    I've carried my Sig P220 for the last 25 years. Never had a feed problem that didn't trace back to the ammo. Labor day weekend I had it out at the range, shooting with a friend. At first it was fine. After about fifty rounds, it started having problems. Every few rounds the slide would stop just shy of fully forward. I took it apart when I got it home to find the slide lock spring broken in half. It was jamming the slide back. I have a new spring on the way from Brownell's. After 25 years of use, stuff happens. I'll order the rest of the springs next payday, and replace them all.

    It sounds like you probably solved your own problem if the gun has made it as well as you say it did for a quarter century id say its a pretty good gun that lives up to the Sig name.

    I was about to say to replace your springs but then you already beat me too it in your post lol.

    A gun is a machine and just like any other mechanical device it wears out over time and parts need to be replaced.
