My Sig P229 is an older, but in great shape, certified pre-owned Sig, that came straight from the factory to me. Not many rounds have been fired out of it. The slide is perfectly tight, and everything else on the gun seems tight and tip top. I've done my FTF drills plenty so I was good at fixing them, but at the same time, I got really freaked out. This is my main carry weapon and I depend on it to function lawlessly to save my life is the situation occurred. Nine FTF's in around 50 rounds with Atlanta Arms FMJ's. Also, making me think of carry a BUG gun as well. So I'm wondering what the problem could be... its not Mags, FTF's happened with all three of the mags I had. Its not the AMMO because I tried hollow points Gold Dots and FMJ Atlanta Arms. Anyway, I went into CroBar today to buy some more ammo, and I was talking to Justin and Taylor in there, and they took my gun apart and they found out there was a tiny binding in my Recoil Spring. It was also shorter than it was supposed to be, and slightly bent. He thought this was the problem, so I've ordered three factory recoil springs, just for future shooting as well. I don't think I'm even close to running 1,000 rounds through this Certified Pre-Owned Sig since I got it. The scary thing is, that I've never had one problem with this gun, and then BOOM, all the sudden, FTF's coming out my ears. Imagine what could have happened in a self-defense shooting, if I had shot once, missed or didn't bring him down, and then had the FTF, and the other guy hit me before I could clear the FTF. Not pretty. Its a real nightmare situation. I'm really thinking of saving for a BUG now, once I get all the kinks out of the Sig. I hope the recoil spring works. If not, I'll be back here trying to figure out what else it could be. Also, practice your FTF's and FTE's. Do your drills, because I guess it could happen, even with a gun you've never had a problem with before. It could be the difference between life and death. Happy training everyone!
