    with the safety on, it won't strike the firing pin. I've tested it repeatedly with my mosquito & a spent casing.

    Its not the firing pin thats the problem so much as the firing pin striking the edge of the chamber deforming it to where you need to have it reamed out with rimfire rounds. Personally I wouldn't dry fire any .22lr.

    I have no idea about the mosquito specifically, just the general danger in most rimfires.

    internal locking device, there is a key that came with your mosquito. it turns a little bar on the gun, I'd have to take a look when I get home to tell you where, and when that bar is turned, the gun doesn't work.

    As for dry-firing, when the safety is on, the hammer will drop, but the firing pin is not struck. There is no chance of the firing pin striking the breech on a dry fire with the safety on.

    As for the DA pull, make sure the mag was in the gun, because of the magazine disconnect safety, but other than that, no idea.

    The owner's manual for my 10/22 recommends dry firing to familiarize the shooter with the trigger pull.

    So, in conclusion, to the original poster:

    No. On the bottom of the grip there is a little hole, you can see it even when the magazine is in. there is a small bar (best word I can use to describe it) in there. If you take the "key" (came on a little keyring, it's a cylindrical piece of plastic with a U shape cut into one end) and put it in there, push down, and turn it 90 degrees, the hammer won't cock back.

    Put the "key" back in the hole, turn 90 degrees, and you'll see the bar is right up against the hole again. hammer should cock back again. Look in the owners manual, it's all described in there..
