    Mas,

    Do you foresee any legal difficulties using a .357 Sig barrel in a .40 S&W CCW in the event of a self defense situation?

    Thanks!

    There's always the possibility that a lawyer on the other side will remember the swapped barrel issue in the Colt .32 auto from the Sacco-Vanzetti case in law school and try to claim that you swapped calibers to hide a bad act or fool investigators, but if you used .357 barrel and .357 ammo I don't see that as being anything a competent lawyer on your side can't overcome.

    I wouldn't worry about it, so long as the pistol is reliable and shoots to point of aim/point of impact.

    best,
