    This might be a noob question b/c I've never seen it on forums.

    After firing ~200 rounds on the sig, the last shot stops catching the mag. This also happened w/ my friend's new sig (mine's a cpo).

    After we fired a few more clips, the empty round would get caught in the slide every once in a while

    Is this the norm for sigs? are we not cleaning it properly? The glocks we shot took nearly 400 rounds w/ no issues at all... are sigs just less reliable?

    I took it to a gunshop and they told me to do a full strip-down (not field strip) and clean every part. Is there a manual for this? b/c my cpo manual def doesn't have anything on it. The manual on the sig website doesn't show how to do a full cleaning either.. just shows all the separate parts on a diagram.

    my bad .. it's a p226 9mm

    Sig advises againts owners doing a full strip down, they want you to send it in to them to do so. As far as not locking back on the final shot; sounds like you're riding the slide release with your thumb (cause of the problem 99% of the time) lots of new Sig shooters do it.

    Jamming could be improper cleaning and lubrication, or even limp wristing even though Sigs aren't too prone to it (at least mine sure isn't, it won't jam no matter how badly I limp wrist). You should call Sig, they should warranty the thing if you just got it. Sigs are great guns and so reliable they are almost boring.

    Good luck with your problems, from what I've heard Sig has great customer service and should take care of you.

    My buddy's 226 had the same issue, and he would also get light strikes occasionally. We replaced all of the springs, and it was back into gear, no problems.
