There's a guy at a shop I deal with that wants to trade a Holley carb that I have that needs rebuilt for this gun. Is it worth it or is this a pos gun. Thanks

Youtube review of this pistol

Found this review as well

Jimenez Arms JA-22 Review

So, one guy at the gun show had a bunch of Jimenez Arms laying out, with a sign saying $89! How can you beat that? For $89, he was offering brand-new .22LR and .25ACP JAs in blue, stainless, and chrome. I couldn't pass it up.

I chose the .22 because I already have that cartridge in my arsenal, and because it's super cheap ammo for just-for-fun shooting.

A little history for ya... Jimenez Arms is the phoenix from the ashes of the defunct Bryco, which was sued into non-existence a while back. Bryco had some safety issues, according to the State of California, as well as a death from an ND. One of the employees bought the remains, renamed (and later relocated) the company, and started stamping out the same weapons as before.

the infamous Jiminez Arms company. do a Google search of them, and Bryco, Davis Arms, Raven and a few others. cheap made pistols with less than stellar performance and known for breaking. i personally have owned a couple in the past that one the slide broke on and the other the frame cracked. in simple terms, JUNK!

I dont know what your Carb is worth but you know that NE Jimenez arms can be had for less than 90 bucks...

That carb is worth $75-$100

IMO, the carb is worth more money, even if it need rebuilt!

But I would rather sell the carb and put it towards a beretta u22 or a s&w 22 I been looking at.
