    Sig Mosquito, my range experience

    I would have been better off throwing the gun at the target to hit it. In all fairness, the gun was accurate, when the POS was capable of firing. I may be being a bit harsh, and should give the gun another 250 rounds to break in.
    The first 250 rounds through it have been horrible; FTE, feeding failures, if something can go wrong with a gun, the mosquito will prove it.
    It was so bad I almost put it out on the range to shoot it with the Walther.
    I was using high velocity, high quality ammo. I'd recommend spending your $400.00 on something better.

    That has been my experience with every .22 auto.

    Sorry to hear the experience. All I could say is try another ammo, but it sounds like you've tried some good ammo. If I were you, I'd try to get most of your money back and purchase a Ruger MK Series. Good luck and thanks for the report.

    I'm going to give it 1 more chance at the range on Wednesday, if it fails, Ruger here I come. I'll keep you posted. I wish I could take a video of it, unfortunately the range has a no camera policy.

    Wow, I've never heard of a no camera policy, but I guess I've never really wanted to film either. Be sure to let us know as I'm interested to hear and I'm sure others are as well. Good luck!

    They can be as picky about ammo as my Walther P22. Run another 2-300 rounds through it and try different brands. My P22 will now function without fail using Remington and Remington Sub-Sonic, but won't get through a magazine with some other brands, especially high-velocity stuff.

    On the other hand, if you're going to throw it away, throw it my way

    i would definitely run a few more rounds through it. I go shooting w/ my neighbor all the time, and he almost always brings his mosquito, and neither of us has ever had any problems.

    what spring do you have in it? From the research I have been doing the softer of the 2 is the way to go. The other thing that has been stated is the use if cci minimags. Supposedly these two items clear up 99% of the problems. A lot of people have said that after 500+ rounds they have been able to go to cheaper ammo with good results. This may be something you are already trying so sorry if this is a repeat. Also you could check the forums on rimfirecentral.com, the people are really helpful.

    +1 to Mr. JT. I have a Mosquito that we have shot @ 500 rds through. No problems at all with the recommended ammo - CCI Mini Mag. However, I had some older Remington hp that would cause FTE fairly often. The other issue is to watch your grip with your support hand. If your thumb rides the slide and places pressure on it, there will be malfunctions.

    Overall, I've found the Sig to be a nice shooting gun.

    OK, bit of an update. I have been shooting mini mags from the start, I still have some FTF issues, but it is a rimfire .22. The gun is very accurate, and with roughly 1600rds through it, it's behavior has been getting better with each mag. Hopefully it will keep going strong.
    Thanks,
    Bri
