    Update

    Well - had a meeting at club this evening so took SIG along to run some rounds thru. remember - it was now clean, re-lubed but with, as I could still detect, some apparently excessive (IMO) resistance from slide.

    I know the S&B is somewhat vindicated as SW99 and P95 both ate it easily - but anways - just took two loaded mags with me using S&B. First mag (a 10) - third shot - bad feed - round tipped right up and jammed. This failure means mag out to clear. IIRC one more jam in that mag - last round.

    Other mag was a 20 with 15 rounds - that rattled thru pretty well but still had one bad feed.

    So - it is better that's for sure and will I know eat up +P all day long. But unsure whether yet to go to all hassle of sending back yet - or just run the heck out of it some more. I have yet to add some polishing to feed ramp but that really is not an issue here I feel.

    I have SIG's # somewhere so may just call them as next step.

    Further update -

    Had a good chat with a guy at SIG - he certainly agreed that from their perspective S&B was not a favored ammo at all - many prob's leading back to it.

    He could not really help re this apparent feeling of slide tightness I detected - tho to be honest I really don't remember early on how tight it felt. Logically, there really is nothing happened to the gun to make for a tightening. He reckoned for now - break it in further, another 200 - 300 rounds probably of decent US ammo and see where we go.

    This is about my thinking - as I am loathe to send it back unless really needed. So - carry will be SW99 just for now and soon as I can - run a boat load of ammo thru and re-assess. As I keep saying - +P runs 100% - not a problem at all - but just need to regain confidence when running std pressure..
