What has been your most trouble-free auto loader handgun that cost less than $600 new? It can be any brand including Glock but not limited to them. I'll go first with mine being a CZ 75 Compact. I lost count after three years of almost daily shooting with not one failure to function of any kind;ever. Compared to other compact handguns it's on the heavy side but if I could not have but one pistol that would be it.

More money does not mean more reliability.

If we're talking ccw, I'd go with a single stack 9mm, or 40sw. There are many in the $600 range that are plenty reliable.

I have a Kahr MK40, and it hasn't once malfunctioned. If I were going to purchase right now, I'd get the PM40, but the difference in weight isn't a deal breaker......I'll keep mine.

Sig P220.

I've owned and shot many, MANY firearms. It really doesn't get much better that that, IMHO.

Oh...or a Beretta 92. :)

I've had quite a few trouble free pistols but my Kahr PM9 has been my favorite so far.

I just picked up a Gen 4 G26 and its range session debut is scheduled for tomorrow.

The gun i have had the longest without a single failure of any kind is my old Kimber Custom II Stainless. WAG 15/20 years. I used high priced ammunition and Wolf steel.

Second is G27 12 years. No failures of any kind with any ammunition I fed it.

01-20-2013, 21:34
Other than .22's. I would say my Kimber. Being the only one that isn't reliable.

All my guns are trouble free. If I have a gun that doesnt work I fix it or get rid of it. I have many that have run 100%. If high round count means "most 100% reliable" then my Glock 17 is the leader by far.

Springfield XD-9 OD green 4". Best gun, cycles minor loads and full power, ejects cases into a neat little pile. Looks good from some angles, bad from others! Haven't had a single malfunction, except my first attempt at reloading ammo when I severely undercharged the rounds! And the trigger is hard to beat with any striker gun I've ever shot/held

All fired flawlessly, every time I pulled the trigger. (I can't say that about the now traded away Glock 22.)

Probably because they were all stock and as they came from the factory. I see no need for gimmick parts. They all shoot very well from the box.

My HKs (USP .45, USP.40c) were over $600.00.

Hi Point C-9, 9mm. Retail price was $139.00. I forget what I paid for it. Couple of thousand rounds with a few malfunctions, but I don't consider a malfunction to be "trouble." Trouble is when it continues to malfunction to the point you expect it to.

All of mine are reliable and none cost 600 bucks.

That rare 'lemon' aside, a $600 autoloader that is poorly designed and unreliable will not last in the marketplace. Period.

Most reliable under $300 was a HS2000 (9mm) now known as the overpriced SA XD.
I recall paying $239 for it NIB.

If we're talking about just the gun (not the optics etc involved with it) then I'd say my Rem 700 SPS Tac has been my most trouble free gun under $600. It has been super easy to find an accurate load for and shoots like a dream. I haven't done a single thing to true or accuratize the action, it's just a shooter. Love it.

Under $600 and the most trouble free? Currently owned that would be: S&W 18, 28, 66, 625; RIA 1911-A1. I will not waste everyone's time listing other handguns owned that have been trouble-free and under $600 in cost.

Without a doubt my most reliable autoloader has been my Gen4 Glock 27. Picked it up for $425 through the GSSF program. I have about 2,000 rounds through it with many types of ammo without one failure of any kind. I have used the standard 9rd mags with and without various extensions and 15rd mags. Not a single problem. A friend has had the same results with his Gen4 27.

Second place would go to my Sig P220 Elite Stainless which is significantly more than $600. Not a single problem with the standard 8rd mags but I have had problems with the 10rd mags.

My Rugers/Kimbers/S&W M&Ps are not bad, but I wouldn't trust my life with them over the Glock 27 or Sig P220.

2. Beretta 92FS - $300.00. ZERO malfunctions.
3. Glock G19 Gen3 - $275.00. ZERO malfunctions.


ETA: I gotta be honest, here. I've never paid over $600.00 for a handgun (without tax!), yet.
The most expensive handgun that I have bought, was a S&W mdl 5906, right after they came out. ($595.00 +tax.)

O.K. -

All of them.

I won't keep a handgun that gives me problems.
I have owned two (2) that I consider POS.

S&W mdl 39-2. It was known as a 'jam-o-matic'. Gone.
Being absolutely honest, it COULD HAVE BEEN the magazines.
????? I sold it.

S&W mdl 5906. Early 3rd gen Smith. Stainless steel. Apparently, the frame and slide were made from the same hardness, stainless.
It was galling itself to pieces. Metal filings and 'metal powder', from shooting it. No amount of lube/grease would stop the galling.
S&W couldn't explain it.

A neighbor offered to buy it for more than I paid for it. "Sold!"

Tied for second my OD G17 and G19.
For third I have to go with a used USP Compact .45 LEM. It was under $600 when I bought it. :supergrin:

I've owned many Glocks since about 1989 and fired many, many thousands of roudns through them - all have cost me under $500 and none has ever malfunctioned, even once. Actually, I have about 20 handguns - all cost under $600 - the only one that has ever malfunctioned was the 1911 I built from random parts, mostly used stuff from Ebay and that was just an extractor issue - it has been perfect since I did some work on the extractor.

But for most rounds with 0 malfunction, for way under $600, any of my Glcoks would top the list. mainly either my wife's 34 or her or my 17 for most rounds.

Most reliable for me is a tie between my Gen4 G26 and my XDm 4.5" 9mm. The XDm especially as it has had tens of thousands of rounds through it (G26 only has about 2k) and has never once malfunctioned. I would love to add my Gen4 G17 and make it a 3 way tie but the first few hundred rounds were troublesome (usual FTE/FTF issues the Gen4 has on occasion). Thousand of rounds later it is very reliable and does not malfunction. It still spits brass at me from time to time though. =(

Any of my Glocks, but there are lots of other good guns out there.

My Arcus 94 has never had a hiccup. Best $239 I've spent on a gun.

I had one of those and kind of miss it...

$100 Makarovs ... :supergrin:

.

Good one, I forgot about my Makarov. Probably the best value in handguns going at the time.

Take your pick. Glocks have been great. Rugers great, Makarov's great, Norinco .45 Great. Beretta 92 great, Smith & Wesson 5906 great. Smith Revolvers, Model 10 times three, great, Ruger Revolvers times seven great!!!! They are all so good and I don't think I ever paid over $500 for one.

That award does not go to my glock 17, but to my former Sig pro 2340. I owned that gun for 10 years shot thousands of rounds and it was 100%.

What has been your most trouble-free auto loader handgun that cost less than $600 new?

Glock 26, 3rd Gen, manufactured summer 2005.

Glock 19, 3rd Gen, manufactured spring 2009.

Glock 26 Gen 3. Over 4000 rounds without a single malfunction. Fits my hand like I grew it there.

My G19 was equally reliable, but it never fit my hand quite right (reason why it is my ex-G19).

My Ruger Mark II is also a dream. Hasn't got the round count that my Ruger Standard had (close to 30K) but it is creeping up on 10K. The Ruger Standard (no mark) is still going strong, I just sold it to a friend.

I have a Glock 19 I know I have put well over 20,000 rounds through since 2001. I stopped counting in like 2006 I think and still shoot it today. No issues what so ever. I would hate to guess but would be easy to say over 50,000 rounds. It's all stock with the addition of extended slide stop.

And most of the firearms I have purchased have no issues. Think I had a kimber that was crap but it was over $600 bucks.

How would you equate dozens of guns that have never malfunctioned?
It could be any number of revolvers, Sigmas, Glocks, M&P pistols, or even 1911's.

Not really.

OP asked about auto loading. 8th word, 1st sentence, 1st post.

Revolvers don't really fit the definition of an auto loader.

Automatically loads another round from the next cylinder after you squeeze the trigger lol

G19, G22, G23, G26 - zero issues. Also have a Kel Tec P11 that has been great. At $230 the P11 is my all time favorite cheap gun.

Trouble free would be any of the Glocks I have purchased. Best all around would be a used 226.

O.K. -

All of them.

I won't keep a handgun that gives me problems.
I have owned two (2) that I consider POS.

S&W mdl 5906. Early 3rd gen Smith. Stainless steel. Apparently, the frame and slide were made from the same hardness, stainless.
It was galling itself to pieces. Metal filings and 'metal powder', from shooting it. No amount of lube/grease would stop the galling.
S&W couldn't explain it.

A neighbor offered to buy it for more than I paid for it. "Sold!"
(I really wanted to like that pistol.)


I've had my 5906 since '92, zero malfunctions. I got that one when the Sheriff decided to let deputy's carry anything they wanted........as long as what they wanted was a 9mm, hi-capacity, stainless S&W. :whistling:

Sorry guy but I've got y'all in beat... a H&R Topper 88 20gal and a 1978 Glenfield Marling Model 60. I used both as a teen. I know that I put 2000 + rounds thru my H&R 88 before I traded it. It cost $59.99 new at K-mart. The GM 60 I have to had put 10,000 thru it with out a problem. It cost about $50 or $60 in 1978 at K-mart.

Beretta 70S

Not THE most reliable, but it has never malfunctioned during more tha 30 years of use, and the 70S needs some recognition beyond one line in "Skyfall".

Three out of my four handguns cost me less than $600 and they have all been flawless. The most reliable has been my M&P9 that has been flawless over 4000 rounds.
