Sigs and slide stop lever
« on: June 11, 2019, 09:13:43 AM »
Is it just me, or anyone else ever get driven nuts by the location of the Sig slide stop lever?

It is too far back. I own no Sigs now, but I have owned 7 or 8 of them over the years. It takes a LOT of effort for me to not hit it as I shoot. Then, when the mag is empty, the slide doesn't lock back because of it.

I am fine shooting 1 handed, but this is always a problem for me when shooting with 2 hands. I've kinda just given up on it and accepted the fact whenever I shoot a Sig. You do not usually see other brands mount that lever quite so far to the rear.

I haven't owned a Sig Sauer in many years now, but I can't recall that being a problem. The only one I have now, that is close is my old Astra A100, which for all intents, is copy of the Sig Sauer P226. I have had the pistol since about 1995 or 1996 or so. I bought it used in 9mm for a really great price at the time. I even use to carry it years ago. It's downfall is that it's a very heavy pistol! Might even be heavier than some of my 1911's! One thing i did like was having 17 rounds of ammo in the magazine.

Sad to say, I have several times over the years thought about selling it and getting something else, maybe a little lighter in 9mm to replace it, but every time I do, I always end up backing out and keeping it. For some reason, I know I would regret selling it, even though I very seldom ever shoot it anymore.

I've never shot one of those. I was referring to the 220/224/226/228/229/M11A1, etc. If I remember right, same issue with the Sig Pro.
