P210A guide rod spring

Need a little help.
Today when I removed the guide rod and spring from my p210a target( new american version) the spring and round bushing that holds the spring on came off of the rod .

Is this supposed to happen ? For some reason Im drawing a blank on this and dont remember if there was something else at the end of the rod holding the bushing ans spring on.
How are we supposed to replace that spring ?

I would really appreciate it if someone could take a closeup pic of the end of the guide rod and send it to me at [email protected].

Also -- Sig doesnt list any springs or other parts for the p210 -- I dont see it or any other related parts listed on the site.

Any info appreciated.
Right now Im hesitant to put it back together .

I checked mine. It appears that the end of the rod may actually be a screw with two flats that screws into the end of the guide rod to secure the bushing and recoil spring. I've not tried to disassemble mine, but it appears it may be designed such that it could be disassembled, or possibly work loose, unscrew and fly off.

I know of no factory or aftermarket parts available for these guns. I suspect you'll need to contact SIG.

Anyone who owns this pistol -- take care whenever taking that assembly out and make sure you dont end up losing that piece.

EEK! we've all been there probably more than once. Field strip a new to us gun and boom.... springs and small parts get launched in to space.

Keep us posted how Sig responds with replacement parts and pricing.

Checked mine to see if that guide rod end is tight or not. It is tight. It looks like you do not need to disassemble this very often - maybe lock-tited at the factory ?

Also interested to see what Sig does for you. I hope they send you a new part pronto.

I literally just got back from the range this afternoon and took my new P210A down for a cleaning. The round washer/bushing at the end of the spring guide rod fell out upon dissassembly. I called sig and they knew right away what it was, said it was a bad batch of parts... they are sending me a new complete recoil spring assembly in the mail.

On mine I can see that the screw broke off inside the end of the guide rod. Everything was fine and the gun shot and ran awesome.... until I took it apart.

Go to: www.SIG210.de - ... vom Profi für den Profi and search under "SIG P210 Tuning". Here you will find several recoil spring/guide combos, one a kit with several different springs for fine tuning and different calibers. I have the Art.-Nr 250 for my Swiss-made 210-6 and can say there is a slight recoil-felt improvement. There are a lot of other goodies/spare parts as well-check out the whole site. Unfortunately only in German but the fotos are good and plenty. Happy hunting!

Can someone please post a picture of one with a screw or endcap? I talked to Sig and the rep said that there isn't a screw at the end of the guide rod on the one he had. Mine does not either - just a small dimple at the end of the guide rod - although, with a magnifying glass, that dimple looks like a sheared of screw.

Thank you, bearone2. That is awesome. Like the OP, the 210 I have is the new, US version.

guide rod spring

Does this help? When I pull back the bushing, the butt end of the guide rod appears to be made in to the end of the rod.
Mine is a 210 A Target manufactured in USA, 8/2018.

Hody905, thank you so much, that is exactly what I needed to see. It confirms that mine, too, has a sheared off end cap. Looks like another call to Sig tomorrow...

Still Waiting

Just an update: over a month of waiting and I still haven't received a replacement guide-rod. Further, Sig has told me they do not know when they well get more. So much for Sig US's attempt to continue the reputaion of Swiss watch precision. With less than 300 rounds down the pipe and having a failure such as this, seems like a pretty epic fail, to me.

So after calling Sig about the initial failure where the end of the guide rod had broken off I had to send the whole pisol to Sig for investigation.
They ended up replacing the guide rod assembly with a new one and turned it around pretty quickly. I had the gun back about two weeksafter I sent it.

Unfortunately I had the same part break again a few weeks ago.
I havent sent contacted them yet about it , honestly I am extremely disappointed with the new SIG company. They just dont seem to want their customers to be happy. I understand that failures happen but they dont make any effort to address those failures.

Why cant I buy a steel extractor for my guns that have had the mim extractor fail ?

Why cant I buy a replacement recoil spring assembly for my p210 ?

Why did I need to send my m400 predator in and be without the gun for a month to have the trigger assembly replaced for a recall instead of them sending me the new trigger assembly ?
Why cant I buy a replacement legion grip panel to replace the panel on my legion where the medallion fell off ?


Im my opinion Sig today is just living off of their previous reputation for quality.

I still love my Sig firearms and will continue to purchase Sigs because even though I do not think they are anywhere near the quality they once were I still like them better than most of the competition.

Its like buying a Harley, you know its not really the best quality but you just love the look, the sound and when it does work it is a beautiful thing.
