Default Sp2022 jamming

Went to the range this weekend for the second time with my new sp2022 40 cal. Put another 150 rounds though it using Winchester white box 168 grain ammo. Slid int eh first full magazine (10 rounds), racked the slide and it jammed! Ejected the magazine and the round fell out.

Did you ride the slide? You should always release the slide quickly and let the spring do it's job.

I did do it quickly, and it happened several times (with 2 different factory magazines) but only with 10 rounds loaded. If I only had be 7 rounds in the mag, it was ok. The slide gets stuck in the rear most position with the round jammed.

Put a touch of grease on the slide rails. (A touch!) Chances are you have a new tight pistol that will work itself out shortly. Assuming you HAVE cleaned and oiled it between the range trips. Winnie the White Box is relatively dirty ammo. That little bit of extra friction makes a difference with a recoil spring closely calibrated for tension.

Also note what Sparky suggested. Be sure you pull the slide back TO THE END and let it FLY like a slingshot. Doing it at home with snap caps may be very helpful too.

What grease is recommended? I take good care of my pistols... I clean and oil them almost immediately after a trip to the range.

I use Tetra, but any solid grease would do it. A sample of SIG grease usually comes in a box with the new gun.

When I really want a slick rail, without using real abrasives, I buff it with a patch of lead removal cloth (the thick kind like Kleenbore). The patch will turn black, it is normal. Then rinse it off with some solvent or alcohol, wipe or blow it dry, and dab it with grease.

Also -and I don't remember if it applies to the 2022 - some SIG's have asymmetric recoil springs. In that case be sure the front end is in the front.

Mag springs might be the culprit as well. Leave mags fully loaded for a day or two before you shoot it again and see what happens. Just throwing out some ideas


Never enough guns or ammo

My 2022 never had issues, but I had the same issue with my G17. Turned out the mag was the issue. I should if known when I could barely put in 8 rounds in a ten round mag. I broke it in now. My 2022, I can ride the slide, and rack as slow as possible and it still feeds.
