This thread is an opportunity for you to share your experiences relating to the reliability of your handguns. Round counts without failures, catastrophic failures, worn parts, good experiences and bad. I'll start:
1. Kimber Custom II .45- No failures, round count 200-300 ( current gun )
2. HK USP .45- No failures, round count 100-200
3. Ruger 45 ( old style ) no failures
4. Colt Combat Commander ( mid-eighties model ) , constant jam-o-matic
Every revolver I've ever had has been 100% reliable, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Dan Wesson.
Obviously, this sort of thing pertains mostly to defensive handguns, but I like all my stuff to work right. I'm very interested to hear from Glock and XD owners too, as well as any of the polymer guns, which are all vaunted for reliability, and rightfully so. My only plastic pistol was the HK, a tremendous gun, but just didn't fit my hand like a 1911. I love the 1911 platform, but I know other guns are great too. Oh, and let's try to keep this civil.
