    Looking at getting the sig mosquito I was wondering if they worked out all the kinks in the newer ones

    Maybe they've gotten better. I hope so. But I very rarely hear anything positive about the Mosquito.

    Better off with a Ruger SR22, Walther P22, or S&W M&P 22 in similar styles. Or a Ruger or Browning target pistol. Or (if you want a Sig) one of the P220/226/229 "X-change" kits.

    By most accounts the Mosquito continues to be a finicky headache of a firearm.

    I have one, and I really really like it.I have had it for about 10 months. It has been pretty much trouble free, the only thing it doesnt like is the Federal bulk pack. I ran about 500 rounds of CCI mini mags through it for break in, as recommended. Now I have switched to the Federal Auto Match, which is much cheaper then the mini mags. All in all the feel of the gun is fantastic and I shoot a box of the Auto Match(325 rds) every time I take it to the range without problems.

    Its a 500 rd break-in and can be ammo picky.. I do like it though. Its a solid feel and good understudy for the 226-229!

    There must be something in the water if two Rhode Islanders like this gun in the same post!

    My Mosquito isn't problematic at all, unless, I shoot ammo other than CCI Mini Mags or Remington Thunderbolts. It shoots these with no malfunctions what soever. I has shot them well since I got the gun, no "break-in" period required on mine. I am going to trade it in on a revolver of some sort though. I just don't like the fact that the slide is made of zinc alloy, and it isn't very accurate.

    I hear mixed feelings about it but I can't talk because I have never shot one...It's a cool looking little gun though.

    I have a Sig Mosquito and I have ran into a few issues with different ammo. Nothing too major, but when you find the correct ammo that will work great, it is a wonderful shooter.

    A rail on a 1911, not in my safe. Lol.

    I do own a mosquito, have had it since February. Have only had an issue with FTF after shooting two to three hundred rounds at the range. Dropped the bore snake in and pulled it through once and was back shooting in no time. It feeds all the brands of ammo I have tried so far, cci mini mags, federal, and remingtons, but the mini mags were more accurate.

    The only people who really like the SIG Mosquito is UPS and Fed X. They have made a fortune on returning these for repair.:eek:

    They send the trouble free guns to Rhode Island to defend against the raging liberals .
