Hello. I am writing this in need of some help. My grandfather passed last year, and not until last week did I find out. Being a 3rd generation of my grandfather to carry the name, he left me a few things. 3 of them being firearms. They include a Winchester 30-30 Lever Action, a Smith and Wesson .380 Bodyguard, and this strange one I've never heard of...a Jiminez Arms 9mm. Upon receiving I went and fired these weapons. No issues with the rifle or the .380. I'm in love with the BodyGuard!!!!!! When it came to the Jiminez the difficulty came into play. It just would not fire. I'm just entering the world of weapons, so my knowledge of troubleshooting and maintenance is slim. So I was wondering if there was anyone who owns a Jiminez or has any intel on this problem. I NEED HELP! I like the feel of this gun, and so anxious to see what it's capable of. So anyone that's willing to give a hand, i'd really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

Your not using it correctly, you don;t shoot it , you throw it at what you want to hit.

I also agree....

That's what I feel like doing, but being my grandfather left it I would like to restore it, and keep it. We weren't close, so for him to do that...kinda means something I suppose. But I must agree it's a piece of shit. If it wasnt for it being given to me I would make the frame into a belt buckle...

Jiminez!

LOL, I bought a Jiminez for $20 in 2001. Wanted my money back, lol. But, you got two awesome guns out of the deal and a boat anchor, 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Enjoy your new guns and enjoy the forum!
