Having said that if you don't feel comfortable with a new American SIG there are plenty of German models to be had.
i was issued a 226R in .40 and have about 2,500 rds through it. It has always fired well, the problems I've had are with the internals rusting/pitting. Not sure what the deal was, stored it in the same room as my glocks and none of those have had an issue. Clean them on same schedule (once a month, plus after every time i shoot). Oh well, it sits on a shelf now.
