My wife and I have been trying out several models of semiautomatics that are available at our local range. For some reason, my wife seems to have a problems with the two different model Sig 9mm that she has tried, a P229 and P239. If it were just the one gun, I would chalk it up to being a problem with that piece, but it is with both of them. The problem she is experiencing is usually failure to eject the casing properly in that it winds up stuck horizontally in the pin. She has also had one stick in the barrel with one being pushed up from the magazine. In almost all cases, removing the magazine and re-racking the slide solves the problem. The instructors have worked with her on making sure that she has a firm, high, grip and sufficiently locking her arms out to avoid absorbing the recoil, but the problem persists.
Today, we tried a couple dozen rounds in various models of 9mm, including a Glock, Beretta, Kahr, and the Sig. Again, the Sig gave her problems, but surprisingly it was the only one. I thought this was unfortunate, because construction wise I like the Sig and they seem to be good quality. Does anyone have any ideas as to why they could be posing such a problem for her?
