I'm hasgun again, but not the one I want. My k-frame is gone. Somewhere between my idiot sister-in-law and her idiot baby daddy, that one was "lost." Fuck, I hope someone pawned it. Better than losing a fucking firearm.
Anyway, the one returned to me was my back-up/fuck around piece, a Jimenez Arms .22 I purchased new a few years ago. It didn't work that well. I took it to the factory (they're close), they worked on it, and surprise! No difference! From what I've read online, the thing to do is sand and polish the innards, and I figured that's worth trying, but a lot of variables there. What grit should I use? Should I just use steel wool? What kind of polishing compound? Feed ramp and slide rails of course, but anywhere else I should hit? Seems like it could be a fun little project, and if I completely fuck the thing, who gives a shit? It's a Jimenez.

My only advice is to check local pawn shops for broken clones that you can buy for like $10 and canibalize for spare parts. I think firing pin breakage is the most common culprit.

Personally, I would not mess around with anything made by Jimenez Arms, as they are makers of notoriously cheap and shoddy "Saturday night special" guns. All firearms manufactured by Jimenez Arms are constructed of injection-molded Zamak, a zinc alloy pot metal. Hi-Point Firearms also makes ghetto guns containing Zamak zinc alloy, so Jimenez is in poor company.

Back around 2005 or so in Arkansas, a friend showed me a little pistol that looks like yours, RaceMixer, and he said it wasn't working right. I could see the top of the slide was widely cracked almost to the end. I told my friend to give that gun to the cops to throw away as the next time anyone fires it, it may blow apart with unfortunate results.

- This is a Jimenez JA 22; a compact, semi-auto pistol chambered in .22LR. These firearms were, and still are, manufactured by Jimenez Arms (formerly Bryco). https://www.egunner.com/jimenez-ja-22,name,10970195,auction_id,auction_details

Or call around to some local gunsmiths and gun stores and ask if they know anyone who has experience working on Jimenez Arms pistols and then take it to a recommended gunsmith if his repair rates are reasonable.

For an inexpensive .22, I recommend the Ruger New Model Single-Six. I have a stainless 6.5" single-action in .22LR and a swap-out cylinder for .22 Magnum. She's a sold, accurate, reliable revolver, but some folks just don't like revolvers and more don't like single-action revolvers, but I like them. And I like how they aren't finicky with ammo as many other .22 autos can be.

I bought a cheap Brazilian Taurus-made Rossi .22 Plinker 4" double-action revolver for a kit gun (stick it in fishing or hiking kits). These kind of handy DA revolvers are recommended for home defense as they won't deafen you and blind you when shooting indoors and the little .22 won't go through a dozen walls like other high-velocity rounds will when you miss (and even when you hit).

Make sure to get the later Taurus-made models as the original Rossi made notoriously poor revolvers. Even the Taurus Rossi Plinkers are notorious for cylinders jamming and timing problems on occasion.

I actually like the feel of the squishy "ribber" grips and mine shoots so far without any problems (although I have not shot it much as I greatly prefer my Ruger Single-Six .22 to this Brazilian DA 8-shot).

Lightly sanded feed ramp, slide rails, and anywhere the slide interfaces with any surface. Went over the inside of the slide with polishing compound, a substance that I haven't used before. I expected it to be more... pliable? I got some of it on a cloth and rubbed it in there then rubbed it back off, but honestly don't know if I used too much or enough or what. Racking it, it is noticeably smoother. We'll see how it shoots.

Better. Still not good. I think part of the problem is I never shot it enough to break it in. I put about 100 rounds of CCI minimag through it. I had some initial trouble with misfeeds during rapidfire. It smoothed out considerably as I kept shooting, then the jams started up again towards the end. I expected that. This little fucker isn't like a good Ruger rimfire or Buckmark, eating a brick between cleanings without major issue. Gotta keep it clean. I think I can get it to a point where, from a state of cleanliness, it will reliably fire.

>> No. 108961 ID: 7bc924
  >>108960
Yes, that is the problem of the diminutive .22; not much wounding power to take down an incensed human or even an irate cat. Some people dismiss the .22LR completely, but that ignores all the corpses in our nation's morgues and graveyards put there by .22 bullets. Mafia hitmen (as well as OSS saboteurs and other spies) are notorious in their use of .22 handguns when assassinating people. a .22 Long Rifle suppressed semi-automatic handgun is compact, thin, lightweight, and nearly silent. For close work, it is an assassin’s delight. But, it is not a weapon of choice in a firefight. A suppressed .22, outside of some VERY specialized firearms, is about as quiet as it gets. They're one of the only suppressed weapons out there that are “movie quiet” - just about everything else sounds like a pneumatic nail gun, or worse, just not like a gunshot.
Union attorney Allen Dorfman (portrayed in the Hollywood film Casino by actor and comedian Allan King) and rogue engineer Gerald Bull (who attempted to build a super artillery gun for Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein) were both murdered by multiple .22LRs to their heads.
Testifing in New York - My Blue Heaven https://youtu.be/KZQSo5VCJic
"And then they killed Nicky Capelli, right behind the ear with a .22. Richie loved to use .22s because the bullets are small and they won't come out the other end like a .45. See, a .45 will blow a barn door out the back of your head, and there's a lot of dry cleaning involved, but a .22 will just go in and rattle around inside of your skull like Pac-Man until you die."

Small handguns have been the preferred weapon by assassins in literature for many reasons. Take it from Ian Fleming who wrote that James Bond’s favorite weapon was the .25 caliber Beretta 418, normally derided as a "lady’s gun". It was small enough to be easily hidden and yet very effective in the hands of a marksman, even though the .25 Auto (6.35x16mmSR) is even weaker than the .22 Long Rifle. It was only after Bond has a close call in From Russia With Love, that M forces him to adopt the Walter PPK in the more powerful 7.65mm (.32 ACP) cartridge. https://jamesbond.fandom.com/wiki/Walther_PPK

Nah, trash it. Probably not worth your time. Get a stainless Ruger Single-Six or an even cheaper Heritage Arms Rough Rider for a nice target .22 revolver. Or a Walther P22 for a good automatic.

* Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory

Fuck that. My MK II is tighter than an 8 year old... back injury... As such I have a specific paper clip to pull the jack-knife apart, and a dowel and hammer to punch out the bolt stop. That said, it's doable. Mine has the heel magazine release, which I like just fine.

>>109004
I would skip the 3. I have a 2 and 4. The MK 3 added the stupid ass magazine disconnect safety, which makes it even more complicated to disassemble. The new MK 4's are cheap and go pew and run pretty well. Pick whichever variety you like. I wanted the blue one with a non-threaded barrel. (Because CA.)

One note about rimfires, they're not reliable at all. We did a 3-gun practice night with rimfires only and everyone's guns choked so much we gave up on using the timer. With bulk cheap ass .22LR, my MK 2 Target will get through about 100 rounds before the stoppages start. By 250 rounds, I'm clearing a jam every 3 rounds. Hotter ammo like CCI mini-mags or stingers work better.

Also the unjacketed rounds have massive lead buildup. After neglecting the MK 2 for like 600 rounds, I could barely push a brass brush through the barrel.

At the moment I've got enough disposable income to just shoot 9mm so the .22 is relegated to training noobs. (Though with a good amount of dry fire on the 9mm. Shoot a mag, do a couple dry fires. At home dry fire between rounds of Battlefield.)

That is annoying but removing the stupid magazine safety is very easy. I'm using a MK3 in the webm, and I took that retarded "safety feature" out even before I had a live round through the gun.
>22 reliability
In my experience, that has a lot to do with ammo. Using the cheapest piss tends to give you... Well... Piss results. I have 8 semi-auto 22s, they all seem to love CCI Standard. It's not that much more expensive, it's fairly accurate, and all those guns can fire 1000 rounds average before any stoppage of ant kind. I usually clean and oil every 1k rounds and drop some oil in the action after 500ish or if it's looking dry. I use regular hoppes oil, on one of my marlin 795s, I shot 4k rounds just oiling. The gun was weeping black ooze but it still ran fine with CCI standard, so I decided to clean it and oil it after all that since I saw no point in dragging the test out further.

I saw on the interwebs that it requires a MK2 hammer and bushing? Or do you just yank it out?
>> No. 109009 ID: 6fe1bd

I didn't have to modify my hammer. I did, however, cut the magazine safety "lever" down until it looked like a washer. It then acts like the bushing you would buy, but costs nothing.

Trigger pull improves noticeably, and I saw no other differences in function or maintenance.

It is my experience that the old .22 rimfire is one of the most malfunction-prone rounds to use in automatics. Even the best Olympic-grade semi-auto pistol will have feeding problems with .22 LR. Some pistols won't feed certain brands at all and even other better-suited brands after a prolonged breaking-in period will still jam and stovepipe way more than say a 9x19mm pistol will. That's just the nature of the .22 beast. That's why I prefer .22 revolvers; if you can jam that cheap fodder in that cylinder, it'll usually fire.

- Walther GSP, Gebrauchs Sport Pistole (Sport Pistol for Standard Use), is a single-action, precision target shooting pistol made in Germany by Walther Sportwaffen. It has the same technical base as the Walther OSP and thus is almost identical in outward appearance, albeit slightly longer and heavier than the OSP.

The GSP was introduced on the world market in 1968 and was chambered for .22 LR. The anatomical, adjustable walnut grips are also available, on order from Walther, for left-handed shooters. In 1988, Walther introduced a fully adjustable (for pull, stop, and angle) two-stage trigger that athletes could purchase as a retrofit option. Learn more about the GSP here.

Walther OSP - The pistol features a Morini grip, which places the bore at a lower level to reduce recoil. The barrel is weighted and ported, and felt recoil is virtually none. It comes with either a 2.2 lb (1,000 g) or 3 lb (1,400 g) trigger.
This .22 Short Olympic target pistol was made for the 25M rapid fire pistol event. It was so good it was outlawed from competition by eliminating wrap-around grips, 22 short, and ultra-light trigger pulls.
