You have to basically take off part of the top of the engine to get to them.
I'm pretty sure they're doing that on purpose...

Well shootfire man! Stop by the intro thread and introduce yourself. Tell us whom we are helping out and all y'know?

Welcome to FTF there are some Jennings fans around here who might be able to help you out.

Precise Imports Company of Decatur, GA was the importer of inexpensive handguns made in West Germany and Italy. Seems to have been from early 1960's, many of the imports were blocked by the 1968 Gun Control Act. Most likely suspect is Gerstenberger & Eberwein (after 1939) of Gussenstadt, Germany. Please have a pistolsmith take a close look before shooting.

The Jennings makes a great conversation piece, IMO, of what not to buy or shoot. The slide on the Jennings that I have seen are made of Zmak and has proven to have a high failure rate.


ZAMAK 27% Aluminum and Zinc
high strength
hardness
creep properties

We had some during katrina relief. Beef stroganoff, Chicken faitas were pretty good. I brought some home and ate them 2 years later while otr driving.

Guys who had to eat them regularly will tell you that the name, mre is three lies.

Not a meal
Not ready
Not worth eating
