    I went to the shop to buy one, but once I held it, it's waaay too small for me. I still may end up with one, but it gave me second thoughts. Now I'm considering a conversion slide for a glock???

    didn't really care for it. Most of the .22LR handguns are different from normal handguns, imo. I just want a standard sized/styled handgun chambered in .22LR.

    Basically I want a "jumbo" version of the P22.

    the mosquito was the closest I found to a "normal" handgun in .22lr (without using a conversion kit)... I think it's like 90%(?) the size of a P226...at least, thats if my memory is right from when I saw the first materials on it.



    Yeah, read the PDF on it...90% the size of a 226

    The p22 is light enough to have some snap and pop left in it. It's not a target gun that just goes click and doesnt move. Imo thats what makes it worth it to me.

    yeah, comes in the box...is a little rod that you preinsert into the slide to hold the spring in position until you reassemble

    i have three p22's, whenever i get off my lazy ass and do a .22lr G19 or 1911 i will sell em

    I like the mosquito since it's bigger then a p22 and so far mine runs flawless on cheap Federal bulk packs.
