    I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on them. Mainly feeding issues. Hopefully an owner will come along and state their opinion.

    Yea I've heard a few mixed reviews with the early models. Dunno about the newer ones. I'm mostly used to single action .45. But think it might be a fun lil gun.

    I've had one for a year. I love it. Like most 22s you'll get some mis fires but Besides that, great gun.

    Nice, thanks for the info. Did you guys use any certain brand of high grade ammo like cci mini mags? Or just bulk cheap ammo and still worked fine?

    i have one of the first models to come out.

    it will not cycle to pick up the next round outta the magazine with bulk federal or winchester rounds. it only likes HV rounds, it shoots remington golden bullets well, and likes cci mini-mags, and stingers. the cci's have a heavy wax coating on them that the lil pistol does not like tho.........especially in the heat of the summer.

    i've tried both springs, and it still will not cycle correctly with the non-HV rounds.

    shoots really well, but don't drop it on it's sight.........they are a plastic-type material. mine fell outta my truck, and bent the rear dovetail. rear sight has an adjustment screw to dial it in. comes with front sight, and 2 replaceable ones.............in all, tall, medium, and short.

    Most of the time I use CCI mini mags but I also use cheap bulk ammo as well.

    We shot almost all Remington bulk golden bullets. He has many mags(around 8) and we used them all (they all worked fine). It was more accurate than I expected. If they all shot like his, they would be great guns. I have heard many bad reviews for them but his is excellent.

    its shoots good, but mine is very picky on ammo. it loves CCI mini mags. had big trouble with federal bulk, and winchester. its fun to shoot though.

    LOVE mine. Shoots great as long as you use 40 grain ammo, personally use blazers ammo. I have a two toner that is PRETTY! Very fun plinker!

    I love Sig's but I think the M&P 22 is a better pistol, I however own neither but have shot the M&P.

    I bought mine new. Ran two mags of CCI through it first, after cleaning the factory schmutz out of it. I've run quite a few brands through it with no repetitive snafus.

    Winchester Xpert HP
    Winchester Hv
    CCI minimags
    Remington golden bullet
    Remington viper
    Remington subsonic
    Aguila supersniper
    Federal champion
    federal lightning

    Along with some random crap from the bottom of an auction box.

    My father in law has one. It will only fire CCI mini mags. Jams on everything else. It's a sweet little pistol but useless because its way too ammo finicky. Terribly unreliable.

    I've got an older one. It sucks out loud.

    A friend has a newer one. It's flawless.

    Good little pistol. Some of them don't feed the K-Mart blue light special ammo at first.

    Mine wouldn't. But after a few bricks of Remingtons and Stingers for break in, it will feed anything.

    Remember that any rimfire pistol, even $5000 custom built target jobs will misfire, or FTF once in a while. That's just the nature of rimfire.

    Had mine for just about a year. HAd problems with bulk ammo and even with CCI MiniMags had a 5-10% failure rate. Told sig they had me send it to them. They reamed out the breach end of the bbl and now maybe 1 FTE or less per hundred. No charge from Sig and they covered shipping cost both ways.
