Thanks for posting. What does leaving a huge drag on the primer mean! Just trying to understand the perceived issue.

There's a steel and soon titanium aftermarket firing pin available. One should not have to purchase one to prevent possible breakage. Sig needs to fix it.
My Colt Defender in 45acp doesn't leave drag marks.
Normal for a revolver. Not a lot of 500S&W semiautos.
Well until people start holding Sig accountable, they will keep introducing unfinished junk into the market...
Haha. Sig=entertainment for me.
Thanks for sharing the information.
What is a "dead trigger" and how does that relate (if it does) to the firing pin drag?
Glock...the standard that all must compare to.
Why fool round with anything else OP??? Do you have to reinvent the wheel only to die for your troubles?
Normal for a revolver? I've never seen that on any of my revolvers and the have countless rounds through them.
Well, some degree of "FP wipe" isn't considered an issue by some makers, at least in some models. I remember the first time I asked someone in Ruger's Prescott plant about it, in an early KP-90, and I was told it was considered normal, as long as it wasn't excessive, or obviously causing a problem.
If it's a symptom of a particular pistol unlocking before pressure has sufficiently dropped, I'd be contacting the company, looking for recoil spring assembly problem, etc. Ditto looking for signs of over pressure ammo, too.
I haven't attended the SIG 320 armorer class, let alone the 365 class, so I can't pretend to have any official insight into this brand new model. A couple other guys have been keeping up on SIG models and updates, and one of our "gun-a-week" instructors has recently picked up a 365, so I'll have to keep an ear out.
Personally, as both a firearms instructor and armorer of some years experience, unless I've been tasked with participating in a T&E effort, I've come to shy away from buying anyone's brand new pistol design until it's been in both the general public's hands, and the hands of working cops, for at least a year. I grew to really dislike being a Beta tester.
I'll stick with the Kahr PM9 and Glock 42/43.
,,,and to think I was a paycheck away from acquiring one,,,
I’m waiting for SIG America apologists to flock in and say how other brands have lemons too.
OK, so the "dead trigger" and the firing pin drag/broken FP are two (2) separate issues?
Oh boy! As I posted in the other thread, I'm glad I have about another 18 months before I need to decide going forward whether to CCW full time my G26 or another plastic single stack.
