Jimenez .380 Review




What do you think about this video?

Gunther88krupp Panther: By FMJ they mean ball or round nosed. Those flat ones are a problem in expensive guns. With hollow points try the hornady critical def. Or xtp or gold dot.

mark warnberg: I wonder if the False Stop on the slide is not meant as a Child Safety?
Old School, "never carry a round in the chamber on any gun", if a person cain´t draw - rack & fire then they should not be messing around with guns.

Keith Gee: Dude can't even say accurate correctly. Goes to show you have to be retarded to buy such a "gun"...

Benjamin Trembly: At one point I owned the black version. My issues - If the mags had more then 3 rounds in them they would not feed. I purchased 4 additional mags from the manufacturer and they all had the same issue. Because the gun is so small you have to be very careful how hight you grip the gun. The slide will bit the user on a regular basis if your not careful. 

John Mosey: Doesn't look cheap.

1943Grandpa: I paid for a Hi Point C 9 for my daughter.  She wanted a home defense 9mm to go with her concealed carry 380.  That $150 Hi Point runs as flawlessly as her Ruger.  I trust the Hi Point.  My daughter will run 20-30 shells through it about once a month, alternating with her LCP and 22 auto and revolvers.  My wife is getting a little 8 shot Ruger LCR and a carry permit for Christmas.  Grandma is old.  I would get her a 32, but ammo is harder to find.  8 Aguilla 1,750 fps 40 grains should be a deterrent, even if it will ony be about 1,000 fps out of that little barrel.  I thought about getting grandma a 22 magnum, but 22 mag costs almost as much as 9mm, and I want her to practice for shot placement, which is most important.  I believe in gun control!  If the old woman is ever attacked, head shots are best!  She will get 4 double taps out of the little Ruger.  Grandma will practice double taps at 3-5 yards. 

NY Sledge: DO NOT COUNT ON THIS GUN TO SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Randy Pelton: I own a jimenez ja nine and its more relyable then my 1911 ohhh sjit did i just say that me 200 dollar cheapo works beter then my beloved colt camander oh yeah it does 

ultramegabob2: What a total piece of crap....

Jeremy R: Just bought this as my first hand gun purchase. Gotta take advantage of my 2nd ammendment! 

1943Grandpa: George Zimmerman would probably be dead if he didn't have one in the chamber.  If you are a knock out game victim, you want one in the chamber.  Most scenarios are not going to give you time to chamber a round.

nick calderone: Great review by the way! Very thorough and full of great information. 

nick calderone: I own this pistol and a Kel Tec P3AT... The profiles of both guns are VERY close. The Jimenez is wider and heavier though. These guns seem to get a bad rap but honestly I have no complaints. I did polish the feed ramp and smoothed the slide rails as well as a few other tweaks. No issues whatsoever. It's a great gun for a great price. Is it as feature rich as a Shield, Bersa or a Ruger etc? Nope. Was it designed to be? Nope. For a pistol in the under $150 price range, it is a great deal. Sure, you may have to tweak a few things, but it's just as reliable as any other. Heck, I have seen Berettas and Glocks with issues too. No one seems to hoop and holler about them though. Lol...

Carlos Valles: Thats not a jimenez..
Thats a PANCHO. isn't??

Njal Thorgeirsson: That is WAAAAY bigger than a Kel Tec .380.

OMer Efe: Don't waste your money on these guns just buy Canik55 if you want something worth for your hard earn money

Otto Weber: How much should cost a repair of that feeding ramp fabrication defect? OK, it depends on the gunsmith's reputation... Let's say 25 bucks or so?

Mathias Dosch: Jimenez are junk.

tony b: these are the guns thst end up in da hood for 50$ and hipoint ,lorcin jimenez same crap also amt. garbage 

Tracey Rainey: never fails? the cheap gun that must have round nose ammo and it seems you get the crap thats flat nose every time??? seems every guy that buys one of these gets this ammo and complains!!
