There may be a review on it somewhere on here.

Yeah not too sure about it. Seems like the same reason I don't like Taurus, cheap knock-offs of other guys work.

I don't have a Mosquito myself, but 3 of my good hunbting/camping buddies do. So I've handled and fired them extensively. They seem to be ammo sensitive, but once you find what they don't like, avoid that ammo and you will have few, if any, problems. The "feel" of the Mosquito is great. accuracy, of those zI handled was quite good as well.

Have your wife shoot and handle a Mosquito if possible before you write them off.

It seems like the small .22 handgun market is pretty slim pickens, why is that?

There isn't too much of a market for them.

Most folks that want a small pocket/trail/hiking weapon buy a centerfire.

That's too bad, really, because attacks by large (4 legged) predators are extremely unlikely.

I just went through the same analysis and the Ruger sr22 won. From what I read, many of the 22 are very sensitive to ammo. The Ruger seems to like everything. My wife absolutely loves it, and it fires like a dream.. Very nice and well made pistol

Yeah I think I'm going to go with the Ruger. Unless anyone has anything bad to say about the sr22, speak now or forever hold your peace! lol

I have a mosquito, have shot the Ruger and the Sig/GSG 1911 in .22. If I bought another I'd get a 1911 style. Super accurate and eats any ammo. You might want to try it before committing

I would flip a coin between the SIG 1911-22 and the SR22. Both are great pistols and fun to shoot. Both can be fussy initially with ammo. And both are a lot of fun to shoot.
