    Would the fixed sights on my G20 be calibrated to the 357SIG round with a SIG barrel in??? No shooting high or low?
    Just curious, I'd like to hear input before I possibly buy:supergrin:.
    Thanks!!!!

    When I put a .40 caliber barrel in my G20 I was expecting that the center line of the bore would still be aligned the same as it was before, and I thought it would shoot exactly the same at close range. What happened was a slight vertical change, but so small that for 10 yard shooting it didn't really matter - only about a 2 inch change vertical drop and none side-to-side. For home SD shooting, the difference would be totally meaningless.

    My 9x25 Dillon barrel shot pretty much exactly the same as the stock 10MM barrel did at 10 yards, and hasn't yet been tried at greater distances, where I'm sure I'll find the 9x25 should have a flatter trajectory.

    The stock G20 rear sight is one of the medium height ones that Glock uses, so if you have to go up one size taller, or down one size smaller, a sight is available to do that, but I don't think you'll have to. If you're all that picky about having it zeroed just perfectly, then the adjustable rear target sight is what you want anyway.

    IMO, don't hesitate to buy a .357 barrel. High speed 9MM bullets are fun to shoot out of the G20.
