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'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.
