By one have any experience with it. Im looking for a 22 Lr to take to the range and my LGS has a used one for a good deal? It's not for SD or HD. Just a shooter.

We have one. You have to keep it REALLY clean and it only likes CCI mini mags. It is fun to shoot but not made very well. IMO Too finicky.

So would you buy it all over again or go with something else?

A buddy bought one, loaned it to me for breaking in. I'm taking it to the range tomorrow to put it through the paces with a variety of ammos to see what it likes. One thing I noticed already is that I'd hate to pay for spare mags on one at $40 a pop.

I'll report back tomorrow.

I recently looked at the mosquito because i liked the feel of it in my hand but everybody I talked too and everything I read about it said it was finicky with ammo. Whole point of me buying it was something easy and fun to shoot so I went with the ruger SR22. Cheaper and comes with 2 mags. Only had the ruger on the range once, but 500 rounds through it without a problem.

Yup that's what I've been recommending to everyone on the forum when they ask about a .22 that pistol is awesome!

Personally, I would go with the Ruger SR22 if I were to do it over again. Or I should have bought what I wanted...a Ruger Single Six. But my wife really wanted a pink gun. :) It is fun to shoot and pretty accurate.

I was thinking about getting that one but everyone that I talked to did not recommend it. I went with the M&P22 instead and love it.

I have a Mosquito that I like. I traded in a Walther P22 in for it. I enjoy shooting it and haven't had a problem with CCI mini-mags. I have been told that after running a few hundred CCI's through it, it will eat anything you like.

I do not like the magazine prices!

A lot of people like the M&P22. I haven't been able to use a Ruger SR22 yet.

Love those things!

Now, if you want to practice for competitions or firing the larger calibers, then the mechanics are different. I was looking for a pistol with a full slide, so I could rack it, clear jams, etc while I practiced and saved money over 9mm. That is how I ended up with a walther p22 then a sig mosquito.

Hello my friends, I suggest a Ruger 22/45



View attachment 9996
I loved my Ruger, but it was such a PAIT to reassemble that I just gave up on it last year and sold it. Great shooter, super accurate, ate everything I fed it, tons of fun, but a pain to clean it.

I shoot 100 rds of Remington Thunderbolt through my buddy's mosquito today, and no problems at all. I was running 10 yard head shots in fairly rapid fire without and problems. I ran out of time before I could try any other ammos, try pinpoint accuracy, or really stretch it's legs, but so far I'm very impressed.

It seems to be hit and miss with it. I know it's going to jam a few times. It's a 22. But it seems like it runs pretty good with good ammo. What do y'all think. I found a used one for around 250. Would you buy it
