I keep meaning to make a post about this, but I am lazy.

SIG is going through a number of issues right now. I have heard first hand of numerous brand new SIGs with horribly aligned slides, numerous feed problems, and cosmetic blemishes right out of the box. I live within biking distance from the factory and I talk to all the local gunsmiths, and even guys that work at the SIG custom shop. In a nut shell, they are currently way overworked and understaffed (they are working to remedy this next year with the purchase of a new facility and vastly increasing their work force). I am not surprised they missed this. Don't get my wrong, I just bought a brand new P229 and I love it but the sights couldn't hit a barn out of the box and there are gaps in the finish inside the slide from the hanging racks. SIG still makes a great product. However your chances of getting one with "issues" are much higher than they used to be. I say give it one more go. If it still has issues, either have a local smith fix it or if you really feel uncomfortable sell it.
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness
