Subject: .357 SIG
longrifle    6/26/2006 2:27:27 AM
Anybody use it, and what do you think of it? I've got two .40 Glocks and I'm considering buying a .357 SIG barrel for one of them. I've read that some people think it recoils a little "snappy," but the .40 does too and I really don't have any problem with that. Also, does anyone know if it's safe to use a .357 SIG barrel in a first generation Glock Model 22? The pistol is in good condition mechanically, but I bought it second hand and I don't know how many rounds have been through it.

Hey Cato. Yeah I'll prolly do LAX. Closer for me. The FN57 is great except that I'm low on ammo now so I'll have to order some over the weekend. The ammo is so so so hard to find in a retail store and when it is its limited selection.

Darth, Do you know of any ranges that offer similar handgun rental/trial opportunities to LAX, but in the South Bay? LAX looks uber cool, but if I'm not at work, its a bit of a trek to get up to Manchester. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Cato

Cato, I used to go to a range in Compton North of Long Beach Blvd and Rosecrans on Long Beach Blvd. They offered lots of rentals, even assualt weapons too. Stay away from Bullis RD!!!! I got carjacked over there back in the day and its infested with L-Park Piru. (A.K.A. The Mob) There is also:

Cse head is the same, if the operating pressure is the same them bolt thrust will be = so it would be OK. I do not know about CUP's however. The slide velocity may be higher and a heavier recoil spring might be in order. A shock buff might not hurt ether. The only thing close that I have shot is my 9x23. about 50 to 100 fps faster than the .357 sig. Recoil is about like a 900 fps 200 gr. .45 acp but it does not "feel" the same. For me it seems a little more controllable. Got any good loads for the 6.5 rem. mag. ? Just picked one up. Bb

I carry with a .357 SIG (Sig p229).  Downside, mny group size is almost 2x what it is with a .40 S&W or .45 ACP. Upside, finest general purpose ACP cartridge, would not feel stressed out hunting deer or defending against black bear (although certainly not preferred).  I'm just saying it is a great all-around caliber in the same league as .44 mag, .357 mag, .41 mag, 10 mm, .45 ACP and some loadings of .40 S&W.

btw, I want to mention that I have been shot with a 9mm and was not IMMEDIATELY incapacitated in any way and responded just fine for the next 10 mins or so. (Took $25K in hospital costs to get me straightened out after that). Put me on the 9mm doubters list.
