Anyone have a guess as to what percent of Glock .40 caliber owners have 357 Sig conversion barrels?
A guess - less than 1%. Most people are not as - let's say avid, as many on this forum.
I have Glock OEM 357 barrels for my G27 and G22. I sometimes use my gen3 G23 barrel in my gen4 G32.
I've made it...I'm finally a 1%er. I have .357 Sig & 9mm barrels for my g23. Love them both.
I use a Glock 24 Lone Wolf .357 barrel for my G35. (Works in my G22 also)
I can fire 9mm, .40 and .357 Sig from one pistol. Love it.
I put a 31c barrel in my 22c pistol and I have never taken it out. I like the .357sig far more than the .40.
I had a g32 with a .40cal barrel.
I bought a 357 Sig barrel for my G22 back in 95 or 96 from Brownells. It has no markings on it, no caliber, no manufacturer, nothing. Anyone have any idea who manufactured these barrels for Brownell's? Also have a Lone Wolf 40 to 9mm. I really like the 357 Sig, I just wish I could afford to shoot it more. I don't want to load a bottle neck cartridge.
Federal made a lot of barrels during those years, no markings. They ran great, and where like $79
Thanks for the info. You are right about them being good barrels as mine has been in the bottom of my range bag the last 20 years and I don't every recall having cleaned or oiled it. Just looked at it and it is in like new condition. I have a problem with paying $30,00 for a box of range fodder.
Federal made unmarked barrels back then. Seems like they were about $79 and ran really well. I have two for my G21s back then.
I eventually want to have .40 conversion barrels for my 32 as well as purchase a G35 with a 357 conversion bbl as well as a 27 with a 357 conversion.
Did you do anything other than use the appropriate mags. I have a G23, also.
Reloading the .357SIG is no more work than a 9mm or 40S&W. Once fired brass is plentiful and cheap, and you can get by without trimming for 2-3 loads. I recently bought once fired, processed and trimmed, all Speer headstamp, 1,500 cases for like $85. My load is a Montana Gold 125 JHP of top of 8.0 grains of BE-86 at 1.140". Yea, its hot, like loading a rifle, the powder goes all the way to the neck
????. Didn't know were discussing reloading, I thought were talking about swapping barrels.
Dan asked about reloading 357
I have a 40 S&W and 9mm barrels for my G32.
I know that a lot of people on Glock Talk swap .40 and 357 Sig barrels, I was just wondering if someone who maybe worked in a gun store etc. had a feel for the overall .40 ownership with a 357 barrel.
I've considered a .357 barrel for my G23, but just can't bring myself to do it. My OCD side thinks I should just put that money toward a new G32 instead.
if you swap a .357SIG for a 40S&W, or vice versas, you don't need to change ejectors or extractors, or magazines, they are the same, there are some generation differences, but 40 and 357 mags will run in either.
With the gen 3 Glock all you need is a barrel change, with the gen 4 there are a couple parts that need changed. This is why I will never own a gen 4 !
