    I am not a reloading guy, but I would avoid using reloads until U get the gun to work correctly.

    Also, I do not own a sig, so I cannot tell from your description if factory mags are smooth or not. If they are factory mags, they will say Sig or something similiar, I would imagine.

    Gotta re-load, promised The Babe I'd try to make it as economical as I can. Today's training had no feed issues and I specifically started the mags with 5 rounds.

    Am I remembering old info; can Sigs load lead SWC style bullets? Signifacantly reduces the cost while I'm working on the basics.

    Lightbulb "Everything that everyone else said... (+)!"

    "Start calling them "Magazine's..!" (** Not "Clips..! **)

    "A Clip": Has NO mechanically moving parts..."

    "A MAGAZINE": "Does have mechanically moving parts..!"

    my three factory sigpro 10rd magazines are smooth, whereas my two factory sigpro LE hicaps are rough.

    Try some Mec-Gar mags in it and see if that helps. They make them for the p226 and the p228 Sig.

    i shoot eatch week in my IPSC lessons more than 400 rounds in my sigs: one 1X-five and one Xpress, all two of them in 9 mm.

    i like to shoot al sort of 9 mm , but specially Remington , Geco, en also Magtech 24 grains.

    afther i cleaned my guns , i passed a sheet or five,( a good mark) off toiletpaper in the canon, when you do so, you will see that when you thinking that your canon is clean , afther you passed the toiletpaper it is really !!

    sorry for my englisch

    My policy is to shoot until they are no longer considered new and then buy another.

    I love my Sig Pro 2022.

    Mine stove piped on my 1st magazine through it - it only happened once.

    It's never done it again.

    You may be past this - but on all my new guns I always use a high quality "snap cap" (usually A-Zoom brand) and practice getting a feel for my new trigger.

    The dry firing helps to break in and smooth my triggers.

    Again congratulations on buying a great gun - I've only had mine a short time, but really like it.

    Agreed, just went and took my States CWP class today and it was fun and very informative. Alot of common sense but with all the laws you want to make sure you know your States and any State that you may want to take it to in the future (reciprocity)...and always brush up on you laws and stay informed...laws change!!! Dont get caught in a bad situation by not staying informed.
