I think the darn thing looks like 90% p22! SIG has a nice touch in sending out a target along with the pistol, probably from a mechanical rest, so you know what the gun is capable of.

Gentlemen,

I don't own a P22, yet, so I may be missing something. It is frequently stated that the Mosquito is so much like the P22. I don't see that. I think the Mosquito looks more like a Colt 1911 than it does a P22. ...and, the Mosquito is said (in the above-referenced article) to be of the "blow-back design", not recoil-operated, like the P22.

Unless I have to handle the Mosquito to feel the magic, I can't envision myself owning one. P22, yes. :t Sig Mosquito, no. :1t

Please enlighten me. :confused:

kasudyo,

I understand your analogy.

Slide, barrel, hammer, some springs, magazine, trigger, frame, etc., are what make any semi-automatic handgun.

I'm sorry, I still don't see any specific similarities.

Gentlemen,

Does anyone have a definitive answer to this question?:

Does the Mosquito have a blow-back action?

p.s.

Perhaps, I am muddling the terms "blow-back" & "recoil-operated". To me, they are different things. ...unless, I am confusing "blow-back" & "gas-operated". :confused:
