    i just bought my first sig. a p229r. i have a glock 23, 27 and a kahr pm9.

    with the sig being the first gun w/ an external hammer fired action, i have a question about it. i have heard that the sig guns are extremely reliable, so forgive me if it sounds stupid...

    if debris such as mud, sand, foreign object, etc gets into the hammer area. can it fail to fire? i was just wondering about the reliablility of having an hammer fired vs a striker fire... whatever term you like to use for it.

    SIG Sauer pistols are battle proven the world over from the British SAS to the US Navy SEALS. They pass torture tests very well in military/LE trials. I would not worry about it. You would intentionally have to stuff the hammer area to get it not to work. Bill

    What did combat troops carry prior to 1985?

    Yeah, and what would these guys be carrying in combat for the last 100 years in freezing snow in Europe, deserts of North Africa and the jungles in the Far East...

    if it weren't for the 1911; the first viable semi-automatic combat weapon.
