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.

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...
