  1. M11-A1 and Winchester White Box 115gr 9mm

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    I took my new M11-A1 to the range for the first time yesterday and on the first 20 rounds had 4 FTF rounds plus 2 FTE using WWB 115gr 9mm. I was concerned that this was the pistol's fault since it was new and not broken in. I examined the primers on the faulty rounds and they had good solid...
  2. MPX Suppressed: FTF

    New Member Introductions
    I'm a Sig man for 30 years but have only had my MPX (Gen 2) for the past 2 years. When I got an AAC Ty-Rant for my rig I started experimenting with sub-sonic rounds. I've tried all 6 of the 'major brands' and conclude that Emcon 147 gr. TMJ is the most reliable - BUT, it will also give me a FTF...
  3. New member, first time SIG owner, prob with new P320 X-VTac

    P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    Hey all, Just bought my first Sig, a new P320 X-Vtac. The date on the box seems to indicate it was made in Jan, 2018. Anyway, I've had a problem with light primer strikes (failure to fire) since the first time to the range. Remington and Herters FMJ have been most problematic, FTF on...
  4. P226 FTF/ Light strike DA

    SIG Sauer Gunsmithing
    I have a P226 that was manufactured in 2009, that I am having another issue with. This time it is light primer strikes. However whats weird is that yet again it only occurs when I am firing from double action. A couple of weeks ago I posted about and issue with my hammer not staying back. I was...
  5. Weird issue with my P320 (FTF, FTE), help please?

    P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    So I took the family to the range yesterday and had some weird behavior out of my P320. Originally set up as a 9MM Compact I purchased the .357 exchange kit and the .40 barrel. I have several hundred rounds through all of these combos without any issues. I was using the .40 barrel and my...
  6. Brand New 220 Combat feed issue

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    Whats up guys. I just got my first sig last week (new 220 combat) and took another firearms training course with a private instructor, and brought it to break it in. At about 30 rounds I started to get Failure to feed malfunctions, 3 total in the first 100 rounds. Seems like a mag problem where...
  7. 1911 Fails to Feed Last Round in Magazine

    1911 Pistols
    I have a SIG 1911 Scorpion 45 cal and it always fails to feed last round in the magazine. Bullet is at the ramp at about a 45 degree angle and the nose is partially in the chamber but it fails to come to battery. I tried 3 different magazines by 3 different manufacturers I tried 3 different...
  8. Sig P229 Failure to Load

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    Apologies if this has been covered in other threads, I searched and found similar topics but nothing exactly what I am experiencing. That being said, I am new to the forum so may have missed it. So I will get right to it- I have owned a few handguns over the years, but am a new Sig owner. My...
  9. Failure to chamber rounds in Sig P226 X-five allround

    X-Series, Sport, Mastershop Pistols
    Howdy! I bought myself a Sig P226 allround, the non-tribal tattoo version, in order to start shooting IPSC. On the indoor 25 meter range, the gun has been just fantastic, with precision that is parsecs ahead of my Glock 17 (duh.). But once the action started on the timed runs in IPSC, I...
  10. FTF Issues - 716 Patrol H18B-DMR

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Greetings, I've had my 716 about 6 months. So far, I've put about 350 - 400 rds through it and have experienced random FTF's. I load my own ammunition and have found through trial and error that cases and necks must be resized even with new, store-bought cases. On the FTF, the round is stopped...
  11. 716's FTF caused by too stiff of extractor spring?

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    I decided to take the rest of the ZQI ammo that bought a few weeks ago to work on the 716 and see if I can come up with any solutions for the folks that are having problems with theirs. Mine works with hand loads, but has not had great success with factory ammo. I looked in the chamber and...
  12. SIG 716 FTF Video (after SIG "repair")

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJC2HIp3ew4" This is my new 716 Patrol rifle that was just sent back to SIG for feeding/accuracy problem. I received it back today. Despite the detailed letter I sent along with the rifle describing the problem and asking that they not just polish the feed ramps and ship...
  13. p938 failure to feed after complete breakdown.

    P238, P938 Pistol
    The other day when cleaning, I decided to go the extra mile. I wanted to completely break everything down, clean it, re lubricate everything, and in the process learn more about the firearm. While I'm am not extremely knowledgeable about all the parts of a pistol, it still wasn't very hard to...
  14. p238 failure to fire

    P238, P938 Pistol
    I have a Sig p238 that I've had for 3 years now and maybe 400 rounds through it. Yesterday while shooting, I had an issue where the hammer didn't drop when pulling the trigger. Solution was pull the trigger again and it fired. This is the 2nd (maybe 3rd) time it's happened with the gun and was...
  15. Sig Mosquito Last Bullet in Magazine Issue

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    I have Mosquito and so far it shoots good with the Golden Bullet. I shot a few hundred rounds first time out and not a single extraction issue or loading into the chamber issue..., except when the second to the last bullet is in the chamber with the last bullet in the magazine..., the slide gets...

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    Sig Sauer 716 Problems and Issues with Shooting: FTF, Cycling and Locking Open, Fixed, Might be Solved with Buffer Spring Hello, I do not have a 716, but I do have two 516's. The 516's had the same FTF not cycling issue and the bolt not locking open. All of it was due to too tight of...

  18. minimum velocity 22LR ammo for P229 Classic

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    I searched but did not find any linked topics, so can anyone answer my question of "What is the minimum velocity in terms of FPS will a P229 22 Classic functions effectively with?" Normally, I'd have been able to just buy some different brands with different FPS/mass/velocity values and fire...
  19. P232 Failure to Feed

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    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...
  20. FTF Jam issues Sig P238

    P238, P938 Pistol
    Never had a problem after 500 rounds. I clean my P238 and now a jam every 2-3 rounds. Jam occurs on feed only. No problem ejecting spent cartridges. Cartridge never gets chambered or leaves magazine and slide remains locked back. Have used the same range amo with no issues in past. Ejector...
