Hey guys, haven't been on in a while, thought I would come back with great news. The 11th is my 5th wedding anniversary and of course Christmas is the 25th and I got my wife her gift (for both) yesterday. Yesterday we went to our gun shop here in town, I was looking for some 7.62x54r rounds for my mosin nagant, and was hoping they had an Ak-47 with the iconic pistol grip (the only had a Chinese sport model with the hunting grip) while we were there I saw a nice little Sig Mosquito that just screamed my wife's name.







Purple is her favorite color, she asked to look at it. She really enjoyed the feel of it and I just saw her face light up as she said she wanted it. That is when I asked for the price, I liked what I heard so I said we'll take it, I have yet to see here get so happy and thankful for any other gift I have gotten her in our 5 years. As we left she said she wants a purple rifle so I know what I need to find for next year I guess.

Went to the range today could have been better but was a blast anyways. The wife's new gun shot really well, except the ammo wasn't the best choice going with cci pistol rounds for next time. 50 rounds fine then it started to fail to feed, cleaned it worked fine for a few more clips then back to feed issues. With that said I think it was just an ammo issue so will try the cci pistol ammo next time.

I typically will shoot CCI Mini-mags for flawless firing. I believe the Mini-Mags are the Sig recommended ammo to use. With my Mosquito, I noticed that the more rounds I fire through it, the less temperamental it gets with ammo selection. The guy at my local gun shop tells me that any High Velocity 22 ammo will work, but I know better...

yea i use the cci minimags also and they work great for the first 2-3 hundred rounds after that it fails to eject quick wipe down is all it takes to fix for another 2-3 hundred rounds

I also hope you get the ammunition issue resolved. The purple rifle may be a higher hurdle.
