Since I don't know anything about the gun would it be a good idea to change the recoil spring or should I leave well enough alone?

Anyone have opinions about using aluminum jacket ammo in this pistol? (I don't reload.)

For the range I still like my 1911 better, but for a $450 car/travel gun you can't beat it. I looked at a cheaper Ruger P97 also but it had some trigger creep and slide play, unlike the Sig.
If it's not a CPO, and you are not comfortable servicing your own pistols, SiG has this service package:


Detailed stripping and complete and thorough ultrasonic cleaning of the entire pistol. Professional safety inspection of critical components by factory
certified personnel. Replacement of springs prone to wear ( trigger bar spring, slide catch lever spring, recoil spring) and any needed small parts.
Then lubrication to factory standards, reassembly and function testing. ALSO INCLUDES THE FACTORY INSTALLATION OF SIGLITE NIGHT

As for "aluminum jacket" ammo...

Perhaps you are confusing that with Blazer "aluminum case" ammo?
