PPL i have the same Model hand gun. This gun will discharge when you
chamber a round. Well my gun did. And yes i have tried different ammo ppl. 

Author Martin belcher (2 days)
And so ppl are not confused it doesn't do it every time i change a round.
Only when the gun feels like misfiring. But other then that i like the gun.
So have fun every one

Cool! I love pocket guns, they are my favorite actually. Do you still have

Good purse stuffer for the old lady. Got her a Jimenez 380 at a pawn shop.
Jams up if you pull the trigger too quickly after firing, but then so do a
lot of guns...

Author tony1228810125 (4 years)
@ugslamma I ended up getting rid of it. it's shoots pretty good for a small
handgun but compared to other guns it's pretty lame. it would be good for
shooting something up close when you don't need to have accurate aim but
that's about it. more or less a fun gun for a beginner, or someone who
can't handle any kick. to put it this way, my grandmother has my old one to
kill snakes in her garden lol. true story.

Author stonedkid69 (3 years)
i have the same model but it jams very often. sometimes 3 times each clip.
i use 22 mini mags and winchester ammos. is the gun broken or i should try
different ammo???

Buy 2-3 more magazines and rotate them every month.Leaving one or two empty
for a month.Id check and see if wolf springs has replacements mags for your
pistol.If not buy the springs from Jennings.

@MrTEXAN79 so you havent shot one then? you cant pass judgement on
something you have never experienced. people like you give these guns a bad
name. and your wrong because you are the definition of a gun snob.

Hi Point is the same price, and my 380 DOES not fail.

Author mojoguzzi (2 years)
Just be careful where you point these guns. According to wiki they failed
safety tests in Cali and rather than correct the design flaws the company
moved to less regulated Nevada. I may be crazy but I'd rather hunt around
and pay a little more for a high quality gun like the Radom P-64 or a good
used Beretta. I'd trust a 70 year old Beretta more than a new Jimenez or
Bryco. But then again I never eat at MacDonalds.

Author awomansworld123 (3 years)
Very nice review. Im really impressed with my JA22 after I found out which
ammo it likes. Truthfully because of its size and weight its quickly
becoming one of my favorites to shoot. Thanks for sharing

My 380 is a major piece of shit. I HATE that gun. It would be nice if it
didn't cut my hand and jam bullets everytime I try to shoot it.

remington thunderbolt is the cheapest dirtiest ammo remington makes.

Author Brian L (3 years)
Decent pistols considering the cheap materials they were made of. That
said. It is made of chrome plated zinc alloy save the barrel. Cheap, but
better than nothing for desperate situations. Get something better if you
can is all I say. The review seemed a bit favorable to me. Good video
though. certainly interesting considering the bad reputation of all of
these guns.

How do you know they are made out of zinc alloy?

Author MrTEXAN79 (3 years)
@1970aerocaprice So I'm a gun snob because I work hard and can afford
higher end guns? I have first hand knowledge of what works and what
doesn't? Actually I have shot these guns and I still think they are not
very high quality. Furthermore I think it speaks volumes that no one in
I.d.p.a., P.s.a., military, Law enfc., Secret service, c.h.l. instructors,
etc use these. At least not in significant numbers. Yeah they are better
than nothing but not by much.

everyone always complains about how expensive cci minimags are but in the
grand scheme is 6 bucks really gonna kill you?

Author CDN12Guns (1 year)
Mini Mags are 40gr round nose, they aren't HP. The problem with 22LR in HP
is that out of a pistol you never get enough velocity. Velocitors usually
won't expand out of a pistol like they will out of a rifle.

Author MrToadland1 (4 years)
those are dirty rounds. good review.

Author VenetaTownMayor (2 years)
Hi Point actually makes a decent gun. Too bad they're butt-ugly though.

Author dlt215 (1 year)
I have the ja with cci mini mags and it works fine..
