well i shoot my 220 a lot and it for some reason it jams like 3 times a day of going (150 rounds). I clean it every time going and I use high quality and low quality ammo, jammed on both usually. I have 2 mags. I Have the first one it comes with.... made by sig and I have an after market one... it jams on both.

The problem always looks as if the bullet flips while going into the chamber.... like it will be vertically jammed and I just open the slide and let it out.....

so far i love my sig and its accurate (i need to shoot better without jerking it) but it jams even tho jamming isnt hard to fix it gets pesky

thank you

Does it jam when chambering a round or does it fail to extract the fired round?

If it jams while chambering, I would try a brand spanking new magazine.

If it fails to eject, I would have a smith check the extractor.

Does your feedramp look smooth, rough, damaged, or otherwise?


ETA: You wouldn't happen to have CLP or some other lubricant oozing out of every crack and crevice would you? Someone once brought me their gun on the range and said it kept jamming. I could have just about cleaned my pistol with all the CLP dripping off of his gun. Also added another thing for the OP to look at.

Clean the mags and pistol well, blast out the slide with Carbon Blast. Lube well and try it again. If it still does it, it may need new mag springs and or a recoil spring.

five will get you ten that your mag spring is worn out on your factory mag and your aftermarket is a promag. Get some novak mags from topgunsupply.com, and if that doesn't do it get a new recoil spring from Wolfe, but I bet that if the gun is in fact cleaned and lubed right then your mag springs are worn out. Never never never buy a promag magazine, they are trash.

You should also be able to buy new springs for your old mags.
