    When the slide is removed, the takedown lever might move back to the "4 o'clock" position... As i understand it, if that happens you need to push up on the slide lock and rotate the takedown lever to the 6 o'clock position to put the slide back on. Is this your situation?

    Note at about 1:25 in this video she appears to push down on something inside the frame... maybe resetting the FCG after one of the guys squeezed the trigger?

    I don't know much about the Sig but the above mentioned is also true for the M&P's and was true for my 229 and XD. The take down lever does have a tendency to turn. When I convert my M&P to shoot SIM rounds the take down lever is a pain to get the conversion kit on.

    Side note: This reminds me of the first time I took apart my Ruger Mk III and found the safety detent sitting on the table. The detent seemed to have magically appeared out of the ether. "What the heck is that?" I thought....

    Every once in a while a gun turns into a logic puzzle during reassembly. Happens to the best of us...

    What does the owners manual say about reassembly?

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    I think the OP went to bed. And he's now having Sig Nightmares - no, wait ! That's a different Sig...

    This is why I own lots of different guns. If I can't reassemble one, I don't need to panic or loose sleep.

    From the stories I've heard this is nothing compared to making the mistake of opening up an old High Standard .22 revolver. Over the matter of a very few cents they didn't make a spring(s) and a part(s) captive. Once launched the original parts were usually never seen again and gunsmith intervention was normally required.
