    im not expert but i know that the sig mosquito has a light spring and a heavy spring with it. perhaps this is the case. from not loading and not ejecting both, sounds like too strong a spring to me

    the 226 is set up on the full size frame so i dont know about the spring was pretty stiff when i took it apart for cleaning was hoping it might just need some break in time any ammo around 1220 fps was hit or miss the viper stuff is about1400fps worked great just that got about 2500 rounds of different stuff

    It could be you need a lighter recoil spring but I'd try really lubing the rails well and see if that helps. It will also probably get better after it's been shot and had around 500 rounds put through it.

    I have a S&W Model 41 I bought recently used and it looked to be clean and in good shape. Well on the first visit to the range it shot poorly and had several FTF with Remington bulk Gold HP ammo. I took it home and cleaned and lubed the gun and on the next range visit it ate everything including the Remington Gold HP ammo.:D

    At this point I'd be calling Sig Customer Service and explaining the problem and demanding a fix. :mad:

    checked their web site under FAQ and depending which spring it has it might only eat 1400fps so I think the answer is hot loads no problem let you know
