.357sig conversion barrel

Anyone ever swap the barrel and shoot .357sig? I got a .357sig conversion barrel years ago in a deal but never used it. It has no markings so I don't know who made it. Slightly longer that the G23 barrel and compensated.

Never got around to testing it out, and .357sig ammo isn't common around here to pick up but thought it would be fun to try out and have a small amount on hand.

I have owned and shot my G27 in 9mm, (obviously) .40 cal. and .357 Sig, for years now. I like the way it shoots. Great fun at the range and excellent caliber. If I didn't like the .40 as an old friend, and carry a .357 Magnum, I would carry the same size weapon as the G27, in .357 Sig.

Love the .357 sig round, but when my allowance is gone the >40 S&W barrels goes back into place

I have a g22 & picked up a lone wolf wolf barrel in 357 sig for it. like the 357 sig better than the 40 cal. if you don"t reload shooting the sig round is expensive. sig rounds shoot very close to same POI as 40 cal rounds.

I carried my Gen 3 G35 in 40 on and off duty and it did fine. Then I began using a 357Sig barrel and it finally became a dedicated 357Sig shooter. Less muzzle flip, easier recoil, better accuracy, and overall it just does better for me. This is with 180 gr .40's vs 125 gr 357Sigs.

Almost every on-line dealer has it, SGAmmo and MidwayUSA are good bets. The 357 Sig may be hard to find relative to other rounds but when you come to accept it's superiority you don't mind!

I put a Lone Wolf 357 Sig conversion barrel in my G23. It's now one of my most accurate pistols!

The main reason I got into Glocks is their versatility,
these will enhance your g23,

These will go over 1500fps,
