Aannnd. It's dead.

Postby Banned for Life » Fri Feb 09, 2018 1:16 pm

My dearly beloved ja-22 has bit the dust. I brought it to the range along with my 21a and newly acquired Spesco 25acp today. I had 350 rounds of old American eagle 22 I wanted to burn up. This stuff was pretty nasty from sitting in a humid environment so I decided to run it all in my Jimenez 22. :D

I literally made it to the last 20 rounds with out much of a hiccup and then the trigger bar broke off at the reset tab.

Not bad for the amount of ammo I have ran through this thing. I called and left. Message with Jimenez. I'm not real sure they will just send me the new piece. We will see.

Spoke too soon. They called me back and are sending the part to me next week. Should have her running again in no time.

You got thousands of rounds to go before it dies, just needs a part and a li'l caressing

Anyone remember how many rounds 356 had from his 22?
Seems like it was 250,000 or some extreme amount like that.
Some are pretty tough.

356 profile say he has the "14,062 legend" but IIRC it was a lot more than that.

Got my parts from the Mother ship last night. I Put it all back together while my casting pot heated up. Seems to function like it should. I may see if I can get another slide from them down the road. This one is really beat on the inside.

I need to find a new chrome 25acp version as well. I recently started reloading 25acp and have been on a 25 kick.

I load a lot of 25acp. I tend to shoot my Ravens more than any other 25s I have though. Great little guns. The JA25 is just slightly bigger than the JA22. You wouldn't know just looking at it, but you can feel the difference.
