The Sig Sauer Mosquito is a popular 22 Caliber semi auto handgun because it is available in an extended threaded barrel for a silencer and there are several popular silencer companies such as AAC and Gemtech that make suppressors for the Sig Mosquito 22 Caliber Handgun.
If you are planning to purchase one of these I highly recommend the extended barrel.
This firearm can be frustrating and people who own the Mosquito either love them or hate them. Many of these Sig Mosquitos have a tenancy to jam, so take it to a gunsmith and get in chamfered and polish at the barrel feed. I do not recommend you doing this yourself. Also you may want the gunsmith to hone the burs off the magazine head because some of these hangup when loading, and it will also help to prevent jamming.

Firearm Forum Question: How to Store Your Rifle Bolt

Ask A Firearms Question:
Can you tell me if there is a safe way to store my Rifle Bolt?
Thank you Karl Rostov

Typical Old White Athletic Sock ....
Typical Rifle Bolt ....


Answer:
Blog Administrator -
The least expensive and very effective method to store your Rifle Bolt is to use a clean white old athletic sock.
See my homemade video and instructions below.









Storing your Rifle Bolt:
I have found that one of the best methods is to use a man's old white athletic sock.
Follow these simple guidelines:
1) Make sure the Sock is White, the color in a sock can cause damage to the bolt.
2) Make sure the White Sock is washed and cleaned. Sweat from a dirty sock could cause rust.
3) Make sure the sock is big enough to completely hold the rifle bolt.
4) Remove the Rifle Bolt from the firearm.
5) Place the bolt in the clean sock.
6) Place the rifle in the gun case and the bolt next to the rifle, close the case.
This method is very good for Hunting ad Military Rifles especially when using a soft rifle case. Often times the rifle bolt causes a bulge in the soft style rifle case, or prevents a hard case from closing because the rifle bolt handle sticks up in the air.
When storing firearms, some people like to keep the rifle bolts stored separately from the firearms in the event of theft. A rifle isn't much good without the bolt. I know someone who stores their firearms in a Gun Safe and all their rifle bolts in a small floor safe in another part of the house.

Firearm Forum Question: How to Clean Your Firearm from Corrosive Ammo

Ask A Firearms Question:
Is there a way to properly clean a firearm without damaging it after shooting Corrosive Ammo?
Thank you Ragu Willy

Use Windex with Ammonia as a pre-cleaning solution ...
If the Corrosion is severe, then mix 1 part ammonia to 2 parts of water ....

Answer:
Blog Administrator -
If your firearm is corroded from Military Surplus Ammo or Ammo that has been Coated with either a Polymer Coating or Lacquer, the best method is to pre-clean it with Windex containing Ammonia immediately after shooting. If it is heavily corroded try the Windex method first and if it does not remove all the corrosion then mix your own ammonia solution using any Ammonia with tap water, 1 part ammonia to 2 parts water. Always mix this in a glass measuring cup.

Follow these simple steps for a complete firearm cleaning to remove corrosion:
1) Spray the Windex solution onto a wire brush, run it through the barrel twice.
2) Run a dray patch cloth through the barrel.
3) Now run a wet patch with Windex solution.
4) Run dry patches until the cloth is near clean.
5) Now clean the firearm as you normally would.
Notes:
a) Using a soft cloth spray on some Windex and wipe the breach and slide areas, also the magazine.
b) Wipe off with a dry cloth.
c) Apply lubricant to all areas.

Important Note: This method is not for removing rust.
