Convert 23c to shoot 357sig

I want to be able to shoot 357sig amo in my 23C. My question is do I just need a 32C barrel or will I need G32 mags as well. It's my understanding that 357sig rounds are necked down 40S&W so I'm not sure. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Just a barrel (doesn't have to be compensated)... I would suggest getting seperate mags though.

Have fun!

Have you had problems running .357 out of mags marked .40?

Just interested in your reasoning. I run .357 and .40 mags interchangeably and have never had an issue doing it that way.

No problems at all (basically the same magazine)... But for a new shooter, or someone not used to shooting multi calibers from one gun, I always recommend that they use seperate, marked mags, so that they don't try and run 9mm down a .40 barrel, or .357 down a .40 barrel, and so on.

Ihave a G22C RTF2/G that I put a compensated .357 sig barrel in and it shoots great. havent tried the mags but they should work very well.

No problem at all!! My first Glock was a 23c... I wish that I NEVER would have sold it! I hope you enjoy yours and enjoy shooting the heck out of it...

Also, welcome to GT and enjoy yourself here!
