I have seen two Sig 210A pistols drop a round when a round is chambered and a loaded magazine is removed. What causes this?

Do you mean you have seen the pistol discharge the round?

This would be the first I’ve ever heard of this on an older pistol design…

Do you routinely drop p210s or just for fun?

I believe the friction of the bottom of the slide moving over the top round causes the round to move forward slightly. When the magazine is removed, the tip of the round catches on the feed ramp and gets stripped from the magazine.

Exactly.... Mine does this and it's annoying as hell to clear the gun after a Match Stage and a round falls out.

P220 also has this issue until they started putting dimples in the side of the mags.

Thanks for the informed, intelligent responses. I was about to buy a 210 A Target and
this issue surfaced.
