The thread title says it all. I would grab one of these in a heartbeat if they made it.
I have been eyeing a G35 to replace the barrel to a 357. It oughta be cool!
I think this platform makes a lot of sense for the .357 SIG.
Have only this photo:
(.357 Sig KKM barrel)
I have wondered this myself.
forgive me for not being a glock owner/carrier... but that looks like a very long barreled glock. I can see the potential of a .357 SIG longslide... very nice.
after geting rid of some crappy mags that cam with my 2001 manufactured g35 it shoots great with lone wolf sig barrel.post pics later
I asked this very question to the Glock guy who taught my armorer class a couple of years ago. He said that Glock does not perceive a demand for the pistol in that caliber for a couple of reasons:
1. Most of the civilian sales apparently go to competition shooters, and its not adventageous for either USPSA or IDPA to have it. In IDPA its no advantage at all and somewhat of a disadvantage, and in USPSA its not eligible for limited division "major" scoring so nobody really wants one as a gamer gun in either sport.
2. None of their LEO customers were asking for it. Seems all of their .357 customers were happy with the 31.
I think they could really sell them, but that was their perception of the market demand at that time.
Personally I think they'd sell like hotcakes. Imagine Glock releasing the G34,35 and G 36 simultaneously (with the G 36 being a longslide .357 as opposed to the subcompact.45ACP).. Imagine the velocity you'd get with Double Tap Ammo!
Don't imagine, I chrono'ed it, the answer is 1600 fps. Might go even a tiny bit higher than the Jarvis barrel if Glock made one.
Nice! Over 700 ft/lbs of energy. Probably a decent hunting round for game up to deer.
