SP2022 slide getting stuck

Hello from Seattle! I just got my first handgun (SP2022 9mm) and noticed that when the clip is not in--the slide moves back and forth freely. When the clip is inserted--the slide lock lever moves up slightly which makes the slide lock when pulled back. I haven't shot it yet and I made sure our thumbs were not inadvertantly hitting the slide lock. I noticed a tiny spring when I stipped down the gun that looked like it was supposed to keep the slide lock lever down...was wondering if I needed to tweak/bend it down a tad to keep it from popping up when the clip is inserted. Is this a normal thing that I just never realized? I've shot many other guns including Sigs and don't remember this being an issue, but I am a newbie as an owner. Thanks!

When you move the slide back on your pistol with qan empty magazine inserted...the magazine follower pushes up your slide stop...it is supposed to do this on your last shot...a last indicator that you need to insert a new magazine and you are empty...This is normal...enjoy your new pistol...

Ah--you're right...when a full clip with ammo is inserted the slide stop lever doesn't move up like when it is empty. Thanks Bill for helping a newbie out! :P

Not to be a stickler, but its called a magazine. Clips are what were used in guns such as an M1 Garand (AKA a bandolier I believe).

And I'm from seattle too. We should go shoot sometime

Silversport,
Love the grips on your gun. Where did you get them?
Thanks.

the grips on the pistol in the avatar are Nills...that pistol is a P220 Ernest Langdon...all stainless construction (slide and frame) with Dawson Precision Fiber Optic front sight and a Warren Tactical rear sight...it was made by SiG to commemorate Ernest Langdon's success with his P220...I am thinking of adding a front night sight as I don't really see the advantage of the front F.O. currently on the pistol...Thanks!...

I guess I'm going off of the dictionary definition: Clip - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary and not what some "gun aficionados" define as such.

Didn't realize what a hot button topic "clip" vs. "magazine" was until looking it up online--hahaha!! Some people must have a lot of time on their hands to debate such a pointless (in my opinion) topic. :P But I guess if you're super into the hobby I can see how you can get caught up in the details...I'm probably a little like that with guitar.

Thanks everyone for the advice--definitely felt like a noob after the whole slide question...but I guess I AM a noob...and everyone was at one point.

There's nothing wrong with being a noob. Everyone is/was at one point in time or another.

As far as clip vs magazine debate, imho its not really a debate. There are distinct differences between the two. Its not difficult to see how/why they are misinterpreted by new shooters or people new to firearms in general. When I joined the Marine Corps, I called a magazine a "clip" and... my Drill Instructor "fixed" me lol. Never gotten them mixed up since.

Here's a more concise definition. It may just be a hobby now, but you are part of a Sig forum, so might as well learn.

I see what you're talking about with the whole clip thing now....just funny to me how people can get really bent out of shape (not you, but others I've seen online) about something that can really be considered a "slang" term derived from WW2 vets. It's like correcting someone for saying "nice wheels" when they technically mean "nice car as a whole"...sure the "wheels" alone are not technically what they're referring to, but that's what I love about language and vernacular (Got to use a big word--woo hoo! :P) True this is a Sig forum and now I have learned the technical definition....but that's not going to stop me from referring to a magazine as a clip when the zombie apocolypse goes down and rounds are flying.

I am having a similar undesired feature, however with slightly different behaviour:

Will not cock:
1) Mag in, loaded, held in right hand, pushing straight back with left hand (no lateral pressure on slide)
2) Mag in, unloaded, held in right hand with left on slide, pushing slightly back and out (left palm pressure on slide)

Difficult to Cock:
3) Mag in, loaded, held in right hand, pushing straight back while pulling towards body with left fingers (left finger pressure on slide)

Will cock:
3) Mag in, unloaded, held in right hand, pushing straight back while pulling towards body with left fingers (left finger pressure on slide)
4) Mag out, any configuration.

Slide lock performs as expected.

"gun aficionados"???? That's not the proper term now is it......



I prefer "gun nuts" The "gun nuts" at work NEVER say clip

If you haven't already, I would break the whole pistol down, inspect the rails, take the spring out ect. Lube your rails, put it back together and see if that helps.
