Sig Sauer 1911 TACOPS 10mm

I purchased a new sig 1911 Tacops in 10mm 2 weeks ago. I have put over 500rds through it and have had FTE issues after about the first 50. Sometimes it will run all 8rds but slide will not lock back after last round but most of the time the gun will cycle 1 or 2 rounds the wont feed. 10% of the time it will run like it should. I have several other 1911's that are not Sigs and not 10mm and never had an issue right out out of the box and several hundred rounds later. I own 3 others sigs that are not 1911's and have never had an issue. I called SiG and also went to the dealer. They are all saying it still needs broke in. I have stripped/cleaned/oiled this gun several times and still having issues. Just wanted some thoughts on this.

Ralan, I don't own a Sig, but I sure don't buy the "break in" theory on an increasing FTE problem. That's my thought.
I would try different ammo and maybe mags if you have any, but in the end, Sig should stand by it.

If you've tried a couple different mags and ammo brands, send it back...
500 rounds is more than enough for a break-in...Even during a break-in, 10% success is unacceptable...I could see 10% failures...
And we're talking a high $ break-in with 10mm...
How many rounds is Sig telling you hat you have to run through for a break-in?

You shouldn't be having those problems.
I have the same gun and have had no issues with SIG 10mm FMJ and a variety of hot stuff from Underwood.

You might take a close look at the hook on the extractor to see if it may have broken.

What does the spent brass look like on the rim?

Well you can see where the extractor skipped on that one in the chamber and the following round looks kind of high like the extracting one is pushing it down.
Don't know, extractor or magazine...

I have two Sig 1911's and have had no extraction problems--in fact no problems other than bad mag problems which Sig corrected by sending me two new Wilson Combat mags free.

However, you mention that the FTE problem began after the first 50 rounds. I have to agree with GoneBallistic--check the extractor hook and also the tension of the spring for the extractor. Also, is there a piece of "junk" that is preventing the correct, complete movement of the extractor hook?

They are telling me 800 to 1000 rounds which seems a little extreme. When i took it to the dealer they took me back to the range because they wanted to see me shoot it. Of course it ran all 8 rds of american eagle they provided which is week ammo. Then range officer but 3 rds in it and all 3 shot but slide didn't lock back on last round, so they said break in. I left dealer with another 100 rds of Magtech 180grain which is only 20fps less than the Sig 180grain ammo and only had one or two mags run with no issue. These are all sig mags that came with gun.

I am not a seasoned pro by any means but when I purchased a Sig 3” 1911 in 45cal, I had similar issues.. I believe most guns have a break in period and I also feel the shooter does as well..

It turns out I was gripping the gun to loose which caused FTE, FTF etc...I was not used to the recoil on a 3” 45cal.. Once I started gripping the gun with strength (more than I was used to with my 9mm) the problems went away..

Since your not used to the 10mm, maybe a stronger grips will help with the issue..

A break in process is supposed to = things getting better, not worse.

I have a Kimber Ultra Carry 3inch in .45acp and never had an issue right out of the box. I also had several others at my sportsman club who shoot competition and all had same issue with the gun. Guess I'm just going to have to send it back.

It definitely needs to go back to Sig. Call them again and tell them that it is getting worse not better. I have never owned a Sig that I have shot so I can't give you any Sig opinions. However, after over a hundred or more handguns, I have never had to send a new out of the box one back but yours I sure would. Please let know what Sig says after you call them again.

I just got back from the range and had my girlfriend video me shooting. Shot 6 mags. First and Fifth ran fine. second and third shot every round but did not lock back after last round. Fourth mag had had 3 FTE's in a row, Sixth had 2 FTE's in a row. I'm just going to take it back to dealer and have them ship it back. like you i have had several handguns along with 1911's and have never had a FTE or FTF right out of the box or hundreds of rounds later.

Just bought the exact same Sig and am having the exact same issue that you had with the FTE. What was the outcome of your problem? Thanks

Did Sig ever resolve your issue? I'm having the exact same issue with my pistol

I had FTE on my new tacops 10mm as well. I sent it back to Sig and they replaced the extractor and spring.
