Hello everyone! Just wanted to update you on a problem I had posted in some other threads about my 9mm SIG P229 pistol (bought brand new in 2009) Seems I was having some failure to feeds, failure to ejects, and the gun wasn't going into "slide lock" after the last round was fired. Turns out it was all MY fault I believe, not the wrong ammo, not the gun, but me. While cleaning the mags, I had accidentally put the mag springs in REVERSE, or upside down...and they were not pushing the followers up high enough to engage the slide lock. I believe the same thing was causing the FTF's etc. With that aside, it would appear my SIG is flawless....HOWEVER, I do have to mention that after firing about 300 rds through it, I noticed that there was some significant wear in the frame rail (the right side), where the black SIG finish has been worn down to bare metal....about 1 1/2 inches long. Not sure if this is normal? If it is, then my P226 has been flawless, it was me, that was not.
