The Unicorns

Postby adam01364 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 6:06 am

I've never seen one, but I remain convinced a few of them exist "in the wild": a Jennings Target .22
From what I can determine, the T22 or JT22 was based on the T-380 pistol platform.

Here's a look at an artist's rendering (from a Bryco brochure)

Here are the markings, and ejector cutouts on a T-380 frame

So any chance of Jimenez doing the right thing and producing a few? It would be a sweet little 22 addition.

My guess is not.
Which is a pity, because it could actually be okay to sell in Massachusetts under the "target pistol" roster exemption.

Bringing the JT22 to market could have been a pretty easy (and probably inexpensive) black box project from Jimenez, but apparently their new gun project has been abandoned.

Sad #1

Sad #2

For me, not knowing anything about the new project, Sad #1 is the real tragedy.
