Jimenez arms?
 
Just found a gun dealer down here (south texas) who has a bunch of Jimenez arms assorted calibers and sizes for really cheap. I can tell by holding it its obviously not the best fire arm to say the least. Any one know how they preform?

I would recommend you do google search on it, might change your mind. I found that they are a money maker when you turn them in at a Police Gun Buyback. I get them for $30 to $50 and turn them in for a $100 grocery gift card. What a deal.

Years ago we had RGs and Clerkes. Now there is the Jennings-Bryco-Jiminez. They are cheaply priced for a good reason.

DONT DO IT! bryco/jennings/jiminez firearms are probably the most "or close to it" horrible firearms ever produced. It doesnt matter if they cost 25 each, walk away. Every firearm with the above mentioned names should be melted

I doubt anyone who made a post in this thread has ever owned or even fired a Jimenez firearm. I have a JA-22 I have shot thousands of times without any trouble other than a firing pin breaking. Jimenez has far better service than most gun manufacturers. My Ja-22 is as accurate as any gun on the market with a 1.75" barrel. Compared to a kel tec P-11 or P-3AT it is like shooting a target pistol. I own both the P-11 and P-3AT. I would bet the JA-22 will hold it's own with a ruger LCP. I am one of the biggest Ruger fanboys on earth.

Edit: I can not recommend buying Jimenez firearm larger than a 22. A hi point would be a much better choice for larger calibers.
