Sig Sauer Mosquito
« on: February 09, 2018, 11:04:51 AM »
Greetings!
I am having a problem with my mosquito.  I load a round, fire, the round is ejected and a new one is loaded BUT when I pull the trigger it doesn't go off.  I can open the slide and rotate the round and sometimes it will fire and sometimes not. What is my problem?

With different brands of ammo, or all the same stuff?
Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

 1 When it does not fire ,is the round well struck?

2  Is their an indentation (from the firing pin) in the chamber rear(this causes a burr that can also interfere with firing)

3  Sometimes I find excessive dirt build up in front (bullet end) of the chamber from lack of proper cleaning that "CUSHIONS" the shell

4  Not enough lubrication

5  ammo poor or too thick at casing

6  Magazine bent and causing poor or incomplete feeding

7  May be weak hammer spring ?

Usually 3 - 6 - or 2  in that order

Why is it that the same people who use science to convince you of Global Warming,refuse DNA Science that proves you are male or female.

Government solves few problems that it does not first create.

Put a drop of oil on the top round of every full mag.

From talking to other shooters I have come to the conclusion that it is the ammo.  I plan on going out today and buy 50 rounds of CCI or CCI Stingers and when the weather warms a bit I will run some tests. After the ammo shortage not long ago I think that the manufacturers started bulk manufacturing but on a cheaper scale.
