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.

Went to my closest gun store yesterday.

Like I said, factory is close. Bet they got some recommendations.

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.

File 156029434066.jpg - (203.28KB , 1600x900 , pistol Brazilian Rossi R98 Plinker 4-inch _22LR 8r.jpg )
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).

Certainly not as good as a K22 Masterpiece, but those are rare and expensive.

Bought some 1000 grit and polishing compound. I'll let y'all know.
>> No. 108943 ID: 4fa264
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.

>.22lr for defense against humans
>> No. 108961 ID: 7bc924
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.

"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
