Default Reliability

When I am talking about reliability, I am talking about WITHOUT cleaning it, which gun is the most likely to continue to go bang every time. Just put them in order from 1-8, these are the firearms in question.

1) Glock
2) Springfield XD
3) Smith and Wesson M&P
4) Sig Saur
5) Berretta PX4
6) Browning Hi-Power
7) Taurus Millennium
8) Smith and Wesson Sigma

Just number them from 1 being most reliable to 8 being least reliable. This is all your opinions! Thanks guys.

Everything I've read, which is a lot, says the Glock. Guess you don't like cleaning guns, huh?

No, I clean my guns after every shooting. I am just saying in the worst conditions, if you could not clean them, which would end up being the most reliable the longest.

That would be the one with the lousy tolerances.

Like an AK.

Don't know though, never been there.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

From what I've read, XDs are just as reliable without cleanings as Glocks are.

all it takes to keep a handgun running even in the worst conditions is a quick wipe with a length of cloth. most handguns and all the ones you listed are very easy to disassemble and reassemble in a few seconds. my best time of field stripping and reassembling blindfolded in the army was around 35 seconds for a 1911.

i cannot personally concieve of a realistic situation where i would have so many pistol mags that i would make a modern pistol stop functioning from being dirty.

ive got 10 mags for sig220 and it can cycle them all without a hitch non stop. my sig i bought for conceal carry and as a truck gun i could just leave in between the seats of my truck. all sorts of junk falls in between truck seats on texas ranch. it often went motnhs without being cleaned.

i carried my 1911 in a holster while doing outside work on the ranch and it also often went for extremely long stretches between cleaning. both are excellent weapons.

glock's sig's 1911's springfield's berretta's etc all the modern weapons work well in adverse conditions.

the 1911 has nearly 100 years of service and numerous wars that tell me it would function well over time in bad conditions. cant go wrong with a springfield 1911-A1. if i had to choose one handgun to serve in time of duress through alien invasion and zombie scourge it would be a 1911-A1 pattern gun. i would leave my desert eagle and my sigs in my safe and take my springfield 1911-A1 to zombie war.

I clean my firearms after use so I can't play the dirty gun game. How about a new game what plate do you want to eat off with out cleaning before using it again? Or what TP would you use for a second wipe?
