IMHO, a poly framed JA-NINE but with a more rounded grip but uses the same internals would be the way to go.
That would reduce the number of parts required and could use existing manufacturing processes to reduce introduction costs.

This is a box with both Clinton's integrity and the new JA pistol inside.

It seems liked there's reason to come up with something
new. The local shop won't touch any SNS, except for a
few Hi Point pistols. No Cobra's, except for their deringers
No Phoenix HP-22, and definitely no Jimenez.

I guess they must make enough money doing what they're
doing.

I talked to a shop owner that was keeping a list of returns and he finally discontinued JA products because with all the returns he couldn't make any money off of them despite decent sales. He gave them a shot and the larger caliber pistols had a massive return rate going through his store. Not a great endorsement.

Jimenez listings on Gunbroker are down as well. As of this morning, a mere 64 Jimenez semi-autos are turning up in a search, including this listing for a J.A. Nine receiver.

Look at the first pic and you can see the dreaded frame crack.

They haven't done anything fundamentally different in years.
Meanwhile, there have been quite a few inexpensive polymer
framed dao guns that are better while still being quite cheap.
You can get a really respectable new firearm for around $250
or so.
If I was in the sns business, I'd try to make a blowback poly
framed 9mm that would accept standard glock magazines.

I don't know of any actual gun shops or even decent pawn shops that carry JA. Around here only the crappiest of pawn shops carry them. Bud's sells them online but not in the store, presumably they are just brokering the sale for someone else as they do with most of their catalog.
