The Jennings J-22 and J-25, now marketed as the Jimenez JA-22 and JA-25, is an American "Saturday night special" pistol.

HistoryEdit

The pistol began production in 1978 as a product from Jennings Firearms and is their most well known product. The pistol is marketed in both .22 LR and .25 ACP versions. At the time of release, the pistol cost $100. A 2002 publication by the BATF warned that this pistol was extremely dangerous when dropped, with potential for serious injury; this is due to an insufficient gap between the trigger bar and sear, which could cause the weapon to accidentally discharge when dropped, similar to the Type 94 Nambu.

Design DetailsEdit

The pistol uses blowback and is striker-fired. The weapon has an aluminum alloy and frame which was changed to Zamak when Bryco took over production.
