BAD GUNS?

Have you ever owned a gun that just seemed to have problems with it? What gun and what were the issues?

Re: BAD GUNS?

Mine would be my Savage model 24f .223 over 12 gauge. I have the scope sighted in for the rifle at 100 yards but the shotgun shoots way low and two the left. I wish I could adjust the barrels to bring them into alignment.

Re: BAD GUNS?

Remington 870. I had a 12ga, 3" years ago. The thing would inconsistently jam(stove pipe) when cycled. Sent it back to Remington....they replaced some things(ejector & ectractor I think) and sent it back. Still happened. Dealt with it for a couple years and then traded it in on a BPS.

I must have gotten a lemon because everyone I know that has an 870 hasn't had a lick of problems with theirs. Regardless, it put a sour taste in my mouth and I will likely not ever buy another 870 because of it.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: BAD GUNS?

mossberg 835 ultimag. shoots way left and very high. Missed two big gobblers in the same day once and haven't used it since. Thought it was just me, but 3 others who shot it had the same issue. soured me on mossberg, have bought browning or remington since when dealing with shotguns.

Re: BAD GUNS?

Got a 20 gauge AYA Spanish Dbl from Sears for Christmas way back when I graduated high school. After my 4 years in the service were up the thing decided to fire both barrels upon closing the action. Took it to the local gunsmith for repair, but just didn't trust it anymore and got rid of it.

Re: BAD GUNS?

Sig Trailside 22 LR semi for me. Sent it back to them 3 times, got new pistols back each time and each time they had similar issues. Soft metal on the slide (peening at the slide stop), FTF, bad magazines, cracked trigger guards, etc. Sig knew they had problems with the pistols and yet kept on selling them. No more Sigs for me ever! Worst hosing I ever took on a firearm.

Ruger M77 300 Mag, couldnt get that thing to shoot under 3" at 100 yards. Left a bad taste in my mouth and havent bought a Ruger rifle since.

Re: BAD GUNS?

I once bought a new Ruger M77 in 270 Win., and I couldn't get the thing to do 4", even after trying to work out a bunch of different loads for it..Sold it to a buddy who thought that maybe he could get the thing to shoot...He ended up selling it too....Bought a Ruger Stainless in 300 Win., and it grouped 3/4" with just about anything I cared to put through it.....Airline lost it on a trip to Montana....So I guess it's a toss of the dice with Ruger 77's.
