Nervous 1st day with new P220
So, I went to the range today to send the first rounds through my new Sig.
First of all, I was very pleased with how well I shot with it, and I'm looking forward to getting better as I get used to the gun.
However, I had TWO failures to fire! I was surprised, given the Sig Sauer legacy of reliability. I have some ideas, but I'd like to get some feedback from experienced folks like yourselves.
1. The first was with 230 gr .45 ACP out of a non-Sig tactical mag.
2. The second was after I switched to .22 LR
I am a first time gun owner, and there may be a simple solution that I just don't know about. Resources for rookies like me would be handy.

You may need an updated 22mag,the are a problem with the conversions. The 45 is another story and maybe the wrist got a bit limp.
Anyhow work it you will not be disappointed, and reward are comming.

When you say this, do you meant the firing pin hit the primer, or in the case of the .22 the rim, and the round did not fire?
Or is this an Issue of failure to feed, which is where the round is not picked up properly by the mag and put into the chamber.

I've found that Sig mags work well with Sigs others don't always work well. The only other mag that I have used in my Sigs besides Sigs are the MEC-GAR, and I've had no problems with them.

I can't remember the name, but I bought some non-Sig mags once for a P220 I had years ago. Since then, it has been nothing but Sig mags for me. Those mags looked like quality mags, felt like quality mags, but they continuously cause FTFeed's.
I'd suggest that your .45 failure was either mag or limp wrist induced, just as everyone else has said.
I have nothing to offer on the .22

Also make sure you aren't limp-wristing when firing.
I just took my 220C3 w/beavertail and factory mags. to the range today and put 50 flawless rounds of .45 through it.
