I called Sig when I got home and they're going to to look at it. I would grade today's customer service experience an A
Nothing but problems from this rifle since I got it. I'm having thoughts of trading it in when I get it back.
The service rep asked how many rounds I had through it, because of the " break in period".
He also asked if I had cleaned the rifle. But they advertise it can go thousands of round without cleaning. I guess I got a bad one. It happens. I'm just venting. It wasn't a cheap gun
I am so sorry to hear that.
I had nothing but pleasure out of mine.
Bad feeding is difficult to explain.
Sometimes a new gun wont fully cycle and feed the next round , especially with softer ammo like PMC bronze (not Xtac) or Tula etc.
But it does not sound like that is your problem
Failure to feed in an AR15 is often a magazine issue. Did you try different mags?
