View Full Version : Sig C3 slide problem

03-12-2011, 16:16
Hello everybody newbie here. Got a sig c3 about a month ago. I put 300 rounds thru it and had about half a dozen jams and slide didn't lock back after emptying clip ( both clips) happened twice so far. Is this part of the breaking in of the gun. Or is it a problem that I need to call sig?

Do you have any other mags you can try? Could be magazine related.

A. Keep firing about 200 more and if the problem persists........
B. Try new mags
C. If you call Sig and the F---king sh-tless customer service they may say its break in, the mag, ammo or you. I did have a few guns that were like this that after a few hundred rounds ran fine but your at 300 already. Try 200 more.
D. Call Sig and maybe you get someone nice and they will pay for all the shipping for warranty work like Springfield did for me.

Good Luck :wavey:

Chip Power 10's or the Wilson 47's, even if at the end of the day its not the mags, these are still the best 1911 mags.
