I like the Browning Buckmark,and have both the pistol & rifle. The Ruger mkii-iii are also great pistols,I just hate the angle of the grip and don't have one because of that.
There is a big aftermarket for both the Browning & Ruger so you can change them up however you want.

DO NOT believe all you read about the Mosquito on the forums. Mine has been great and will shoot anything I feed it. The gun is about 95% of the size of a regular center fire SIG. The Rugers are a PITA to strip and clean. I had one and sold it for a Single-Six revolver instead. Ah, the .22 Kimber conversion unit; these are great and I had one for my SA GI .45. 3 things bugged me about it though. First, the slide does not stay open after the last shot. Second, the lack of felt recoil makes it feel like you are shooting an airsoft gun. Lastly, I disliked taking my .45 auto out of action while the kit is on. I sold it after a few months.
Like you I opted for the Mosquito over the P22 as it has a little more size to it. It's my first and only .22 handgun so I don't have anything to compare it to, but so far I'm happy with it.

Looks bedamned! I have a Ruger Mk I that was purchased at the Ft. Wainwright PX in 1970, and still going strong. A few months back I bought a Ruger Mk III. Eats whatever I put in the mag, shoots like a carbine, $250 NIB from my dealer. There are also a lot of folks that think highly of the Browning Buckmark. You might also shop around in the on line auctions if you have a FFL you can get to for the transfer- there are High Standards, Colt Woodsmen, etc that come up now and again.

I went to Sportsmans today and held the Sig Mosquito... I am in Love.... and guess what.. they even have one in Pink... I cant wait to see how every reacts to a 6'4 feller shooting a pink pistol. Its fits in my had perfectly and is only $360. I think I have my verdict. I saw the Buckmark and neary vomited, haha... looks like an uglier ruger.

Ok, there is something wrong with you....Buckmarks and rugers are beautiful, accurate, reliable, and will shoot circles around your insect pistol.

You're going to have to feed the mosquito good .22 ammo or you will have problems.

My sons Mosquito and the wifes P22 are both good reliable guns. Yes, early versions were iffy. I have no idea why folks think Ruger 22s are difficult to break down and reassemble - just follow the instructions and it's quick & easy. As far as a pink Mosquito - I'd have to pass on that one...

Pink skeeter.


No wonder you don't like the looks of a Ruger or Browning. They don't look like some sissy girrle fairy dust pistol.........................

ive got a pink mosquito too. welcome to the club!! people seem to think its my wife's gn but ihave to explain to them she is the one shooting the .50AE down the range and the pink one is mine. the pink ones are pretty sweet looking since its not that soft rose pink that the S&W guns tend to have its more a hot pink.

The P-22 was an enormous disappointment for me. Picky on ammo, b***h to strip, bigger b***h to reassemble, horrible accuracy.

I was incredibly amped about this gun, and sold it after 2 months, just couldn't take the disappointment any longer.
