One person looked at it all.

Is this mainly just talk about your Sig's here and discuss general stuff about them and that's about it?

I love this Forum.

But at the same time, while there obviously are numerous experienced "kitchentop gunsmiths" and handloaders here... There is nary a decent step - by- step, how - to - guide for even an activity so banal as handloading! Instead, we have to refer to other Forums or YouTube for such! There are more opinionated posts on tacticle warrier testosteronium and politickz than anything else!

Sooo sad!

Now, without getting too polytacticulopseudoarticulowordy...
I really wanted to have a compilation of DIY Videos and Tips for non - gunsmiths to quickly search through for various odds and ends.

Hopefully, we'd have enough information on the following to do repairs on our own!

P210
P22x & M11-A1
Px38
P250
P290
P320
SP2xxx

I'll start with my favorites below, please add your personal favorites if you have any.

No routine Field Strips / Cleaning Videos here!

Note: Some videos are redundant, but have been added due to differences in parts (extractors, etc.) and better clarity (the newer ones are in HD!).

Apply a drop of oil to both the front and rear sights, and let them soak for an afternoon or so before easing them out...

Barrel Fitting

There aren't any really good SIG - specific barrel fitting guides on YouTube (that I know of). The guide for 1911s is of higher quality and goes into more detail.


D***ed beavertail and anterior slide serrations



Unless dealing with match barrels, SIG factory barrels are for the most part loose and will drop right in.

A simplistic (and yes, potentially dangerous) way of visualizing things is as follows:

Pretend the barrel is being cycled through the action. Cycle it to where it hangs up tight, hold it against the light, note where light doesn't pass, and remove a very little bit of material at the contact points, where the resistance is. Unlike what was mentioned in the first video, I did file off some material where he explicitly said not to; the barrel wouldn't even tip up to the point where I could assess if material needed to be removed from the front of the hood - the area he emphasized.

And just like what that hot British lady's voice says when disembarking from the Tube...

"Mind the (extractor) gap."

As a reference, this is where barrels typically wear. Some of the spots correspond to exactly where one needs to shave excess metal off.

204F_L.jpg 204UF1_L.jpg

Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker stones have worked very well for me. Start with Medium (dark), then Fine (white). I haven't felt the need to use the Ultrafine (white, red ends) stones.

See pduque's thread for appropriate barrel & caliber swaps.

Would like to add my support for this being made a "Sticky"!!!

There is a LOT of useful information here that I can and eventually will use in the future. I'd really hate to have to go searching for it every time I wanted to see how to do something! Thanks!!!
