I just read over at GLOCK TALK that SIG has stopped production of its P365? What problems are they having now? From what I was reading at GT, they said SIG was having barrel misalignment issues. Any SIG A HOLICS here that can confirm this?

My ancestors in Germany are rolling in their graves! If they only knew how SIG has been having serious QC problems. This must be a new breed of German that is not born with the prestigious German engineering DNA.
Makes me want to hide !

This must be the same "new breed" of German engineers who work at Mercedes. Judging by what a financial ticking time bomb their cars are, once they get past the warranty period.

Ha. Not to get too far off topic, but isn't that the case with ALL German cars? Too complex. When complexity increases, reliability decreases.

I'm the type of person who gets attached to vehicles and keeps them for a long time, well past warranty expiration. German cars aren't a good choice for keeping for a long time, unless you can afford the pricey maintenance.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't the SIG P365 a type of firearm? shrug

Well this is disappointing, I liked the P365 from a quick glance.

I still have to return my P320 for a "voluntary recall" because apparently they aren't drop safe.

I'm starting to wonder if it would be a smart move to avoid Sig for a while. At least until they get their act sorted out over there.

Well...

I bought a P227 last week. It appears to be well made. Made in the USA. I had planned to go shoot it today, in fact, but I had to work...

Iíll let you know how well it performs when I get a chance.

Loud-mouthed. Opinionated. Often wrong. And beyond annoying in his amateurish presentation and stupid burnouts.

Why people watch Scotty Kilmer is beyond me.

Itís like watching a car wreck while listening to fingernails on a chalkboard.

I tried his channel, once, and came away both irritated, and dumber, than I was before.

Yeah, kind of silly to post about death law enforcement officers.

My last Sig was this P-229 Stainless Elite. It runs fine. But alas they no longer make it. Now they come with an Aluminum frame instead of an all Stainless Steel gun. And they cost more to boot!
