I shoot a lot of rounds through my Sig P220 during the year. But now, I'm shooting a .22lr Browning Buck Mark over the winter.

Yesterday, while handling my P220, I noticed the trigger wasn't resetting. Closer inspection showed it was the hammer that wasn't resetting. If I dry fired the gun, the trigger would not rest, but if I touched or tapped the hammer, the trigger would reset, as would the hammer.

Tore down the gun and found the culprit! Broken hammer rest spring. Glad I keep a spare parts kit on hand!

In my experience a broken P220 hammer reset spring is the most common parts failure in SIG Classic line pistols. Fortunately it’s not a critical failure, but it’s definitely a good idea to have spares.

That’s good to know. I’ve broken a few trigger bar springs, but this was a first.

Several years ago I had multiple springs from TGS. By multiple, I mean several of each spring I the gun. I’m going through my kit to make sure I still have several of each.

I have many parts for my 229s. So far, the only time I've needed any is when I have dropped a small part and it does a vanishing act.

I still need to get spare parts for my 320s, and then 365 when they become available.

I will not reveal how much money I have willingly given TGS for spare parts. That said I should inventory. Am due for some hammer springs to be replaced. I suspect that it will cost me more but find if I have a part I don’t need it and if I don’t I for sure will need it, is a universal law
