periodcoins drip: I have one and the disassembly button cut the crap out of my hand. I filed
the sharp edges off and have not been back to the range with it. I only
have 150 rounds thru as of now. Also the trigger does suck and hurts ur
finger after about 75-100 rounds. Im looking for something to add to the
trigger so its not so small and sharp. I do like the gun its self or i
wouldnt have bought it. I have other low cost guns so i know there is some
work to be done on the internals. Nice vid and keep shooting
gsmith531907: @boulevardtalonman I appreciate it, it was a beginner's mistake....i had an
empty clip and it automatically locks back. My only problem with it now is
that its too big for concealed carry purposes, I switched to the KelTec p32
as my main gun.
boulevardtalonman: @boulevardtalonman If I notice ANYTHING wrong with this firearm other than
a little chipped paint, it will be sent back to Vegas for a tune-up. Thats
what the warranty is for. On a side note, the rep was very easy to work
with on the phone and if I have any issues, Im shure they will take good
care of me.
BulletShogun: magazine sir. not clip. magazine
bigstabby: @boulevardtalonman Cool! Since the rep says low buck remington, i now know
the best ammo to use. Mine is coming in tomorrow, so I'm pretty excited
about it. I've also heard that since they've moved to Nevada the quality
has gone up so I'm hoping to get a nevada model.lol
chrismc410: Another way is to save another $150 and get a used S&W 5904/5906, 910 or
915 if you can find one. Cops carried 5904s/5906s for years and the 910 and
915 are based on those models. They may not be a Glock, HK, Beretta or Sig
but they are unquestionably first rate firearms.
Rex Henderson: Have you noticed the difference in pressure you must apply to release the
safety catch when a magazine is in the gun versus when there is no
magazine? Mine is much more resistant with a magazine in.
UrbanKnight12: Jimenez Arms is a junk gun company that got shut down in CA because of the
hazardous nature of the firearms they produced. The JA9 has developed a
reputation for the slide searing off and hitting the owner in the face,
during operation. Also, the barrel is a part of the frame, which causes
jamming and extreme unreliability. I owned a JA9 as my first handgun. And
it jammed every round and the frame cracked. Jiminez set up shop in Nevada
now, since they got kicked out of CA. DO NOT BUY
boulevardtalonman: @gsmith531907 that is really strange, I would reccoment you call jimenez
before doing any modifications. I havent expierienced that at all, however,
the mags will end up holding 2 more as the springs break-in over time.
boulevardtalonman: @IndicaPro This is not my only, nor first firearm. I do realize that these
are designed with a limited life span, and will most likely not run 7k
through it in a lifetime (the others need a work out too). Each and every
time I go shooting, I dissassemble my weapon for a complete cleaning and
inspection and am yet to have any problems other than some paint chipping
at the crown of the barrell... I called Jimenez and the rep said they would
be happy to fix, but decided to wait.
Garry Thomas: The high point is better than this 9mm but still a piece of crap! better to
buy a better quality used pistol
BJtheBassist: @gsmith531907 Oh, carmex worked. XD! Hey, are you having issues with
dropping your empty magazine with the slide locked too?
bigstabby: @BriansVideoHobby You know, you're the second person to tell me that
quality improved with the move to Vegas. If that's the case, void
everything I've said cuz it pertains, mainly, to the Cali models. Also, I
should try to invest in a Vegas model.lol
UrbanKnight12: @fubuh8r, LOOLZ! Was that all at once or little by little? The JA 9 is
garbage, it was my first pistol 'cause i didnt know any better, lolz
boulevardtalonman: @gsmith531907 it actually sounds to me like you may have just not had your
safety all the way off, I have done this. if the problem presists, call
jimenez, they have great customer service I found out
chrismc410: @SupremeAmerican Or a S&W Sigma or Ruger P85/P89 At least those two are
made by well known gun makers. I've always been of the mind of you can't
buy a reliable pistol for less than $200-$250. Not saying should buy a Sig,
Beretta, HK, Glock, etc. There are some things you have to spend the proper
money for, a firearm is one of them.
William Martin: I have a lot of experience with the JA-9 My first one i got about a year
ago and it performed well after i cleaned it up and did a little sanding.
After 900 rounds the safety/slide release broke and I took it back to the
dealer who sold it to me. He gave me a new JA-9 which has a much better
production quality then the older ones. I took it out last week and put
through 250 hand loaded 115gr jhp without a single jam or misfire. Also
held GOOD groupings. This gun is a good deal for the price.
Badger at Toad Hall: @lordmegatron44 i know assimilated jimenez who use the anglo j and not the
boulevardtalonman: @universaldave999 That actually surprises me, I have always loaded mine up
with 12 rounds and had no problems, with no polishing, and rarely tap the
mag... When I shoot Im running senerios where I must pull from the holster
and put 3 shots on target as fast as possible.
Cody Kitterman: Out of curiosity, what weapon do you use Ak? Unfortunately, for gun owners
like AK, guns are only as efficient as the minds and bodies behind them.
The same goes for just about everything, which includes words. ("BUY do
know my weapons..." Huh?) The Jimenz Nine, as accurate as it is, can't aim
for you. Nor can it, at $150 new, lift itself. Weak asses beware, combating
another man may require heavy lifting, and if your lazy ass isn't up to
it... Pfft, oh well.
sonofadoublegun: Excellent review! Thanks!
BriansVideoHobby: @bigstabby I'll have to talk to a rep then. I know a lot of older reviews
said HP's not recommended, but the weapon apparently went through
improvements when production was moved to Vegas. Later reviews that
specifically mention the Vegas model don't seem to have a problem with
HP's. The biggest issues now seem to be people not using 115 grain, older
magazines, and dirty pistols. The manual doesn't mention HP's.
BriansVideoHobby: @bigstabby I don't see that about hollow points anywhere. Some reviews say
it loves hollow points. Jennings does say only use 115 grain.
bigstabby: @BriansVideoHobby Where are you looking? A lot of reviewers do use
hollow-points cuz they don't know, but if you talk to a Jimenez
representative, they're very insistant you only use ball ammo. I don't own
one personally so I'm not sure if it's in the booklet, but I heard it is.
boulevardtalonman: @bigstabby Thank you for the kind words, I always use win. white box but I
actually spoke to a rep from the company on the phone a couple of months
ago and he reccomended the low buck remington, said he was surprised I
hadnt had feeding problems but still not a single jam (exept the time I
expirimented with flat tip fmj)
David Martinez: I have had this JA-9 for about 4 months now and have shot hundreds of
rounds. There are three things you need to do for optimum performance: 1.
Don't pack the mag. I use 7 rounds. 2. Tap the mag and set all the rounds
flush back. 2. With a Dremel, polish the feed ramp very well and keep it
clean. This gun is incredibly accurate. It is a little on the heavy side
but I like it because it soaks up some of the recoil and it also keeps my
hand more steady.
Sheepdog's Corner: Good job giving the JA9 a standard review. Have you thoughts about
purchasing a Hi-Point C9 (9x19mm) pistol also? They are around the same
price (possibly cheaper), and you could do a good comparison review between
the two. I've thought about doing the same. I own a Hi-Point C9, and I'd
like to purchase a Jimenez / Bryco 9mm.
David Martinez: @boulevardtalonman I strongly believe those are 7 shot clips even though
people say they are more. If you look at the clip carefully, there is a
slot/hole that you see the first round appear when the round count is at 7.
My Jimi is working great! The ramp should be polished on ALL guns, not just
Jimenez. It is a good general care practice. Just my opinion.
chrismc410: @SupremeAmerican The one problem with the PA-63 and all the east bloc guns
is ammo availablity in common stores and even some gun stores. 9x18 is good
enough to do the job but a lot don't want to order online and want to be
able to find the ammo at walmart. You can't do that with 9x18. It is a
reliable weapon nonetheless.
boulevardtalonman: @LONNYCACTUS all I was doing was giving an honest review of this weapon, it
has never missfired or given me any trouble after well over 1000 rounds
cycled thru it.
rob clay: Why y'all tryin to ride this man.. He definitely corrected himself! Get off
the gas smh retards man..
boulevardtalonman: @spookpapa these can be found at pretty much any gun show and lots of gun
shops. the owners of shops that dont have them will tell you these weapons
are junk. if you follow all manufactures instruction, you should not have
any problems with it. shop around the price varies a lot on these things. I
bought mine a couple of years ago for under 150 and do not regreat it.
boulevardtalonman: The hi-point has an 8 round single stack, but the Jiminez in this video has
12 round mags which are double stack, perhaps yours may be a cali model or
something, Im not familiar with the west coast laws but I know that many of
my firearms arent legal in cali.
1Blkkato: For anyone wondering the only hollow points that will cycle without any
issues are the Remington Golden Saber's but they are expensive.
gsmith531907: @boulevardtalonman Thank you. I worked with it and everything is fine. I
passed my concealed handgun class with it...so its trustworthy, but im
upgrading in the near future.
alex blakeley: What about the trigger? In my experiences it's trigger won't work if you
squeeze on it slow or if you don't pull it a certain way.
bigstabby: Oh look, the only sensible review for the JA NINE. You called it like it
is. It's a cheap little gun that can be used for home defense. Everyone
seems to expect another glock clone or something.lol Btw, everybody talking
about the rounds this gun can use, Jimenez strongly recommends you only use
9mm ball ammo and absolutely NEVER use hollow point. And when a gun is this
cheap you really should abide that recommendation. Also, I've heard the
best results are from Winchester white box.
gsmith531907: This is my first gun, and im a little dissapointed. when i put the clip in
and rooster it, it gets stuck on the fire/safety switch. so i end up having to
release my clip and force the switch down so it can release the slide. Is
there a solution for this?
boulevardtalonman: the mag holds 12
boulevardtalonman: @BJtheBassist I didnt notice this problem, but I may have gotten a good
pistol, it is a little tough to load, but leave the mags loaded for six
months or so and it gets much easier (I have never had a mag that wasnt
that way even on much more expensive weapons)
boulevardtalonman: @gsmith531907 Sorry it took so long to get back to ya, and yes, send it
back to jimenez, they will take care of it for you with the LIFETIME
boulevardtalonman: is yours 9mm? I believe some of the smaller caliber pistols have a lower
capacity as well.
boulevardtalonman: @SupremeAmerican I have a hi-point as well
boulevardtalonman: @SupremeAmerican I have a hi point as well
BriansVideoHobby: I put my new JA9 through it's paces today with about 60 rounds. No issues
at all. More kick than I expected. Mag is very tight loading the ammo at
first, Shot very tight groups at 45 FT straight out of the box. I oiled it
well a day before going out. Was using Winston white 115 grain Luger ammo.
gsmith531907: @BJtheBassist sorry im late, but i appreciate the advice. I take back what
i said, everything is fine now. I didnt know it locked back when there is
nothing in the clip...rookie mistake. Everything is fine...i've shot off
alot of rounds, oiled it, and it doesnt jam every other shot like it used
fubuh8r: I had the Bryco Jennings 9MM as my first pistol. Same exact weapon just a
different company. The barrels held in place by a pin. I had the load
indicator break off,hit me in the face,cracked the frame,broke the firing
pin,have the slide come off hit me in the face,and discharge after
chambering a round.Bryco refunded me my money.
BJtheBassist: @gsmith531907 lol, I'm guessing you have the exact same empty mag woes as
me... I heard the mag needs a "break in" period. ie: VERY stiff spring, and
the first two rounds have a high chance of jamming. I guess you could file
down that ramped portion on the mag, or you try to wear down that mag
spring by loading/unloading it, or using some oil/carmex maybe inside the
