      Sig Sauer Mosquito and P226 CLASSIC .22

      I really like Sig Sauer Mosquito..... But I hear the trigger is really hard to get use to and has a hard trigger pull (maybe only on the double action pull) and that the trigger is gritty (although this may smooth out with some oil and/or after it is broken in). I have also heard that the mosquito has problems with FTF and FTE among other things... But I hear this is due to the ammo and/or not using the correct spring when using the bulk pack ammo's.
      I love the way the Sig Mosquito looks and really like the price of the gun... although paying $40+ for a Magazine is a little ridiculous!!!

      Next there is a Sig Sauer P226 CLASSIC .22 cal pistol (model # 226R-22-BAS) this
      is AWESOME...... but I really think it is out of my price range.... and I can not find out any info on the trigger.

      Can anyone comment on the TRIGGERS on both .22 cal pistols?

      Thank You

      just bought a mosquito a few weeks ago. The trigger puller is only hard on the first DA stroke, after that it reverts to SA asnd is quite easy, around 4lbs I believe, 12 lbs before the 1st stroke. I cant comment on the other piece as i've never owned one, but if the mosquito is any indication, it should be fun to shoot as well.

      I bought 550 rounds of Federal brand ammo for the mosquito, after 250 or so rounds, i have yet to experience any problems.

      i have a mosquito and simply love the little gun. it is fun to shoot and accurate for plinking at the farm and range. i have bought a scope mount and am looking for a good scope to extend my plinking past the 25 yard range. more fun!

      my mosquito does have a stong trigger pull, both single and double action. i have worked on the trigger based on some wonderful direction from the folks at the sig forum. i still have some work to get it where i think it should be, but since i am not a gunsmith, i am taking it carefull and slow.

      new, the mosquito will only cycle reliably using the CCI minimags. after 5 + boxes of the high cost rounds (is less than 10 cents a round considered high cost?) i figured i could put up with a few FTF or FTE. after all, i am at the range shooting paper targets, so clear the gun and keep shootin.

      i aslo like the saftey features of the sig, similar to a full sized sig, saftey, decocker and hammer fired. i don't recall any "accidental discharges" with this gun.

      I bought a Mosquito sport for my wife a while back and we both absolutely love it. My wife is very petit and has no problems shooting it. Hope that helps.

      Just spent first day at range with my new Mosquito. After picking it up I stripped, cleaned, and then lubed it with Mobil One synthetic. Racked the slide 200 times. Today - 200 rds CCI Minimags - fabulous; 100rds Winchester Super X high velocity - fabulous; 10rds each of: CCI Velocitors - fabulous; Federal Bulk Pack - great; Remington Golden Bullet - great; Winchester X bulk pack - horrible; Aguila - horrible. I love the little gun and am going to shoot loads of 22lr at the range from now on.

      Another vote for the Mosquito here. Reliability stopped being an issue once I got past the break-in; in the 600 rds since, there has not been a single incident that could be attributed to the gun itself. I feed my baby CCI Minimags exclusively, and clean her after every session of 100-200 rds.

      As for the trigger pull, I can confirm that DA is a bear, but SA was easy enough to get used to. I've gotten to the point where I can pepper the target with good 3" groups at 15 yds using iron sights only.

      Sorry I can't provide any insights into the P226/.22.

      There's my two-cents worth. Good luck on your choice.
