Sig Auto Pistols Test Quiz Questions - P210/P220 Series
I am semi-retired and I am taking a self-passed and self-taught Armorers course on Sig Auto Pistols. I hope to become a part-time light Gunsmith in the future.

There are over 60 quiz questions covering this firearm and I have answered most of them. During my study and research I am having some problems related to some of the following quiz questions. Either I am not sure of the correct answer or I have conflicting answers.

Can you help me determine the correct answers for these few final 5 quiz questions? Please correct any wrong answers!

Thanks for your help.

Note #13. After the firing pin retaining pin (firing pin positioning pin) is driven out what part must come out next in order to get the firing pin out of the slide?
a) The extractor
b) The ejector
c) The firing pin blocking safety (safety lock)
d) All of the above


Note #14. In order to take the locking insert (locking block) out of the frame, what part must come out first?
a) The trigger
b) The takedown lever
c) The decocking lever
d) The hammer strut pin

Note #15.The notches in the trigger pivot pin must face in what direction to allow the locking insert (locking block) to go back into the frame properly?
a) Up
b) Down
c) Towards the muzzle end of the frame
d) Towards the hammer end of the frame
e) It does not matter

Note #16. What part provides tension (or energy) to the hammer?
a) The recoil spring
b) The mainspring
c) The hammer reset spring
d) The decocking lever spring
e) None of the above

Note #17. What does the hammer reset spring (rebound spring) actually do?
a) Provides the hammer with enough energy to fire a cartridge
b) Cocks the hammer for a follow up shot in single action
c) Pushes the hammer back to allow the disconnected sear to engage in the safe notch of the hammer
d) All of the above

I didn't want to take the challenge away from y'all. I see Hoppy70 has highlighted the answers.

Happy Memorial Day to my Brothers and Sisters.

Sig P-Series Armorer's DVD
 
For those wishing to become familiar with the inter workings of their Sig P-Series pistols, I highly recommend a DVD available from Top Gun Supply which shows the proper way to disassemble and reassemble your weapons. The video shows Chris Orndorff, a Certified Sig Armorer, performing a complete detail stripping using many of the techniques taught in the Sig Armorer's classes. Useful for the P220, P225, P226, P228, P229, P230, P232, P239 and P245.

Here's a link to the DVD: Sig Sauer Armorer's Course DVD - P SERIES - Top Gun Supply

Well now. I seems that I had all the correct answers! What have I won?

BTW, thanks for the link.

hmm... i should pick up this dvd.

Note #13c is not a correct answer. Once the FPPP is removed, the firing pin block must be depressed to release the firing pin to remove it. You can then remove the firing pin block and its associated spring. You reverse the process, installing the firing pin block and associated spring, depressing it so the firing pin can be installed with the "slots" up toward the top of the slide and once the firing pin is in far enough, releasing the block, which will hold the firing pin in the slide. Then the FPPP can be installed.

Note #15b isn't correct, either. I'll let someone else tell why.

Sig Marine 05-29-2012 07:36 PM

Gerry R. is absolutely correct with regards to #13. Unfortunately, some tests are written with answers that are not entirely correct and you're left with guessing the best of the wrong answers.

In the case of #15, the question is obscure. The notches on interior (between the frame) of the trigger pivot pin face differently than the groves (220) or slot (226, 229, etc.) on the trigger pivot pin that are visible on the left side exterior which should be parallel to the frame rails.

Sig Marine, Thanks for the video recomendation. Shawn

I've not done a frame disassembly yet on my 229 (or any handgun) but plan to soon for thorough cleaning (2k round count coming up).

The exterior "notch" on my trigger pivot pin came from the factory in the horizontal position. Am I correct to think that the notch will need to be positioned in the "vertical" for the interior pivot pin notches to clear the trigger assy for removal?

GerryR 05-30-2012 03:29 AM

The exterior "notch," which is just a screwdriver slot, is horizontal with the locking insert installed. Once the take-down lever is removed (make sure the hammer is de-cocked), lift the front of the locking insert first, and then the whole insert out of the frame. You will notice that the screwdriver slot of the pivot pin is left in about a 10 o'clock position. This is where you want it when you go to reinstall locking insert.

Does the pivot pin rotate to the "10 o'clock" positions as a result of removing the locking insert? Or does it have to be turned to that position in order to remove the locking insert.

GerryR 05-30-2012 06:35 AM

It rotates there as a result of the insert removal. When reinstalling the insert, start at the 10 o'clock position, and as the insert goes in, the pin rotates back to horizontal. (Sometimes a little help is needed with a small screwdriver to rotate the pin as you push on the insert.) The slots in the pin that fit into the slots in the insert are facing forward at an angle. Examine the pin, while in the frame, very closley once the insert is removed, and it will be obvious. When you get them both out and on the bench, slip the pin in the insert to get a good feel for what is happening.

If, by chance, you should put the pin in backwards (slots toward the back) and manage to get the insert back in, you will not be able to get the takedown lever back in (a hint that the pin is backwards!). It is tough to get the insert back out again, once in the wrong way, but be patient, it will come back out when everything is oriented "properly," without force that could damage the frame.

For those not familiar with GerryR, he is one of the premier gunsmiths in the country, should you desire to have trigger work done on your Sig, and highly recommended by those who have used his services.
