Your P226 must be German made and have a folded carbon steel slide with internal extractor like my 1996 P226.

It is German and that must be the answer. Based on MCs pix I was correct on what an extractor is. Gentlemen thank you. Both my 224 and 938 have a long one.

Here is the exploded view of your slide, the extractor is item #7 on your slide.

I'll give it a go. Based on what sig users here are saying I'm feeling much better, and will report back if I am having any problems.

Thanks folks for your comments!
I wouldn't worry about your long extractor. Though I have heard many people repeat the story that long extractors are issues, the only extractor I have ever had an issue with in my Sigs was a short one. They work. I will point out though, that there is a difference between the ejector, and extractor. That may have been where the miscommunication with the GS came from. Just shoot it until it won't shoot no more (after a good cleaning and lubrication of your choosing, of course)!

Question Hello Fellow Sig Lovers

I officially joined your forum today although I have been enjoying it and learning from it for a while.

Hopefully my post won't be a downer.

Yesterday I bought a brand new P226 Elite Stainless. It is a true beauty and I am proud to have her. She has the long extractor!

This morning I loaded a few mags and took her for a little spin.

Five rounds into some 115 grain fmj's, I had a failer to eject a fully seated spent round!!!

I removed the mag and racked the slide a few times and both the spent round and full round fell out. I was surprised and a little sad.

Next mag 124 grain PMC Starfire JHP's and I had the exact same failure. Two different mags and two different types and weights of ammo.

Is there a problem? Can it be a fluke. Should I return it. It is going to be my civilian carry so Confidence is critical. PS I fired another fifty rounds including rapid fire and doubletaps with flawless results.

A drop of oil on the pivot pin followed by manual exercise by pushing in the rearward end of the extractor can help. Sounds like it's starting to loosen up, run some more rounds, I wouldn't be concerned quite yet.

It sounds like it just needs a little more break in and possibly didn't have quite enough lube. Some Sigs are pretty tight (and often too dry) when shipped and need to run wet while breaking it in. The fact that you ran another 50 rounds with some rapid fire with no problems sounds like it is coming around. I think she's going to be a fine weapon. I love the P226 more than any firearm I've owned. And that goes for the newer long-extractor models.

Here's my family of SSEs. Right after I bought the P229 .40S&W. She now wears the base Hogue rubber panel grips like I've put on the others.

I like to break them in with 124g American eagle. Just something to look out for, the rosewood grips can come loose. As nice as they look rosewood's aren't the best grip in terms of hold.

I have a long extractor on my 229. I worry more about Mrs. TF finding out about how much I'm spending on ammo to keep it fed and how much I'm going to spend on my next Sig!
Ditto,
I'm afraid if I pass away my wife will sell my firearms for the amount I told her I paid for them?

I hate the long extractor, and search for short extractor guns when buying. I had a 2014 SS 226 that had 9 class 3 malfunctions in the first 200 rounds. Sent it back to SIG and they replaced the extractor springs. Gun ran fine after that, but it left a bad taste in my mouth considering my 7 short extractor guns had never malfunctioned.

I will admit that this is probably just a personal thing vs. a huge problem (although I have heard others who had the weak spring problem--I'm assuming SIG is aware and has updated the parts in newer guns). Also, while SIG recommends replacement of the long extractor springs at 20,000 rounds, I have seen posts from multiple shooters who had malfunctions start at around the 8,500 mark, so personally I would treat long extractor springs as a 5,000 round part to be safe.
