Default Jimenez Arms 380

I took my JA- 380 out(with different ammo) along with my 40 cal I just got and I wanted to see if the 380 would start acting right,BUT of course it began jamming after I shot the 2nd round,it wasn't as bad as last time,this time I just had to pull back the slide and push it forward to get the round in the barrel,but it is a real pain as I spent $25 sending it back to Jimenez(they had it for 20 days) as I wonder if they done anything to it at all,as they said it was the clip that was causing the problems,so why did I get the same clips back and not NEW one's.???.I am going to call them and ask them to send me 2 new clips(like they should have before),(These clips cannot be found at local gun shops)if they don't I will be DONE with Jimenez products.At least my 40 cal. I got fired like a dream,but it also cost me 3 times as much as the JA-380 did,but it was worth it as now I have a REAL gun.

Kind of on the low end of the pistol spectrum but if it shoots, enjoy. I used to have a couple of Ravens in .25 ACP a long time ago. They were $59 each but fired everytime I pulled the trigger. Wish I still had them. Lots of cheap fun there.

I just picked up a Jiminez J-22A at the gun show today. It was $99 for a new one and it came with two 6 round magazines. It is very light weight and has a manual safety. It can also handle stingers. I like it much better than the other cheap gun I had, a Phoenix Arms .22.

I ran three magazines through it today. I had to bump the slide twice because it did not cycle the next round properly. Maybe it will get better once it is broken in. In any event it is something I can leave in my car and not worry too much about it being stolen.

I went through and cleaned the gun up as outlined on the website. It makes a huge difference.

That coupled with clipping about a quarter to half inch off each magazine spring.

It is a good gun, you just have to finish everything the manufacturer did not. You also have to go into it realizing that this is a gun you just paid $100 for.
