Sig has always been a great company with great guns. They have also been one of the few companies that continually look for flaws in their own products. That can also be one of the problems with Sig though.
When they change or completely re-engineer part of their guns they do continue to make the old parts. That’s the good news. However I personally have encountered a need for a part and Sig simply not having it in stock. That happened fairly recently actually.
Does this mean that Sig pistols aren’t worth the trouble? NO, Sig pistols are always worth it. You just have to keep in mind that if you have an older Sig and need something repaired it may take a little longer to get the part. It also means that you just can’t go to Brownells or MidwayUSA and get the part. You will have to contact Sig.
On a side note when I ran into this problem Sig’s customer service agent was fantastic. It’s probably the only gun company that has trained armorers at the other end of the phone to help you. To the agent I dealt with I wasn’t just another jerk on the phone…I came first. Sig happened to be out of the part I needed. He suggested another company to get it from, looked up the part, told me they had my part in stock, gave me the part the other company’s part number, and their price which happened to be less than Sig’s price.
Most companies would frown on their people sending customers elsewhere. Not Sig. They just set my loyalty more firmly in stone. It’s also nice to see a company continually trying to improve their product.
As always, I wish you good health, good luck, and good shooting.

Sig is definitely a quality company that puts out a high quality product.
If you ever need some local help, the best Sig armorer I know works at Rangemasters in Springville. Chris Orndorff. He's also a moderator on Sigforum, and has an Armorer DVD out that sells on Brownells. I know he's someone worth talking to about Sig issues. (any gun issue for that matter.)

:D I'm also a Sig armorer. Served as such for the Govt. :D
Good to hear there are more good Sig armorers around Utah.
If you dont mind me asking, when you say Gov., was it for military or for one of the alphabet agencies? I only ask because when I was active in the marine corp, there was only 1 group that I was familiar with, and trained with, that were Smart enough to use Sigs. I'm curious if that has changed much.

SEMPER FI brother.
It was one of the alphabet agencies. I think there are a few agencies picking them up now. I know the D.E.A. was one of the first but think others have started to see the light.

Ooh-rah!
Thanks. I talked to a retired SS guy today. He carried a Sig. Interesting!
I had heard that too. I worked closely with a guy from SS in my agency. He mentioned they had Sig's.
