I just bought a used SIG P229 in .40 S&W. When I got it home and attempted to dry fire it, the hammer would only go to the safety intercept notch. I tried both magazines and got the same result. Upon disassembly, I found a broken recoil spring. I replaced it, but it did not resolve my problem. I hesitate taking this to the range until I determine if it is safe to shoot. This is my first SIG, but not my first autoloader. Examination of SIG's website shows the hammer of a P229 sitting on the safety intercept notch. I suspect I will have to send this to SIG for repair but I'm hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.
