And some people wonder why I shit on those SNS.I had a J22 many moons ago. Got it brand new, in the box. First time out, first magazine ran flawlessly. Second magazine, 3 rounds in and it literally came apart in my hand. Slide and recoil spring went one way. Takedown pin, firing pin and spring went another. Found all the parts, cleaned it, checked it for flaws and tried again. 8 rounds in, it did it again. Took it back to the dealer, got my money back, and said the hell with it and bought charter arms .38. Lol
That’s the only one i ever had a major problem with. I had a Lorcin L380 for a long time, and I really liked it. Unfortunately the judge decided that my 2nd exwife needed it (and pretty much everything else) more than i did.And some people wonder why I shit on those SNS.
I've had the same issue with Stingers. Regular old CCI Blazer bulk ammo runs just fine, but I've never had luck with much else. I am going to try Federal Punch out of it to see what happens.Your Jennings manual must be a different version than mine. The one I have doesn't appear to make any ammo recommendations whatsoever.

Jimenez Arms did provide a list of recommended ammo for their JA-22, which did include Stingers. Here's what they suggested for the JA-22:
RECOMMENDED TYPES OF AMMO
22LR: 40 gr FMJ (Full metal jacket) / HP (Hollow point)
-CCI Mini mags
-Federal Target Load
-Federal Game Shock
-Winchester Super X
-Ball or Round nose / Brass Casing
FWIW, I never had luck with CCI Stingers, the casings pulled out from the barrel just fine but they always got stuck in the ejection port. I figgered it was due to the casing being a tad longer.
