Front Tritium Dead




How did this happen on a weapon I've only had for a month? Since I just made it my primary carry, I really don't want to send it in to get fixed but I have to. SMMFH. What's the typical turn-around time for sending pistols back to Sig for repairs? Thanks

I don't know but if you send the whole pistol back your wasting your money. Just send them the slide.

Well I mean they will probably want to zero it after the replacement, so I will send the whole pistol back

Call and ask them. Turnaround for some has been as little as 2 weeks.

I bought a Sig that had a bad tube, Sig gave me the option of sending it to them for repair and wait a few weeks or send me the sight and have a local Smith install it, I took option B and its shoots perfect.

^ If that option is available I will take it. It'll probably be quicker

It was for me. It was in January and I got the sight in about 3 days after I contacted them. Very helpful customer service. Also my local Gun Smith did free of charge or out of guilt because of how much money I spent in his shop......lol

Zero a factory pistol..guys come on they use one sight height. Just send back the slide if the pistol shoots poa/poi...they will replace sight a with sight b...and its done. Its not unheard of for the seals of the vials to occasionally go bad; I have seen it on Trijicons, Truglos...it happens. Sig will make it right

Yes, they get targeted for accuracy.


OP, send the whole gun if you do send it to Sig.

Well I called them today and they sent me the RA, and said just send the slide so I will do what they said. Thanks all for your input.

Well sent my slide in today for repair. First impression: At least Sig paid for the return shipping, I only paid $.89 for the envelope FEDEX used to mail it back. We'll see how long it takes to return it to me.

Grrrrrrrr! They better slap it on another frame and get to shooting lol, if not it's back to my local smith for adjustment if required. Maybe they only ask you to send the entire pistol if there's a functionality issue with it. That way they will fix the malfunction and testfire/zero as necessary.

As a side note, glad I opted not to pay the extra $99 to have it zeroed to 1.?" @25yds from the store i purchased it from online. Ha that would have been a total waste.

With the front sight being drilled and pinned in it will probably shoot exactly where it did before. I still would have sent the whole gun if it were mine.
