Jennings Parts - Help!


I got the following comment on an older post regarding the Jennings J-22 .22 caliber pistol. The Jennings seems to have a bad habit of coming apart when fired every so often, and the slide spring and the take-down latch are sent flying, and that sounds like what has happened to John, by his comments.

Do any of you know for sure of a good source for Jennings parts? If so, please post a comment for John with the info. I'll send him an email telling him to watch for the comments.

Also, if anyone has found out how to prevent this problem, (besides not firing it) that would be helpful too. Thanks, I know you all can come up with some answers for John!

Hey dude i bought this 22 cal about a year ago and i loved the way it shoots! but now i cant shoot it anymore cause i cant seem to find some parts for it, i need the button part that came out when i shot some cheap 22lrs thru itand it came apart. can you tell me where a man could find some parts for this gun? i have a few other guns but this gun is the best one if i get it fixed. you can send me back some email at (xxxxx@xxxxx.xxx) thanks hope you can help me out, ive tried everywhere to get these parts. the little red button that goes in the back of the gun that shows it is loaded, take down pin i think, it isnt there anymore. thanks for your time. i,ll wait for your reply if you do. good bye, john.

Although there's no denying that the Jennings is not the highest quality firearm ever made, for some reason it's kinda fun to shoot!

They're made of pot metal ... and the pins are mild steel.

The only reason they are rifled is to avoid becoming an AOW.

Any replacement parts you build by hand are probably goping to be made of better quality metal than the originals.

Numrich is the obvious place, and they claim to have every part for it (though whether what he needs is in stock or not is another matter).

I'd be tempted to just track down another one, if it was me. It's not like a J-22 is an expensive pistol.

You can buy parts from http://jimenezarmsinc.com/22lr.htm
They have everything you need. This is the same company under new owners.
