I've heard loads of people complaining of stoppages on the SIG P226 pistol. Almost all saying it's due to the mag jamming with sand and not feeding. There is now a new frictionless mag called 'AFC Magazine' a bit yank, but stands for Anti-Friction Coating. Specially for the very fine sand in theatre. QMs etc can order these through the system, this is the NSN: 1005-99-979-2458 So if your unit is heading out there, start requesting these, you know it'll take forever to actually get them through!
