Guns that you are glad that you got rid of...

What guns have you disposed of in the past that you are glad you got rid of and why? I'll start out with these two examples.

AMT Backup.
Jam-o-matic and was the most inaccurate pistol I have ever fired. Traded it in on a deer rifle.

Jennings J22.
Another Jam-o-matic. Frame cracked after several hundred rounds. Got pissed and destroyed it with a cutting torch.

Remington Sportsman 58. My grandfather bought it who-knows-where. It was given to my father. He didn't want it, so he gave it to me. I didn't want it because it was a cobbed shotgun. It had miscellaneous nuts and bolts in the receiver and the stock was cracked quite a bit. I never fired it. It was an old mess. I traded it toward a GP100.

My old single shot topper 20 gauge. Don't get me wrong. It was a very solid shotgun. I just don't shoot shotguns anymore. After seeing all the dust on it. It was just time to break up.

I may replace it sometime. Maybe with a tactical short barrel 12 gauge with a pistol grip. Starting to think that's the ultimate home defense gun.

P94 in 40cal. I never liked that gun, traded it for my LC9 gladly.

Walther P22! I bought it before the SR22 came out. Very disappointed since I have had several Walthers since my time spent in Germany. Should have gone with the Mark III instead.

Smith and Wesson Sigma 380acp, I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside with it, and it jammed every magazine. I glady got rid of that one. It actually got traded even for a Winchester 7mm rem mag sm with a boss, the guy didn't like the boss, so he wanted the pistol, I still have that rifle as well, one great rifle.

Second was a universal m1 carbine, another jamomatic rifle, I really liked the accuracy, but no matter what rounds, or magazines I used it would jam. Got traded on a used rra standard a4, still have that rifle, great improvement.

First generation LCR , it had no issues worked great however I couldn't get used to its heavy long trigger pull, I liked the gun, but couldn't get past that trigger, so it got traded partially for a desert eagle 50ae, love that gun.

What was your issue with it, never had any problems with springfield armory products, other than them being pricey...in particular the $50+ m1a magazines

HK P30. I loved the design and the ergos...HATED the trigger so much I couldn't get over it and sold it. No regrets.

Excam .22. Just didn't work. CZ 52 that would fire when de-cocked. Only CZ I ever had a problem with. Universal Carbine see above post. M-3 .45 "Grease Gun". What a cheapy loser! High Standard .22 Magnum Sentinel, Wouldn't fire double-action and had the accuracy of a Daisy BB gun at fifty yards. Actually, I could go on.

Sure to raise some ire:

Happily traded off a Ruger SP101 .357 Mag snubbie bought for conceal/carry. Unable to hit a barn door at 10-yards... dreadful trigger... painful to shoot... too heavy for purpose of purchase. Replaced it with a S&W 637 Airweight for carry use which I'm quite pleased with. Traded the SP101 for a Colt King Cobra which is now my favorite wheel gun (Ruger GP100 second-favorite).
