I'm looking forward to your review on the squito...I know several people who have them and they all have strong opinions. SnS

Now after I bought it I have read a few people are having feeding issues but I was told it needs to be broken in with cci mini mags .I held it in the gun shop and it felt good and felt like a full size center fire handgun .Since it was a SIG I just figured it would be fine. I held the walters but the grips are to short I didn't like them.If it acts up I am sure the sig forums will be able to help me fix it.A little ramp polish should help to I will wait and see first I don't want to jump ito conclusions.I wanted a 22 semi auto for awhile now my xd-40 is just to darn expensive to plink with.

Congrats, hope you like it.I have one and like it very much. But this gun is very picky on ammo, I only use federal bulk which is fine for my gun, only have few FTF orFTE, but I heard a lot of people have HUGE problem with their gun, it;s kind of love or hate relation.You're right about sig forums , there are ton of info about this gun, there is a guy with screen name "mississippidave" know this gun inside and out, check him out. Two things I've learned about is to LIGHTLY oil ammo and polish the feed ramp, that seems take care of the FTF problem.Good luck with your baby.

The opinions have all been related to the feeding "issue." If you can figure it out, I'd share the remedy with others. :smiley-funny-post-sign: SnS

I've got a P220 and a Mosquito and love them both! My P220 shoots flawless, and is my CCW gun (Utah License). My Mosquito does have occasional FTF issues though - usually it's one click-no-bang round out of each magazine. Had one failure to feed once. I've only got a few hundred rounds of CCI Mini Mags through it though, so it should break in with use. We also have the option of sending our Mosquitos to GrayGuns for their Mosquito Action Package:Mosquito Action Package (MAP) – $185Grayguns is now offering Function, Feed and Reliability work on the Sig Sauer Mosquito pistol. This new package includes the following:Best Grade Feed and Reliability workDA/SA trigger pull clean upTest Firing and Sight regulationTo date, we’ve been able to get every Mosquito we’ve worked on to function as near to perfect as possible with CCI Mini Mag ammunition.

 If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

Very bad ejection problems .I am not using cci mini mag and those are the ones needed to break it in.I will find some mini mags if it still has problems I will trade it back to the gun shop. It will be just a lessen learned.:signs653wf:

Sorry to hear this.Try federal bulk, that's what I use. I was at range yesterday and fired a box of 525 rounds, there were couple of FTFs, but no FTEs at all. Also swtich the recoil spring ( it should come with 2 springs), may be that will help.

You shouldn't need to oil your ammo, but you might need to polish the chamber or remove burrs from the rear end of the chamber.

It could be the mag, I heard the polymer mag is better than the metal one. Call Sig customer service and may be they can send you a polymer mag.

My wife got me a P220 in .45 caliber for my 50th birthday. Right out of the box it out shot my Colt 1911 that I had accurized by Terry Tussey. I love the Sig and I wish you the best with yours too. Contact Sig and they should get you squared away. I can't imagine them not taking good care of their customers. You deserve to be satisfied with your gun's performance. It may need a tweak here and there. They'll know what to do. Don't take a loss on it.

Ok I bought some federal 40 gr vital shock the Sig mosquito shot great no problems at all.Anything under 40 grs does not recoil the gun enough for the slide to cycle completely that's why I had failure to grab a round off the mag.I am sure I can rabbit hunt with it this cotton tail season.
