Default Sig sauer question

From reading all the info on this site I know Sig has a great reputation & supposedly makes a great weapon....with that being said, why does my sig mosquito suck so much? Is it that a great gun maker makes garbage every once in a while?

Based on my mosquito experiences I would be rally hard pressed to consider sig in the future.

A lot of .22 semis are iffy. I haven't heard much good about the Mosquito, but many people seem to correct malfunctions in many different .22 semis by using CCI minimags.

Alloy Sigs are great. P220, 226, 228, 229, 239, etc. They're what earned Sig their reputation.

The Mosquito and P250 are poor attempts at diversifying Sig's target audience in my opinion. The P250 does have it's fans, however. The SP2022 is a better alternative, but I'll stick with the polymer that works for me (SA XDm).

The Mosquito is about as consequential to a P226 as a Chevy Chevette is to a Corvette. If you want a rimfire for under $400, start with Ruger and Browning. If you want a rock solid $600+ service pistol, Sig's alloy guns are among the many outstanding options out there.

It's not just the Mosquito that is ammo picky. My Beretta Neos target pistol turned out not to like Federal ammo. It really liked CCI, though.

Sig undoubtedly makes great handguns. So does other manufacturers. Does their rep mean that you should abandon other brands for them? Matter of opinion. For what it's worth, several distributors have stopped selling Sig because of their business practices. I was originally told that they were getting too difficult to deal with by one when I was looking to order a 250 for a client. Later I found out exactly what was going on. It seems that they find out what retailers sell more of their guns and contact the retailers to try to get them to be able to order factory direct and cut out the distributors. That's what is pissing the distributors off so much.

IMO, Sig is severely diluting the brand and losing some of the sterling reputation they have built up in the past, chasing the dollars putting out hokey and IMO silly copies like the rainbow style guns, or slapping playing cards on gun slides and calling it "The Gambler".....huh?

After attending a Sig armorers course and meeting the people they employ, it does not surprise me they would build the Mosquito and try to tell us it is a "good" gun. I work on them, but have little desire to own one. I try to not support Douche bags.

Agreed...when you have products like the P226 and P229 there's no need for gimmicks.
