    HI FERG,
    START BY REMOVING THE MAG. LOOK AT THE REAR OF SLIDE WHEN IS PULLED BACK YOU'LL SEE A HOLE , TAKE A PUNCH STICK IN HOLE TILL IT STOPS.
    THEN PUSH , YOU SHOULD FEEL SPRING TENSION , WHEN YOU FEEL IT STOP MOVING AND IT'S DEPRESSED , LIFT UPWARD ON REAR OF SLIDE [*** CARE
    NOT TO LET SPRING AND RETAINER POP OUT OF HOLE OR IT MAY GET LOSED]
    WHEN REAR OF SLIDE IS UP IT WILL SLIP OF THE FRONT . PARTS ,FIRING PIN RETAINER, FIRING PIN,F.P. SPRING, AND ACTION SPRING UNDER BARREL.
    HOPE THIS HELPS , I'LL BE GLAD TO CLARIFY IF NEED BE.

    ANOTHER THING TRY DIFFERENT AMMO. CCI STINGERS I'M TOLD WORK THE MOST RELIABLY. ** CHECK MANUEL THOUGH FOR ANY WARNINGS AGAINST HYPER VELOCITY AMMO IF THERE NOT RECOMMENDED TRY GOOD HIGH VELOCITY AMMO
    LIKE MINI-MAGS - WIN SUPER-X - SOMETIMES IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
    J-22'S CAN BE FINICKY. TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT MAG. ALSO .

    Ferg, I hate to brake it to you, but that's pretty normal for Jennings. I have a old J-22 that I tinker with and I have only been able to get 17 consecutive shots without a jam. And actually, someone here was saying that the high-velocity rounds jam more often on the Jennings and that a regular velocity round cycles more reliably. Do a "Search" (top right corner of your screen) for Jennings and sort through the bashing posts until you find the info you're looking for.[;)]

    A concrete block is the most useful gunsmithing tool for a Jennings.

    Man.....I hate to bash guns, but some brands truly deserve it.

    Jennings would be one of them..........[:D]

    The "ONLY" bad thing about owning "A GUN" is...not owning two or more!

    ferg,

    Please don't do a forum search for "jennings". It will ruin your day!
