JA 380

Postby ConditionOne » Tue Sep 26, 2017 11:54 am

Got a call today from the LGS, offered me a Used JA 380 out the door for $80 with the box and 2 Mag's. I don't have time right now to do any research, just looking for your thoughts.
Thanks :D

I have the Bryco version. It's not a bad price. Unseen I'd offer them $60-$65. Jimenez has a lifetime warranty, they've never asked me if I was the original owner and have always taken care of me. They are snappy in .380 (Jimenez makes the same model chambered in .32) but it's manageable.

Unless it is WELL used, sounds like a good buy.

I bought one for $65 a few years ago but would glady pay $80 for one that's nice or has the original box to go with it.

The gun is indeed kinda snappy, but if you load your own ammo you can assemble some base loads to tame the recoil. I found with mine that the lighter end of the spectrum (in terms of powder charges) were still enough to make that JA380 cycle as intended without all the recoil.
