Well, Sig has done me very wrong and I do not think they can recover after today. I have already sworn off any new Sigs and released my desire for a P220 Equinox. I don't need any gun this badly. Especially an overpriced hunk of metal they won't stand behind.
My Sig returned this afternoon with no prior warning. I opened the box and took the gun out to see nothing had changed. And there was a form with it. The gunsmith's comments are as follows:
So if that's the case, Sig owners beware... your gun will begin to implode eventually.Quote:
There is no estimate required for repair since the wear is entirely normal. The hardcoat is still intact - only the color is worn.
The barrel also shows normal wear for a pistol that has had a substantial number of rounds fired through it.
The "wear" on the gun is not normal. I'm not the idiot they think I am. The extractor rod is smashing into the chamber and is cutting away at it. There are visible gashes in the frame. And the gun is shaving metal. With his comments I am forced to believe he didn't even take the gun down, he just looked at what shows when the slide is pulled back, because that all is normal. The wear is also not smooth and normal on the frame. Here are the photos:
Two Sig Armorers looked at it when it came back, and both agree this is not normal wear on a gun, regardless of how many rounds have gone through it. We looked at the rental P226 and it was in better shape than mine, which says a lot right there. Over the past few weeks I have taken the slides off every Sig handed to me by customers and have seen nothing like this on any of them, regardless of age or amount of rounds through the gun.
I called customer service and the man I dealt with was rude and nasty. He actually yelled at me! And he spoke to me like I was a complete idiot and had no idea what I was talking about. I told him what was happening with the gun isn't normal and I was passed off like I was just being paranoid about some normal finish damage from the slide rubbing on it. I know the discoloration on the barrel and frame are normal. It happens, and I have kept a close eye on it since day one. But the gash on the chamber is not normal, nor are the gashes on the frame or the shaved metal. The Sig Armorers don't think the gun was even taken down.
Get this. He says to me, "You know, the gun does need some time to break in."
"Really? The gun is 4 years old with about 7,000 to 10,000 rounds through it. Exactly how long does it take to break in a Sig?"
His reply: "Yeah? And?"
So we are going into attack mode. I am going to make a few calls tomorrow, first off to our Sig rep. If that doesn't work one of the Sig Armorers is going to call to see if they treat him differently. Either way, I am telling them exactly what I told you, especially about that prick on the phone this afternoon.
And on Thursday I'll be calling Glock for prices. I need a gun I can trust, and obviously my Sig has breathed its last and no one wants to do CPR. So I'll give Glock a go. And I'll make sure I let the customers who look at Sigs know what happened to mine.
Can you tell I am enraged? :smt076 :smt084 :smt091 :smt097 :smt067
