New gun problems!
My son Brandon has quite a bit of mowing money saved and he wants to buy a .22 pistol.We went to the gunshop and they had a .22 derringer for $107.00.I told Brandon thats really not a target pistol or a very good plinker.The owner heard me and he said you Dad is right.He told Brandon thats like your last chance weapon.He then said I got something in the back you would like.He brought out a Pheonix Arms semi auto .22 and I sell it to you for $110.00. Its only 4 months old and only been fired 1 time.Its a real nice looking gun its finished nickel and the clip hold 10 rounds.Brandon bought it and we loaded it up and I noticed it didnt look like it had much lubricant in it when I pulled the slide back.Anyway he fired 2 shots back to back and then it jammed. It didnt have a round stuck in it.The problem was the slide was stuck and I couldnt budge it.I noticed it stuck about 3/4 its way back.It wouldnt go back far enough to chamber a new round. I emptied the clip and got the manual to see how it came apart.Its was tough but I got the mechanism that removes the barrel and slide to move forward and then I took it all apart.I couldnt see anything wrong so I lubricated the moving parts and reassemled the gun.Every thing is working perfectly.I loaded 10 rounds and cycled all of them through by hand and no problem.We are going to test fire tommorrow and see how it goes.Does anyone know of this brand of gun or have any reviews I should know about? This is an HP 22A
Tommorrow is promised to know one! Ryan Stevens
