Iver Johnson PT 25

I bought an Iver Johnson PT 25 (.25 caliber) at a gun show recently. It was designed by Erma Werke and looks like a little PPK. I set up some phone books and began testing it and it jammed frequently. I had purchased some ammo at the gun show called Aguila - some of that ammo wouldn't fire no matter what so I trashed that ammo. The other brands all fired fine, but jammed. Anyone have any experieces with this little pocket pistol?

I had one in .22 LR many years ago. Scared the crap out of me when I racked a round into the chamber and it slam fired on me.
Its long gone and I don't miss it at all. :barf:
