Tec-9 for me...couldn't shoot straight to save my life with that gun!!! The biggest/only POS I have ever had. On the plus side it did have an evil high capacity clip

My Hesse FAL. The piston broke after shooting 20 rounds.

Not so fast, try one out. Mine has about 1200 rds of wolf thru it, no jams. Pretty accurate too.

Fortunately, none of them.

I did have one that had some teething problems at first, though. I bought a Smith and Wesson SW99 (walther p99 clone) in .40 S&W a couple of years ago, and it was problematic through the first couple hundred rounds. The problem was always failure to feed. FMJ rounds would just stop halfway up the feedramp. I finally took the Dremel tool and did a little polishing of the feedram and she works like a champ now.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Charles Daley Pump action 12ga Home Defense Shotgun

Biggest POS ever, I traded it for a new AR15 mag

Raven .25 It was hard for me to remove the magazine. Really hard. Really really hard!

Reliability-wise, one of my M1 Carbines...replaced the ejector and extractor and it fixed right up tho.

Function-wise...a Cobray CM-11. The carbine version of their M11/9 pistol. Stupid thing would double/triple-tap if I pulled the trigger slowly...scared the hell out of me, quite frankly, as I am not in a CIII state and couldn't pass it off no matter what I would care to try in front of the po-po.

Remington 597 22LR, jamed ever 3 rounds and it was brand new.

I had a Maverick pump shotgun several years ago.

Actually, that gun wasn't all that bad!

I had a Lorcin .25 auto when I had an apartment in Winston-Salem but when I moved out I left it somewhere in the kitchen I think.

A Universal Carbine. .30 Cal.

Should have been a single shot, which it was...more or less.

Jammaholic POS no matter what.

Link Posted: 9/24/2004 8:30:36 PM EDT
For me an Oly XM-177 clone. It was actually a decent rifle, but it would pop off 2-3 rounds with one trigger pull every now and then, and I did not know enough about AR's yet to fix it......

Easy. A .380 Lorcin w/a 37 inch barrel and a 200 rd preban mag.

Wilkinson Sherry .22 pistol. FTF and inaccurate. Funny though, my father was very accurate with it and it rarely jammed for him. Tiny piece to get your hands on. Planerench out.
Link Posted: 9/24/2004 8:49:27 PM EDT
I didnt own it, but it was this .22LR pump action rifle that jammed after 1 round(holds 15) so you ended up having to reload one bullet every time and pumping it.

I wanted to die. I make fun of the owner every time I see him now.

RG 22 revolver

Wouldnt fire more then 50% of the round, had problems getting spent rounds out of it too.

Mossberg bolt action shotgun sawed off to 18.5. The sear pin was a little worn. It'd fire when the bolt closed. I traded it for a $50 gift certificate at a police "buy back".

M3 Grease gun. Actually it belonged to Uncle Sam, but I really couldn't believe what a pos it was.

a .22 revolver (generic) That thing will cut a piece of paper in half from shaved lead. It is more dangerous from the side, then the muzzle.

What a piece of crap.. Not only was it just a piece of poorly made crap, the damn thing would fire if you pulled the trigger hard, with the safety ON

Hated that stupid thing, cheap bastard, sheesh.......

and this shitty AR-15. Never had problems with guns until now.

unless you count the SKS with the "tac-trigger". I put the gun down and the thing fired off a whole clip. I hit the deck.

Mine was prolly just a fluke, got it used.

It was accurate, just would not function. Tried different mags, cleaning, everything. Gas port was open.

I've never owned a POS weapon. I try to research my purchases thouoghly enough so that wont happened. So far, so good.

I was worried about picking up a CETME after reading several horror stories.
When I ended up ordering, I asked FAC to hand-pick a non-ground bolt, and decided
to go with a Stainless Steel receiver.

Several hundred rounds through it - no problems, flawless function, fun as hell to shoot.
Very impressed with it. I couldn't be happier.

Otherwise, no problems with any other firearms I've owned. Websites like this, and a
little research tend to keep the POS purchases away.

Lorcin 9mm pistol!! About halfway into the 3rd mag the slide seperates in two large parts. One goes flying in the air. Could have been real bad.
Link Posted: 9/24/2004 9:29:43 PM EDT
Charter Arms AR-7 .22 cal. rifle.

I don't think it ever shot a full mag without a jam and the shot spread was about 5 inches at 25 yards.
Link Posted: 9/24/2004 9:33:12 PM EDT
1. Grendal .380. the trigger pin broke first time I shot it. Junk! Grendal fixed it, I sold it.

2. Had a Tec-9 that wouldn't feed. Did a partial trade for a Colt Sporter 9mm carbine back in the early 90's. I lost my ass on the trade but I guess I did good in the long run.


Link Posted: 9/24/2004 9:33:39 PM EDT
all good so far
Link Posted: 9/24/2004 9:44:26 PM EDT
Damn, can't believe there's 2 carbines in this thread. I've never had any trouble with mine except for a bad mag.

The Lorcins I can see.

I've got a .25 Taurus. When I did police work I used to carry it in my bag as a drop gun. I've got an break-open Iver Johnson .32 too, but it's old enough that I consider it a classic rather than a POS.

My Colt SP1 is probably not, but my biggest POS was a Davis P.380. Every other round was a jam......I gave it away to a friend for a computer, best trade ever!

"My wife wants a Raven, I keep bringing home Smith and Wesson revolvers instead."

if she wants a bad gun just crush some cans, duct tape them together, and strap a rubber band on the contraption. Tell her that is the equivalent of what she wants.

Dont forget to tell her that a different gun has more thrusts per squeeze anyways.

I've had good luck so far. My former step-father was a fan of the Lorcin series, which eventually saved both our lives. When I was twelve he got drunk and decided he was going to kill me with his Lorcin .380. He racked the slide, pointed it at my face and pulled the trigger. Evidently a magazine problem prevented it from feeding. When I was fourteen he got drunk and beat up my mother. I decided I was going to shoot him with his Lorcin 9mm(he had been threatening my mother with it, and lost it in the struggle). I picked it up off the floor and attempted to chamber a round. When I released the slide the round became lodged between the feed ramp and the slide. In my state I was unable to clear it. It did make a decent club however, which I used to pistol-whip him until the police arrived. He survived, but had some pretty serious nerve damage in his face and a broken jaw.

Lorcins save lives.

About 15 years ago I got a Wyoming Arms .45ACP...Jammed every other round. Sent it to their shop in Thermopolis, Wyoming for repair. Still jammed. Traded it to a pawn shop. Went back into the pawn shop a week or so later only to be kicked out for trading a POS

Also had a POS:
Walther P-22 (Finicky with ammo)
Rossi .38 that was off time and shaved lead

And probably others, but I can't remember

Galesi .25 ACP.

Actually quite reliable the few times I fired it – but just on principle I have no use for zinc frames (which I didn’t know it had when I bought it).
