jamming problem. happens on loading new cartridge into chamber. not always, but almost. anywhere from 0-5 times per mag. lead ball, jacketed hollow point, fmj. tried to lube it up. tried to polish ramp. love the gun but cant risk my life on one shot.
cartridge to be chambered stove pipes. need to remove mag, rack, and re-chamber manually (hopefully this works). any suggestions? sent it to sig, they said it was a-o-k. others have tried it. experienced gun people. happens to them also, leading me to believe limp wrist is not "the " only possible answer.

"Life,liberty,and the pursuit of happiness" all can be found and retained with a gun.

Spare Mag, your name is the answer to your problem. The malfunction you describe is due to bent feed lips in the magazine. Or the release point is too far back. Either way replace it and the gun should work fine. George
