My Colt 1911 has been flawless out of the box from a day 1. However I'd never abuse it like my glocks. Just cost too much lol.
Glock 20sf, Glock 19 gen4, Glock 26 gen3, Colt 1911 Series 80
i find it funny that everyone ranks hk high on their list, cuz i never see anyone posting about range time, having just bought one, etc. maybe it's just me.
i only have 3 handguns so my list:
As others have said, it depends on what you mean by "top" -- best quality? Most successful financially? Most popular? Best value? etc ...
If you're talking "Most innovative", I'd have to add Kel-Tec to the list.
HK and sig are top notch guns, but they are pricy and bulky for ccw, I don't own one of either brand, but I give them the respect they deserve. There is a reason some police and military forces around the world still choose HK, Sig and Walther over glock despite how much cheaper glocks are contracted for these days. Some departments care about budget, some stil want the best guns
Beat me to it.
You don't see a lot on here because of cost. They are expensive guns, but you get what you pay for.
I myself am a Sig guy, wont catch me without one and I have no problems carrying my P226

The Colt 1911, Browning Hi Power, and CZ 75 are the three most successful designs. Glock and SIG are popular and quality newcomers.
