Is it the same magazine?
It sounds like you need a new magazine spring, or at least clean the inside of the mag

I can say with confidence this is a magazine issue. The magazine follower is probably prematurely engaging the slide stop.
Try a different mag, or as pgrass101 suggested, put a new spring in the mag and clean it (but never use any more than a super-thin coating of oil inside a mag, oil can render primers useless).
Just wondering, does it do it with both FMJ and HP ammo?
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Check in on the Sig forum,on the Armorer's board. Not uncommon, and basically 1 of 3 things:
- Mag. (hint, hint)
- Slide release spring bent/too strong/not in place
- Shooter's thumb.

take apart clean, replace spring...make sure follower is clean and free to move.

Sig mags only and clean them should fix your problem.

Mags or your thumb is in the way...My thumb gets in the way from time to time.

Return the mag for a new one.
That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

How many mags do you have for that pistol? If you have 2 or more, then I would put a small piece of masking tape on the bottom of each one and mark them 1,2,3, etc. and try each of them again. When the problem arises make note of which magazine is in the pistol. Try all of the magazines and if it is only one or two, then send those back to Sig Sauer for replacement. If it is all of them, then it could be your slide release or thumb as others have stated.
