I'm not a Sig owner with a Sig question

    I have report of a Sig P220 and P220 Elite which had a failures to fire, and the owner reported he was not able to cycle the slide during remedial action. He declares he had to drop the mag to cycle the action.


    This a Sig thing? They exhibit a reluctance to cycle in certain situations? I don't own one so I dunno.

    Please opine.

    (eta: I just thought it could've been an ammo issue, presume not at the moment)

  2. sounds like he had to drop the magazine to clear a jam...double feed or failure to extract/eject???...not a SiG specific problem and a rarer problem at that...

    I own two P-220's. More info is needed as to what his exact problem was.

    Sounds like operator error shooting reloads.

    Never had any issues with mine...

    Thanks for the replies. I know I didn't give a lot of info, but I gave all the info I had.

    I learned it was factory Winchester ammo so that rules out reloads.
    It wasn't a double feed- it feed properly, just went click and the report of stuck slide.

    Didn't make sense, so I went to Sig owners for insight.

    At this time I think it was operator error.

    Any chance there is a safety he accidentally engaged which did basically what was described?

    Just because it's factory ammo, doesn't mean it's not a bad round.

    Sounds like he ran the gun out of ammo and did not know

    No. There is no safety. Just a decocker...
