Had to send my first Glock back for some attention. The trigger was very " Gritty " up to the let off and had an audible " clicking" noise. It ejected many rounds directly back at me and some into the forehead. Not terrible desirable. It shot dead on but consistently high be it 5 yards or 50 yards so back it went. Anyone else have similar issues? It is a 19. Just curious.

Just got word today regarding our Glock 19 Gen 4 transition.

Just under three thousand guns.

Malfunctions = 0.

Confidence is what you carry.

Good news Badge. Glad they got it worked out for you.
Badge Posted - November 14 2016 : 09:26:09 AM
Took the repaired Glock to the range and 40 rounds with zero issues. Obviously it needs some more ringing out but I was pleased. A vast improvement over the pre repair weapon.

So they send out the good samples to gun writers.... then sell the rest to the general public; knowing full-well that many of them will disappoint their purchasers, thereby unleashing a torrent of negative comments and reviews; and damaging the Sig reputation in the process...

Is Sig really that greedy and/or stupid--- to take such a shallow, short-sighted view of their own best interest?

Is there no one in Sig management with the good business sense to point out: "Hey guys: we might save some $ and hassle by doing that; but aren't we hurting ourselves in the long run? In the final analysis, wouldn't honesty be the best policy here; even if it means we have to take a short-term financial hit? Does it make sense to risk damaging our reputation--- the one thing that 'money can't buy', that for a long time now has set us apart from so many others---in order to save a few bucks?"

Is Sig really that dumb?


I think this is the new American business scheme. Don't worry about next year, or even next quarter. How can we boost sales THIS week? No longer do companies look to the future, the bottom line has to get better today. I just finished my 50th year of employment with a small company that always planned for Future patient satisfication to drive the future of the company. If they had followed today's business model, I would never have had a job to go to. Those execs at Sig will move quickly on to other jobs in the industry and repeat this because it made money quickly but is a killer long term.

Yep.

That's how the Japanese cornered the TV market: by gambling on the fact that US manufacturers would take a short-term view, and bail after a few quarters of losses.

So the Japanese started selling their TVs on the US market below what it cost them to make: they lost money on every one they sold; and the more they sold, the more $ they lost.

But while this was going on, US manufacturers were selling very few TVs; and losing $ as a result. After one quarter... two quarters... three quarters of losses, they made the decision--- 'smart' in the short term, suicidal in the long run--- to get out of the TV market altogether.

Then--- now that they had the market all to themselves--- the Japanese raised their prices so they were making money again; but now, with no competition. And the rest, as they say, is history....

Stupidity, and lack of foresight, kills... if America does elect Hillary, perhaps our stupidity and lack of foresight will end up killing us too....

Sounds good LittleBill.

And for the record, I know it isn't all Sig guns that are experiencing issues. PASP is happy with their 227's.
LittleBill Posted - October 23 2016 : 10:00:14 AM
4949,

No, I'm not in LE; but I think I understand the dynamic you're describing.

I didn't realize I was jumping in on an ongoing conversation. I read your comment about the Legion series, and responded as I did because I'd only heard good things about them. With your report, that's changed. I don't have any problem believing what you're saying; again, sorry if I came across that way.

As far as having a beer together, I'd jump at the chance. I suspect we'd agree on a lot more than we'd disagree about. And I don't have any problem when people I respect take a different viewpoint.

Why would the NJSP drop two year old guns in order to switch to another brand? This having created severe logistical problems, legal issues, and having caused embarrassment to the people who chose the 229 in the first place. I don't know if you are law enforcement, but if you are you will know what I am referring to.

But to my point. We were discussing Glock pistols here on the Glock sub forum. The relevancy was that we happened to switch to the same make and model that Badge was asking about. My experience with the Gen 4 Glock 19 was related to Badge. Some of this experience involved a switch made from a certain make and model (Sig 229) that did not work out.

Exfed saw this, and followed up on a conversation he and I had been having off forum. The facts are what they are in this case. Exfed knows the issue and has offered some possible solutions, both on and off forum.

I can't change the truth of what occurred in order to make you and rcalzo happy. The truth and facts are what they are in this case. You guys choose not to believe it and that's fine with me. I guess we won't be having a beer together. Well that's okay, because I am not much of a drinker anyway.

Would I ever buy a Sig after this? Maybe in 10mm. I don't believe there are issues with the 10mm Sig, and from photos of the slide rails I can see they were designed to handle 10mm pressures.

Enough of this nonsense and bickering. I am looking forward to a hopeful positive range report from Badge.

LittleBill Posted - October 23 2016 : 09:12:26 AM
No! I feel terrible! Like you've violated my safe space! Without even so much as a trigger-warning!

How could you?!!!


I feel like I'm starting to melt....



Seriously though:

It wasn't my intention to have the final word, sorry if I came across that way. I really was posing the question: is Sig (or any other gun maker for that matter) really that dumb, to imagine they'd benefit themselves in the long run with those kind of bait-and-switch tactics?

Especially Sig: whose reputation has always been one of their top selling-points...?

But hey: maybe they are...

As to why any agency would switch to Glocks if the Sigs they were using weren't fatally-flawed; could it be that other considerations besides quality and reliability were in play: such as the budget-driven calculation that over the long run--- even factoring-in the costs of the switch--- using Glocks would simply be cheaper? And that their problems with their current batch of Sigs provided a good opportunity to make the switch?

But if you're right, and Sigs are no longer what they used to be, I expect we'll be seeing other agencies dumping them too.

4949shooter Posted - October 23 2016 : 09:00:26 AM
I don't know Lttlebill. You tell me.

Better yet, I will tell you. You and Rscalzo are right. Sigs are perfect and I have been totally lying about the entire mishap with Sig. I have nothing better to do but come on a Glock sub forum so I can lie about Sigs to piss off the Sig lovers.

As a matter of fact, the New Jersey State Police had absolutely nothing better to do than go through a logistical and possible legal nightmare of getting rid of 2 year old guns in order to switch to a brand they have avoided for decades.

Okay? Feel better now?

In some cases the guns locked up and couldn't be cleared without requiring intervention from an armorer with tools.

It was really unfortunate to see this happen, as our old 228's were near flawless,



I'd be interested to know what they found.

The early P229DAO model of which I have one, seemed to be pretty flawless among the guys who got them. Only one friend of mine seemed to have consistent problems with the extractor.

I had some problems with the extractor (double feeds)on my P250 45 compact that were remedied by SIG putting in an extractor with more initial bite on the case rim so the extractor could not bounce over and past the rim if the case hit the top round in the mag on cycling.

My 320 45 Compact had an extractor that was a hair too tight and could stop just short of battery if I tried to feed a case that had been reloaded many times. I was able to take care of that myself by smoothing the sharp edges on the extractor and opening up the claw to breechface gap to match that of my 250. (It took two fingers and lots of effort to slide a fresh case under the extractor)

I have had no problems with the 9MM 320SC, and no problems with the 40SC kit for the 250.

One thing I do note with the 45, 9, and 40 cases is that the inside surface of the rim can tend to roughen after a number of firings and resizings. It's just rough enough to catch the extractor short of battery. My Dillon shellplate catches these easily. A clean case should slide under with no effort. A munged case will take effort. If the rim cannot be smoothed out with fine paper, the case goes in the brass can at the range.



Exfed,
I think the answer is in your Sig line (no pun intended).

The Sig guns are being turned in and replaced this fall. The entire transition should be completed by mid-December.
Sig never came up with a solution or fix to the problem, hence the transition to Glock.

They did swap out some extractors (my issued gun included), but this did not completely solve the issue. I am thinking Sig's use of lower cost parts, springs, etc. is the issue.....maybe.

Military arms Channel does a good torture test comparison video including the Sig Legion, a Glock, and a Hungarian made Sig copy. The Legion, which as we know is supposed to be their top of the line product, failed miserably.

To Hell and Back reliability is no more. I hope they get the issues resolved though.


The Sig Legion in this particular test may have "failed miserably"; but I've heard nothing but good reports about the Legions in general. The American Rifleman loved the one they tested.







Don't forget the American Rifleman was most likely given hand picked sample to test. It is not part of a 3000 gun delivery.

Except you totally missed the point of that line. The basic firearm is a standard 220, 226, or 229. They incorporate some top of the line Bruce Grey parts, a unique finish and a new line of sights. Guess what you missed was that the Legion was also a test bed for the new US manufacture red X-5 series as the cuts in the frame duplicate those of the European X-5's no longer available.

So the test uses a model that is built to tighter tolerances? Guess what? The X-5 series or X-6 would also fail. So would a Gold Cup. Looser tolerances will allow a greater range of functioning when sand is introduced to the gun.

In some tests, he admits that the substances used to "check" the guns varies from test to test. Not that scientific.

Meanwhile, the 320 did just great and the NJSP couldn't get them to run.

Check the Glock test. Same failures.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYUz5jahjFs

What I did notice is, when he pushes the handguns down into the sand and mud while loaded, he covers the muzzle with his fingers. One day he's going to lose a few.





It isn't just the Legion, it is also other current production guns, including the newest 229.

As to your claim that the NJSP couldn't get the 320 to run... The Sig engineers came to the NJSP facility and couldn't get their own guns to run. In testing the 320 died when the Glock kept chugging along.

One thing I do note with the 45, 9, and 40 cases is that the inside surface of the rim can tend to roughen after a number of firings and resizings. It's just rough enough to catch the extractor short of battery. My Dillon shellplate catches these easily. A clean case should slide under with no effort. A munged case will take effort. If the rim cannot be smoothed out with fine paper, the case goes in the brass can at the range.



Exfed,
I think the answer is in your Sig line (no pun intended).

The Sig guns are being turned in and replaced this fall. The entire transition should be completed by mid-December.
Sig never came up with a solution or fix to the problem, hence the transition to Glock.

They did swap out some extractors (my issued gun included), but this did not completely solve the issue. I am thinking Sig's use of lower cost parts, springs, etc. is the issue.....maybe.

Military arms Channel does a good torture test comparison video including the Sig Legion, a Glock, and a Hungarian made Sig copy. The Legion, which as we know is supposed to be their top of the line product, failed miserably.

To Hell and Back reliability is no more. I hope they get the issues resolved though.


The Sig Legion in this particular test may have "failed miserably"; but I've heard nothing but good reports about the Legions in general. The American Rifleman loved the one they tested.

Except you totally missed the point of that line. The basic firearm is a standard 220, 226, or 229. They incorporate some top of the line Bruce Grey parts, a unique finish and a new line of sights. Guess what you missed was that the Legion was also a test bed for the new US manufacture red X-5 series as the cuts in the frame duplicate those of the European X-5's no longer available.

So the test uses a model that is built to tighter tolerances? Guess what? The X-5 series or X-6 would also fail. So would a Gold Cup. Looser tolerances will allow a greater range of functioning when sand is introduced to the gun.

In some tests, he admits that the substances used to "check" the guns varies from test to test. Not that scientific.

Meanwhile, the 320 did just great and the NJSP couldn't get them to run.

Check the Glock test. Same failures.

What I did notice is, when he pushes the handguns down into the sand and mud while loaded, he covers the muzzle with his fingers. One day he's going to lose a few.

The signature is something a long dead boss of mine used to tell us when we were kids on the job and were looking for explanations of life and work. He was OSS during WWII, but you'd never know it from looking at him. We made fun of it then, but now we realize that he was right.

I suppose we have an advantage since we know more about our weapons than most MOS. I pretty much have all my SIGs working 100%, and if they don't I am able to diagnose the problems, which are usually very simple and don't return once solved.

I'd be interested to know what they found.

The early P229DAO model of which I have one, seemed to be pretty flawless among the guys who got them. Only one friend of mine seemed to have consistent problems with the extractor.

I had some problems with the extractor (double feeds)on my P250 45 compact that were remedied by SIG putting in an extractor with more initial bite on the case rim so the extractor could not bounce over and past the rim if the case hit the top round in the mag on cycling.

My 320 45 Compact had an extractor that was a hair too tight and could stop just short of battery if I tried to feed a case that had been reloaded many times. I was able to take care of that myself by smoothing the sharp edges on the extractor and opening up the claw to breechface gap to match that of my 250. (It took two fingers and lots of effort to slide a fresh case under the extractor)

Anytime Brother. Looking forward to a range report..

4949shooter, what types of problems has your agency been experiencing with the failing Sigs?
