Is it just the lube? Login/Join 
I picked up a used P229 today that was completely dry (not dirty, just dry). I tried to load it but it would jam on HP or FMJ using the slide release. Without the slide or ammo it would rack if I pulled back all the way, but if I only pulled it part way it would bind and not go into battery. I then oiled the heck out of it and everything seems to be working fine now. Did it just need lube or should I keep looking for any issues?

Yes, it was most likely just the lube. Sigs like ARs like to be run wet.

I've seen this a few times with friends' guns.

It just needed lube.

As Bruce Grey sez:

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

If your weapon has a lot of use or is older you might consider replacing the recoil spring. Also a good cleaning if not regularly done.
