Default jimenez 9mm completly comes apart at range today

Worst failure ive seen. Frame was in pieces. Guys hand was tore up ..slide was split in two. It was nasty...gun was just out of the box for the first time. It sounded like a grenade going off.

Well they are known for just about everything that is bad.

That said if I ever come face to face with a bad guy with a gun, I hope the BG is carrying a Jimenez.

I can't believe that those clowns are still allowed to manufacture firearms. Maybe I'll start making my own firearms out of red clay and Popsicle sticks...
Terrible. And it's really too bad. A company who can produce inexpensive firearms in order to arm Americans of any budget is good. But this... Maybe Jimenez is an Obama Incorporated subsidiary...

Cheap, crappy guns do crappy things---yeah, they are inexpensive---for a reason! Quality costs money---real steel, not "mystery" metal, zinc castings etc. A firearm should last several lifetimes!
