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.
Even a hi point would be ok. After all it dose have a life time warranty and it's about the same price as the gun the OP has.

For all we know this OP is new to guns and shooting. Just answer his question honestly without belittling his purchase. Quality, good or bad will show itself and new shooter will figure it out so stop looking down at his choice.

OP, the previous post advice to check the barrel hood is correct. Your guns manufacturer is not really known for precision machining so even if it's new, burrs would not surprise me. Let us know what you find and if Jiminez responds to your inquiries. Good Luck and shoot safely.

Tack

I'm just saying. It would most likely be best to seal it and throw in an extra $50 to get one a little better with a warranty. Bc to be honest that or something elts will probably happen agin. If I was new to guns I would won't someone to tell me what is going on.


But I know what you mean

Polishing the barrel hood, as suggested, may stop it from getting worse. I don't know if the Tulla ammo is the cause of it, but from user reports I've heard about that brand, I'd suggest you stay away from it. Every problem you can think of, from misfires to squibs, have been seen. Of course, also see reviews that some folks get good service & like it, so maybe inconsistancy or unreliability may be the best way to describe it.

I couldn't tell, for sure, from the pics, but it looks like the brass on the rounds was just harder than the finish on the gun.

When the gun heats up the slide gets soft the ejecting shell could do the damage you seen. I bought a 22 for my bout and it did the same thing.
