Here is some info that hasn't been mentioned yet. There are two springs shipped with the Mosquito, depending on which ammo you use. This is from the manual:

The .22 LR ammunition spectrum ranges from very light loads for single loader guns to sport load, utility load and on through to high speed rounds. Unfortunately, however, it is not possible to adjust a semi-automatic gun to all loads.
We have therefore decided to make an adjustment to the loads that have priority for use with the MOSQUITO, which are the two major groups, utility and high-speed rounds. So to increase the round compatibility, we provide two slide springs for every pistol. The bigger bored version is designed for high-speed loads and is fitted in the pistol with delivery. The simple coiled smaller spring (marked white) is for standard loads and is supplied with the pistol.

Quality Copper Plated Round Nose - High Velocity

300-500 rounds...clean and lube once before...again after about 200 rounds...and again when done.

DO NOT BREAK IN USING REMINGTON THUNDERBOLT.

That is very dirty ammo and will foul up the barrel pretty bad.

What you may have to do is buy your ammo off of TargetSportsUSA.

Because they charge a 2-3 cents per round more - their offerings tend to stay up a while longer so busy folks can have a shot at getting quality ammo.

Keep an eye out for Fiocchi CPLRN, CCI CPLRN, and Federal Game Shok CPLRN.

I haven't found any Sigs on Davidson's.

Just got done cleaning it and I noticed that even with the safety on I can pull the trigger and the hammer drops in DA and SA. I didnt let the hammer fall completely but is this right?

Matt,
You already have conflicting stories about some of the ammo. That is normal and expected when it comes to 22LR. Whichever one you choose is no big deal, as long as it fires, cycles, and ejects. If it hiccups, try another. Stick with copper plated ammo, you have enough. If you switch to lead nosed, stay with it, because copper after lead may seal lead fouling, making it harder to clean out.

Sorry man I don't remember the procedures for the Mosquito. Thumb safety should keep the hammer from falling, in any pistol. Was the mag in? Look in the manual, field strip and reassemble again, or wait for someone else's advice.

tankwilson:

Those are all wrong - but if you really have to - in order:

1. CCI Mini-Mag HP
1a. CCI Blazer
2. The Federal Lighting

Skip the others...the CCI Mini-Mag HP goes first because it's plated.

The hammer hits a firing pin. Firing pin is disengaged when firing fin safety is on - hammer is disengaged when release is activated.

If you are paranoid like me - firing pin safety on - release hammer.

Read the Mosquito manual action test section...

Hey guys im gonna try the cci mini mag hp tomorrow. I did notice that my gun has the shorter spring installed. I thought the longer one was installed from the factory and recommended for the cci?
