A few weeks ago I bought a new P226SCT. Took it to the range last night for the first time and for the first 90 rounds or so it was great. Smooth as butter. But then every 8 or 9 shots it started jamming and not extracting the cartridges properly. Then it went to every 4 or 5 shots, then it went to every shot. I could only fire one shot, the gun would jam, I would clear it, fire one shot and it would jam......etc, etc.......
It was not the ammo. I used Winchester White box, Remington and Blass(?). All ammo jammed. It was not the magazines because I tried all 4 mags that I have and they all jammed equally bad.
The gun was thoroughly cleaned prior to use.
It just wasn't extracting the cartridges properly, almost like the spring wasnt strong enough or something and the empty cartridges got hung up in the slide.
Now I am fairly new to pistols but I was with an instructor who tried it a dozen times or so as well and he too was at a loss.
I guess my question is, has anyone else run into a problem of this sort? Short of sending it back to Sig, anyone have a possible solution?
I am a littlle upset over this. I bought a new pistol..... loved it.... admired it.... carressed it... shot it......and it let me down. Didnt even make it through my first range visit.:smt076
Sig reliability? Not for me so far.........
