It's like going from a Ford Mustang to a Chevy Malibu, they just aren't the same class of vehicle. And because of that u'd have to rethink ur ammo selection. And it's not like tons of Police don't use the G19.

The only reason I can figure that Sig couldn't fix the problem is because sig can't ship German parts to USA anymore because of the whole controversial US govt sale of sig pistols to Columbia police. Because they have made the P229's in NH since they started production on the model.

Combine a gun that doesn't like to run dirty, with cops that are notorious for not taking care of their firearms and you have a recipe for jamming.

While the P229 is smaller than a P226 and a G19 is smaller than a G17... to me they all seem roughly similar enough to be comparable.

A G19 is shorter than a P229, and a G17 is longer than a P229 but still shorter than a P226.

Huh? I own both (well actually a G38, not a 19, but same gun) and they are darn near identical in size, what maybe a couple millimeters of difference, but honestly, not much at all. Real difference is the bore access, action, and weight.

Default Sig Sauer being sued by PD for jamming handguns

I have yet to have one fail and I have over 10K rounds through P Series Sigs. I change the springs regularly though. I never give these financial disputes any notice. I guess it might scare off a new gun buyer but the FBI, Secret Service etc etc all managed with Sigs until Glock gave them enough free guns and discounts to corner the market 😂

I gotta agree, I've never had any issues with my sigs, beyond my personal preference that I just don't like the p250 (it's worked flawlessly, I just prefer p229 or Glocks over it). To me it's the shocking issue that they had so many problems with them, and couldn't fix them. I find it curious, but the fact they went from a compact sized P229 to a duty sized Glock 17 when they allegedly got mad at sig, I smell a rat!

Bingo! And the two Sigs I've owned would jam if I used light oil on the rails and a fairly hot round. I ran mine with wheel bearing grease on the rails and had no problem.

Gotta grease those rails! Metal on metal needs grease unless it's a tight match grade 1911.

It's not odd considering how much money was involved. Recalls and repairs on that scale can make decisions very difficult.
