    Funny, mine was a Glock 22 and most of my time beforehand was spent with 1911s and Colt revolvers.

    I had an H&K USP .45 for about a year before selling it. It was a leo trade in and was made extremely well, never had a malfunction. But the grip was akward for me and the trigger left a lot to be desired. I somewhat regret letting it go but not so bad. My biggest regrets are the ones I didn't buy.

    I took care of my last regret, I traded an XDm .40 for a S&W M&P .40 Shield, I'm happy, just have to shoot it more often.

    I have this exact problem with Glocks and some other guns. Trigger guard just isn’t big enough. It’s something I look at specifically when considering a new purchase now.

    None, I'm not dissapointed with any of my guns. Not everyone can afford to even own 1 firearm reguardless of how good or crappy it is or what caliber it might be. To own more than 1 firearm is something to be grateful for when their are others who cannot afford even 1 which in return leaves them defenseless.

    Diamond Back 308 (AR-10)! :( A friend got one at a recent FNRA event and we put a 1 x 4 Luepold on it and the scope was great, but we tried 4 different loads and the best we could get was 3+ inch 3 shot groups (100 yds)!!!:oops: Disappointment!:(

    Add to the list CZ Reaper Magnum...full blown rants available in the shotgun section of this forum...customer service gets an "F" on this one as well....so bad, I'm taking extra time to spread the word as far and wide as i'm able....buyer beware. The shotguns are not the pistols...love my CZ pistols. The shotgun I bought and customer service (or lack there of) is truly salt on the wounds.

    Mine was a Tristar Viper youth model 20 gauge semi auto I got for my wife. I bought it used at Bass Pro. Took it out. It was a single shot. Wouldn't cycle. Took it back and they discovered the gas piston was missing. Replaced that. Then, it must have had a rough chamber since all it would cycle was Remington Premier STS hulls. Luckily I reload and could keep the gun fed with those hulls without the high cost of that ammo. Then the charging handle flew off. They sent me another one. Then the firing pin broke. They sent me another one. Then the actual bolt broke in half. 2 pieces. I gave up at that point. Didn't even try to fix it after that.

    worst gun l ever owned. Couldn't even sell to a friend. Traded it at local Ltd at a 50% lose.
    i didn't card as l was ready to throw it in the St John's river. Went back to the factory and still had every failure as before.

    Every Taurus Firearm has been a disappointment for me. Both 9mm and .380. I sent them all to the Taurus Graveyard!

    Calico carbine.
    A real POS that I was happy to see go down the road.
    Never was able to make it feed right.
    The sights and trigger were horrible.
    And over all it had the feel of something made by Mattel.
    (Mattel made some fine toys, just nothing I would want to bet my life on.)

    About 40 years ago I swapped a camera flash to a friend for a Raven 25acp. It was cast zinc and complete garbage. I didn’t expect much out of it but I’m not sure I could hit a truck with it at 10 feet. I’d probably been better off throwing it.

    in all honesty, there have been very few guns I have been disappointed with. first of all I tend to lots of research before buying in the first place. if possible, I have tried to experience for myself what I was interested in buying to get first-hand experience with it to make a final determination before buying.

    The Ruger SR556 Takedown. If you stay with the factory iron sights, which adjust for both windage, and elevation at the front sight, it’s ok. You can mount a red dot, and get it adjusted so you’re consistently near the middle of a red dot. But dismount, and remount the barrel and your still in the 6-minute dot, but not near the center.

    It might be a good gun to terrorize folks during a bank robbery. But, that isn’t anything I’m into, and isn’t why I own guns.

    Kel-Tec Sub 2000 Gen 2. That thing was a piece of crap. Stuff started coming loose on it less than 100 roubds in.
