I'm looking for new pistol, mostly in 40s&w. But one of the great bonus for me is that conversion from 40-357 is usually only require a swap of barrel. Therefore, I'm interesting in what are the 357sig shooters' opinion on their favor platform.

Sig 229 or any of the Glocks (22,23,27) I own all and enjoy them all quite thoroughly.

The G35 with 357sig conversion barrel.

In fact a 6in barrel can be ordered for more speed....

an m&p 40 can have the barrel swapped for sig. if you like it in 40 you'll like it in 357

SIG P226. Also have both barrels for my P239 but I like shooting the P226 better esp. with 357SIG.

Oooopppps that's a 357 magnum. Oh well who needs another 357 when there's already a perfect one available.

Where can I find 357sig barrel for USP? I might get a USP full size soon.

There's a problem with using 357 barrel in the full size USPs.

The Sig needs an SRT or the reset is rather long.

The low bore axis and outstanding ergos help make the Steyr M357-A1 the most pleasant 357sig I've shot. I liked the M357-A1 so much I bought a second one to be a safe queen. They're a little hard to find, but if You keep looking You'll find one(or two!)

Another outstanding 357sig is the M&P357. In California, a M&P40 w/ an additional 357sig barrel would be ideal. If I get another 357sig this is it!

I own five pistols chambered in 357SIG (P226ST, SP2340TT, P239TT, G32, G33 OD) and the P226ST is my favorite platform as it's all steel frame soaks up recoil really well:

I think that's what I'm going to get as my first 357sig pistol. I would consider CZ75 SA first but I will need to go 40 to bar sto conversion barrel rout.

I like the Sig P229. It handles recoil amazingly well for a non full-sized gun.

Is that really true? Isn't our troops wearing level IV armor?

In a .357SIG I prefer using a SIG. Sig 229.

my brother along with a colleague of his at the time tested his p239 a number of years back on either lv2 or lv3 armor using 7 speer gold dots and it had penetrated through the trauma plate. .357 sig has really good penetration in most semis i would say but gets dicey as a hd firearm depending on the loads you use due to over penetration. well, you never know, zombies might smarten up and start using body armor...

Sig P229 or, believe or not, the Sig P239. Both are very accurate, easy to handle, and handle the cartridge well as they were both designed for it. Only drawback is .357sig ammo can be hard to find and it's pricey now. I no longer shoot the stuff due to cost.

I am looking to purchase a M40-A1 and get the .357 barrel. Question 1, when did Steyr import the tan frame, I've only seen them in black? Question 2, where did you get yours?

Thanks,

Erik
