Hi Point C9 Vs Jimenez Arms JA9 Comparison 9mm Review 9mm Pistol




What do you think about this video?

Appolo Geticks: The 10 round 9mm carbine mags will fit into the 9mm pistols.

Robbie Fortner: I use strictly 10 round carbine mags in my c9, fits well that both guns fire the same mags, at least to me, like the combo, I have found very few problems especially after the break in period of about 100 rds per mag

John Honyer: While the Jimenez looks more like a "real" pistol, most people seem to post reviews that are more favorable towards the Hi Point in regards to reliability and accuracy, as well as the issue of being +P rated. Either would work in defense if properly maintained if you ask me.

guy west: have you shot either of the ? 

skynut831: FINALLY!! A truly honest objective view with no BULL SPIT on these pistols! I own both!!! Although I do not consider them low end !! Never a ftf or anything @500 rnds each!! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THAT PRECISE,HONEST AND NO BULL REVIEW !!

Tracey Rainey: HI POINT IS NOT UGLY TO ME? IVE OWNED BOTH AND THE JENNINGS FAILED IN EVERY WAY EVERY TIME I FIRED IT. THE HI POINT DID FAIL BUT NOT NEARLY AS MUCH AS THE JENNINGS. TRUTH IS THE HIGH POINT WAS A BETTER GUN AND BUILD WAS WAY BETTER BUT THE JENNINGS KINDA FOOLED YOU INTO THINKING IT WAS MORE MAIN STREAM IN ITS LOOKS BUT BUILD WAS QUALITY WAS BAD. IF I RAN JIMENEZ ID WORK ON QUALITY AND THE OPERATION OF THE GUNS AND TRULY BECOME A GUN EVERYONE WANTS INSTED OF WHAT THEY HAVE TO SETTLE FOR. I HAVE SIG AND OTHERS BUT I TRULY WANT A HI POINT AGAIN.

Jonathon Blackburn: I own both and the Jimenez is much more reliable. True no +p but it handles reloads find as long as you load to factory specs by being smart enough to read the tables. Good video, like all your videos. Keep it up and to hell with the haters. It's their right to disagree, but that doesn't make them right.

Alvaro Lopez: What the hell. 8 rounds of 9mm on that bulky thing??? Wow. No sorry

CELTICMUTT7: The ja nine is unsafe the hi point is designed better

guy west: I haft toadmit this isabout the only two i can afford 

602Laoguy: i take the Hi point over that POS jimenez .. the Hi point Life time 

Alan Rauenhorst: Mag disassembly goes to bryco/jennings/jiminez. Dont break down a hipoint magazine if u dont want it put back together

aj jackson: ja9 looks alot better

Lisa Holmes: I own glocks but I also own jimenez.... For the money can't beat it

phil hurst: jimenez has lifetime warranty as well.....

Brian Smith: I have owned both and would never own a ja9 again. My hi point ran flawless and my ja9 did not. Maybe my ja9 was older but also the history of the ja9 is not good. Also in my area all the gun shops carry hi point, but none of them carry ja9's. My hi point after some polishing and 100 round break in period has run flawless. I would trust my life with it. That just my opinion, do not hate the ja9 from what I wrote. Do your research and check multiple reviews, but I would not recommend this gun. 

Kevin Telford: I own the hi-point 9mm and I'm pleased with it. 

Brian Klibowitz: Jimenez 9mm is a revamped Bryco Jennings 9mm and the reason I know that is because I used to own a Jennings 9mm that I got for free and this pistol was the biggest pos I ever shot because when I shot it the slide flew off and hit me the face and that pos is also made out of pot metel the gun was good for a paper weight that you could throw your attacker My best advice to who owns these pos guns is to sell them at a gun show and buy a Hi-Point if can't afford any another gun there. Theres nothing wrong with the Hi-Point JHP 45acp I own one and It's a better quality gun then them pot metel pos Jimenezs

Boris thespider: The only steel in the JA9 is the barrel and a few small internal parts . They have no aluminum . The frame and the slide are both cast zinc . That's why they are called "junk guns" . It refers to the fact that pot metals ( cast zinc ) aren't supposedly strong enough to withstand the pressures put on firearms . On March 5 , 2014 , Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) proposed a law banning all Saturday Night Specials . Jimenez is included in the list of manufactures that would be affected by this ban . His proposal is based on two main factors : these guns are unsafe and that they are specifically targeted for sales in lower income areas where they are meant solely for the use in crimes . There is a very good chance that this bill will pass . There have already been lawsuits filed by both the government and the NAACP to force the " ring of fire " manufactures out of business . That's why only Jimenez and Phoenix Arms are left . Neither of them are still produced in California . They have been forced to move to states that don't have minimum safety standards for firearms production . The gun ban on Assault Rifles isn't going to happen any time soon , but the Saturday Night Special is soon to be on the way out . I personally will hate to see these guns go to the wayside . 

eviljoker303: C9 a MUCH better gun.

ColtCommanderdm: One of the best reviews I've seen....PERIOD!!! I currently own quite a few handguns (several Colt's and Beretta's, a S&W M&P9, a Walther P99, a Browning HP, a Glock 19, a Ruger SP101 .357/.38, a couple CZ's, and a few WWI & WWII military handguns). I am not a gun snob, I enjoy building/repairing and shooting any firearm. IMO any firearm that is reliable.....is a good firearm. There are many high dollar firearms out there that are "hit and miss" when it comes to reliability. I personally would rather own an inexpensive firearm that works, than a safe queen that's only there for looks. Once again great video....thanks!

07wrx530: Hipoint way better by way at least it shoots

07wrx530: Ur slow 

garyl43: Is the frame on that Jimenez aluminum or zinc? I know I bought a JA 380 a few years back and it was zinc alloy (pot metal). It was a total jam-o-matic and the roll pins started falling out after less than 50 rounds. Saved me on ammo costs though with a ftf or stovepipe every other round.

r h: ive seen that jimenez somewhere.. Hmmmm let me get in my wayback machine yes its coming to me its aaaahhhh.....LORCIN yep that's what it is an old lorcin. they must have bought the rights to it and rebranded it hopefully they also made it work a bit better my old lorcin 380 from the 1980s was about 1 in 20 FTF

TulsaProject: Good video.

MDPrepper: The Horror, The Horror. . .of the current Gun-Run! I'm glad people are getting armed but this is just getting ridiculous

Rick Head: How many rounds have you put through your jiminez? It's a nice looking gun, but i'm leary about them because they are so cheap.

Spaz: Nice. That's all I need is reliability. Might even make a good go-bag gun.

SpookGoon: you know nothing about the history of jimenez do you? or hi point for that matter, watch some hi point reviews by some creditable guys who know guns. like, moss pawn c9 hi point review....jimenez is the basterd chiled of 3 diffrent companys sued out of exsistance, hope you dont mind loosing a hand.

Life's A Game: Where's the guns? All I see is two large piles of crap. lol jk jk

Bam Cortez: @Vonspyder: C9 is an ugly pistol with 8 rounds & a mag.. U must of been blind re watch this video. He clearly states the Jimenez has better advantage in many things such as the 2 12 round magazines!

MDPrepper: Indeed, and it doesn't shoot like a terrible gun either. It certainly wouldn't be my first pick for personal defense but if your are severely limited on cash then I consider it a perfectly reasonable option. As I said before, it's not the most comfortable shooter but it will function when you need it

ellmiller2013: The JA reminds me of the gun maker Jennings, which I believe is no longer around.

Bushcraft412: First! Good comparison. Hoping to pick up a hp before the april 15th deadline

Lynn Pierce: Ammo is getting difficult to find here in TN.

MDPrepper: I've had wonderful service out of both and I've been suprised that the JA9's I own have prove more reliable than the HP

bryco32: I have had several of both and tons of ring of fire guns and unfortunately I only have the Hi-points left. The JaNiNE is not that reliable of a firearm. After several trips back to Jimenez to get repaired I finally received new Firearms because they just couldn't fix the guns. A Few Months later shooting factory round ball ammo one of the JaNINE splits the frame right down the side. They Replaced the gun but I sold the replacements guns as used and cut my losses. The C9 is the better Gun..

belbro62: nice video, not sure about those guns though . from a price point and value for money, reliability criteria. i'd rather buy commie surplus the tokarev 9mm or better still 7.62, or go with a mak, cz. endless choices on surplus market.

ConnectTheDotsNOW: Very Good video. I appreciate your thoroughness and attention to the details as you review both side-by-side. These 2 ....are....what they are...but that doesn't mean that they are junk. It seems that with a few tweaks and good lubrication they will function when fired. I do not own either...but I am tending to side with the Jimenez. I am also impressed with what look like better-than-basic sights on the Jimenez. Does the Jimenez lifetime warranty stay with the piece or original owner only ?

TRprepper: Good review, I wouldn't rely on either but I guess I'm blessed with the ability to have better guns to depend on. But good to see a review on less expensive guns are out there for people.

Karl Johnson: They are Sat. Night Specials, that makes them inexpensive not necessarily junk. When did JA start making guns again? Old JA guns were really crappy, many of the new ones do look based on the old ones, the LC380 and JA9 look like new designs. Cobra Firearms picked up many of the other gun designs from the old family of Mfg's. Davis, Lorcin, Jimenez, Jennings, Bryco & Raven. I own a Lorcin L380.

bigphreaking: You are clueless about guns dude.....you are better off with a shovel than that. Throwing a Jimenez at an assailant would be more effective than having a misfire or jam and getting killed. There is no "Million dollar gun" Jackass. That is a piss poor argument and you know that. Just buy a SW or a Ruger P95. That is an inexpensive gun that works.

MDPrepper: Thanks, glad you enjoyed the vid. They're certainly interesting pistols if you don't have the money for more

John Craig: i read through the owners manual from their website, and it does not state to not to use any jhp's of any kind, only they recommend fmj because of exposure of lead risk. it does warn about steel cased and hand loaded ammo as well as plus p ammo because of chamber issues and pressure issue.

MDPrepper: I own 2 of the JA 9s and both have performed flawlessly so far. Maybe I'm just lucky but I can't find many negatives other than the stiff/painful recoil. They've been reliable and accurate to a fault. Maybe the newer models are better than the older ones?

dlt215: I also agree onthr the hi point may release because I was sitting on a friends couch and got up my friend goes u forgot your mag.

luisangelmartinez261: I've shot the hell out of my jimenez 9mm and has not failed me or jammed good gun.

Chris Kelly: here the c9 goes for $200.... I think that's to high.... id opt for the sccy 9mm

MDPrepper: My problem with surplus guns is that I had an accidental discharge with one many years ago when the safety failed. I've got plenty of surplus guns but I don't rely on them for shooting beyond the controlled aspects of the range
