I'm not understanding why your getting so much guff about the slide lock issue. Yes, you might be jacking the slide lock; I doubt it. The reason I don't think so is the repetitive nature of the issue and you would recognize the problem since you're not a rookie.
Wasn't giving him "guff".... just going on the probability and likelihood of real world issues. Like I said, most guys won't admit the POSSIBILITY of shooter errors. Granted it could be wildly out of spec factory ammo OR a horribly fitted SS, but other issues would have arisen. From what I've seen, it's not necessarily repetitive after each shot either. Happens a LOT from the classes I've been in from guys that shoot thumbs forward on Glocks and transfer to 1911s.

I'm not a 1911 armor so the folks that obviously are don't seem to think the issue is big. All I can say is I've never had an issue like in your picture and it is something I would also be distressed over.
Don't need to be a "1911 armorer" to catch a loose plunger tube once and awhile.

Ok,......that's a new one for me. I can understand this being an issue
if it happened all the time. Buy occasionally,........it's the shooter's input.

You can easily replace that tube if you like, I am sure Sig will as well.

Send it back to Sig. My 1911 Scorpion has been perfect. The factory mags didn't work for me either. I got come CMC Shooting Stars. Factory mags I only use for the range. 1911s are mag sensitive, even within the same brand/line.

Get yourself one of these and you can fix it in about 5 minutes after it shows up in the mail. Every 1911 owner should have one as it makes plunger tube stake issues a non-issue.

Hope your Glock does not chuck brass in your face when you need to count on it.
Contact Sig,.....they will make it right.
Better the gun fire and you run the risk of a little irritation as you defend yourself than spend the last few seconds of your like wondering why your safety isn't working.
