redneckmini14: not something I would use for self defense but it seems like a nice, cheap
JC545X39: For just a few dollars more, I think I'm leaning towards the Taurus TCP,
but I'll keep this one in mind.
Beretta58: This is the kind of pistol that if cleaned, feed ramp smoothed and polished
it can be relied upon. I have had one jam in 300 rounds....but I have many
high end pistols so it does not get used a lot. Probably need to sell it
for 100 bucks. It is like new.
rory martin: To each his own! I'll stick with my revolvers!
H.G. C.: These guns get a bad rep from internet trolls , anti gun activists, and
Democratic operatives who have never owned a gun much less fired this gun.
The most famous lie about these guns is the slide fly's off the frame and
hits the user in the face . If you watch a disassembly it is impossible,
the other lie is about the frame exploding . In .380 the frame will never
crack unless off owner negligence. I have fired clese to a thousand rounds
through a Bryco Arms version of this gun and have no issues and the same
amount of misfires and jams as the high end guns. Accuracy is not that bad
if you know how to shoot you will hit your target every time out to 30
yrds . It is a good inexpensive firearm with a bad rep due to internet
idiots repeating rehashed nonsense.
James phillips: You could do more damage throwing that thing at somebody.
DovahkiinTheLegend: freak that in a dangerous situation i want my crap to work all the time you
get what you pay for
Tony marine: GARBAGE!!!!
Dave Ded: try barnes ammo I use that cuz that's the only thing that feeds rightand it
a hollow point I shot 2rounds no problem
Tommy Ohlrich: Wow u got ripped off. I bought one of those for 85$ out the door.
Chapo Slim: this gun saved my life
Sam King: Just wondering why you couldn't polish out the little ridge that the
bullets are hanging on.
Conrad Luznar: I always carry with one in the chamber, the Jimenez is a farce.
mlotto7: Accurate to 10 yards? Wow. So, ya...I'd take this to the range but never
rely on it for my life.
william jones: I bought this for my first gun at 21 and it was the worse gun I've ever
purchased lol I still have it in the back of my closet catching dust
omfgrifk: These pistols should have come with smoothbore barrels to reduce chamber
pressure.Ofcourse it will decrease accuracy and will give you keyholing
bullets, but if you want accuracy then you shouldn't be buying a gun like
this in the first place.
The pressure needed for pushing the bullet through the rifling will
decrease the life time of this gun big time. Its made out of casting,
zamak/zinc, so it wont take long for the slide/frame to crack.
Conrad Luznar: Or maybe get a Ruger LC380
Conrad Luznar: Why not just get a Bersa Thunder .380 and have a dependable, accurate gun?
MegaJarhead007: it sucks jams up most of the time
mrmikeprice1980: Just bought this gun and after reading reviews I was almost scared to shoot
it but I decided to do the polished and buff process after that it was off
to the range I must say I was a hundred percent satisfied with this little
gun not only did it shoot flawlessly it was pretty accurate as well
Deepsand4wheelin1: same experience here , cause now, how do you get rid of it? Dealers won't
give me anything for it $0.00 !
teif666: Terrible gun at a terrible price. You are much better served with a good
MrJmak223: Is this pistol made out of Zamak like the Jennings J22 pistol?
TheDjuss240: Yea, I understand what your saying. The price is very seductive. Please
listen. It is dangerous! It blew apart in my hand. It could have killed me
or anyone else near me. Guess what? Jiminez doesn't care.I emailed over &
over with no response. I bought a Ruger lcp after I returned what was left
of that drop gun.It's a gun that will protect me, not kill me. Is $350 too
great a price to save your life? My friend got a new one @ a gun show.
laser sight factory installed for $325
W.H. Smith: I'd like to thank you for an honest review. I'm willing to bet that the
pistols fire fine using the recommended rounds and will last well. With
decent care they most likely work very well. I just bought one for testing
recoil of the .380 round in a small pistol.
Mike Zampello: Even if you do get it to feed, it won't eject! It catches the casing in the
slide every 3 or 4 rounds. Also, regarding that false stop, if you will
notice in the video the firing pin is exposed. If the slide slips from your
fingers, and the chrome one will, it will fire a chambered round. It is
very unexpected that it fires without pulling the trigger.
bmw76308: It should come w/ a jar of vaseline too !
SARGE 'O'MENS MC VP: yea i bought that and the 22 cal jimenez
1979aerocaprice: @butchy586 nobody gives a crap that your a bouncer. and haha 250. dude your
not a hardass. quit talkin crap. you dont even know me. like i said you
will never see me anywhere so quit tryin to scare somebody jackass. get a
123lonestargal: My Son's wife bought one and on about the 53rd or less it blew off the
extractor.It is now a single shot POS.My son told her not to get it but she
had to learn the hard way.My son said he thinks you should only use reloads
brass case FMJ ammo filled with Pyrodex/black powder to reduce pressure on
the cheap steel so it won't crack/blow up.
jose martinez: I bought one because it was afortable but know I wish I had just spent the
extra money and bought a better gun.
Wesley Phillips: I have the same gun but i have the chrome and black combo. 150 at a gun
show. Never even heard of them. I looked at this video before I shot mine.
I went out to shoot and expected failure. Honest truth I never had any
feeding or jamming problems. I've more problems out of my Taurus 380. Not a
single firing problem in three trips to the range. I've put at least
300-400 rounds through it. Hollow points feed perfect. I guess it shows
that every gun is different. You got a bad egg
89jonster: I would not recommend anyone buy this pistol, it is terrible. I bought one
and returned it 2 days later, and I was lucky enough to have them take it
back. Gun is very heavy, feeds poorly, the slide would cut my hand up every
time I fired it, over all terrible engineering. Save your money do not
trust your life with this. And btw carrying without a round loaded in the
chamber is completely idiotic and asinine.
butchy586: biggest piece of crap i ever purchased.if you want something reliable try
the polish radom p-64 i paid 150.oo for mine and it runs perfect
TheDjuss240: My brand new one fed just fine. I was using the correct ammo. 32 rounds
later, that zinc coated piece of site blew apart in my hand & nearly took
my eye out. Thanks for clearing that up for us stud. Now go buy a real gun.
airgunplanet: get yourself some cheap steel case tulammo it has a very round ball bullet.
King73AJ: i got one exactly like it and i been using hollow tips since i brought it
and never had a feeding problems. i dont buy FMJ
jammer1mo: Very good review.For the price,make a nice house gun.They had them on sale
here for $139 bucks with extra clip,you cant beat it.
marquezchava: Por ese precio, una Makarov , y es excelente. Saludos
JoseDJimenez: I would buy one if it was good enough to honor "my" last name... But it's
tightspot88: 0:55 "Comparable in size to the Keltec." It's a ton thicker than the
Keltec, and it weighs more than double. It's nearly as heavy as a Glock 19!
Also, the Kel-tec is semi-reliable, and a Jimenez is a failure waiting to
happen. A Jimenez may seem sturdy, but it's basically faucet metal. I shot
a new Jimenez 9mm and .380 recently and both failed within the first 3
rounds. Those were NEW guns! You can buy a good used (RELIABLE) revolver
for $150-200. My life is worth the $50 extra.
HaggardBacon: Those pistols are appalling pot metal junk just like Lorcins, Jennings, and
Brycos. They make Hi-Points look good.
dancindan85: I have a JA 22 and it was worth every dollar. These guns have a brake in
period. And if it cuts your hand when you shoot it, it's because you have
fat hands or you are holding onto it to hard. It's not a .50 cal.
xXJayK1231Xx: go to wikipedia and look up jimenez arms if you dont believe this
FrozenHorse: I use to have the 25 auto version of this gun. All that was wrong with it
was the safty. My fat thumb kept bumping it on when ever I fired it
Noah Diamond: They are hit or miss. I suggest buying one used. Field strip it and make
sure it's intact. It's a great gun. VERY simple, has almost no extra
features, and has fixed sights. The pistol has no slide lock, rails, custom
grips or anything like that, but that means fewer things to go wrong. Buy
one used that is broken in and working. It will save you time. The only
down side with a used pistol is usually the warranty does not transfer to
the new owner. It's OK at the range. Best under your pillow.
Daniel Otte: you must be pickleless
TheDjuss240: These so called,"guns", are nothing but slag zinc gang banger drop guns. I
had a new one blow apart in my hand in just over 30 rounds.I registered a
complaint to Jimenez directly. After several emails I got a response from
them that I could pay to ship their piece of crap machine to them for
inspection. freak You Jimenez! You're the perfect example of everything that
is wrong with this country.
RST1497: It shouldn't be legal how cheaply made these pistols are! Since mine blew
up i've done a lot of research and found that these guns blowing up is
actually common! Both the Frame and slide are made of a zinc alloy, that's
just unsafe, its like 1/10th as strong as steel and more brittle. Saw one
with a slide that broke in half and it had air bubbles in the slide! Very
Very poor quality! I bet man, KelTec makes a way better product, i've been
thinking about getting a PF9.
W.H. Smith: For the guy recommending the Taurus .380 please be aware that the ejecting
empty casings have a tendency to come back and hit you in the face.
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
