Sig forum denied my application without explanation. First time I applied and they said my email was banned. I emailed and asked them what was up and got no response. I would like to get some more opinions but not sure how to get into that forum.
I agree that it does not look like just wear. Your locking insert appears to be plated. My two blu 226es are not nor does my stainless P220 ST appear to be. Yours sure looks plated, probably "hard chrome" a process often used on parts receiving a beating. I know that Ducati motorcycle cam shafts are hard chrome plated... I had some replaced under warranty due to flaking. Why would you want to take it out and shoot it more..??? It is surely not gonna heal itself. and possibly the hard chrome flakes flying around could damage the locking surfaces on the barrel..???

Whether we realize it or not, warranty coverage is part of the purchase price of the piece. It's like auto insurance, all customers pay, some collect. It is those of us who pay and never collect that pay for those who make a claim. Use your warranty.

Re: SIG Forum...I filled out the online registration minus home address, phone number etc...Never got any response. I have no need and/or desire to join any web based forum that requires me to give a home address and phone number. Screw 'em...why not ask for the combo of my gun safe while they are at it !

In regards to sigforum,they do not like free e-mail address' along with just about everything else. Old Duckman summed them up pretty well. I have also heard rumors about the mental stabilality of the site owner. I would deal with Sig directly. NOW IT HAS BEEN SAID!

I think it is not plating but the phosphate coating that is unique to the p226 combat and mk25 navy, supposed to have "extreme corrosion resistance".
Your point is well taken about their warranty and after one more range session to make sure nothing else fails I think i will send it back. As to SigForum, I agree that the amount of personal information needed is disturbing. I have found a great group of people hear and am better for it. Thx to you all.

Yep. What I meant by run it hard and then call Sig was to see if anything else would go wrong with it and get it all fixed at once that way you would be without it ONCE and not multiple times.

Looks ok to me. I shot new p220 carry a few thousand rounds already and it's showing all those wear marks. I keep it lubed and cleaned, but shooting is a pretty violent activity on the parts. Personally, I think the OP should just let it go unless it is a functional issue. These are guns...tools, right?

Your talking a few thousand rounds and I put 200 through mine, I don't think this is normal wear and tare, look closely at the pic. I will be contacting Sig, Mistakes happen, I am sure they will make things right.

I think the wear on mine leveled out after a few hundred rounds. That is to say, it was rather immediate when the factory finishes wore off. After that, not much more was evident after hundreds more. I say, you can't expect it to be pristine on the inside, especially in that area. It's a gun dude, not a Gucci handbag. Drive her, get her dirty, clean her back up and ride her hard again.

Some of you are not seeing that the plating is actually flaking off. It is not normal friction wear.

This pistol cost more than my Gucci hand bag and it barley fits inside.

Thanks, hopefully they handle this well. All these sig horror stories are freaking me out. Makes me hesitant to spend like $1100 on one.

Well....
I have a success story for you: new 220 Combat: accurate, tight fit and finish, strong extraction, Zero malfunctions with over 500 rounds through it!

Great carry gun, great range gun: I trust new Sigs whole-heartedly!

I own 7 SIGs in various calibers, and I've never had a problem with any of them. There may be a lot of problems with SIGs posted on the various forums out there, but this is kind of the place people seek out when they have problems, and a lot of them only come here because they have problems and are seeking answers. For every horror story about a firearm posted on a forum there are thousands of happy customers who've never had a problem out there.
