    Having trouble with a Sig Mosquito in .22. What would be a better choice of a .22 semi-auto handgun?

    For the mosquito you basically have to use CCI minimags and work that spring in. Theyre notorious for having problems. Buy the sig 1911-22. Youll be so tickled with it you wont know what to do with yourself.

    The M-22 ammo is jamming it

    I really like my Colt Govt. Model 1911 lr22. It's reasonably priced as well. Only problem I've had with it was using cheap Federal bulk ammo. I'll never buy that crap again.

    The CCI ammo never gave me any issues.

    I've had two mosquitos. A digital camo and all black. Put the light spring in each and have no problems. Running a YHM MITE and have no problems with rem subsonic, Aquila super sniper, rem golden bullet, win xpert HP, win xpert hv, fed champion.

    I used to have a P22 that never gave me any troubles.


    Reckon I'm just lucky.

    when it gets dirty, mine does start to stove-pipe a few, but nothin else.

    i don't know M-22 ammo. subsonic, HV, Std-Vel?

    the lighter spring definitely helps, but mine still won't cycle with Federals, Winchesters, Eleys, or the like.

    the ONLY reliable thing i can get it to shoot is: basically all CCI rounds and Remington Golden Bullet. that's the only luck i've had.

    Lotsa small .22s are ammo sensitive. Try ammo it likes, and shoot a couple of bricks for thorough break in.

    I think you'll love it after that.

    One thing I've noticed with my Mosquito is with FTE there appears to be a bit of grit in the breech end of the barrel. I'm wondering if lightly polishing it would solve the problem. Anyone have any thoughts in this?
