Allow me a moment to make sure I understand the OP.

Someone we don't know... From another forum... Once bought a firearm that didn't live up to his expectations...

Got it!

So glad we stopped the TaurusArmed presses for this important bulletin.

Carry on.

I am a big fan of Ruger firearms, but I once had a P95 that sucked so bad I sold it immediately. Hitting a paper plate at 7 yards was always in doubt with that pistol, I tried about every kind of commercial ammo before giving up on it. Everybody turns out a lemon once in awhile.

I believe that the post was meant as proof that other, purportedly "better" manufacturers also have "issue"-prone guns.

We hear about them, this just adds an eye-catching augmentation.

I heard, a few weeks ago, that even the Holy Glock Gen 4 captive recoil spring was a total disaster when it first came out. Glock had to jump through their butts to fix the issue, which they did.

I think I'm missing the point of this thread. Are we supposed to bash other manufacturers?

I had a colt mark iv series 80 government model. The firing pin broke from dry firing, and it took a gunsmith to get it out. I've had my share of 1911's, and broke two firing pins. One in the colt. The other was in a Star PD. Not drawing any conclusions - just sayin'.

Thats a negative there Laker. And, I think the OP was just posting that every brand produces lemons every now and then. Every vendor has put out a design that didn't do well in the market due to design flaws - ie., not just that one pistol being the problem - and they hopefully recall and/or fix them with subsequent designs.

I am not bashing anything. I own lots of different brands. I am a member of the colt forum as well and they have lots of troubles with 1911's not excessive but more than some would lead on. Not to get any nickers in a bunch. I just thought it was relavent becuase taurus owners get hammered with relentless abuse. But that's ok.....it is our secret of how good they are.

I know a lot of people that had problems with colts but you just don't hear about it because of fan boys.

I'll tell you something else I've noticed - If you go to a kel tec site, they complain about kel tec bashing. Go to a ruger site, they'll complain about ruger bashing. Heck, if you go to a glock site, they complain about glock bashing. I'm not sure if the gun community is a bunch of bashers or a bunch of whiners. :D

That was MY point. Why bring up someone on another forum complaining about another brand. It makes no sense to me. We are the most civilized forum on the net. As soon as the subject was brought up members started to tell of negative experiences with other firearms. Rod, I've been here as long as you have. Are you asking me to leave?
