Is HFC really bad?

So On Canada airsoft I've heard bad things from HFC. And I can see why. I bought a HFC 189 Gbb (glock 17) and it broke the second day I had it, very disappointing. but on every other airsoft forums I've heard some really good things about it. I've heard storys about them lasting up to 3 years withour problems! so can you share your HFC experiences/ opinions?

My hammer in my 189 broke in case any of you are wondering.

Yes, they're fairly low quality.

I have 2 HFC full metal pistols for 4 years. No problem so far. Paint work is far better and durable than WE's pistols. Very happy with them.

Their parts factories keep burning down
2 of my old teammates and I had HFC berettas, we all had 5 in total. Best pistol I ever owned.
one of them had a hair trigger and would sometime shoot being unholstered, but they all shot AMAZING.
Fixed hop which sucked, but amazing accuracy, shot in 5 degree weather, got 40-50 rounds to fill of gas in summer, VERY reliable, but had to be modified to fit in a serpa.
Mine just wore out after 3 years, started to only like 20 degree and above weather

However I heard there IS a high lemon rate, the standard used to be to buy two. One for gaming and one for parts.

The lemon thing is true. Mine only lasted me 2 days before something in the hammer broke that I couldnt fix.

Yes they're shit, buy TM, or KWA My almost stock TM 4.3 Shoots in almost any condition... from near freezing to being run hard and put away wet. They only thing that has gone on in in two years that I have had it, I bought is used, is that sliver plate that manages the hammer cocks and it was only bent. I bent it back and works like a charm.
