Why isn't the Glock 35 made in .357 Sig?

    Considering the velocity one would get from that barrel, 125gr at around 1500 or better fps.

    I used my KKM barrel in my 35 the other day on steel plates. Freakin' awesome!!! EVERYONE on the line stopped talking when the first round fired ;f It was my first time shooting plates, and I wasn't very good, but that 357 SIG in a 35 is an awesome combo. Can't wait to try it on bowling pins ;f ;f

    If they would release a 35 in .357 I would buy one the day of release..lol
    I would love to buy one of these aftermarket barrles but have heard of problems with about every brand I think. If GLock would just release a drop in barrel for us to put in our 35's I bet they would sell the heck out of them.

    SAfe shooting

    Because SOMEONE at Glock dropped the ball, the Huge popularity of both the Glock 35, and 357sig round, one would think they would have put the 2 very popular items together, but NOOO, they couldn't do that. I even wrote them a letter explaining the marketing strategy, supporting points, etc.. no reply, and no result... guess they disagreed.

    A variety of people make a drop in barrel, go with one of those

    My KKM barrel in 357 SIG for Glock 35 fits perfect and shoots fine. Just got it a week or so ago on the group purchase, but so far I am extremely pleased with it.

    Hear, hear on the KKM barrel. Rock solid, great bore, drops right in. Accurate, too ;f No problems that I can see (other than a hefty $$ :( :cool: worth every penny, though)

    As accurate as the G35 is in 40 I can't wait to get my hands on it in .357 Sig.

    Because the .357Sig is a pain to reload for and the G35 was developed for competition. When you shoot competition and go thru 2,000 rounds or so a month, you don't need that extra sizing and cleaning step.

    It's funny how an earlier posting I made to this particular thread which was along the same lines as what 9x45 wrote has disappeared.

    How long ago? I got one less than 2 months back, and it slipped right in and the finish was perfect.
