    A model 700 that had firing pin issues. Sometimes it would fire sometimes it would not. Cleaned it, took it to gunsmiths, and everything else imagined. Tried several different types of ammo as well. Couldn't really find anything wrong with it. It chose when it wanted to shoot (talk about a safety hazzard). I'm sure remington probably would have fixed it but I didn't hold on to it that long. Went back to my trusty model 70's.

      Ruger 9mm handgun---don't remember the model---nobody who shot it could hit anything with it.

          redfishhunter,
          I have 4 or 5 buddies that have had the same results with the T/C Encores and have gotten rid of them. The only ones that they have had any luck with are the .204 barrels. The T/C Contenders were pretty good I don't know what happened to the Encore.

            Winchester model 70 300 WSM (circa 2005?) Thing was minute of paper plate. Not sure how many different problems the thing had. Shortly after I got it and discovered its abysmal accuracy, I decided a bedding job was in order. Well as soon as I removed it from the stock I found the first unsettling thing. The rear of the stock where the receiver beds into, was too 'shallow' ? any rate some slob or genius? simply shimmed the receiver with a piece from a synthetic stock. This in effect kept the receiver in what appeared to be a normal state. I then completed the bedding job thinking I had found and cured the issue. And it sorta did, but the rifle only managed to shoot sub 3 moa. Not only did I try every type of ammo possibly purchased in town, I also bought a set of dies and rolled my own. Nothing could help that lost soul. So it got traded off. Haven't bought a Winchester since, but I hear that quality is better with these newer models? I sure hope so.

              Worst rifle was a Model 100 Winchester in .243 Win. Tried every thing I knew, read, and heard about to get that thing to shoot, could not get it to shoot the same two days in a row. Soured me on the .243 to this day.
              The worst pistol was a Rock River Arms Commander that blew out the barrel bushing and spring on the third shot fired through it.
              Traded the .243 for a 94 in 30-30, (still have that one), returned the Commander to the shop where I bought it and raised enough stink to get my money back. Bought a Kimber, happy with that pistol ever since.

                Similar experience as Del with a bolt action, single-shot Chipmunk .22 purchased as a first rifle for my children. The ineffective extractor was unable to get a grip on the rim of a fired .22 LR cartridge. I'd hoped it was a "keeper" but it was a disappointment, and they promptly progressed to a Ruger 10/22.

                  Keltec PF9. I bought it for a "pocket pistol" for concealed carry. At the range, I would stand 10 ft from the target and the point of impact would be 10-12 inches below my aimpoint. I ran several dozen rounds through it, sent it back to the factory explaining the problem. It was returned with a sheet stating it worked fine. I tried it again, same result. My other pistols, no problems. It also had bad, stinging recoil due to the lightweight. I sold it.
