Now im debating beacuse the store will credit the price on uses guns if returned in 30 days on if i should get the brand new m11-a1 for $880 or if i should go back to what im more familiar with and get a a compact 1911 from them not sure witch they have a few but thats beside the point

Ive only ever herd good things about these sigs just have some natural feelings of discouragment

I know im not asking any real question but any feedback would be appreciated

Thanks everyone
You could have saved yourself trouble if you consulted this forum before buying. Sig p224s, particularly made in 2013 (mostly second half of the year), tend to have this problem. I had it too. Before I fixed it, there would be certain ammo types that it did no like: the truncated cone bullet, but worked reasonably well with round nose flat points. It can potentially be fixed by replacing the extractor with a new one. The one that it was shipped with could be moved by pressing behind the long extractor pivot pin, but not easily, creating resistance to the cartridge as it moves up the ramp. I knocked out the pin on which the long extractor pivots, took out the old extractor, which did not want to come out of the channel and had to be knocked out. That extractor was shaped incorrectly. The new extractor dropped in easily, and now pivots easily around the pin. Now the gun feeds EVERYTHING, regardless of how crappy the ammo is. The p224 is a very nice gun if it works, but the old versions definitely had problems.

I think you are very correct about not being able to have too many SIGs. I am an older shooter who comes from revolver land. I am not try to start a flame war here but when I was young the 1911s from Colt needed a lot of work to even function reliably. I just stuck with revolvers but always wanted "more bullets". Glocks and such didn't do it from me. Not saying they aren't good. They are.

Then I found SIGs, high quality, relatively generous magazine capacity and a manual of arms that totally makes sense to me. I have said this numerous times, but the P224 is the size of a Colt D.S. but holds twice ammo and has better sights and trigger right out of the box. It is a great carry gun. I would not sell mine if I was the O.P.

I know nothing about P224's, in fact I keep forgetting SIG made a model with that name, and I'm sorry to hear about your issues.

But problem number one is that you said you shot WWB through it. WWB quality has gone completely out the window in recent years. No gun, and I mean NO GUN, should be blamed for issues until ammo besides WWB has been run through it. If someone sent me cases of WWB I would throw it in the garbage can or give it to someone who didn't care about their firearms. That is not an exaggeration. I won't even use it for plinking ammo. If I were king, ISIS would carry WWB as their standard issue ammo.

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your P224. I also have a P224 in .40 and use WWB. I have never had a problem with mine. I know not everyone likes it, but really like it.

Buy the M11 A1 and don't look back. You never know what you're dealing with in a used weapon.

I have a 224 in 9mm that was having some FTE issues. Even with that it is one of my favorites in my collection. If its something that can be fixed, I would suggest it since it is discontinued and not something you could easily get in the future.

I'm sorry to hear of your frustrations. I know it sucks to buy a gun only to have it malfunction on you. I think if you decide to go with the M11 you'll be happy, but I would also encourage you to handle a few models. As mentioned, the P239 and P225 are fantastic pistols for CC, but you may want to have a look at a HK P30. The ergonomics on this gun are superb, and it is very reliable. Other Sig models I would recommend are the P229 and a P220 compact. Good luck with it!

I love mine in 9mm. Carry it more than any other. never an issue.

Frustrating when a gun doesn't work correctly. I usually don't give up on a gun that has an issue with the gun itself, I just fix the problem. It's usually me that has the issue is why the gun has to go

I like my P224 so much that I secured a 9mm and 357sig barrels for it as well as better sights. I have no hesitation to carry it when it fits my mood.

I will second this. As an RSO WWB was the number one ammo problem particularly in 9MM.
Oddly the cases aren't any better to reload.
I actually go through all the range brass and remove 9MM WIN cases. The crimp is too big and in my Dillon SQDB primers do not seat and cause me to stop and remove the case and then remove the crimp if I want to use it. Defeats the bulk loading philosophy.
I also remove WMA and YVX for the same reason. All other crimped brass does not require the extra work.
Sorry for the sidetrack, just saying test with something more reliable.
Don't judge a pistol by WWB
