Has anyone fired, touched, seen or read a review on the new Mosquito? It looks interesting.

I have 6 .22 pistols and can't justify another one unless it is something very unique. I think the people who already have SIG's will be attracted to the Mosquito. I don't think the barrel is threaded like the P22 to accept a suppressor, which rules it out for me.

Actually, I read an article somewhere stating that they were going to sell a threaded barrel manufactured by them for the mosquito.

I too am interested in this pistol. Anyone????

Not out yet...

Everyone at sigforum.com is waiting in anticipation.
It ought to be a nicer quality gun than the P22 (and should be for the estimated higher price).

It would make a nice companion to my 228.

4.4lb SA trigger pull...ouch

The only negative I see in the Mosquito is the SA trigger pull. 4.4lbs (2Kilos) is awfully heavy for a .22 in this price range. I'm sure it's for liability reasons, but hopefully the springs can be changed relativly easy or a gunsmith can adjust it fairly inexpensively.

The Mosquito was obviously designed to feel and look like the centerfire Sigs in operation allowing cheaper practice with the 22lr. The centerfire Sigs are usually rated at 4.4lbs trigger pull. In my thinking that is why the Mosquito also has the 4.4lb trigger.

The Mosquito was not designed to be a bullseye 22. It does not even have adjustable sights. Again , just like the centerfire Sigs. The pistol should have a lot of appeal to current Sig owners.

the nice thing about my particular 220 is that it is dead on with the stock sites
no matter what ammo I feed through it

452 Shooter,
I understand your point, but I was thinking about for a younger shooter. I just don't like the Trailside and my son would love to have a pistol "similar" to dad's P239. The grips would probably still be too large for small hands.

The grips may be smaller than you think as the gun is smaller than a centerfire Sig.

Go to www.sigforum.com. for more info.

Are there Sig-specific .22 conversion kits? That would seem a better solution if the issue is cheaper practice with a duty pistol. Anyone of such a thing?

It will be on display at the NRA show. It was also at the SHOT show. The zinc slide is a real turn off for me. Sig is better than this.
