Raptor ignores the warning signs on a Sig P232. A search for Sig P232 problems was interesting, but when it's your problem, there's nothing fun about it. After you read what he says about it now, I would like to direct you to Raptor's blog and the hopeful words he wrote when the gun first got back from the factory. It's that wanting to like a gun that makes these issues so painful.
SIG P232 that I bought used from my favorite gun shop. Red Flag #1
should have been that it was the only gun in the used case with "AS IS"
written on the tag. Red Flag #2 should have been that it didn't want to
field strip. But I ignored that uneasy feeling in my gut and bought it
Turns out that the takedown lever was busted, so the
locking block wouldn't rotate down far enough for the slide to retract
far enough to clear the guide rails. If I'd done due diligence and
actually researched the gun before I bought it, I would have learned
that busted takedown levers seem to be very common with modern P232s.
Something about SIG switched making their small parts from forged steel
to MIM components.
Oh, and the magazine it came with was buggered
up too: the feed lips were cracked, so it would only feed FMJs, no HPs
of any kind.
Anyways, brought it back to the shop, and they sent
it back to SIG, covered all the costs too. Put less than 1000 rounds
though it before the lever broke again. So I sent it to SIG myself and
got it fixed again, than brought it back to the shop a few weeks ago,
where I traded it towards a brand-new Springfield Range Officer Compact.
The gave me $100 less than I'd initially paid for the gun.
repairs, new grips, three new mags, and a full holster/belt/mag pouch
combo, I don't even want to think about how much money I wasted on that
