At a recent gun show, I purchased a Jimenez JA22. (This pistol is basically the same thing as the old Bryco or Jennings .22 semiauto.) The JA22 is one of those "ring of fire" Saturday night specials that everyone loves to hate. I'd read a lot comments on the internet about these Jimenez pistols, and I was curious enough to try one out. The price was only $110, NIB; so, I made an impulse buy and took it home. Here's the data so far: 482 rounds fired 13 failures: (7 stovepipes, 3 Fail to Feed, 2 Fail to Fire, 1 Fail to Extract) That's a 2.7% failure rate 83% of the rounds were Federal 40gr HV. The rest of the rounds were a mixture of Rem Thunderbolt, Win Wildcat, Rem Golden, Win 36gr, and Aguila 40gr SV. The pistol was stripped, cleaned, and lubricated before the first shot, and then after about every 150 rounds. So far, nothing has broken. This performance was way better than I expected.
