    Actually. I've had one for several years, passed it down through 2 sons and it still shoots great.
    I have a j-22 that is an unadulterated piece of crap. I've broken it down, cleaned it thoroughly, polished the feed ramp, fed it everything from CCI mini-mags to Stingers and nothing will feed an entire magazine. Two out of 6 rounds jam. In addition that useless safety comes on by itself, so I finally just removed it.

    I'm waiting for the local "social justice group" to have another buy back and offer a $100 grocery card to turn in a pistol. I'll turn in the pistol, but keep the magazine and sell it on gunbroker. :)

    As for the turn-in, I have heard of some rather expensive guns ending up in there. Perhaps some retired elderly spouse or someone unknowingly gives up a rig valued at 2~3k! I sometimes wonder if the sponsors are allowed to pick and choose what they like from these the turn in programs.
    No need to wonder the PSA said that "all turned in guns would be destroyed except those determined to be useful for training purposes" Which translated means if we see one we like someone in our department will end up with it in his personal collection

    Perfect invasion of your privacy. If your state didn't require handgun registration, you just gave the government all of the information they needed to put your name on their list.

    Dumping it at a yard sale with a receipt/transfer hand-written on a cocktail napkin would have been better than opening yourself up to a microscopic examination by an anti-gun government. When the anti-gun congress and administration starts seizing guns, they'll come to the houses they already know about.

    The idea that police will get guns off the street is noble. But the guns on the street used in the commission of a crime by criminals is not likely to turn up at a police swap meet.

    And frankly, I, like most people, resent the use of tax-payer money to purchase firearms sold by law-abiding citizens that, if they really wanted to dispose of those firearms, ought to be selling the guns on their own. Instead, they'd rather save a few bucks on a classified ad and put the burden on the taxpayer.

    A little over a month ago I turned in a Charter Arms AR-7, .22 long rifle that I had owned since 1989. It did not function since roughly 1998. The firing pin broke and the gun was useless. It was always kind of a POS to be honest.

    I got a $100 walmart gift card for it! Used it to buy ammo for my Glock!

    There was no transfer of info. I handed gun over he handed cash over. Took all of 5 seconds.

    Man did you do good,

    Detroit had a getto gun turn in 2 weeks ago, and all they were giving was a whole whopping $15.
    And it said the "program" would end when they reached the 75 gun limit ,

    Good TV

    My son always enjoys thinking about the TV reporterette who was interviewing people at a gun buy back in Denver [?] a few years ago.

    She got a guy with an arm load of pistols to interview.

    It went something like ...

    What are you going to do?

    I'm turning in these 6 guns for cash.

    What will you do with the cash?

    Buy an AK47!

    Yeah ... On one hand it's a great deal if you have a broken, worthless gun.

    The downside is you know that some useless old hag is going to be holding it up in front of the cameras, showing how a deadly weapon was taken from the street and the buyback program saved a life.

    That's about like saying if you turned in a spoon, that obesity would decline. But you know that's what they say.

    I have a J22 from the 80's . Yes I can agree with the assesment
    of the other posters on jennings reliability and accuracy.
    I could not hit a beer can at 5 feet 3 out of 7. and 5 out of 7 would jam.I filed the extractor a bit and improved it some (but not much)
    So you made out well.i wish they would have a program like that here.
    I thought about using the jennings as a deep sea sinker for cod fishing in maine.
