    Magazine capacity

    I purchased a new Sig P250 the other day. Magazine capacity says 16 but
    no way can I get beyond 15. Will it loosen up or shall I learn to live with
    it? Thanks

    I have no experience with Sigs BUT are you sure it doesnt mean 15+1 in the chamber

    I got a manual over the internet for my pro2009 and it mentioned the gun as having 16 round capacity and its 15+1. I cant see a clip that holds rounds side by side having so much tension.

    The Sig website states the P250 9MM having a mag capacity of 15. Can't imagine the .40 having a 16 rd capacity.

    My guess is as stated 15+1.

    I checked the web too. The gun says it's 15 round but .... it appears they sell a 16 round mag as an accessory. http://www.sigsauer.com/SigStore/Sho...&productid=253

    So if you do have a 16 round mag, the spring is probably tight. Leave 15 in there for a couple days and then try for that last round. If you have the 15 round mag, well, 15 is all you're going to get.

    I thought about the 15 + 1 too but the magazine is stamped 16.

    I have noticed on occasion that hand loads can be tighter than factory. Case diameter is not always returned to absolute correct value and a few thousandths error can add up to problems in a high cap mag.

    I have also found that tapping the mag in my hand to move all rounds to the rear or front of the mag can on occasion relieve a tight stack.

    It's probably what Todd said but if not my ramblings could apply.

    Also Welcome to the forum.

    Here is a good thread on the subject:

    16 Round Magazine

    Sig Forum also has a thread about the P250 and the same info is buried in there somewhere.

    My P250 is 15+1. I suspect yours is, too.

    I can't get any more than 9 rounds in my 10 round mag.

    Thanks for all the advice. The magazine has loosened up and goes to 16 rounds now.
