    Meg-Gar Sig P227 10 round Mag. Fails to lock back after last round fired

    i have been reading that some P227 Meg-Gar 10 round Mags fail to lock back after the last round is fired. I have such a Mag. So it seems there is truth to this item with some of the new P227 10 round Mags Mfg in Italy by Me-Gar. Any other P227 owner having this problem?

    Not sure if it's a mag issue or shooters inadvertently depressing the slide lock lever while shooting.... most new-to-Sig users experience this due to the placement of the slide lock in relationship to their right thumb while doing a modern 2 handed grip with thumbs forward.

    Depressing the slide lock lever will not allow the slide to lock back after the mag becomes empty. I see this quite a bit until users realize they are doing it.

    Or it could be the mag, lol. I've had nothing but excellent reliability with Mec Gar mags for my Sig 226 and Beretta 92. I currently own 12-14 mags by Mec Gar and they are better than factory mags.

    Good reply that just might be my. Problem. I will keep close watch where my thumb is being placed. Thanks for the help.

    No problem... i've done it myself from time to time when I don't shoot my Sig for a while. A different grip is required compared to all my other guns.
