Alright gents, we know what obscure pieces everyone likes. But what about the industry standards that you can’t stand? I’m interested to see where the current community’s ire is pointed.
To start, I dislike the M9. Locking block mechanism is awful, it’s needlessly big and bulky for what it does, the safety is obnoxious, and I’ve seen at least 6+ fail in the same amount of range trips. Simply put, the M9 is a gun that people like when they don’t carry it.
But that’s just me, what about you? Keep it civil, no one is here to twist anyone else’s shorts.
I’m going to go with The controlled claw extractor or Mauser claw extractor.
I still shoot and love the rifles, but it would be nice when in a pinch to just be able to toss a single round in the chamber and close the bolt.
The CZ, ruger, Winchester 70, and others share this design.
You and I can be friends! Agree with almost everything you said there…well, the .45 is still an ok handgun round, preferable to the .40 (imho), and I think some 1911’s are alright looking (Commander sized, without accessory rail). But yeah…overpriced, unreliable boat anchors!
I guess for me its the 1911 in any caliber. It just feels like a huge chunk of metal that needs to be reshaped. I cant explain it but I just cant get comfortable with them and I have had the chance to shoot a really nice as far as the owner was concerned Kimber. I just cant shoot the dang things straight
