    P 226 Slide Rattle

    A few months ago I purchased a CPO P226. The gun shoots great and I have never had a FTF. I have noticed in the last couple of weeks that the slide rattles when it is not locked opened. Is this a common problem with the sigs. Is there anything I can do about it. It does not effect the shooting of the gun but it is very annoying. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If it doesn't affect the shooting (which is the gun's purpose), why is it a problem?

    I find the rattle annoying. I now realize I have very shakey hands. Must stop drinking so much coffee.

    Iíve had a p226 navy for about six months. I went and checked it out to see if there was any rattle that I havenít noticed. Nice and quiet. Wish I could be more help. I could see how it would be annoying.

    I noticed it one the back section of my 226 cpo 9 not long after I got it home.. The front locks up like a vault, and it's far more accurate than I, so I worry not. Confirmed after handling a friend's 226 like mine, older style, that he picked up from a gun show long ago. Also same exact play in the rear of the slide by the hammer.. front locks solid.

    no worries

    BUT... I'm looking for Sig opinions on Slide lube, as I read on the Sig forum that remoil is just solvent + mineral oil... I might have to start up the question in the Sig forum to see who's using what. "slide-glide" etc. I dunno.. it's all new to me.

    I have a SIG that rattles...seems like a poor frame-to-slide fit, but still shoots great and I've never had any functional problems.

    After lubing the slide and frame with Brian Eno's Slide-Glide, the rattle goes away.
