Given the number of pistols and revolvers I own, can't see the need for one in my lineup. My main .22 pistol, a Mk III 22/45 stainless with fluted, 5" barrel. Nearly a tack driver, not ammo sensitive, reliable and not all that costly.

When a couple of more expensive .22 pistols (not Sigs) went down at a youth, 3-gun steel challenge, I got that gun out and it carried us for 2 days. Probably 3,000 or 4,000 rounds downrange. Front sight worked loose. Drop of Loctite, that was fixed.

First day, we had a few failures to feed. Couldn't tell whether they were user induced, cheap ammo, dirty gun or what ... so gave the gun a quick hit with some bore scrubber, a snake, toothbrush, about three drops of oil. Back in the game. Second day, gave it one quick clean in a.m. session and one quick clean in afternoon session ... ran like a top.

I love mine! Bought it recently as a cheap practice gun and it took me a while to get it to cycle reliably with cheaper ammo. Per other posts I have had absolutely no problems with CCI but I was hoping to be able to use ammo that is half that price. I polished the feed ramp and that helped some. Then tried lightly oiling the rounds. Again a step in the right direction. Now I run it wet and still oil the rounds and I have no problems whatsoever. It also gets more accurate with each session I run. Part me part the gun I think. I love the fact that in feel and function it is very similar to my first love the P226.

Sig Mosquito Issues...none here first time out

New here. Hi guys (and gals?). New to Sig as well.

I just picked up one of these for $250 from a friend who bought it new and never fired it. Manual calls for a light oiling and cleaning before firing it the first time. (Have to wonder how many gun guys read the manual first before taking it out.) I also put a drop of Tri-Flow (teflon-based lube) on the ramp.

I went out today and fired 100 rounds without a single FTF or FTE. I know there's been a lot of bad press on this thing, but after 100 rounds, based on that press, I was expecting at least a couple hang-ups.

Loved the accuracy, the sights and the grip.

I feel I did pretty good for the price.

That's my two cents.

Great forum, btw. Looking forward to joining the conversation.

Forgot to mention that I was firing CCI Mini-Mag, the only 22LR and 22 Mag ammo I use in my pistols.

I recently bought a Mosquito at the gun show and after reading the instructions and looking it over I felt it had plenty of lube and put 200 flawless rounds thru it. Used every cheap old ammo I had around and not a single problem. I heard from a dealer that the older Mosquitos (2 or 3 years or so) had problems but the new ones don't. I have buddies that bought the old ones and returned them to Sig and they got new ones back that perform perfect. I also own a 1911 22 cal and prefer the Mosquito.

Happy Browning Buckmark owner here. Lots of fun and cheap to shoot.

I hate the Mosquito and I still can't believe that SIG ever even made it! IMHO about anything is better, but my starting point would be either the Browning Buckmark or the Ruger 2245. Both are excellent and a good starting platform to judge other potential purchases against.

2011 Mosquito Target Runs Fine

My sig mosquito 2011 era model, target version runs perfectly with CCI minimags. They are a PITA to find but work great.
