    Just received my sig laser direct from sig. It was supposed to be factory sighted but at 25 feet was shooting 12" high and 6" to the left. This was correctable however every few rounds the laser would turn itself off. Has anyone had this problem?
    It's mounted on a P226 and I'm using Winchester 115 grain FMJ ammo

    Call them and send it back it has a problem if its shutting down. As far as factory sighted it will be different for different ammo. That's why its adjustable you will also notice if u take it off and put it back on it will not be in the same place and need re zeroed

    That's why Sig is one of the most liked companies in the gun industry.

    Also was having about a 5% failure rate with my 10 - month old mosquito. She said put it in the box with the laser and they would take care of it. Great people to work with. Fortunately my 226 and 239 operate flawlessly.

    I just got the P290 with lazer. My lazer is turning off after every round. I will call Sig on Monday and see what they are going to do about it.

    It cost me $.66 to mail the laser back to Sig, and in 2 weeks I got a brand new one delivered. No questions were asked, just great customer service.
    Way to go Sig.

    You really can't beat their CS. It's really 2nd to none. I am quite impressed with their QC as well as my SIGs have never given me an issue needing service.

    I had ordered a Sig laser from Sig 6 months or so ago and mounted it on my P226 Elite .40. It would turn off after every shot. I called Sig and they sent a FedEx return label for the return . They sent me a new one and the same thing happen, it would turn off after every shot. Sig sent me a FedEx return label and then refunded my money after I returned it, so I lost nothing. I've had Sigs for 20 plus years and this is the first time I've had to return something, so I guess I'll stay with Sig. But I won't buy a laser light from them again.

    I and several others have the Lasermax guide rail sight and no one's had a single complaint. I've had mine 2 years now on my G27 and used it several times and it worked flawlessly. They're pricey, but have worked well and are internal, so no special holster is needed. Also, you don't adjust them. I've had my P228 for 25 years and my son's dept issued him the 226. Sig is a great company and make great firearms, but obviously there's a problem with their lasers.

    Well I sounds to me like they're farming out the manufacture to a 3rd party and their QC is crappy. So it would be shame on SIG for putting their name on a crappy item. Maybe they should contract with a top tier company that makes laser aiming devices to match the quality of their firearms.
