Hello everybody, I have recently brought a Sig p232 and I took it down to the range twice and both times it jammed on me.. Does anybody have a idea why and what should i do to fix it.

Try giving it a really thorough cleaning, then a light oiling. If you still have problems change ammo, then try a different magazine. My HK4 .380 only likes FMJ and PowrBall ammo.

Failure to feed? Failure to eject? Stove pipe? Failure to pick up a round?

There are so many types of failures. Which one?

Hey CCboy, I just tried to send you a PM and your storage is full or something. Make some room in there.

I'm in Sac and shoot at Sac Valley. Where do you shoot?

When I had a 232, it hated the WWB ammo with the flat nose. It shot everything else flawlessly but hated Winchester...

Im am not sure where the failure is. It will fire one or two rounds then jam, it will lock it self cocked back, i have to cock it back again to eject the shell and feed a new round...

Does the handgun have a "slide release"?
