy it off of him.
    Looks like a CP2077 gun, which is kinda neat.

        It's my favorite gun in my collection and I'm so happy I can carry it, it's super comfortable. It's somehow way more accurate than my 92x compact kitted out with WC and LTT parts, which was my first hg and is super disappointing as a shooter. The only change I would recommend for the HC is to an apex trigger.

      Ouch, those are worth good bucks now. But also have tons of issues (IIRC off the top of my head they blow out extractors a lot) so you dodged a bullet honestly. How did the .22 mag silence? I've been considering a manual action .22 mag for game larger than squirrel.

      I got my ptr in 2022. Hell, I only got my first gun in Jan 2020.

      Not to make things worse for the whole market with panic buying/buying shit you don't need but just learn to buy mags for guns you may one day buy. See it cheap? Buy it. And I don't mean "woah dude there's a Dragunov mag for $125 dude I might totally spend $10,000 on one some day so lemme waste money on it and make it unavailable for someone who actually needs it" but more like "hey I do want an AR / AK / 10/22 / Glock / 1911 / Ruger MK / Mini14 / whatever in the next 5 years and it's a used mag and only $5-10 and not aftermarket junk!" I do it. I have mags for at least one gun I don't own. I was going to grab some mini14 mags if they went cheap enough and some for an M14 since it's almost a given I'll come across one and if I don't end up needing them, I'd sell/trade them later.

        There are several known FAL smith's/Kit builders, Arizona Response Systems is most well known. Check his website.

        The thing is the G3 market IS getting better - PTR has competition in the HK clone sphere so they can only slack off for so long and they do not have the market cornered in new manufactured parts/recievers/etc. Even without the looming threat of turkish G3's and HK33's you have RCM and several other manufacturers providing bolts/reciever flats, barrels, etc - AND you have Dakota tactical. DSA has the FAL market cornered almost exclusively save for Coonan recievers and whatever slow surplus trickles in. Every 2nd or 3rd world military who has retained the FAL shops DSA for modernization - its that bad.

        If you get a new manf GI-R get headspace gages and be prepared to swap the rollers and locking piece- after that you *should* be ok.

He has a waitlist and him building your fal takes about 6 months but it's because he builds in batches of 30+ and he test fires it to make sure it groups to a good military standard, he tries different ammo tells you what he recommends for your rifle and which gas settings he used all written on the target he used for your build. 10/10 straight to the point no bullshit service.

    I got a rucer ec9s for cheap as shit at a lgs. I figured how hard was it to frick up a polymer stock 9mm well its apparently easy for ruger. Its picky as shit as to what ammo will work, the magazines wont load the bullet in the chamber properly sometimes. I think the ejector or something is off alignment as i find brass flecks inside the mag well and near the chamber pretty often

      If you go to ANY gun show outside of California you'll find boxes of 20 round G3 mags that work perfectly, for $5 - $10 a piece ($10 is robbery, but whatever).
      >how much strength it would take to wiener it
      Weakling...no but seriously yes when you're breaking the rollers free it can be a b***h. Two things, one, annoy your spouse, kids, dog, parrot by constantly walking around the house wienering the rifle over and over and over. To the point you injure your left wrist. Two, go online and buy the extended charging handle (it's only a tad longer, but makes all the difference because you can get a finger behind it and get some leverage), also get the spring with it. I think you can get both for under $20.

        I don't like Glock for multiple reasons.
        Plastic sights that I've broken off or dented.
        That hump in the grip so point of aim doesn't feel that good compared to like my M&P 2.0 line or other guns.
        Grip texture is meh and I always had to stipple my glocks.
        Once I swap sights, cut the hump, stipple the Glock I do like them, but I don't care for stock.

          I like my 17.
          Hated the 43 and 43x enough to trade one of them in for a P365 which, surprisingly to me, I really like.
          I edc the P365 and put around 200 a month through it.

The ammo is hard to find, and $2.20 per round when I do. I bought a vintage Lyman 57 (for double what the rifle cost) that I'll have a gunsmith install one day, and either unfrick or replace the stock. Its cool, but offers me nothing that another rifle couldn't do better, and is going to cost me a ton of money to make usable. Would have been better off passing it up.

    Had the 103 for about a year, put a few thousand rounds through it. Decided to pick up a 101. Shortly after I got the 101 the 103 fricking beat itself to death because they dont rivet their shit right.

    >less than a thousand rounds into the 101 it starts chewing up cases. Swallowed a no-go gauge. Still unsure if it was out of headspace from the fricking factory or if it really did just die that quickly.
    Its what I get for buying PSA and falling for their shilling, I just wish the 103 failed sooner so I wouldve known not to get the 101.

    My Glock 17 Gen 3.

    I own a number of pistols all of which are DA/SA. I thought it might be a fun range gun and I thought it would be handy to get used to it seeing how prolific Glocks are. I bought it lightly used at a great price on consignment.

    It’s too big to carry, I just don’t like it. I don’t hate on people who like Glocks, just not my taste, I feel like I’m aiming down a pack of starbursts. Anyway it’s just sat in my safe collecting dust for the better part of ten years. Occasionally I bring it out if I am bringing a friend shooting and want to give them some variety, or if maybe they are thinking about buying a Glock. It’s not a bad gun, I just wouldn’t bother buying it again.

    Also, all the PTR haters can fly high, I love my 91. Sure it’s not as practical as either of my AR’s but it’s a tack driver, never had any issues, and I love shooting it.

    I have this Winchester Model 1912 that I can't get rid of. Unfortunately, this is the only photo I have of it.
    The slamfire doesn't work, so it doesn't have the trench gun gimmick, and it doesn't have a front sight bead so I can't use it for anything else.
    I have this really cool vintage Nydar sight from the 1940s that would make it cool again, but my gunsmith that I usually use won't install it because he doesn't want to drill holes in a vintage shotgun. I get where he's coming from, but the shotgun's already ruined, the barrel's been shortened and recrowned and someone drilled sling holes in the stock, so it doesn't seem like a big deal. Maybe someday I'll get off my ass and find another gunsmith.

        No, they're usable. They aren't good. The controls are awkward and spread out too far. The charging handle should not be at the end of the fricking barrel.
        Also, CETME L is exactly as reliable as the G3, because it's the same rifle but smaller. Dumbass.

        That's like asking if you've had any bad pussy. Some is better than others but none is truly bad. I've bought guns with problems but have always fixed them

      Exactly how I feel. I want a G3, CETME C, and CETME L. I don't like the look of the rail but it makes sense for functionality if I were to hunt with it. Or god forbid my moronic ass gets into red dots. If claw mount adapters were good and cheap maybe but I don't like having two options or a moronicly expensive surplus scope. And some claw mounts that IIRC have built in rings have the issue of only one scope tube size being usable and no height adjustment and god forbid your scope doesn't work with that ring spacing and...what a nightmare. Yes even the claw to weaver looks nicer but I've learned again and again the less fasteners you can the better.

        Also yes the shorties are 12 round mags but often mislabeled as 10s.

    I somewhat regret buying so many ar-15s since I have several of them set up essentially the exact same way, and I don't really derive a serious amount of comfort or enjoyment out of having several "I can hand this to a buddy in shtf and not worry about it" rifles, and I can't really think of any other reasons to have them. I'm keeping them anyways, but right now there mostly collecting dust while I continually shoot the two I actually like the most.
    The other gun I regret buying is the Mossberg 590 retrograde, it doesn't do anything my 500 didn't and it doesn't bring me the same joy as my actual vintage shotguns.
    Also my LCR fricking sucks to shoot .357 out of and it turns out I really don't like to carry a gun with a shrouded hammer and no manual safety. Can't bring myself to trust it. But it's still a fun little plinker to bring to the range so I don't really regret buying it, especially since it was such a learning experience

            NTA but yeah I have the same question anon. I was looking for a MKII upper for some autistic reasons and thought "Why not just get a new gun and modify that? I mean, it was cheaper to get a new 10/22 than even a new barrel and trigger group so..." and then went WUT at the prices. I might just get a used MKII and find someone to swap the barrel and get someone else to put a rail and sights on it lol. Ok yeah and they no longer make the MK II or even the MK III so no old style grips (because of new slide stop/release) or safeties (previously also a slide stop).

            I just want a MKII with some nicer adjustable sights, a bull barrel, threaded barrel, and tapped for a rail I may or may not even use. And a re-finish that requires all steel construction and preferably blued.

    I was prepared for it to be very mediocre but holy shit did it suck. The trigger was insanely heavy and the recoil impulse was very harsh for a 5.56, it was just a super unpleasant gun to shoot. It was less pleasant to shoot than a G3, which is nuts for a 5.56 gun. My expectations were low and it was far worse than I imagined it would be.

    I sold it a few months after buying it. Pretty disappointing gun.

            Compared to other .32s I've owned they are certainly snappy. I get that they are beautiful guns but will never understand people who simp for them being good shooters.

            I had a Bersa 380 that tore into the webbing of my hand like that. It was absurd because I could shoot my 1911 .45 all day, hundreds of rounds in a single session and not feel a thing. However, one box of 380 through the Bersa and that whole area of my hand felt like it was trying to tear apart.

            I owned one years ago and it was one of the worst pieces of shit I've ever had the displeasure of shooting. I've shot 3-inch .44 mags that were more comfortable. They are absolutely miserable.

        I hate finger grooves so right away that was a ding, the rear of the grip on the A1s is also very uncomfortable (feels better on A2s) that's a ding, I tolerate but don't very much like Glock grip angles so that's another ding, the grip texture flat out sucks requiring Talon grips to fix that's a ding, and both my L9 and M9 were sticky going into battery for a couple hundred rounds, were still not 100% after that, and both practically turned into single shots with a suppressor on the barrel so that's 3 more dings each. The poor trigger and weird sights I could tolerate fine.

    I used to own an 1887 shotgun clone in 12 gauge. Wanted one since I was a teenager and was really excited when I found one for a decent price. Didn’t realize until I bought it how finicky it could be to load the thing, plus it had lots of issues ejecting. Ended up selling it a few years ago. Still kind of miss it, though.

    Also, I don’t necessarily regret buying my SL8, it’s just a bit too bulky and I hate the rail it came with. I really want one of the old long ones, but they’re basically impossible to find now. Only luck I’ve had recently was on airsoft stores.

      Yeah, the 1887 is kind of a fundamentally shitty design, it was made because Winchester wanted a repeating shotgun but wouldn't let John Browning make a pump because they're the lever action guys, so John Browning used it to test out a bunch of ideas like loading through the ejection port and putting a rolling block in a repeater and a bunch of other shit because "nevah been dun befo"

      What is /k/'s opinion on selling your first handgun if it isn't what you expected it to be? My first was a Beretta M9 Commercial model, and although I like shooting it at the range, I find it hard to imagine myself carrying that b***h consistently. I also find the grip to be a bit larger than I find comfortable. It is a blast to shoot though, and LARPing as a 90's action movie protagonist never gets old. I'm highly considering trading it in for my other first pick, which would've been a 1911 or a Glock 19, which I shoot very well and is damn near the perfect handgun.

              I bought the 16lb hammer spring from Beretta and the trigger bar from LTT, and the trigger pull is much nicer. I ended up switching back to the oem trigger bar just to compare, and the difference is noticeable. The trigger job might just do the trick of making the gun crispy, but the solution is honestly more range time and gitting gud.

        I had absolutely no sentimental attachment to the G43, first gun or otherwise. I did actually end up getting a 92fs later on lol. Beretta is a safe bet for a first imo.

        I sold my first handgun, it was a Canik TP9. It was a decent gun, I liked it well enough, not much personality, but it worked okay.
        Then my little brother bought his first handgun. It was a SCCY. Literally the worst pistol I have ever shot. Heavy trigger pull, and the reset was at the very front of the trigger guard so if you didn't let it ride all the way forward after every shot, it would just flop around instead of resetting. Horrible pistol. I felt so bad for the poor little guy that I traded him the Canik for the SCCY. Don't remember what I did with the SCCY, I think I sold it for 50 bucks or something.
        Anyway, don't trade a Beretta for a cheap 1911 or a shitty glock, you fool

    I regret selling my first handgun, a Canik TP9DA. It shot alright but I didn't think it would last long and didn't really need the dewienerer feature. Looking back, it was pretty cool to have and was very aesthetic. The new caniks are lasting much longer than anyone expected them to.
    I sold it for a G19 and I am indifferent to it. It shoots every time but the ergos of a Glock are trash and I'd rather shoot a clone P80 or SCT17.

      >I regret selling my first handgun
      It's for that very reason that I will not part with my M9. It's just too cool. There's just something about it that, even if it wasn't made in Italy, makes me not want to give up on it.

          you downgraded to a glock because
          a) you got a 1 in a million pos Sig
          b) you're an idiot who
          *1) can't shoot
          *2) tried working on your own gun and fricked it up
          Or all of the above.

          Try relaxing next time kiddo.

    M1 Garand. Doesn't eject well, heavy, fires overpowered and expensive special cartridges or else the op rod will buckle and bend.

    Sig Cross .308 - biggest pile of shit. Couldn't get rid of it fast enough. Even with Gold Medal match ammo it shot like shit and Sig only made it worse. Frick that thing.

    What is some of the worst handgun advice you ever received. Can be purchase recommendation or skill/technique related.

      All of the shit and propaganda I heard about the Taurus Judge when it first came out
      People were making it sound like it was a sawed off 12 gauge or something, not .45 Ratshot out of a snub barrel
