The 17rd were shipped dry in a plastic package with cardboard backing, the 15rd shipped in a plastic baggy with the oil everyone else has described. My 15rd mags also only load to 14rds. I finally got one to load up 15rds after exercising the spring...my thumb is still throbbing.
That's sad! Checkmates suuck! That's why I will never order Sig mags online again unless they are willing to verify that "made in Italy" is stamped on the mags. I don't mind cleaning that oil off of a brand new mag it's not a big deal to disassemble the mags. Hot soapy water takes it right off. The Mec-Gar 17 rounders I've got just had a little oil on the spring and a tiny bit on the locking inserts (probably from the spring).

I will say I haven't had a problem with any of my mags so far, Checkmate or Mec-Gar. My only gripe is the difficulty loading the p229 Checkmate mags to full capacity. My USA made p320 mags have worked great so far as well.

That's a well documented problem. I've never had one that wouldn't load all 15 but the last round is tight, so tight that the slide is difficult to rack. Others have never been able to get the 15th round in. I use those mags for range only. I've personally had enough problems with various checkmate mags over the years that I won't trust them for anything other than range or collecting dust in the back of a closet. But that's me. If you search you will find that most experienced Sig people insist on Mec-Gar. I'm one of those people.

Wipe them dry, reload and shoot them. Hot soapy water shouldn't bother decently loaded ammo. Think about mil/le where the rounds get rained/snowed on, soaked etc. my father once fell into a pool fighting with someone. At the end of the day he went to the range, shook his gun to get any water out and fired all five mags with no issues.
