Re: Is Jiminez any good?

How would one improve their designs to something functional, yet affordable? Isn't that what HiPoint does? These various Raven and Sons guns are pot metal blowback cheap guns that don't work. Aren't HiPoints pot metal blowback cheap guns that actually work? (Which is why they're so clunky and bulky?)
