Most inaccurate rifles ever.

Contrary to most accurate, what is the most INACCURATE rifles ever made? Not talking smoothbore either. Preferably from 1900 onward. I'll start with AK-47, Mini-14.

    the ruger m77 has been a pretty epic fail in my opinion and a few remingtons not far behind.

    Accuracy is usually relative to cost in my opinion.

    I agree with TikkaMike.

    Ruger m77 were really untrustworthy for a while. Quality vs cost were not acceptable.

    May have changed but twice burned is enough.

    here's a few to cuss:

    1. the British Sten Gun

    2. just about any AK 47 and the variants

    3. the Italian 6.5 Carcano (Oswald's masterpiece)

    4. the machine gun the French built in WWI

    5. The Remington pump and semi sutos they sold a few years back

    border line:

    1. Winchester 88

    2. Mini 14

    3. SKS

    4. MAS 36

    5. about any smooth bore slug gun

    Right now the worst one in the safe is a Model 100 Winchester in 284. My dad had a 308 in that model that shot very well. A lot of those listed I've had great experiences with, but totally understand the degree of luck involved. Like the 100's, sometimes you get a fascination for figuring out the quirks involved making one work.

    I have a New England Arms 22-250 that will print a nice tight 6 inch group at 100 yards. I would get rid of it but I think it is hilarious to just take it out every once and a while and shoot it.
