Default Lockup

Can someone tell me (detailed description) how to check barrel to slide lockup on a Sig. I have no clue what to look for and how to do it. And also do sigs have a lot of horizontal and vertical play in their slides? Mine does. And when I rack and lock the slide back should I be able to wiggle the recoil rod as it sticks out the muzzle end. I can wiggle it a lot and it even moves the slide up and down when I move the recoil rod up and down. I just want to know because it was a CPO sig that I bought a little over 2 months ago and need to know if I got screwed on the deal. If so, then I'm gonna sell it. I hate to part with it though because I love how it looks. It's a sig P226 elite. Oh yeah and one other thing. There's only one location of the serial number on it. That is on the frame. Is that normal? Usually they put the serial number on the slide and barrel too right?????

If the gun functions properly and hits what you point it at, don't worry about it. Sigs are known for having some rattle in them.

Default problem

Should it turn out that there's a problem, you would knowingly sell a defective firearm to an innocent buyer?

I have an FNP-45 that has the tip of the ejector pin broke off,even so it only malfunctions when grossly limp-wristed... But now tends to fling brass back in my face one or two shots every mag. I've had an offer or two to buy it even with the broken tip off the ejector,but i just can't bring myself to sell a gun that I know for a fact has something wrong with it no matter how small. One of these days I'll send it back to FNH and then sell it with a clear conscience

i pulled my p220 out of the safe. its the same design as the p226 just a different caliber. the guide rod is flush serial number only on the frame. very little rattle or slop. its got "45 auto" on the side of the chamber in sig's font. its got made in germany on one side of the slide and exeter nh the import location on the other. mine is a 1994ish model.

hope that helps

The problem you have is that you asked too many questions at one time for the small minds who troll the internet to stay concentrated. Try breaking the questions down and number them so the little minds can keep focus.

Just to put it out there. I would notify the person of the play in the slide and when it's racked and locked back that u can move the guide rod up/down left/right. I wouldn't not tell them about that because I don't rip ppl off. Other than that. It ejects fine, fires fine, feeds fine. Had problems at first but called sig and they sent me new mags and that fixed the feeding issue.

How do u check barrel to slide fit isy number one question. That's what I really want to know. And thanks Jon for explaining yours to me. My guide rod is flush with the slide shut too. I just wanted to know if yours is able to be moved around with the slide locked back. Lock back the slide then take your thumb and forefinger and try to move the tip of the guide rod up down left right. Does it move and does it somewhat move the slide up and down when u do that? Thanks.
