refurb my west german 226

tried out my $400 w german 226 today.
fed every time but one time i actually had to eject an empty case
ok maybe it was due to cheap wwb ammo, idk.
the other issues were several failures to lock back on the last round. i know this is likely a mag issue.
but i was wondering what parts are replaced by sig when an old gun is sent in for a refurb.
i saw some parts at wolf like hammer spring for sale. are wolf parts gtg?
thanks

Wolff parts are gtg BUT everything must be done in sync/balance...as you change spring tension one place it most likely will require changes elsewhere. Best to let a experienced SIG gunsmith/armorer do any upgrades in spring rates.

I have been a 1911 shooter for 20 years and have transitioned to my SIGs as of late. I find that my 1911 thumb high ride on the safety does not transition to the SIG system. I find my thumbs frequently making enough contact with the SIG slide stop to keep it from engaging on ejection of the last empty casing.

good info there.
i'm a glock shooter, those have less obtrusive controlls, that might be my issue too

(although with the placement of the SIGís slide release my pistol never locks back on an empty magazine, but thatís another issue).
