what ammo were you using??
You could have saved yourself trouble if you consulted this forum before buying. Sig p224s, particularly made in 2013 (mostly second half of the year), tend to have this problem. I had it too. Before I fixed it, there would be certain ammo types that it did no like: the truncated cone bullet, but worked reasonably well with round nose flat points. It can potentially be fixed by replacing the extractor with a new one. The one that it was shipped with could be moved by pressing behind the long extractor pivot pin, but not easily, creating resistance to the cartridge as it moves up the ramp. I knocked out the pin on which the long extractor pivots, took out the old extractor, which did not want to come out of the channel and had to be knocked out. That extractor was shaped incorrectly. The new extractor dropped in easily, and now pivots easily around the pin. Now the gun feeds EVERYTHING, regardless of how crappy the ammo is. The p224 is a very nice gun if it works, but the old versions definitely had problems.As the title days i just purchased my first sig suaer after doing alot of reasearch on all the various p22 types guns i came across a used p224 sas i stripped it and it looked like it didnt have to many rounds through it for $550 so i picked it up and after taking it out today it turns out it fails to feed about 1 in 10 rounds
Now im debating beacuse the store will credit the price on uses guns if returned in 30 days on if i should get the brand new m11-a1 for $880 or if i should go back to what im more familiar with and get a a compact 1911 from them not sure witch they have a few but thats beside the point
Ive only ever herd good things about these sigs just have some natural feelings of discouragment
I know im not asking any real question but any feedback would be appreciated
