Vague Sig Slide Release Question
I'd recently seen a post regarding use of the slide release on, I think, Sigs in general. I apologize but I was not able to find the post and can't recall the exact context or if a particular model was mentioned. But, the comment, as I remember it, was something like "the Sig slide release wasn't designed or intended to be used to release the slide to chamber a round".
Naturally this has been bugging me since I read it. I'm coming from an M1911 background, but have recently fired a 226 and a 229 and that's how I fired both weapons...pop in another mag and drop the slide.
Is this incorrect practice for the 22x models, or did I misinterpret the comment that I think I remember?
Again I apologize for vagueness but I'm hoping there's enough info here that someone might know the likely intent of the comment. I don't own a Sig but hope to soon, so I also apologize for my ignorance of the gun.
This may have been in a thread about the use of a particular style hold when shooting the P220 SAO, and that hold tending to release the slide.
