I'm a new 1st time Sig owner as of earlier this week. Was researching the p226 for a while and pulled the trigger on an E2.
I've been dry firing it a lot and have been itching to get to the range.
Today I was able to put 200 rounds down the pipe. No failures. The gun is awesome. Feels great, little recoil and accurate. My bro in law was loving this gun too.
About 100 rounds in I started noticing that the slide wouldn't lock back on empty, at all. This was happening with both factory Sig mags. I was shooting 115 gr Federal Estate Ammo.
I use an agressive thumbs forward grip. I heard that this might be the problem.
I tried to get grip lower but I was still experiencing the issue.
Is this common for anyone else?

I would remove the slide then insert an empty mag in the well. As you do, look at the tab on the inside of the slide release lever and make sure that it is fully and consistently engaging the notch on the mag follower and lifting the lever up into the slide locking position. With a little pressure, manipulate the parts (mag, follower, catch lever) around to ensure that the lever tab and mag follower engagement is maintained.
