    I know you can throw a 9mm barrel in a G35, but can you also throw a 357 barrel in it as well?
    Thanks

    Wrong. You cannot throw a 9mm barrel into a G35. You need a 9mm conversion barrel to match the OD of the stock barrel. You need an aftermarket .357 barrel to fit a G35.

    Like Danny said, you can't just throw a G17 barrel in there, you have to use one with the right OD. As for the .357sig, you just need an aftermarket conversion barrel for this also. I have LWD 9mm & .357sig barrels for my G35 that work very well. :supergrin:

    IF someone would load a factory HP round to maximize the true power of the 357 Sig, a 35 with 357 sig barrel would be the Cat's rear end.

    A 17 barrel would be too short as well.

    If the G35 frame is before the serial number prefix CNX, I would not convert it to .357SIG.

    I ordered a new Barsto 357 sig barrel for my 35 and now I have to say it is almost my favorite 100 yard 9mm handgun. And the round gets there so fast it's just awsome. My absolute favorite is the one in my avitar. A 357 sig long slide. 6.02 inches of really really fast.

    If you reload, you should check out the 9x25 Dillon. I have a handloaded 90gr XTP that averages 2050fps, and I'm working on getting some 124gr XTP's up to 1800fps, both through my 6" G20LS.
