I was running the gas system on (-) so I swapped it to the (+) and fired the...

    I took my used P232 to the range today for the first time. I loaded each of the two magazines with 7 rounds of American Eagle 380. I loaded the magazine and racked the first round into the chamber. No problems. However, after firing the first round, the 2nd round failed to feed. It got...
  10. P290 feed problem

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    I purchased a P290 (not the RS, didn't know the difference beforehand) on Monday. I took it to the range Tuesday and put 50 rounds through it. The gun fired great. Very accurate, no misfires, no stovepipes. The problem I'm having is loading that first round into the chamber. Often the cartridge...
