On any "new" autos I always lube the slide and rails on the receiver a wee bit more than normal. Sounds like it is fixing itself since the last outing it worked fine.

+1. I have issued new Sigs to staff and first time out there were numerous jams and failures to lock back. For duty use we are required to use factory issued ammo so I knew that was not the problem. No limp wristing that I could see. When I questioned staff if they thoroughly cleaned their duty weapon and lubed the slide and recoil spring I was amazed how many said the gun was already "oiled " when they got it. Had to break the bad news to them that the "oil" was a protective film applied for rust protection, not a lubricant. Sent them off to the cleaning station for a proper cleaning. Problem solved
