    Worst failure ive seen. Frame was in pieces. Guys hand was tore up ..slide was split in two. It was nasty...gun was just out of the box for the first time. It sounded like a grenade going off.

    Well they are known for just about everything that is bad.

    That said if I ever come face to face with a bad guy with a gun, I hope the BG is carrying a Jimenez.

    No pics? They're useful for teaching aides.

    I can't believe that those clowns are still allowed to manufacture firearms. Maybe I'll start making my own firearms out of red clay and Popsicle sticks... :rolleyes:
    Terrible. And it's really too bad. A company who can produce inexpensive firearms in order to arm Americans of any budget is good. But this... Maybe Jimenez is an Obama Incorporated subsidiary... :D

    Cheap, crappy guns do crappy things---yeah, they are inexpensive---for a reason! Quality costs money---real steel, not "mystery" metal, zinc castings etc. A firearm should last several lifetimes!

    I know that I don't know everything, but it seems like once you have a factory, the tools, and everything else you need, it would almost be harder to make a crap gun than it would be to make something serviceable. Even Hi Point makes guns that don't explode whe the trigger is pulled...

    Ooh ooh! Maybe it's a liberal plot to discredit the firearm community and AT THE SAME TIME lessen our number by making these "an hero" guns that kill the operator... Lol
