    Just got this in my hands over the weekend. I think I'm in love! Anybody else got one that can share their experiences or tips?

    I really like the color finish. And the grips are killer too. Well done.

    Thanks. I love the night sights too. Had it on my night stand last night. I looked up in the night, and had a nice feeling knowing that it was there if needed, as the tritium sights glowed through the night LOL

    Nice review. Nice shooting too. Question: what do you use to lube the slide and barrel?

    Got to the range today to start breaking in the new SIG. I had some of the same issues I've read others were having: only one of the factory mags continued to feed good. I had picked up a Chip McCormick that worked pretty good, but occasionally both of the good mags would give a misfeed. As a quick fix on the range I put a drop of Ultra Lube gun oil on the ramp and around the rim of the chamber, and that solved the problem for today.
    Anybody got a permanent solution?
    Other than that I LOVE this gun. Powerful and accurate! I fired about 200 rounds through it.

    Weird, mine did not have this issue. I would kept it well lubed and shoot the snot out of it until it polished itself out. Beware the dremel, it has destroyed many a gun.

    If the problem persists, contact SIG. They have amazing CS, I sent in a 229 before. With the repair and shipping both ways it was a two week turn around.

    Sounds like good advise :) because that means I HAVE to go back to the range and fire a few hundred more rounds through it :)

    I would also recommend some Wilson ETM mags; I have never had a problem with their functioning.
