Sig Virtus Spring Plate question
Hello, new owner of a Sig Virtus Patrol. When I went to clean and lube my new rifle I noticed the spring plate or the back plate of the carrier which holds the recoil rods in place was made out of plastic. My Rattler upper has the recoil plate that is made out of metal.
Is this correct on the new Virtus rifles to have this piece made out of plastic? I thought this was something Sig had updated. Are the Virtus’ plastic and the Rattlers metal?
Thanks for any help!

Well that’s a huge bummer.... kind of what I figured. The rifle was manufactured July 2020. Brand spanking new.... How in the world did they give me an old part on a brand new rifle... pretty disappointed in sig right now.
I’ll call sig Monday. Are these things time bombs? Or is it safe to shoot until I get the updated part?

The new ones are metal and pinned. I liked the older design that allowed you to fully disassemble carriage. Try to find the MCX Radian CH that comes with metal replacement. I don’t think Radian makes that particular 2 piece CH Any longer but it was the tits.
