Default Jimenez Slide scarring

I just purchased a Jimenez JA Nine. After 50 rounds, I came home and took the slide off to clean the gun and noticed some scarring on the slide near the firing pin. I have not been able to talk to a person at Jimenez so I was wondering if anyone could help me. I do not know if this is normal of not. I have attached pictures i took of it. Thank you all in advance

Im no expert... But that would scare the crap out of me. I would'nt shoot that until I spoke to someone at Jimenez, heck I still wouldn't shoot it even then.

Look at the hood area of the barrel.
Or if you can post pics of the barrel where the casing goes in.

Dumb question, where is the hood area of the barrel?

Breach area of the barrel (where the ammo enters the chamber). Top side.
run a finger nail cross ways on the edge.
Feel burrs?
If so, that is causing the scratches. Emory cloth should fix it.

Cause could be manufacturing or sand.

A friend of mine bought one of those in .380. After picking up a G22 he went to a pawn shop to seal the .380 the guy gave him $100 for it. He said the only reason he was buying it was so nobody got hurt with it and that is the minimum they can give for a gun.

I also heard of a guy trying to shoot some turtles in a pond with one. He keep having problems so he took it to a gun smith and asked if there was anything he could do to fix it. The gun smith looked at it then said "take it back to the pond and throw it". The guy said he did and he thanks he hit one of the turtles.

Guys, understand that these are not the top of the line quality handguns we like.

But the OP had a reason to purchase it. Please don't belittle his decision.

That's probly not a gun one would want to shoot a whole lot. It would be ok for occasioanl shooting or to keep in your tackle box, but the metal on that gun, and for that matter on most lower priced guns tends to be very soft.

If you want a gun that you can shoot alot , you would be better off buying a used "name brand gun", you can pick up ugly ex police guns about half price, they may be ugly from holster wear, but they are not usually shot very much.

You might even try some commie block surplus handguns, you can shoot the hell outa them, they have odball caliburs, but they are usually excellent metal.
