It's not reasonable or useful to completely exclude other people's good experience in favour of your own bad experience.
Thats part of the problem isn't it? Poor tolerance in manufacturing means some will work and others won't. You are up to the mercy of the statistic. Statistical control is where a lot of the manufacturing money is spent and why a TM/WA/KSC guns costs more than others....even if they are plastic...
