    What's the worst POS firearm you have ever owned? (revisted)

    Iver Johnson Sidewindere in 22lr -22mag Purchased 1977
    First time I used it, about round #30 of .22 mag the barrel split half way down. I returned it to the dealer, who ordered another from Iver. This one lasted about a month before the case extractor fell off. The dealer told me he wasn't doing business with Iver anymore, and I was SOL. I still have this POS. I slept through the gun by backs the city offered a few years back. Hopefully, there will be another. Great way to get good cash for bad firearms.

  3. Davis 32 ACP Derringer. Fired when it wanted to. I traded it in to a guy who said it had almost no trade-in value; he gave me $5 for it. I smiled & shook his hand. Knocked $5 off the price of a Beretta 21A.

    Some Erma Copy of a Luger in .22LR. It Mis-Fired, Stove Piped, Extractor Broke, Grips Cracked, Shot 7 -8 inches to the Right @ 20 Feet.... You could Only Load 5 rounds in Magazine as the top round would POP out the top if you Loaded more.
    We Finally Carried it In the Truck Just to Use as a "Throw-Away"..... (Back in the Day).

    I'm going to have to say its my Pheonix .22 that I bought around the late 90's sometime. Field stripped it once and never got it back together right, and I've never had a problem getting anything else apart/together I've ever owned.

    Grendel .380s - two of 'em. Got $50 each at a gun "buy back" program. Couldn't have given them away otherwise. Thanks government!

  10. Had an AMT back-up in .380. Traded a nickel Colt King Cobra .357 for it at a gun show fifteen years ago. Ahhh, the stupidity of youth. Fired full auto 3 round burst, followed by two round burst, followed by a single every single time. Sent the gun back to AMT. When it came back to my local dealer, I traded it in on the spot towards a Delta Elite 10mm. Took a beating on that one, but I was getting smarter!!!!

    Jennings 9mm. rough workmanship, mags don't seat all the way in, FTF, FTE, recoil spring fatigued so slide won't return fully and load next round. Extractor claw pin works it's way out, orange "cocked" indicator moves out too far and almost falls out. Will not fire a full mag because mags don't seat fully into grip, so next round does not get picked up.
    Can't think of anything else at the moment, but I'm sure if I kept trying to fire it more things would go wrong. and I've only put about 50 rounds thru it. Better luck trying to throw it at some one.
