My favorite .22 pistol is the Nomad and for rifle, it's the T-bolt.

Same place as your camera apparently.

Here's a 10/22 I've been messing around with. Stripped and bleached the birch then tru oiled it.



Afterwards, I started throwing parts at it until they stuck.



It turned out nicely balanced and fairly accurate.

Yep... H&R. Got my H&s mixed up. H&K does not make a revolver to my knowledge.

Sig Mosquito Update:


After about 600-700 rounds:
1. Still likes CCI mini mag 36 gr stuff, no jams or stove pipes, still hates the cheap stuff (blazer, etc). Oddly, didn't do well with the winchester hyper-velocity either, lots more "flash" and a couple stove pipes.



Target was at about 25-27 feet.
Top group is rapid fire (three rounds as quick as I could control within reason, the bottom two were done with the first aimed slow and carefully with two quick shots after) all were off hand, no rest or sandbags.
About 100 round total



Overall shoots well (as well as the shooter at this point). Like the size/fit. Hate the cost of an extra mag ($35) but that's a Sig.

This is a great thread! Sorry if this is 205, but I can't remember what's in all the posts (heck, I can barely remember what I had for lunch yesterday). One of my .22s is a Marlin Papoose w/ seven round magazine. When I go to Hardees I get a few of their milkshake straws. I'll fold about 3/4'' of one end of the straw back on itself and hot glue it down to seal it. Drop in seven MiniMags, fold and glue the other end, and I have waterproof magazine loads to throw in the Papoose case. Easy to open and load, don't take up much space, and no cardboard or plastic ammo cases to deal with. THANKS - Stan

That looks pretty decent. I had heard that the Mosquito was not a good shooter and it caused me to pass on one when they were on sale at a local shop. I'm sort of regretting that decision now.

I've had really good luck with Blazer in my 22/45, no malfunctions yet. What is it about the Mosquito that makes it so finicky? Somebody told me that the manual actually specs Mini Mags. I liked the look and the price isn't bad but it looks like my ammo concerns bear out. Really sharp little gun though and fit my hand great, much nicer than the Walther. Why can't they make like a 15 round mag for the Sig?

A lot of states and ranges limit mags to 10 rounds.

Sure but they make hi-cap magazines for everything except 22 pistols...

That's a pretty slick idea.

Blazers are a red headed stepchild that nobody wants to admit are a really good round, much less even give them a try. If you tell people you use them, they look at you like you got a third arm growing out of your head or nod like they know you are too fricking poor to shoot anything else.

They are filthy as hell and I usually wont shoot them in my Ruger pistol because I hate cleaning it (I use Rem Golden in that) but I think they are the best of the "cheap" .22 rounds. I ran them over the Chrony several years ago and they were very consistant and they shoot well in several of my guns so I use them. My NS522 likes them second best (PMC Scoremaster is the best but no longer available) so I shoot sporter class silhouette with it. If you want to psych someone out, let them see you take out a box when you are setting up then try to shoot second.
