I have had a Smith & Wesson model 2206 with 6" barrel (stainless steel) for 20 or so years and have fired thousands of rounds with total realiability.......The only FTFs came from using Remington Golden Bullets........................I'm not sure if they make this pistol anymore.

One of my hunting buddies bought a SIG Mosquito. After a year, and about 3,000 rounds, he like it so well that he bought two more for Xmas presents for his sons.

All three of them are avid shooters, and they all think the SIG Mosquito is great.

Buybacks are gun grabber bullsh*t. I would sell it to someone for 50 bucks or even lay it on a slab of concrete and smash it to bits with a sledge hammer before I participated in any gun buyback.

Your solution sounds like the right thing to do, to me - Bill

Default Worst .22

I've had (2) pistols that fall into the category of worst .22's:

Ruger MkIII slabside competition. Jam-O-Matic special. I blame the loaded chamber indicator putting too much pressure on the side of the casing on extraction. Forum info I read indicate this was a common problem and removing the LCI often would remedy it. I sold or traded it instead, and have avoided the MkIII since.

Sig Mosquito. Another jamming machine.

Rifles:

Marlin Glenfield 60. Loved that rifle. Worked great as long as it was clean, but dirtied quickly. Once dirty it would start the stovepipe FTE. Micro-groove rifling in the Marlins made them tack drivers, too.

Marlin 39A lever action. Worked fine for the most part, but the magazine wouldn't stay in place. While shooting, it would release and slide out the front of the tube. It never fell out, but you knew not to hang it out over a precipice or water while shooting, or shoot at any angle less than level.

Sounds to me like the common denominator there is the operator, could be ammo too. Follow the instruction manual and clean your firearm regularly. The manual for marlin 60 says every 250 rounds. Like any machine propper care must be taken.

OOOHHH mine hasn't been fully cleaned in about two years. Guess I've been extremely lucky. Maybe I better clean it 50 times back to back to make up for it.

The Glenfield 60 was my first rifle as a teen. I took reasonably good care of it from the start, and better care as my experience grew. A lot of it was the ammo. Lawn mowing money didn't buy the best stuff out there, so my rifle processed a lot of 50¢ boxes of whatever they had at Otasco, Western Auto, or T,G,& Y. I just remember how dirty it would shoot. Every shot would add grit to the action, so a gun that started out clean would be quite dirty by round 100-150.
