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

    I saw a thread with this same topic on another gun board I frequent and wanted to get one started here. What is/are the worst POS firearm(s) (handgun or long gun) you have ever owned? Here are mine:

    Hi Point C-9: My problem with this gun was not so much with FTF or FTE, but with the magazines. The magazines on this gun were always sliding out. At first I thought it was because the mag release button was always pressing up against the holster, so I filed down, which I thought would fix the problem. When that did not work, I found that a simple tug on the bottom of the mag was enough to make it come out. It got so bad that every time I carried this gun, I had to check to see if the mag was in place. When I finally purchased my Glock 22, I still kept checking the mag on that one. Of course it did not happen on that one.

    Cobra: (Not sure of the model, but it was a .32 with an 8 rd mag and chrome slide); I could never get through a full mag without a FTE.

    Cobray MAC-10: The damned thing just would not fire. I could maybe fire 2 or three consecutive shots before the damned thing would just stop. Total POS.

    Mechanical Disaster!! Kahr PM40

    After three trips back to KAHR, the third time KAHR determined that they couldn't fix it and agreed to replace it. KAHR does honor their warranty. It broke magazine followers regularly, failed to go into battery often, failed to feed at every range session. As a carry gun I lost all confidence in it!! I requested that they replace it with a KAHR MK40 (All STEEL!!). I am tickled pink with the MK40. The MK40 runs like a clock if I keep it squeeky clean. And, I can hide it without wearing a jacket or loose outer clothing. The little KAHR just disappears under only my tucked in shirt, and it's a .40 S&W. I carry IWB at 8:30 using a Blade-Tech (Ultra Concealment) holster set for the FBI cant.(Yep, I am a confirmed dyed in the wool, LEFTY!)

    A model 1911 Llama 45 back around 1970. As a side note the best ones I ever owned are anything German manufactured. HK, Walther, Sig.

    I have had two complete lemons, so it would be a tie between them. One was a Hawes Montana Marshal chambered in .44 Mag (revolver) they went out of business years ago thank God. The cyclinder was constantly getting out of time, lodging a sliver of lead between the forcing cone and the cylinder jamming up the action.

    #2 was a Lhama .45 auto pistol, I called my jamamatic I always had a least 2 jams per magizine.
