On individual handguns with a continual issue I always wonder if it's something as simple as the feed ramp. I have a SIG P238, and like all mini-1911s I believe some parts can even fit in a competitor's pistol.

I've even had my automatic digest what I call a "fruit salad." That is, every differing round in the house, hollowpoint, truncated cone and severely pointed. Everything has fed, fired and ejected.

I don't even check the differing types and styles of the magazines I use.

Toothpaste works great to loosen the slide. Don't use the gel type. This procedure should be done during a cleaning session, not while trying to use the weapon. It also works best with the barrel and associated springs removed. Re-assemble with the toothpaste on the sliding areas and hand cycle many times. Be sure to remove all of the toothpaste prior to lubrication and re-assembly.

I have the Micro 380 and my wife has the Sig P238. Some guys on the 'net were claiming that you could interchange Micro 380 mags with Sig P238 mags, and while they are very similar in design , and the mags will insert and lock, the Sig P238 mags are about .100" shorter. I never tried actually shooting ammo with swapped mags but I about guarantee feeding issues if you did.
