    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.

    :dunno:

    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)

    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.

    Depends on where I am.
    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...
