I had a Winchester 190 once, the trigger was so bad I was actually pulling it against the bow to make it fire. I took it back and got a Marlin 60

hunt4fun1, I won't change hobbies I just don't buy S&W revolvers anymore. Never had trouble with their autos from .22's to 10mm's. Plus if you knew how many guns I've bought, sold and traded. You'd know this is a SMALL% of what I've owned. GUN NUTUS IN EXTREMIS <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Once bought a LLamma 9mm used. It was a workable gun but I later found out that it appraised out at about 60% value, I had paid near new price for it. It would jam now and again and I had one round ( hot reload ) vent into the grips, no damage and no injuries thankfully but scared the begeesus outa me!
Only other gun trouble I had was my Iver Johnson 8 shot .22 target pistol, but it was older than the hills when my mom gave it too me ( used to be my grandads ) it is so sloppy and loose now that it is the only revolver I ever saw jam. The cylinder rocks about and locks halfway around to firing ( needles to say it is a wallhanget now and dont get shot ) Gunsmith says it isnt worth fixing, but since it was grandads, I keep it.

Just my uneducated opinion!

Mine would have to be the REMINGTON VIPER .22 what a piece of junk. I think it was a 522 model but don't remeber but that was the last Remington i have purchased and that was 19, firearms ago! On the other side of that coin my best firearm would have to be a Hk/USP If it wasn't fur bad luck I thinks i would have nonez Steve j/k lol...

I bought a bolt action deer slug gun once. I think it was a Marlin. It was junk to the Nth degree. I couldn't wait to unload that thing.
