  1. P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    Recently while training at my range I had several issues with my most used magazines where it wouldn’t fully load the round and the slide would stop half way. Had several people look at it that are very knowledgeable about sig stuff and they all agree it’s bad springs. I have done so much...
  2. P238, P938 Pistol
    Sorry if this is a noob question! :huh: After disassembling the slide of my P238 for cleaning, I noticed orange paint on the first two or three coils of the spring. Apart from the paint I've been unable to discern any difference between the two ends of the spring. Does the paint indicate which...

    Hi everyone, I'm buying a 10" Sig 516 Upper (barrel, BCG, Charging handle, handgrips, etc.) from a private seller. It does not come with the "Sig heavy buffer and spring." I already have an AR-15 Pistol Lower (complete with the Tailhook Mod 2 brace). Do I need to buy the Sig heavy buffer and...

    Would love to hear any feedback on my experience with a new P365. I'm sure a lot of this has been covered in other posts but I seem to have a combination of all the problems in my new pistol. Purchased my P365 at my local gun shop. Took it to the range and here are the facts. The box says I have...
  5. SIG Sauer Gunsmithing
    Greetings, I was going through some videos on youtube and came across this: He mentions that the work done to his pistol included a "spring contouring". It can be found right around the 12:30 mark. His explanation that he "contours" the spring so that it sits better (I'd think lower) on the...

    Good day, I wanted to ask if there was a way for me to order gray guns items and have them shipped to the Philippines successfully. Would you happen to know if GGI has successfully done so previously? In case that is not possible, I might have some family going state-side and was wondering if...

    Trigger Bar Spring came off randomly after 45 Rounds, with my P239 SAS .375 - Is this something someone else has run into? If so, why?
  8. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Does anyone have BOTH of these pistols to compare? I used to have a P14, and I MUCH prefer the new P227. My old P14 moved faaaar away and I can't answer my own question now. I'm more wondering about the compatibility of the magazine springs. I no longer have the P14 to measure the spring...
  9. P238, P938 Pistol
    I was cleaning my Sig 938 yesterday when I noticed that the slide stop lever would not go up when I pulled the slide. I disassembled it again and saw that the very small spring that lifts the lever up was bent. One end of the spring goes into the gun, then there is a small coil and then a...

    Many probably think the JP Silent spring is a gimmick but when it works, it's real nice. I have no issues with my 716 until I put in a JP Silent Captured Spring. BCG bounce galore! I've even purchased their spring kit and tried every spring they got. NG. The BCG bounce is so bad that the...

    Hi All, I have been searching around for a way to either lighten up the hammer pull back on my SP2022 It is quite hard/tight. Along with the Long hard trigger pull. Do I need to switch out both springs, if so what are the ramifications of doing so? Is that a problem with striking the primer...
  12. SIG Sauer Pistols
    I recently purchased an SP2022 in .40, primarily to be used for home defense. It only came with one 10 rd. magazine. I like to keep the weapon with a loaded mag in the grip, in an electronic safe next to my bed for quick access in case of an emergency. My concern is that the keeping the mag...
