I wouldn't. The farthest i have broken down my mosquito is barrel off and the grips off. It's not very easy. I had the spring for the slide lock lever pop out and it took me about an 45min to find the spring and another hour to put it back in cause there isn't much room to put your hands in there.

I agree with CALI SHOT.

I took the mag release out once and almost lost a small spring. It was a pain to put together. So I just do the slide off the frame, clean the barrel, scrub with nylon brush. If needed, I flush the frame with MPro-7, wipe dry then drip a small amount of oil in the hammer/trigger mech before lubing the rails.

Had mine since '07 and put a lot of rounds through it and it eats Blazer without a bobble. Aint broke, don't fix.

yea getting that slide release lever spring back in was a ****... I had to send it back to sig, they were nice and fixed it and cleaned the gun free of charge, even after the 2 year warranty...

I would pull off the wings and then use a real small cutting tool to open up the thorax and remove the guts. I would not eat it though because you do not know who's blood it may have sucked.
