What's the most garbage gun you've ever shot?

What's the most garbage gun you've ever shot?
I had a Clement 1909 that stovepiped on every shot, the rear frame cracked open at a spot that had been brazed at some point in the past (the crack wasn't there when I bought it), and the grips fit poorly.

    Mosin Nagant. especially wartime manufactured ones, although even my prewar is a basket case of poor machining.

      Probably my Mosin

      based. I got fomo because I remember all the PrepHoleommandos with them back in 2013 and looked at the current prices. Not worth holding onto for a decade to net $250

        I bought one for $76 in 2012 and then sold it for $350 in 2016 and bought a Shield, spare mags, holster, and a few boxes of ammo. So in that sense, my Mosin was a great purchase.

      The mosin i had was a beat up POS and a better shooter than me managed 2.5moa with it.
      I clapped a meter wide plate set up on the hill of the local open range at 320 yards once, taking standing pot shots with a bad 100y zero, doing the yards to arshin conversion for elevation adjustment on the fly.

        no b8 m8. pull apart a Mosin bolt and look at the machining. bought two when they were <$100 a piece, traded one for a chinese SKS and kept the prewar.

    S&W performance center 38 snubnose that came from the factory with the barrel screwed on wrong causing it to hit like 6" to the left at only 10 yards.

    Next worst was a S&W 686 that had a forcing cone so rough that you basically couldn't use cast bullets at all because of the rapid lead build up.

    S&W is by far the worst company out there and I will never buy their products again.

      S&W seems to have 'Friday arvo specials' once in a while when the boys got into a liquid lunch and CBF'ed doing much more than putting it together.

      I think the worst gun I've had anything to do with was a milsurp SKK a friend bought at the same time I had one, mine was fairly good, it wasn't great but it bedded in ok and would mostly hit pig sized targets at 100m. His was just fucked though, honestly it was probably run over by a forklift in the factory or the sights got assembled by some wall eyed cunt to the point we tried all sorts of shit but it'd never hit the same place twice. Eventually he just sort of sneakily traded it in on a new gun and didn't tell anyone how fucked it was

    I got what I’m assuming was a lemon Glock 17. It would stovepipe every 2 or 3 shots. Secured it in a vice and the problem still persisted. Sold it to some tard for 10 more than I paid for it. Friend had one as well and I put about 500 shots through it and it only stoved once so I guess it’s not an altogether terrible gun but not good either

      I have owned ten Glocks and have fired tens of thousands of rounds through them and the only malfunction I've ever experienced was a Glock 43 subcompact that wouldn't reliably feed Underwood +p+ ammo. Literally not one malfunction other than that, not even in a Glock 34 that I put almost 1000 rounds of Tula through without cleaning it.

        Oh okay that’s interesting. I’ve talked to multiple people at gun shows (over 30) who’ve all experienced similar issues with their glocks. Maybe you got lucky?

          I've heard that Glocks occasionally struggle to feed low-powered range ammo because they are designed to survive a steady diet of NATO/+p ammo. The springs are strong, and that can cause failure to fully cycle with weak American ammo like Blazer. It's never happened to me but that's what I've heard. Try using hotter ammo like Winchester, Tula, Speer lawman, order a lighter spring, or just stop limp wristing the gun like a little girl.

            Only ever use +p, didn’t even know less than that existed in 9mm. May as well be shooting .25 with how weak 9mm fairs

    Century Arms C39v2.
    Something was wrong with the trigger and I'd have to manually flick it forward after each shot.
    I sold it off and used the money to buy a different gun.
    I think that was what I used to get the C308, which has been MUCH more reliable.

      I always thought it would be cool to learn very basic gunsmithing, i.e. diagnosing drag, polishing, and maybe re-blueing, on janky ass .32s and .25s.

        do it. skip the bluing.

        if you want to learn about how the shit actually works, look through some 3d models and operation videos from world of gunsmithing

        (likely redundant)

        ?t=467 (carcano, one method)

        ?t=340 (possibly easier)

        ?t=707 (same video, how to improve the finish)
        Fuck skipping the bluing. Just remember to do some good surface prep before starting the bluing. Degrease with non chlorinated brake cleaner (acetone) and at least attempt to polish before bluing unless you want a somewhat dull finish (see: luger video). You will be using 3M 1500 and 2000 grit automotive sandpaper (Walmart ~$10) in a singular direction back and forth (IIRC) to maximize the shine. IIRC, sanding in circles gives a scratched appearance in the finish which is why I say that. You'll be sanding for a while if you want to do that. Completely flat surfaces like the Carcano trigger guard in the last video should be sanded with an improvised sanding block or should be rubbed across a sheet of sandpaper adhered to a piece of granite countertop scrap by putting water under it to prevent rounding off corners. Don't go too crazy sanding (especially at lower grits) as you are removing material. You want ever get all the pits unless it's extremely minor, you just want to improve surface finish.

        Wear gloves, too! Nitrile gloves prevent skin oils from getting on the gun, preventing rusting, resulting in a blotchy finish, etc. if not work during prepping, rusting, and boiling. Oil it after you're done boiling for the final time with mineral oil or IIRC Ballistol (mostly mineral oil?) or you'll have a rusty gun again. When carding (scrubbing after boiling), be sure to only use #0000 steel wool and use a gentle touch. BEFORE starting, you can use citric acid and dish soap in water to remove the original surface finish. While rust bluing, the cleaner it is, the better. Don't be afraid to douse the gun in brake cleaner.

    Friend of mine bought a hipoint in .45 ACP. It was a gift to his father. We all went out to the range to fire it and others we had. His dad emptied a mag, then my friend, then me. It was awful. I loaded the mag and handed it back. Three rounds into the 4th mag, it blew up right in his hand.

    Remington 522 viper. I had a nugget with all matching parts in decent condition that I traded for it in 2013. That piece of shit jammed every 2 shots even on the most polished mag. I really wish I had kept my nugget.

    >sights
    sights are obstructive
    height over bore is ridiculous

    >ergo
    move your hand 1 inch forward or back on the handguard, you're going to burn yourself
    safety is small and far from the grip
    pistol grip puts your wrist in a bent position
    the stock on this particular gun was falling apart because the wood around the bolt holding it was 1/2" thick
    heavy for no reason other than poor manufacturing capabilities

    >operation
    never accurate because of the bendy receiver and non free floating barrel
    recoil is excessive for the meek cartridge, partially due to the bolt slamming into the back of the receiver by design
    rock and lock mag catches miss sometimes

    >etc
    expensive because zoomer fags that like mosins or whatever
    cringey fanbase
    supports commies
    unamerican

    ill still probably finish my parts kit and keep it around for show
    more interesting to look at than shoot tbh

    Friend brought a friend to the range with us and he happened to bring "a good gun my grandpa gave me". It was a fucking Jimenez 9mm. The thing just refused to function beyond a couple rounds at a time and I'm fairly positive he is borderline retarded or was drunk and high at the time of shooting, but I repeat myself. I should have left when he pulled it out.

    always and forever CZ 75 P-01

    when they say the platform has a great aftermarket they really mean "to make this a usable, reliable, tool you'll need to throw away literally every internal component." quality on the P-01 was shockingly poor for a gun that's priced to compete with walther and beretta and HK and SIG, pic related is the factory firing pin that broke off on a snapcap - obligatory if you want to dry fire train, especially single action / double action transitions. the gun barely had 200 rounds through it. I also noticed the firing pin retaining pin was also almost cracked though when I replaced the firing pin.

        ask any CZ fanboy and they'll call the retaining pin thing a myth in the current production CZ's. I can only make judgments on the information given and when half the reviews are bought and paid for by CZ, and the other half are fanboys that piece of wisdom gets lost and you end up learning the hard way what a complete disaster they are from the factory like I did.
