I found this forum while looking around for discussions and info on my SIG 2022. I have one in 9mm, one of the older ones from what I'm coming to understand, since the frame was made in Germany. I got it back around Christmas because I finally wanted to own a handgun. I'm new to SIG, my only real pistol experience coming from the Beretta M9s that I've shot back at West Point.
Being new to SIGs, and knowing their reputations as outstanding firearms, I was needless to say excited to get to start shooting it. However, my first experience with it at the range was a bit of a disappointment, because the SIG jammed about every three or five rounds. There were a few times where I was able to shoot through a full magazine without it jamming, but that only happened once or twice. I fired using both the 10 and 15 round mags that came with it, with the same result.
I'm not sure if it's just that the mag springs need to be replaced, if the gun just needs to be broken in (I only fired 100 rounds through it that day), or what. I've done a lot of research, but I'd like to hear what you guys have to say on the matter.

Did you get the pistol new or used?
What type of jam were you experiencing? FTF, FTE
All cleaned and lubed properly?
There are so many potential causes for jams that any additional info would be helpful.

I bought it new. It was cleaned and lubed properly, but since it was brand new, I think there was some residue left from the factory coating. I was having failure to feed, where the round would sometimes get caught against the feed ramp, and failure to eject jams, even a few stove pipe jams.
If there's any other info I can provide, please ask!

What type of ammo?
Magazines fully inserted?
These may seem like silly questions but sometimes a light bulb starts to shine.
Sometimes weak ammo will not allow for the slide to get full cyling and could cause that type of issue. My first recommendation would be to try a variety of ammos and put some more rounds down the range. While many require no break in at all, some do need to have the slide cycle some before all works smoothly. If you do see a difference in performance with an ammo switch, that may be the problem.

I do know I was using some Remington 9mm Para rounds. Standard ball ammo. I'm not sure what the powder load on them was, though. I do intend to get some more trigger time on my SIG though here soon. I've been away at the Academy since Christmas, so I don't get to shoot it all that often.
The mags were fully inserted and seated as well. Maybe there's some of the factory oil residue on the mag springs and followers that are causing them to stick and not feed properly?
Part of me thinks that maybe this is just some of the teething problems that the SIG has for a break-in period. I know the SIG Pro FAQ that I found stated that sometimes it takes around 500 rounds or so for the SIG Pros to break in fully. But then again, I pulled a S&W M&P9 right out of the box and fired 300+ rounds through it without a single jam...
I also switched the grips on it last night to the medium grip, thinking that maybe I was limp wristing the pistol. I'm not sure though, since I've not had this problem with any other pistol I've fired so far. I do like how the medium grip feels compared to the large grip regardless.

If you can find it, I have found Fiocci to be a little hotter than average. I have not shot a whole lot of Rem so it's had for me to give an assesment of that loading. I usually shoot reloads that are generally on the upper side of the range.

i have a brand new sp 2022 out the blue my slide lock up and refused to move. i send the gun back to sig they replaced the slide and barrel a week later the same problem now they tell the frame is out specs and the needs to be replaced not a good feeling i could no longer trust the gun.

Well, I definitely still trust the gun due to SIG's reputation and I still love it. I'm going to remain dedicated to it until I iron the problem out, as I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do with the right expertese and help. As for the Fiocci loads, I'll see what I can do and when I go back to the range in the next week or so, I'll let you know what load the Remingtons are firing and how the pistol performs then.

Mine is the new style 2022. I have put 500+ rounds of Remington UMC 115 FMJ, and a few Golden Sabre 124 +P with no issues at all.
It is due for it's first cleaning tonight for more shooting this Sunday. Mine has performed out of the box better than I could have imagined, mainly because I am also new to Sig, and I did not know their reputation.
Knowing how these pistols perform, I too would be looking at ammo as the culprit.

I've not had any problems with my 2022, either, but Cadet's problems sound to me like a magazine issue. I had a similar problem with the 238 and it was magazine related, though I did clean the gun well and then do a quick polish of the feed ramp too. A new magazine and the polish did the trick with no more problems.

Believe me you can still trust your gun.
We have 5 Sp2022's in my family
A mix of 9 mm & .40 cal.
A mix of American made & Germany.
We've never had any problems with any of them.
They are excellent guns.
You may have a mag problem .. might buy another mag & try it.
Have you talked to Sig Customer Service?
I've heard that they are very helpful.

Same here. I purchased my P2022 from Palmetto and unfortuantely they ship wiothout mags to California. I purchased a magazine from CTD and it is the Italian made one. I ran 500 different loads through it with 0 issues. I plan on running 500 more this weekend.
