For me its a tie between a Baby Browning 25acp that jammed every 3 shots, or my Erma Luger that jams every other shot.

Easy question...


Sig Mosquito. WORST PISTOL, EVER.


Regardless of what Janq will say ( :p ) , it was the worst pistol I have ever had the displeasure of firing (when it fired).

Let me add that Sig did take full responsibility of its faults and took it back without any questions... With the money, I bought a Glock 27 instead.

Mine would be the pistol in the case awaiting transport to be sold. Piece of shit Firestorm 45, made by the late but unlamented Llama.

Was it a first run? The original run of the Mosquito was terrible, so I have heard. The second run has alot of fixes built in. Though it is very ammo sensitive, it is a fine pistol with the right ammo. My friend has one, and as long as you load it with Match ammo or CCI mini-mags it works great.

Yeah but a good 22 pistol should eay any type of ammo from Match and Mini Mags to the bulk shot at Wal mart. My Olympia TT does ti everytime. I have had 1 failure to extract in over 3k rounds.

Llama made one good pistol the 82. It was a licensed ALL STEEL Beretta 92 with a closed top slide and frame mounted safety(like the original 92). If I had 700 bucks I would love one. The spanish army was using them....not sure if they still do or not.

Def one of the early models... The gun store from where I got it from said it was the first one they ever sold and were waiting for my review of it... They were sad when I came back a couple months later with a long list of things that were just terrible. They no longer even carry the pistol because I wasn't the only one with that complaint... They were all long time sig fans so all of them were surprised. I wouldn't touch the second generation mosquito with a ten foot pole... I don't care how improved it is.

I had a Para-Ordinance when they first came out. If you'll remember they were first sold as a lower frame conversion kit that you had to use with a regular 1911 slide and barrel assembly. They soon realized they could have better quality control if they made the whole gun for you. Mine was assembled by someone else obviously. You could wiggle the slide left and right while it was on the frame and you could tell by looking at the back that the fit between the frame and slide was poor. It would fail to feed the next round about 30% of the time. Too much oil in and around the hammer area would soften the hammers impact enough to cause the round to not fire. Even with a weak hammer spring I had it accidently go off in my lap when I was trying to lower the hammer with my thumb. It pissed me off that the gun didn't always fire when I wanted it to then fired when I didnt. I know I was not being very smart with it. I traded it in on a new Sig 226 (decocker baby) back before everyone decided the 228 was a more managable size.
