Mine was a Lorcin 380 Auto. It would shoot 2 then jam shoot 2 then jam. I fired 100 rounds threw it and then sold it. I felt bad because i paid $99 for it and sold it for $150 to some guy that though it was the coolist thing out there. Never did regret that sell.

Default Worst gun I've ever owned?

Hello all


Ron L here = SERESURPLUS



Worst gun, well I've had a few, the top dog in thr worst category was an IVER JOHNSON 44 MAGNUM CATTLEMAN, it was made poorly, not well kept, was spitting lead and was finally stolen, I really hope the thief took it for a test shoot? I only paid 75$ in trade for it, but was awefull! Second as I remember was a HI Point 9MM, don't recall the Model #, it stovepiped, it ejected poorly, all sorts of ammo, all different mags, I was tempted to sell it, but finally just crushed it in a hydraulic press in work and tossed it in the trash! Seen a few bad RG revolvers, had a really sucky Titan 25AUTO, made a few bucks on it to a guy that wantd it for a shadow box, thank god he never shot it? LOL Had a lot of really great cheaper guns, had a lot of Jenings J-22's as well as a few 25 auto raven and thought they were not well made , always went bang and you hit what you were trying for! Thats the sad thing, cheap doesn't walways mean bad, High $ don't always mean good? Seem a Glock 40 Compact shoot rings around the full size counterpart and thier was a 25$ difference in cost? Who knows anymore? Ya pays ya's money, ya takes ya's chances!

Accu-Tek .380. Magazine fell out every other shot. Have a friend that had one and it did the same thing.

Heritage Manufacturing, Rough Rider. Single action .22lr / .22 magnum six shooter. Not to be confused with Heritage Arms. I bought it at a gun show, and got a "great deal" on it.

It had lousy sights and bullets would tumble from both cylinders (lr & mag). Group? Fuggitaboutit! It was a pot metal pappa oscar sierra. The paint (yes paint) on the frame rubbed off when I tried to clean it. I used it as trading stock at my local gun store when I bought a real pistol. To my surprise they paid me almost full value. I guess it pays to go in on a Sunday when the owner is at home.

They still show them on their web site, but I can not recommend them to anyone, except maybe my ex-wife.

I've owned some real crap over the years, but this thing was hands-down the worst. My next keystrokes will be to delete the picture from my computer.

Charter Arms AR-7 about 20 years ago. Traded it for a Nylon 66 but had to kick in a few bucks.

I purchased a new Springfield Armory M1A Scout last year and had nothing but feeding and ejection issues with it. Probably the worst weapon I've owned to date.

I have to agree with Pioneer461, I just traded my Heritage Rough rider because it was junk. I mean it shot when the trigger was pulled, but I don't think I could hit a 5 gallon bucket at 15 yards. Even worse when I put the 22 mag. cylinder in. The Nickel plating was flaking off too. Oh well, I traded it even up for a surplus Mosin Nagant, I forget the model, but it is the long barreled one. I already have an M44, so I figured why not. And it shoots great.

The other "worst gun" that comes to mind is the POS Norinco 9mm Tokarev I bought back in the mid 1990's. It jammed constantly, and sometimes it would jam so bad between the slide and locking lugs on the barrel, that it required a hammer to unjam! After some filing on the lugs, I got that fixed, but it was still poor quality and poor accuracy.

I had the same problem with mine, had it for about 1 month before it went away.

Remington Viper .22. What a piece of work Sights were nylon and kept slipping, was not accurate, magazine located where it gouged your support arm. Thankfully it was stolen.
