sig pro 2022 help. nothing but problems

so after much excitement and long wait to get my first sig a sig pro 2022 9mm my hopes and high expectations have been shattered with a disappointing day full of malfunctions, double feeds, stovepipes, but mainly failure to ejects (FTE) resulting in failure to feeds (FTF)....the model is SP20022-9-b with a manufacture date of NOv-2-2011. I am at a loss for words for how unreliable this firearm performed for me today. I need some help and advice.
i put well over 500 rounds through this gun today. not once could i get through a full mag without an issue. NOT ONE MAG... i was shooting 115g fmj from PMC, Winchester, Remington, even Tulaamo.. another few hundred rounds of hand loads both 115g and 124g... it didn't seem to matter what i put threw this gun. FMJ, hollow point EVERYTHING jammed and had failure to eject... i ltried everything i could think of to troubleshoot what could be causing this problem. i stripped the gun. i tried cleaning, lubing, re cleaning, running it dirty. tired it with more lube, with less lube. nothing seemed to work... now dont get me wrong this 2022 is and awesome gun and i have seen nothing but great reviews of this gun. it feels nice in the hand, and it shoots damn well too, but i could never get more than 5-8 rounds at most through the gun without a problem. most of the time it would happen every time i pulled the trigger, resulting in having pull back, lock the slide, remove the magazine, release the slide, pull back the slide to eject the FTE, put the mag back in and once more load the gun by pulling the slide... i figured at some point it would get some better. it never got better (breaking in period). i swear George Washington could have pulled off more shots with a muzzle loader and stopping to carve a new set of teeth... im sorry guys this has turned more into a rant, i just need to blow off some steam and talk to some other sig owners and see what all you guys n gals might have to say...at this point im just real bummed out with my gun...

You will find answers on this forum

Sorry to hear about your problems. I have a sp2022 9mm manufactured in Sept 2011 and I have had over 300 rounds problem free using WWB and Remington UMC. I believe that there have been other threads on this forum with the same problems so you may search through them and maybe you can find some answers while you wait for some of the more seasoned Sig owners to help. There are a couple of Sig armorers here too. As hard as it may be just be patient and I am sure you can find your answers here. Again I am sorry you are having a dissappointing time with your new Sig. I'm sure once you resolve these issues you will love your 2022.

My SP did the same thing right out the box, called Sig customer service and they sent me a prepaid over night air shipping label, shipped it off on a Saturday, got it back on Friday six days later. Even after UPS lost it for two days!
Wasn't worried. called my customer service rep (when you talk to Sig about warranty work, you'll get his/her direct phone line) he said "Don't worry, if we haven't found you're pistol by tomorrow, I'll personally send you out a new one"
On the report it said the gunsmith polished the feed ramp, no problems since, put about 150 rounds through it since.

I quess you only have the one mag? If so try to get another one to use and go from there like a checklist. It almost def wasnt ammo since you used a variety. Did you lube the slide rails and frame rails pretty good? Is everything ok with the quide rod spring? Any possible small debris in the slide/frame? Im just trying to help eliminate as much as poss

With your slide removed from the gun, slide a shell up and see how tight it is in the extractor. If it is too tight, you might use some sand paper and remove just a little metal... ive had to do it to guns before but not my 2022... just compare it to one that works for tightness.

yeah, something's off kilter here. People have fired 10,000 rounds through this pistol without a single malfunction. It's a good gun. SIG will take care of you.

Hello jony-SIG will take care of you!

Check your mags with disassembly.

Check your slide stop lever assembly.

Check that you are not riding the slide stop lever with your thumb while shooting.

I hate to bring this up but it must be said just in case. I have a SP2022 9mm from September 2011 and it is the best gun I have ever owned. I like it so much that it is my full time conceal carry weapon and I can't imagine the circumstances under which I would part with it.

That being said, when I first started shooting it I realized that I had to be much more diligent about not letting my wrist relax even slightly. When I did relax it, I had the same problems that you described. When I pay close attention to keeping my wrist in a firm position, I have no problems. It wasn't the gun, it was me.

Maybe this is not the case with you but just in case, I thought I should mention it.

You may also have your thumb of your grip hand resting too close to the slide lock, and as the gun recoils, you could inadvertently be hitting it upwards just enough to catch the slide and slow it down enough to cause the problems. Be sure when you grip it that your thumb is facing fully forward. Maybe this will help too.

See I thought that was it too, I shot the gun left handed, right handed, with a high tang grip and low, shot it upside down sideways, had four other guys shoot it all with the same result.
The slide wouldn't luck in the rear position, however it would be jammed in an open position due to the previous round not ejecting, and jamming the following round between the slide...

Thanks for the reassurance guys, I will be contacting the Sig customer service Monday morning when they open and get to the bottom of this

I can also assure its not do to limp wristing we thought that too. Tired firm 100% grip. And for sure my thumbs weren't the issue. I even tried moving them around

so tonight i was playing with a magazine of dummy rounds trying to duplicate the FTE issue, and here is what i think may be going on...broken/worn ejector out (odd because i bought brand new)...i was cycling dummy rounds from a magazine and things were working just fine. the rounds were ejecting with force, springing into the air. then all of the sudden their ejection force got weaker no matter how hard or soft i pulled back on the slide. soon the rounds weren't even leaving the chamber or often staying somewhere just outside the chamber . so i reloaded the magazine to duplicate the results. a single round ejected normally, then bam they were failing to eject.
i popped out the the slide lock pin and took the gun apart to get a better look. thinking maybe there was some sort of debris of what have you. there was nothing that look abnormal. to my eyes at least. this is a brand new gun and my first sig so i only have basic knowledge of these hand guns. nothing looked out of the ordinary. so i reassembled the gun and reloaded the dummy rounds to see if it would happen again. it did but not right a way the first 6 rounds ejected as you would expect them to only to soon find myself in the same predicament, with FTE's... once again thought i would bring this up to see if anyone has witnessed anything like this. i have done some searches on here and other sights. i haven't yet found anything conclusive
