Sig P210 Legend Problem

I have a new Sig P210 Legend with six magazines.

The problem
After the last round is fired the slide would sometimes lock back and some times it would NOT.

This problem started the very first day I picked it up and went to the range. The odd part was some of the magazines were locking back the slide more ofen that others.

So I called and talk to the guys at Sig… They offered to have Fed Ex pick up the P210 and ship it back at N/C for service. I'm a bubblegum & baling wire type guy so when cleaning it today I put a magazines with the slide was off, and after playing around I could see what the problem was.

I then took apart all the magazines and measured the springs… some were 6.8” and some were 7” and another was 7.5”.

The Fix:
I took all the springs and stretched them out to 9”… No more problems.

Very odd they would opt for such a cheap spring in such a great shooting gun.

O-By-The-Way at 75 feet standing free-hand 8 shots 4” group and at 45' if’s the stuff.

Here is a link to my first 45' target.

Hope this helps the next guy.

Very nice target. I have been thinking of getting one of those. I really want an older one, but I'll take a new one.

glad it worked but not a good idea to stretch springs.
