thatbme35: its a good gun. it has killed many people. POP ! POP!
Karolyn Kimsey: DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDDDDDDDDDDDDDDE!!! You - Too much TalKie- GET 2 THA POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!,
I came here for instructions, not chit chat
Allan Lawrence: I just purchased a j-22 (used) and lo and behold it has been modified just like the one in this video, and looks like the same pistol--one in a million could it be the same piatol? I sure would like to know. I have the serial #, but won`t publish it here. If you would contact me I would appreciate it. I have no concerns or issues with the pistol, I am just curious that it could be the same pistol. I have not test fired it yet either.
Xanifur: I have a J .22 but then I stripped it and put it back together the plastic bit on the end of the spring fell out of place I think i put it in upside down by mistake. Now I have a $40 paperweight. It won't come back apart no matter what. Slide won't pull back far enough to release it. Any ideas?
giacamo1: the best way to fix it is to junk it,,
rudy384: having trouble taking mine apart after cleaning it and putting back together and forgetting to put in barrel spring. any suggestions
frkmtz: Thanx for the advice, will be adjusting mine now.
kenny65able: if you do decide to notch more out of the side. be careful. mine wasnt notched extra and i had a casing blow and blew the slide off and the take down button and firing pin spring with it. im about to get mine back in shooting order.
David Joeaverage: are there any aftermarket parts for this gun?
Rodrigo Baylon: hey there... how stiff does the extractor feel?... my question is because mine feels loose but i am not sureif its normal or it has a bad spring... let me know.. i will appreciate it
Isaac Badgerow: How course of steal wool do I use?
89cruzjc: what if when reassembling it i put spring in first and then the firing pin. i know it wont work any more but how do i get it open i cant strip it any more seems to be stuck at slide wont go back far enough to take off and take down button wont go far enough in to get slide off any one that may be able to help me with this?
Chuck Haggard: I bought a J22 years ago from an army bud for like $25. Mine worked great from the start as long as I fed it CCI Mini Mags, solid or HPs, both worked. Mine was the single most accurate handgun I have owned, once benched at the 25 yard line for giggles and got a 3/4" group. This was back when I was shooting bullseye and competition for the NG and could still see my front sight sharply. I have no idea about the newer guns, but that Jennings was fun while it lasted.
jetpack2133: How to fix jamming at all costs?
Whitney Bradley: wish I would have seen this video before I bought this pistol and yes it is crap
Ricky Lawrence: These guns are CRAP... Had one like it...CRAP...
MrGertrudis: Hi I have a gun just like it, I was at a gun range and got jamed, I had to rent one to practice. any ways ,after seeign this video I took my gun appart but there is a very small spring, it's like half an inch long and a little ball that i see in your video but i don't see the small spring. I really don't know where tis two parts go. please if any body knows where this two psrts go please let me know. Thanks
Maine04657: Neat vid. Check out my J22 mod..
Hueg Morris: Oh yeah if you take the extractor spring out and stretch it just a little it realy get to flinging the spent casings. In my case I was able to put all spent rounds into a coffe can just behind and to the right of my right shoulder, Initaly they would just fling all over the place. I guess from the poor casting of the extractor
Hueg Morris: Maybe this gun should be called the gun smith special with a decent michanical aptitude, understanding of manufacturing, and understanding of how a pistol works can do this to their pistol
Hueg Morris: I had one of these and the bryco 380 You definetly havta strip it completly and debur EVERY THING. when I first took mine out to the range, had nothing but probles, wouldnt eject any spent rounds. I dont know about yours, but mine would only run CCI MaxiMags. Defintly that extractor port/seat needs work, and the face of the extrartor needs the stamp filed flat. After a good parts detailing, gun ran flawlessly but only with the CCI maximags. What kinda ammo do you run?
James Hall: i work in a metal shop, and have been a aerospace bench hand for years. so when i saw this i thought "right, have a gun smith fix this gun for more than i paid for it". What i did is completely break down the gun just like he said, use emery cloth to debur the parts. then use a small polisher to polish the feed ramp, and use a small (1") cut off wheel to cut into the barrel about .150 of an inch. then i worked on the ejector itself. just like he showed.now the gun ejects the shell so smoothly.TY
YuanIsDope: all the guts n springs ..? this is not a body
Noah Diamond: Also, get a 22lr snap cap so you can drop the striker without damaging the pistol for takedown with minimal wear.
Noah Diamond: Sincerely, this really is a great pistol. It's not the BEST gun, but it's WAY better than no gun. If you can't afford a more expensive pistol, you won't be disappointed with the latest model which has been highly refined. I am actually impressed with the new model, and they FIXED the extractor spring problem. It honestly looks like they went over the entire pistol and refined it all over. No need to use steel wool. Just keep it clean. Clean it every 50-60 shots. If it jams, just clean it.
Noah Diamond: That is why it's nick name is the "Bob Marley"... Cause it always be Jammin'!
Noah Diamond: The extractor should NEVER touch the rim of the cartridge until extraction. It is a flaw of the gun. It can cause it to discharge. The extractor is SUPPOSED to move out of the way to prevent it from colliding. When fired, the cartridge recoils back against the chamber and the extractor grabs it. The best thing for it is a stiffer extractor spring. The extractor spring is probably responsible for most of the problems.
Noah Diamond: Great video. You helped me get my JA-22 working almost flawlessly. It still jams at random, but that's the nature of the beast.
francisco61261: mine works just fine with CCI buy hey for the money you get a real pistol, dont torture the gun too much because there made cheap, too bad because these are very good looking little plinkers..
Gestapo Pussyranch: I think the best advice you could give would be, "Dont buy a Jennings".
donalddetwiler79: Open the top up on the ejectionport. From the breach face to the front of the port. I cut 90% of the rib off the top above the port. Now I can fire most any ammo. Do this at your on risk. Dont cut the bottom of the port out. Good shooting! Thanks for the outher mods.
Shanobix209: did you ever fix it?
zentanker: The only real "fix" for this gun is to throw it in the trash. Any efforts to make it anything other than a cheap piece of crap would be a laughable waste of time..
I bought one at a gun show, new in box because I was genuinely curious what a $40 pistol would be capable of. I don't think I ever managed to fire more than 3 rounds at a time without some kind of failure. Most blind grandmothers can throw wet dog turds with more accuracy.
After disassembling I threw the parts into dumpsters
booyalakasha1: @TENNESSEERULES619 Call jimenez at (877) 241-9938 u need: Firing pin assy. $4.00, Sear spring $2.00 and the Takedown button $4.00. Hope this helps.
booyalakasha1: @paul50489 Add thickness to the bottom of the magbase where the mag catch holds the mag in. Use a steel shim and gorillaglue, or call (877) 241-9938 and order another mag.
booyalakasha1: Great info, Ive done all of that, one recommendation is make a recoil buffer out of hard foam or soft nylon and glue it under the barrel where the slide impacts the frame, make it .060 or thinner. Oh and stihl chainsaw bar and chain oil works for me. It's clear, stays where I put it and keeps viscus during long shooting sessions. Cheers
johnnieace45: Got everything working good if I only load 5 rounds into my magazine. If I go for 6, the first round does not feed right. It looks like it does not sit right in there. Perhaps because it is a hollow point?
checkmate440: Found it look up Jimenez arms
checkmate440: Here is there phone number....702 568 5937 There located in Las Vegas...hope this helps
SlickVega: google 'Numrich gun parts' go to 'J' for Jennings, they have almost every part for sale, cheap too i think the takedown piece is like 7 or 8 bucks
SlickVega: holy crap, you really write like that!?!?
SlickVega: that site does not exist as far as I can tell
Asaki90: There is two things you can do. Load 1 less round the it can hold when I did this it stopped jamming and it was perfect. Use remington rounds because they rarely jam but dont use Winchester rounds. If these don't work I don't know what else to tell you
chris jacober: My jennings fails to extract the rounds when shooting it, so i have to rooster it every time. is there a certain .22LR i should use for it?
checkmate440: My Jimenez JA22 works best with remington thunderbolts better than Blazers
felipe garcia castillo: one question were could i geat the clip for this gun or what website could i order it?
vegeta6565: Is it possible to stretch out the spring in the clip cuz I'm having problems taking the clip apart is there a trick to take it apart
smokkedatweed: How do u do u fix the safety my friend says his dnt work
VonSpyder: most .22's are picky about ammo so this is not a case of the J-22 (or JA-22 in my case) being flawed. I have a friend whose Ruger 10/22 will only fire Thunderbolts or yellow box flawlessly but put in winchester or CCI and suddenly it has cycling issues. I honestly think its because the shape of the various .22 bullets varies so greatly. I mean winchester whitebox is almost truncated, TB's are very round, and CCI's are somewhat elongated in the nose.
