You're not doing anything the slide doesn't do when you shoot it...there is the slightest of chance that thumb cocking the hammer might put side torque to it but it should be low on the list of worries with your SiG...enjoy!!!

just don't forget & lower the hammer with your thumb, use the de-cocker.

Thanks for the replies. My wife got me this gun as an anaversary gift four or so years ago. Up until that point I had never shot or owned a hand gun. Since I have gotten the pistol I have read, watched and listened to everything I could to better my knowledge about the Sig and shooting in general. Somewhere along the line, I came across the statement about manually cocking the hammer weakens springs. It struck me odd but what do I know? So that is why I asked the question. Thanks again.

even if it did eventually, springs are cheap
