I am having an issue with my Sig 290 and light strikes. This is a known issue with some of the earlier guns but mine is a newer manufacture well past when all those problems were supposedly fixed. (My first 290 had the problem, was returned to Sig 3 times and finally the gun was replaced by Sig with this new one). In 400 rounds, I have had 7 light strike failures... 4 of them in the last 40 rounds.
Now, granted, it has happened only with one obscure brand of ammo but I have fired 500 rounds of that same ammo with 4 or 5 other 9mm guns without any problems whatsoever... only had problems with the Sig. The Sig has fired all other brands that I have tried so far without problems.
So before I send it back with a new complaint, I want to try a couple more brands of commonly available ammo that are known to have hard primers.
I don't know 'fer sure' but I would guess that NATO surplus and maybe products that use CCI primers might be candidates to try. What about S&B, Fiocchi or Privi Partizan? Any others to try?
What are your recommendations and what basis do you have arriving at that conclusion?
all answers appreciated
