Jennings model 38 breakdown

My grandfather just gave me a Jennings arms model 38(.32cal Saturday night special) I'm trying to find a break down chart or instructions. The last time this thing was cleaned was three years ago when I last took it to the range with my grandfather but I cant seem to remember how to break it down or even lock open the slide.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the professional part:

http://stevespages.com/pdf/jennings_380.pdf

It says that the Jennings model 38 is chambered in .380, so make sure of the caliber.

---------------------------------------------------
The not so professional part:

You don't need to break it down, it will eventually

Why clean it? it won't work anyways

(more wisecracks to follow I am sure)

i posted the same thing for the bryco model. all you do is have some one hold a ball point pen in the hole in the back of the slide( wear the striker would come out of a xd). and pull the slide back and up slowly and it will hit a point where it will come off the slide

It's a Jennings? eewww. Sell it! I'm no gunsnob, but I've had one go off before just after picking it up (thankfully I follow the basics of firearms), finger was no where near the trigger, safety was on, and it was pointed in a safe direction. Sure it was a 75 dollar gun, but needless to say, I won't own one again.

Duct tape it to the end of a baseball bat and you'll have a decent weapon.
