For me it would be these former firearms of mine:

H&R Model 999 nine-shot break-open .22 revolver
Marlin 9mm Camp Carbine
Kel-Tec P32
FEG P-35 HP clone
Marlin 1894 .357mag lever-action
SPAS-12
Stoeger coachgun
Star Firestar .40
Colt 1991A1 [as from factory]

The Camp Carbine is the chief offender followed by the H&R

The sad part is that i bought most of these firearms based on impulse and their "cool factor" even after having tried their HORRIBLE triggers

This one 1911 at the old texas tactical range had a trigger that you had to release to make the gun fire.

And anything Kel-tec.

Romanian SAR-1

Some off brand .25acp , Can't remember the name . A real two hander .

An SAR-1 with trigger slap is pretty heinous.
Link Posted: 10/8/2007 3:43:00 PM EST
Anyone ever fired a 'Gat' air pistol? The barrel moves forward to compress the air and fire the pellet. It was my first ever gun (of any type) and the trigger was horrid, at least 25 lbs of gritty nastiness.

Bizarrely after 100s/1000s of rounds (hey it was the only gun I owned) I got impressively accurate with it, hip shooting coins at 5/6 yards. I guess muscle memory can compensate for just about anything eventually.

Firearm would have to be my P-64 Makarov, double action is VERY stiff, I must try the Wolff spring fix someday.

Yes. The semi automatic Thompsons have horrendous trigger pulls as well. If you want to build your forearm muscles, dryfire one of those things a hundred times.

I once tried the trigger of a cz100 at a gun show. It was probably the worst pistol trigger I have ever felt. I would never own one.

Smith & Wesson 659.


It felt like it was full of sand, all the time. The trigger broke like a lump of clay with sand in it.

It never jammed, but it didn't shoot any better than its trigger feel.

pretty damned awful trigger pull

I was in West Texas and one of the guys had some turkeys coming in. I was bow hunting and this place wasn't set up to bowhunt.

I borrowed a Remington 22-250 from one of the city slickers on that lease.

The trigger was so hard to pull, that I pulled up and looked to make sure the safety wasn't on.

After I got back to camp, that guy I swear was bragging about how sweet that gun shot.

I have a Savage .17 that I had the trigger reworked and it still sucks. Infact it sucks so bad that I have only shot it one day and put it in the safe and haven't pulled it out in 3 or 4 years.

I messed with one once. I thought it was broke. Then I thought the safety was on, or it was out of battery or something. Then I gritted my teeth a PULLLLLED. And finally, it broke.

I think Dr. Mengele designed the trigger on that thing.
Link Posted: 10/8/2007 4:00:11 PM EST
Sorry, but nothing compares to the trigger on a AMT backup. pull and pull and pull and pull, about 15 pounds too.
Link Posted: 10/8/2007 4:00:17 PM EST
Whatever that little bitty, DAO stainless-steel .45ACP that was on the market in the early 1990s was. I can't remember the maker or model, but I remember that it came out first in .380 ACP, then 9mm, then ,45 ACP. Pocket gun, bobbed hammer, gutter sights, and a trigger pull that went at least 20 pounds. I sold it the same day I bought it at a gunshow. I bought it, took it to my truck, dry-fired it, walked right back in and sold it for about $20 less than I paid for it.

AMT. See the post above yours.

The best factory trigger that i have ever felt is my HK P7
The best aftermarket trigger was on my Rem700P

The worst trigger i have ever felt before in my life would probably be a Raven .25 auto, every bit of 15 pounds.

For a double action pistol though, I much rather prefer Sigs in regards to trigger pull.

I had my USP set up in variant 7 [DAO] for about a year because i liked that variant action so much. The H&K trigger is kinda spongy because the face is made from "polymer" molded around a steel trigger causing the spongy/springyness.

I can shoot damn near one-hole groups from 25m using Winchester Ranger T in double-action mode

Don't be disuaded from getting a USP based on a few haters

Daisy spring and piston pellet rifle was the worst

A close second was my Beretta 96. I hated the long creep of the Beretta.

Polish P-64. The first ones I saw were so heavy half of the guys in the store could not pull it with one finger. The only things that have been close are the AMT Backup (DAO) and the early Taurus PT111 (which is much, much improved now).
