FRENCH CAMP - The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office pulled its deputies off the streets Thursday afternoon and asked other local law enforcement agencies to respond to calls of service after a number of newly purchased duty weapons failed gun range testing, officials said.


"We recently purchased over 300 Sig Sauer .40-caliber handguns, and during qualification on the range, a couple of them failed," said Deputy Les Garcia, a Sheriff's Office spokesman. "Our range master contacted Sig, and Sig identified a part in this gun that will potentially cause them to malfunction."

Seriously?? Other than the crap gun p250 please enlighten me with any of the stable P series weapons that have been tried and true for many many yrs that now all of a sudden suck? I have a new P226 and an old P228 and the quality is the same. So just because a PD has a problem means they all suck? Give me a break

I'm speaking specifically of the P250. And many of the Sig faithful are complaining. Google Sig Sauer Quality Issues. It's not just the 250s. For what you pay for a Sig... They should be better.

Granted... S&W has also had issues, specifically with its revolvers. But Sig has been getting pounded.

Touched a nerve there Jeff!!

All Mfg's will have their quality issues at one time or another. What is alarming is that SIG had been known for its consistent reliability, which is why you pay more - to have controls in place to reduce quality issues. You never heard anything about SIG products, but I too hear more from friends who have purchased late manufactured products that are experiencing issues. Is it just because more people are buying SIGs and can speak about them? I think that's a general trend with the manufacturing explosion that's occurred in the gun industry the past few years. No company is really immune. To me, its how the company responds to these issue that really makes the difference between them. Take HK for example... great build reputation but lousy customer service experience if you're not military or LE.

I've seen quite a few Sig 938's in pawn shops lately, if that means anything.
