Sig P220 Elite SAO 10mm Hammer Login/Join

Just picked up my 10mm from the LGS. It's used, looks clean, barrel is bright, no cosmetic flaws, racks fine, slide is a bit hard to release but that's expected. There is one thing I have to question though, I dry fired and the hammer strikes but it rests about 1/8 off the back of the pin and vibrates for a split second. There's also a little side to side play. I got out my 1911 and dry fired it to compare and the hammer stays firmly on the pin.

It's my first 10mm so is it exhibiting normal hammer movement or is there a problem?

thanks

Sounds all normal to me. The fact that the hammer sits back from the firing pin is a SIG safety feature. There is a hammer rebound spring that pulls the hammer back after decocking or dry firing. The sear then rests in the hammer safety intercept notch in the event the gun is dropped.

I agree that it is the normal SIG hammer functioning.




Dear Karma, I have a list of people you missed.

I have had folks at pistol shoots ask me (while I was not at the firing line) if the SIG in my holster was at half cock, which it is not. I briefly explain the SIG rebounding hammer and intercept notch to them.



all your sig are belong to us
