I own a P.226, a P.229 and a P.239 chambered in .357 SIG. I have had no problems with any of them. Recoil, with the P.239, is a bit snappy.

I've a Glock model 31... and my middle son has a Glock model 32.

We like the cartridge quite a bit... and you can always shoot .40 with just a barrel change (mine's a Storm Lake)

oh thats kool see i like glocks their nice and all but anybody can pick it up and pull the trigger they have no manual safety and what i like about the sig is its just as reliable and has a manual safety instead of 4 different automatic safetys that unlock when you hold it

I have a extra barrel for my glock 23 that lets me shoot .357SIG. I enjoy it, its an accurate round - a bit loud. The Texas DPS issues the .357SIG to the Highway Patrol.

I had a SIG P239 in .357 SIG, and extra barrels in .40 and 9mm. The .357 SIG was a potent option, rivaling the .357 Mag and besting the .38 Super, but reloading for .357 SIG requires perfectly made dies, and requires a tight neck and/or crimp, and that can vary with the quality of the dies, and brands of brass used. You can NOT make .357 SIG brass from .40 S&W brass. If not loaded correctly, the bullets in the .357 SIG can get pushed in during chambering, and this increases pressure in an already high pressure round. From a performance aspect, the .357 SIG is great, but also wacks your ears more in closed areas than the .40, and some people like the heavier bullets that you can load in the .40...bigger bore...knockdown, etc. Whatever you are comfortable with that way. Any SIG in .357 SIG would be a fine gun, with a .40 option with an additional barrel. My 9mm conversion worked in my gun, but is not a standard SIG option, and may not work in all guns. I just did it to be able to use 9mm ammo if that was all I had on hand.

Would like to get the .357 sig barrel for my .40 Sig, on the list of things to buy.

Also, I've noticed that .357Sig is one of the few pistol calibers still available at walmart. I guess it's still not popular enough for panic buying.

The .357Sig is a fairly new caliber. Not enough guns on the market to suck up all available ammo. I'd imagine .38 special, .357, 9mm and .45acp (maybe the .380) is really being bought up fast. Those guns have been around a lot longer, and many more people own them.

I still have loading dies for the 38 super and push 125 grain JHPs @ 1450+ fps (and yes that was over a chronograph) so I don't think I'll bother with the 357 Sig ...... althou I guess it would be a little hard to conceal. :D

Texas Department of Public Safety uses Sigs chambered in 357 Sig, due to penetrating ability, I have heard. I had this caliber in a Sig 239 and a 229 and, like Popeye, found it a bit snappy in the 239 but more manageable in the 229.
