GSG Firefly

I recently purchased one for my nephew to replace the Sig mosquito I gave him. The Mosquito extractor broke. The GSG Firefly appears to be the exact same firearm. It is just a plinker but if it satisfies my nephew it will work. I tried to give him a MKIII 22/45 but he preferred the Firefly.

I picked up one for my kids, 12 and 10, it fits their hands. I shot 50 rounds through it the other day. Need to get it sighted in. Seems decent.

I have a Sig Mosquito which is the same as the Firefly. GSG manufactured for Sig.
I've had no problems with mine. I love shooting it and use it as a carry gun at times.
I only use HV roundnose and have had no issues. I recommend using a quality ammo.
I like the fact that it has a hammer I can cock back if I so choose.
I put a grip sleeve on mine and it fits my hand nicely.
Has a nice weight to it. Accuracy is spot on.

Just remember to take the safety off before firing..it's a hammer block...

I once forgot the safety at the range and couldn't figure out why I was getting fail to fires.....3 times I dropped the mag and cleared it...DOH!

Once I realized what was going on I did a 2 mag dump out of anger at myself...

Good to hear. Any solution for the tremendous double action trigger pull?

I guess I'm not so sensitive to the trigger.
Like I said. I most times will cock the hammer first and shoot it in SA.
here is some info I was given on another forum.

" the gritty trigger can be resolved by polishing the trigger transfer bar. You'll have to completely disassemble the pistol to get to it. The bar is just a stamped steel part with lots of rough edges and rough surface, and it runs up against the frame innards. Chamfer the rough edges and polish the whole thing.

The trigger can also be lightened a pound or so by removing a small brass bushing from the base of the hammer spring, HOWEVER you may get light primer strikes with some ammo."
