I'm also interested in the little Sig. It would replace my current single stack 9's if it works. I saw the video you are referencing... there was a thread on it. I (and may others) think it was an ammo problem- out of spec ammo. (cheap, yes but that wasn't the issue. I believe it was a few thousandths long) They never tested another round, never measured a round or did anything but keep stuffing mags into it. Taking a known failure and repeating it for the camera. They should have just hit a 320 with a hammer and made it drop fire!Abraham wrote:flechero,
Thanks, I'm very interested in this gun, but it'll take a year before I buy one, unless: I see lots and lots good reports. Let others be beta testers. Even after that time, you can still find guns that aren't reliable, but after a year or so of being on the market, if flaws show up and Sig fixes them before they're for sale, great. I just don't want to go through the returning of a gun to the factory so it'll work properly.
I watched a YT video regarding the Sig 365 and man it did NOT like the 115 grain round nose FMJ's.
How so: It often wouldn't go into all the way into battery.
The video was pooh poohed on a Sig forum, but I saw it over and over not go into battery.
How do you argue with that?
The Sig guys knocked the video from a number of perspectives, one being the shooters used cheap ammo.
Please, most of us don't use premium, that is to say high dollar ammo for range practice.
The Sig guys are diehard fans and will not hear of one of their precious guns being criticized...
My post following the video you referenced:
My local academy has had and sold 7 of them already but not when I have been there! I really want to hold one and see if it fits my hand comfortably. (that's top of my list for the NRA convention)flechero wrote:My experience with magtech was bad... so bad that I wouldn't shoot it again if it were given to me. All those FTRB could have been a simple OAL issue with the ammo.
It would have been nice to see them try it with different ammo... or at least mix in a box of anything else since the one guy said it was 50% failure. The fact that they didn't change ammo makes their test a waste of time and money for me. It only proves that the gun won't run with that variety of magtech ammo.
I'll run it hard if I buy one, knowing the reviews have been good but not universal.
