    Buyers Remorse

    So.
    Which ones have you bought and very quickly regretted.
    For me its the first model Beretta xtrema, no kick off 3,5 inch.
    It was just too big a gun for me, I couldn't hit shit with it, didn't last one week of it's first season.

    There may others but that was the most expensive mistake.

    Mossberg 802 "Plinkster" in .22LR, the name should have been enough to put me off but I had to learn things the hard way. Most unreliable feeding I've ever experienced from a bolt-action rifle, no matter the ammunition.

    Norino 223, would jam with a live round in the chamber and need to point the barrel up and use a hammer to open bolt

    Magnum Research 17HMR semi-auto....shit blowing up in your face is never cool, jamming at shitty moments, poor feeding, poor reliability overall - semi-auto 17HMR: NEVER AGAIN!!

    Common enough, and there is an easy fix using valve grinding paste

    A 16x16x11.2 Drilling I bought at auction once years ago. Didn't get the chance to view properly before the bidding started and it turned out to be a pitted piece of wall jewellery. Sold it on way home from auction to the guy I out bid. Should have just flushed some money down the dunny, would have been easier
