Hammer it a bunch of times! No seriously, it's been a while so I hope this is right. You push the round area that fits around the firing pin on the back of the gun. While this is pushed in you pull the slide back slightly and then up. The slide should come right off.

look at the back of the slide. push in the piece with the hole in the center and pull the slide back and up till it come free of the rail then go forward and off the barrel.

I load mine with CCI mini mags and it will cycle 100%.

kyle is right on how to disassemble, but make sure you look which way the firing pin comes out short or long side, also watch spring under barrel it can fly. have sold over two thousand of these at my store cheap but fun to shoot. makes a plinker or tackle box snake killer

I use a pencil point to push the center hole takedown behind the firing pen.

+1 on the cci. Mine works flawlessly with the mini-mag(as does my bobcat).

I shot a bumble bee in flight, hovering, with mine last year on the third shot at a distance of 9 feet. I also have taken squirrels with it.

I have one of these. Like many, I bought it when I didn't know any better. It is reliable only for about 1-2 mags of Stingers and then it becomes so fowled up it would not feed anymore. To be fair, this was fine for my purposes as my intended tactic was to simply draw the gun, rake the slide, shoot point blank at the badguy (essentially make a lot of noise), and then run like hell in the other direction, hoping he'd be stunned and not stupid enough to pursue an "armed" victim. I had no plans to stay put and have a shootout using this peashooter.

That said, I really hate this thing. I'd already dismantled it with the intention of getting rid of it someday. My minimum these days for carry purposes is a 158gr +P+ 38Spl LHP when something more powerful is not practical to carry concealed.

Amazing, I have had one for 20 years and it still shoots great. Just doesn't like Remington ammo though. I have probably put 3000 rounds through mine.

As a matter of fact, I do have to have permission to own a gun. Believe me, I've seriously thought about moving.

I got into a conversation about this with a fellow shooter a few years ago and he made a point to say that it's easy to "run" to NH, ME or some other free state, but it's takes a little something to stay and fight. When he meant fight, he meant say stay active politically, attend the pro-gun rallies, write letters, etc.. Meaning, don't let the liberal weenies win so easily. After all, if the state completely falls, the presedence would have been set and the rest will follow. For the MA gun owners that remain, I will continue to fight until it's over. I can always move out when the time comes.

jennings j22 safety

I have a jennings j22 that I bought years ago for my wife to shoot, and I get it out and shoot it every once in awhile. never had any trouble with it but now the safety won't work. The little ball bearing has worked itself through the retaining hole and jams it, any suggestions on how to fix it?

Traded mine for four table dances over 20 years ago. True story.

J-22 Junk

I've had a J-22 for 15 years... complete crap. I am glad that at least some have had decent use out of theirs.... Question: Is the Jennings 9 any good ? George

Are we talking about the Jennings guns from the Ring of Fire namesake with other quality manufacturers like Bryco?
