I've had my Sig 220 for many years and its always been a champ. I cleaned it yesterday and for some reason, the slide will not seat itself properly. It slides onto the rail just fine, but stops about 1/8" from the final position. I cannot figure this one out. Any suggestions?

Are you sure the takedown lever is pointing straight down? If it is too far forward or aft it will stop the slide about where you say it is stopping.

Recoil spring guide fully seated?

Recoil spring guide fully seated?

That was the first thing that came to mind also

Guide rod position is first thing that comes to mind. Couple others said it before me.
