tellmaster: not trying to bust your balls, just trying to understand correctly.
On the FTF that you've had with the 88, could you attribute them to anything? ammo? rate of fire? dirty action? etc?
By your own admission, you state that you can "smash and trash" it, and it's "takin a lot of abuse". Could this have anything to do with your FTF events? Do you keep it clean and lubed? Just askin'...

Cheap guns are fun, but I really have never owned one I'm confident enough to bet my life on it.
