    There are somethings that are better left the way they were. Sig is using this to help them hold onto the new contract to replace the Beretta pistol and trying to sell them to the civilian side. The pistols are considered to be bad to start with. Do not drop one that is loaded as it may just discharge. Then when you shoot and have fired a full magazine look to the right and half of the rounds are on the ground unfired. The Navy has been holding off on these for the Marines and the Navy because of the problems with them. Sig has know about these all the way back to the Sig 250 and still have not gotten a proper fix for them. In fact the Army designed a new ball ammo round for them and the pistols do not feed them reliably at all. The new hollow point rounds they also designed does feed better. Problematic pistols at best and they are issuing them to our troops over seas in combat.
