My glock 21 ftf every once in a while. Big heavy gun.
I have a buddy with a glock. Its a decent gun, but once in a blue moon it will fail to feed/eject properly.
He got glock thumb a couple times, but that was user error
I sent it back to gkock, but it still once in a while it still ftf.
Intratec cat 9 gets a lot of bad reviews. I've put a couple of hundred rounds through mine with no problems except for accuracy. My Thunder 5 is not much fun to shoot, but I still do.
I've got a 1917 Savaged factory box in 32 ACP two magazines and factory box. Never shoot it. Probably help if I had cases for it but can't think of one use for it.
MAC-10 open bolt .45 pistol. Had a chance to work with one back in the day. Rear sight elevation was adjusted with a ball peen hammer.
Another vote for RG. One in particular: the stubby .22 short model. Darn thing spat as much lead sideways as it did towards the target. You'd be lucky to hit your big toe with it. For unloading the fired cases, there was a cheap little pin that screwed into the cylinder base pin. You had to remove the pin, punch out the cases, then remember to screw the pin back in or you'd be sure to loose it. Like most RGs, it had that cheapo sleeved barrel.
Not ALL RGs were junk. Mom had a .22 LR swing-out 3" or 4" barreled RG - and she liked and shot it a lot. I shot it, and it was a pretty decent little .22. I think she paid $50 new for it. About the same time my brother bought the $10 .22 short. He fast-talked her into a trade as soon as he figured out his pistol was junk. Mom hated the .22 short gun and was mad at my brother for years about it (but she never said a word to him about it). She never got it back and eventually it went in trade to somebody.
Funny, the Model 61 Escort had a reputation for unreliability and for being very finicky about ammo. But they are very collectable so don't pass up cheap ones
The all time WORST handguns ever brought out in MY list is topped by RG, and includes Jennings, Bryco, Raven, and the such, and the most expensive crap guns I've ever seen was Wyoming Arms Parker, and of course Laseraim that crawled out of the ashes of Wyoming Arms.
I bought a Laseraim .45 a long time ago, and it fell apart at the range after the first shot, the safety fell off! I took it back and demanded a trade in!
Any of the pistols under the Bryco arms umbrella.
Had one guy bring me one he had to smack the back of the slide between every shot to fire. Ended up theres a trigger linkage and if the grip screw is too tight it binds it up and if its too loose it lets the bar slip past it.
Of course they are cheaply made but any gun that the firing (or lack thereof ) is determined by the cheap grip screw is a pile! Potmetal slide and all. Lol
Depends on the grading criteria
So many of the “worst” category are firearms that one person has had difficulty with but others may not, the firearm could be expensive or cheap and still give a lousy report by that individual. I would break worst down further and say “ worst construction” or “worst reliability”,”worst accuracy” etc. Some firearms would fill one or more of those categories such as the RG which would meet the criteria in about all.
Because I have had bad luck with a Glock 43 does not make it fall into the “worst”category for anyone but me, other brands or models have righteously earned their bad carma by screwing multitudes.
