Nice Hamp

How do you like the Sig Mosquito? What is the overall height/length of it?

The sig is the pickiest gun I have ever met, I am still looking for an ammo that it likes, I bought it new for my kid's to shoot last summer but when we went out the goddam sig kept jamming (remington ammo) so I had to surrender my ruger to the kid's and I was religated to loading 9mm mags for THEM, BULLSHIT! (I currently only have one mag).

The sig is just a little smaller than my ruger but it is surprisingly heavier it is 7" long by 5" tall.

SIG Mosquito

Many .22 semiautos are picky and finicky about ammo. I'd suggest that you buy a box of every .22 ammo you can find and go back to the range. That will tell you if it's the gun (if it jams with everything), or the Remington ammo you had. If what you had was Yellow Jackets, they have feeding problems in some guns because of the bullet design. This will also tell you which ammo groups the best in your gun (supposing you get proper functioning). Does the SIG manual have any recommendations as to the type of ammo you should use?

The ammo is rem. 22 viper (still have 200 rds) I will do just as you say and buy different types and see what works best. My ruger will digest anything that you feed it, the manuel has no suggestions on ammo beyond the obvious 22lr.

the P-22 loves them, and as you said, like all 22's is finicky about lead, which is a shame as im cheap.. i have to tap rack every other round if im shooting lead, and almost never a problem loading jacketed, and for some odd reason NEVER a problem with remeys yellow jacket stuff..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

have the same bullet profile, SWC. Try something round nosed, so there (theoretically) won't be anything to hang up on the feed ramp. The mechanical design and geometry of the pistol may also have something to do with the feed problem.

I prefer "trial and error" it is more fun that way and it gives us an excuse to get out of the house.

The manual that came with my Mosquito said CCI Mini mags, the same ammo they use to test fire it. Ive used alot of different kinds and cci mini mags dont jam or misfire one bit. All the other ammunition is dirty and wont cycle correctly.

I want to buy my wife a "Skeeter" for her birthday (even though I didn't get MINE" but at least we'll be able to go to the range together. I'm very interested in everything said about the .22 auto's
