The company has essentially changed it's label three times, each of which were descendants in some bifurcated way from George Jennings' "Raven" Arms.
Jennings Firearms - started in the late 1970's, and owned by Bruce Jennings - was an earlier incarnation of what eventually became Bryco Arms.
The Jennings Raven - and it's successor, the infamous Jennings J-22 (.22LR semi-auto pistol), was considered to be a "Saturday Night Special", which was generally accepted to be the PC term for a genuine P.O.S.
Bryco Arms, another "Saturday Night Special" - also owned by Bruce Jennings - was the second iteration. This was produced in a different facility in a different city than were the Jennings. Bryco went bankrupt after losing a $20,000,000+ lawsuit for defective manufacture of a .380acp, whose defect was held responsible by a California court for a young boy being paralyzed.
In 2004, some guy named Jimenez bought Bryco for cheap, and resumed making the same models with new designations in Costa Mesa, CA. California State requires guns made there to pass a safety test, which the Jimenez guns failed. Rather than go to the time, trouble and expense of a retest, he moved to operation to Nevada which does not have a requirement for safety testing. This alone would make me question the quality of the Jimenez line, given it's genealogy.
Personally, if a low-end handgun was my wallet's high-end, I'd go with something like one of the Sccy CPX models for about $250-$325. But I prefer Colt's, CZs, Kahrs, and Glocks. But, it's your money, not mine. Buy whatever tickles your fancy. Pax...
