Were do I start? this gun hates WWB it will jam once out of 10 rounds every time, it loves RWS, go figure no jams period. I was thinking maybe it could be the recoil spring,or a maybe needs a different recoil spring, there usually cheap enough to buy and try.

Not positive but I would start with the same spring as the 226 9mm. The 220 and 226 share the same guide rod so I believe the same spring would work. You could call Top Gun Supply and inqiure with them, I'm sure they would be able to assist.

I have a 220 parts kit back at the office if you want to try that. It's not that expensive.

Do you think it could possibly be the spring? I am not saying WWB is low quality ammo, maybe the Sig prefers higher quality, I do know the RWS is supposed to be a better quality ammo, what other reason won't it fire WWB correctly? I have shot different grains of WWB with no help, but "never" a problem with RWS. I'm confused.

My answer was based more on your specific question in your thread title. Yes, it could be the spring, but it could just as easily be an ammo related problem. I have read some rececnt reports of people having difficulty with WWB. I have some on hand but it was purchased prior to the reported problems. I personally have not had any issues with WWB over thousands of rounds. Keep in mind that not all ammo runs through every gun equally, maybe yours doesn't like WWB.
