Spring is rated for full strength ammo. If your shooting ammo on the weaker side of spec, like generic FMJ you may have issues with a new spring. It will wear/weaken eventually, Sig will mail you a weaker spring also.
Thanks for the tip. I think I'm going to hold off until the next time I go the range. The issue only happened when my friend was shooting it so it may very well be caused by him hitting the slide stop with his thumb while firing.
As far as I know this comes in a plastic case like all other SIGs.
That information is incorrect. I bought this exact gun from PSA this past summer. It comes in a cardboard box. I've also joined two different Sig enthusist forums and this is how it and many other Sig pistol models are shipping now.
Not as much of a con as you'd think. Plano plastic pistol cases, easily as nice as what you'd get from the factory, regularly go on sale for <$10 from Amazon. I wanted a soft pistol case with extra pockets for mags, a cleaning kit and other accessories anyway. Got the UTG tactical messenger bag for about $25 and it's miles better than any plastic case.
As others have said, it comes with a single magazine (10 rounders for guns shipped to California FFLs) and contrast sights. Note these are the Heinie-style post and dot contrast sights, not the more common three dot variety. I take issue with another poster who said they suck. They are no more or less precise than any other contrast sight, they're just different than the three dot variety I'm used to. It took a few mags to truly get used to them. Night sights are much better than any contrast sights if you intend to use this as a home defense weapon.
Sig factory mags are indeed expensive and it really defeats the purpose of a semi-auto handgun if you don't have at least two. But you do have a couple of options. Mec-Gar makes aftermarket SP2022 mags that cost about $30 and accept one additional round than the factory Sig mags. I've read from numerous sources that Mec-Gar makes the factory mags for Sig anyways, so I have no doubt these are reliable.
I bought four "like new" Sig factory mags from two different sellers after haunting the classified ads on the Sig enthusiast forums. I paid an average of $20 shipped for each and if they weren't brand new and flawless, I sure couldn't tell.
I reload and my 2022 has never fired anything but 115 gr FMJ 9mm rounds loaded with powder charges on the light end of the handloading spectrum. I have never had any issues whatsoever with the "full strength" spring handling these lighter loads. Maybe I just got lucky, but if you encounter issues, just use heavier rounds for the first couple of hundred firings until the gun is properly broken in. This model has a very well-deserved reputation for extreme reliability with a wide variety of ammunition types.
As others have pointed out, this is a DA/SA hammer-fired weapon, as is typical on full sized, non-striker fired handguns. The first shot DA trigger pull is heavy, partially by design. You can get around this by manually cocking the hammer. But at any rate, you're in SA mode after that and the SA trigger on this weapon is absolutely world class. One of the best out there and a major selling point of this gun.
The bore axis on the Sig SP2022 is higher than a Glock and most striker fired pistols. Some feel it points less naturally. Others feel exactly the opposite. It's such a personal matter that there's really no point in arguing over the merits of one over the other. The Sig is considered very accurate for a stock non-target handgun, But prospective buyers are well-advised to shoot both a striker and a hammer fired weapons to get a feel for what seems more natural to them personally.
PM me if you have any other questions about the Sig SP2022 or PSA; I'll answer them to the best of my ability.
