    No offense but most Jennings are not worth repairing. I have a J-22. I took a year to finaly spend $4 on a part for mine. I just got sick of looking at it in the safe. It has probably been fixed for about 6 months now. I shot it to test it. Havent wanted to take it out since.

    I agree about Jennings, but they are cheap and so are the parts, so I figure what the heck! I like fixing things and if I can practice fixing guns for cheap then why not?

    Want to trade your Jennings for maybe a box of ammo?

    Careful there. Advertising for broken firearms "flags" you as a repair individual (gunsmith).

    Do you plan to keep them for yourself? No problem.

    If you plan to sell/trade/barter, I hope you have an FFL.

    Go to the BATF website and search on how to get an FFL.

    These programs that ask you to pay for the same info that is free are just trying to get your money.

    If you go further than fixing guns for for your friends by word of mouth I would get an FFL. You don't need to take a course just pay the application fees. I do fix guns for my friends but I won't even take a check. I tell them straight up to pay me in cash. The few guns I fix only amounts to goodwill so it's easy to borrow a gun if I want to buy one like it.
