The Jennings J-22 .22lr pistol is very simple to field strip. This gun is definitely not top of the line but it was my first so i have gotten attached. It has preformed well but is somewhat picky with ammo CCI Minimag is best. This instructable will show you how to field strip the J-22 for cleaning and inspection.
Step 1: SAFETY FIRST Make Sure The Gun Is Not Loaded.
You start by finding a location free of disturbances such as running children, flying animals or other things that may take your attention away from the task at hand. If not it could actually kill you so.... BE CAREFUL. Once you have chosen a safe location make sure the gun is not loaded if it is unload it. If the gun is not loaded check to be sure the gun is not loaded.This is done by removing the magazine and pulling back the slide to visually inspect the chamber to ensure no rounds are present ok one more time the gun should have no bullets. got it? good.
