Are Glock .40SW Mags and .357 Sig Mags one and the same?

    Referring specifically to the G23 Mags. I plan to get a G32 and if I don't have to buy new .357 Mags, that would be great. Thanks.

    Yes they are all the same except for the caliber stamp on the follower.

    Sorry but they are not the same. The followers are a different design as confirmed by Glock and I have seen photos. For carry, Glock recommends you use the Glock .357 Sig mag.

    I shoot 357 with a SL barrel in my 22 and have both 357 and 40 mags. The mag bodies are the same but the followers on mine are a different shape. I never had a problem shooting 357 with my 22 mags though.

    FWIW- Personally, if I was using the pistol for SD/HD, I'd use 357 mags just for peace of mind if nothing else. For the range, the 40 mags work fine. YMMV.

    +1 on what Mike23 said. He speaks the truth.

    During the Ban we had to make do with .40 hi-caps.
    There were no .357 hi-caps for peasants.
    :laughabove:

    Now, there is no reason to buy .40s.
    Unless you are in a loser state like Mass.

    There!
