    Sig229 Malfunction?

    so I'll cut right to the chase here


    I have a pretty new Sig 229 with just a couple hundred rounds through it. While practicing dry firing and feeling out the trigger I notice that when staging the trigger (in double action) sometimes when I get really close to that release point the hammer falls but doesn't contact the firing pin.

    What I think is happening is the hammer is falling and slipping off the sear, but the trigger isn't pulled as far as it needs to be for the gun to function properly. this is somewhat hard to duplicate, after slowly staging the trigger ten times I can get this problem to happen two or three times.

    Is this just because I'm being stupid and SLOWLY and gradually staging trigger, more slowly than I would if I was actually shooting it? or is this a serious problem?


    for what it's worth this gun has been 100% at the range. 0 issues. And I'm not staging the trigger like I would when I am shooting, I was just trying to feel the trigger out and squeezing very slowly, holding it in one spot for a few seconds and squeezing a bit more. thoughts?

    That thing is a piece of crap. Worse than a Taurus. You should sell it to me at a very discounted rate so you can at least recoop some of your loss before it's too late. Hell, I might even trade you even for my Keltec P3AT.

    Might want to think about that one. He said it was a SIG not a hi-point. I wouldn't give but $20 for one, and thats just cause I am pretty sure I could sell it to my gf for $25+ (she don't know much about guns).

    But are you 100% that the hammer isn't contacting the firing pin?

    Are you sure you are pressing on the trigger and not the decocker?

    110%


    I'd like to see a cutaway picture of a sig, but I haven't been able to find any decent ones online. I wish there was as much about the sig as there is about the glock out there.


    ( glock never did this to me )

    Really? New to guns are you? I wish I could say that was the most ignorant thing I've seen posted...but it's pretty close.

    ha! i'm afraid that trade was never going to happen to begin with! lol


    on topic for a second, I can't get the problem to happen again today. I'm not trying to 'break' my gun, but the fact that the problem was existent was a little concerning.

    I keep trying to ask myself "what would Jesus do" but the only answer to that is Jesus would carry a Glock....I can only assume Jesus is where Glock got their motto from. "PERFECTION" lol


    PS: u mad glock haters? XD

    I'll be able to see if I can reproduce the problem Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll have a few different model Sigs to test. I'm going to try to trade for, or put on layaway, a 226 or 229 when my wife and I go pick up her new BUG.

    I'll post how the testing goes.

    That would be cool. My wife and I are trying to make it to some of the open carry meets up that way. Traveling is difficult with a 6 month old, though. I'll shoot you a PM sometime or make a post, maybe we can see if we can get together, or get a group together.

    I'm guessing you never experienced what Schlitz has, with your 229.

    I've been trying to duplicate the problem and it won't happen. It may be a non-issue now.

    My issue is SIMILAR to this guys issue with this sig290. His hammer falls to the neutral position when staging the DA trigger ONLY when he does it slowly, as I was doing with mine.



    EDIT

    Could this be one of those "breaking in a gun" issues? I don't see how it could be, but I really don't understand completely what is going on inside of the sig. I'm familiar with how a 1911 works and I can only imagine it is similar, but like I said - I've never seen the internals on this bad boy.
