    Can anyone explain this to me? I just got this Sig P250 and after about 20 rounds or so this happened! I thought it might have been just the maybe the case was packed to hard but then it happened again about 30 rounds layer! Any help would be great!

    Type and brand of ammo? Caliber? And is the base ripped or blown?

    My first instinct would be to change ammo. But you really should also get a Smith to look at your gun.

    It was plinking ammo from the range (I use it all the time and this is the first time it has happened) I thought I might have been the ammo to so I loaded some federal and same thing! It is .40 in the compact model. Another guy said it looked like something called "firing out of battery"

    My 10/22 ruger will do the same thing if it gets to happy and excited . It looks like the round is firing before it is chambered fully . Fire it but examine the breech each shot and make sure it is locked all the way forward , if not then that may be your problem

    Being as that you changed ammo and it still happened leads me to believe Its the firearm. I advise caution. Have a gun smith look at it before any more shooting. Better to pay than lose an eyeball. But to answer why. I don't really know the cause.

    Start with a gun Smith. May want to look at your cleaning and lube technique.

    That looks like the round is not supported completely by the chamber.

    Back to the manufacturer. Include a photo of how a new round sits in the barrel. Chances are the feed ramp area.

    BACK TO SIG!!! That is bad. It was not surprising when you first wrote "range" ammo. Presumed reloads and probably not very well done. BUT when you said it did the same thing with new Federal ammo? Send it in.

    That was my first thought. Here's a pic of the results of a Glock infamous unsupported chamber.

    Contact Sig about it. If they tell you to send it back be sure to send a couple cases with it. Do not take it to a gunsmith! This looks like a warranty problem, not something to tinker with locally.

    Talked to Sig this morning and because I am not the original owner they will not honor the warranty! I know a smith here in town but I'm wondering if its a bigger deal than a local smith can fix.

    Does not surprise me coming from Sig. I am a Sig trained armorer, but have NEVER owned one. Everyone I have met that works for Sig is an AZZHOLE!!

    That's unusual. I have a Sig P250c and in 40sw but I never had a problem with it after 1500 rounds. The chamber completely surround the casing so there's something flawed with yours.

    You said you bought it used my guess is you bought someone's headache.

    I believe that is the answer.
