Anyone own or has anyone shot a Sig mosquito? I looked at a few at a gun show today and am considering buying one. Thoughts?

Never owned one. My old pal manages a large LGS. They will no longer carry the Mosquito. Just too many returns for repair. The GSG SIG 1911 .22 is a real fun can killer.:cool:

My son has one that he shoots ALOT. It works great. Maybe it is the only one that does but I have shot his and it is a fine gun.

ive got one. it functions decently but its not that great. grip is comfy in the hand but thats its only redeeming factor. trigger is very horrid. some have reported serious safety issues with kabooms.

i would say skip it as there are so many other better guns out there. like the ruger sr22 and mk3 beretta neos (new production) browning buckmark sig 1911-22 etc

Have one and enjoy it but only after I sent it Back to Sig (at their expense) and had the breech end of the barrel reamed. Now it works perfectly Its a great starter gun if you want to move up to a P236 b

Correction: should read "if you want to move up to a P226

I have no experience but have heard WAYYYYYY to many bad things about this gun and for Sig prices that's just WAYYYYY beyond unacceptable to me! I would stay away from this gun like the plague. Hell, I wouldn't pay anything more than 200 for any 22lr pistol! It's a Junk round, comparatively, from handguns, and barely more than a plink-worthy one from rifles.

Considering that the .22 has been around for over 150 years, considering it is the most popular round sold world wide and considering the advances made in .22 from companies like CCI over the years, calling it a "junk round" is a wee bit harsh..

Like I said, comparatively, in a handgun... I stick very firmly to my previous statement. Not harsh, accurate.

Those "stats" are incompetent.

Who doesn't buy a lot of what's cheap?

Its cheap fire a reason, Rimfire junk, again comparatively.

I love my 22, we all do, but not because it's great quality, reliable and top performing from a pistol. Come on man, be honest with yourself and everyone else.

I've had one for a couple of years. Love it. I've also read about how many people have had issues with them. I followed the instructions, ran it wet and haven't had any issues with it. Mine does only like the CCI mini mags. The earlier models had issues, but I think they got the bugs worked out of them.

That's good news. It is many a case with many a manufacturer where the first generations or two had issues which were later fixed. So perhaps some simple diligence in ensuring you get a late model will see you with a quality piece!

I hear the Ruger sr22 is much better than the sig. If you want that style. I was looking for a 22 and bought the gsg 922. I love it.

A 22 lr is a very good caliber for small game and for cheap trigger therapy, the 22LR is very often someone's first gun, they have limitless uses. A 22 can also be used at relatively long distances for those that like target shooting, but can't afford high powered ammo.

No, they don't make good CCW guns, but to write the caliber off completely for not being a good defensive round is a bit much. It's like saying a 45 is useless because you could have a 300 Win Mag

Two of my good friends have Mosquitos. Had them for a couple of years now, with no complaints.
