LCI BROKE ON P229-GUN JAMMED Login/Join 
Junior Member
posted
Today my P229 Enhanced Elite jammed and I couldn't clear it with the usual Tap and Rack. A piece of the LCI broke off and apparently jammed the weapon. I took the magazine out, and when I reinserted it the gun went back into battery and it worked fine for the rest of the day (although the LCI wouldn't pop up).

Anyone else have this issue? Thank you

Welcome to the forum.

What’s an “LCI”?

OP you must be in California. Sig did an absolutely terrible job with the LCI to make the pistol CA compliant. Do yourself a favor and drive the pin out that holds the LCI in. It is just a simple roll pin. The reason why it won't pop back up is because it moved or something else moved the return spring out of the recess.

They are special runs made too order. It rarely works well. One of the reasons the NHSP P220's had issues is due to all of the special requirements placed on the bid. In the end it didn't work and they went with the M&P.

I’m curious about the California requirement. Is a hole in the top of the barrel hood extension to see if a round is chambered not sufficient?

Unfortunately the overlords of the state of California have determined that brass showing is nowhere near enough. I'm on mobile so I can't post any pictures but there is a huge LOADED WHEN UP billboard on the top of the slide.

I've seen the indicator that sticks up, but wasn't sure what the California requirements were.

OP, welcome to the forum.

If you are in CA, MA or another location with state government mandated requirements, you may want to either put the state (CA, MA, etc.) in your profile Location or mention it when referencing an issue in a post.

This forum is one of the best. There are a lot of members willing to provide knowledgeable responses to member posts. The more info provided, the better and faster the responses.
