small issue with sig scorpion, failure to feed
So, after feeding it about 900 rounds, i've noticed one small issue on my new Sig Scorpion 1911.
I've been using all ball ammo, a few brands, federal, WWB, remington UMC, PMC, and Winchester SXZ or whatever. Issue has existed with all ammo i think.
Also using 2 factory mags, and 2 wilson combat mags. The issue still appears with both, but i feel like its MORE with the facotry mags.
95% of it feeds just fine. But ever so often I get a round that refuses to go fully into battery without assistance. The slide cycles, ejects just fine, then it strips the new round and stops about 3/8" from going into battery.
If i go to clear the malfunction with a "tap rack flip" the slide normally finishes seating as soon as I tap the mag. or i can reach up and nudge the slide with my thumb and it'll seat.
I just dumped about 700 rounds through the thing at front sight, and this would happen every few magazines. totally randomly, but never twice in a row. I had no other malfunctions, no stovepipes no type 3's, so i doubt im limp wristing or have severe magazine issues or anything.
Any idea what it could be? The first 3 days of the class the gun was stripped and cleaned a bit, wiped down the feed ramp and whatnot. The 4th day i didnt clean it, but that seemed to have no real bearing.
I suppose its possible its just not lubed enough or it was getting grimy, I'll see how it reacts when i get some froglube on it, but still, i feel like it shouldnt be doing that as much as it is.
suggestions on where to start?
