I had been interested in a .357 SIG pistol for some time now, and I managed to get my hands on a used 32 that looked to be in great shape. It is a May 98 3rd Gen model. I have two questions about it. While I have never considered myself recoil sensitive (.38+P from an airweight, .45 and 9mm +P+ have never really bothered me), the .357 recoil is quite... abusive. Short of porting the barrel and slide (since this is going to become a second EDC gun, that seems to be a bad idea), what can I do to help cut down on the recoil? A heavier recoil spring seems the first option, but I have no idea what the standard weight in this pistol is, or how heavy I can go before reliability become an issue. Are there other options, as well? My second question relates to the sights. I received the pistol with a set of Heine sights (already installed) that appear to be the Heine Classic Glock style. At the range, I was consistently hitting low, as much as 3 inches, even at very close range (3-5 yards). Is it possible the sights are that far off, or is it more likely to be an issue with the pistol itself? It does appear that the front sight post is quite tall, but that could be my eyes playing tricks on me.
