    I may be asking a question that's already been asked before, I did a search and couldn't find anything. Does anyone think Glock will ever make a Practical/Tactical model like the G34 and G35 in .357 Sig.

    Do what I (and a lot of others) have done... Buy the G35 and a .357Sig barrel and then you have what you're looking for.

    I have a KKM ? Drop in .357 Sig barrel and it's dead-on accurate and never had a problem w/reliability.

    About $200 from www.glockmeister.com to my door.

    I was a little nervous about buying a 'drop in conversion barrel', but my KKM has been everything I could have hoped for.

    I love my G35 with Federal drop in barrel for .357sig. It is a blast, plus it is cheaper to reload than .40

    I doubt Glock will make a P/T 357 SIG any time soon. They know we want one but now they have their own round, the .45 GAP.

    The next P/T will be in .45 GAP.

    I have a Glock 35 and a KKM 357SIG barrel and a KKM 9mm barrel. I am VERY satisfied with this setup.

    Anyone have feeding problems with 357 in .40 mags?
    I'm about to buy a G-35 w/fullcaps and have seen a few threads about 357 feeding best from G-31 mags. Any input?

    I was told by Glock employees when I went to armorer's school that the company did not believe there was enough demand for a .357 model in the practical/tactical version. It seems a good portion of their sales for those models apparently come from the competition market. The caliber is not popular or advantageous in either USPSA (nothing below .40 allowed for limited "major") or IPDA (no advantage over the 9mm).

    I bought a Jarvis barrel for my G35 and I have been happy with it. I did change the followers in my magazines.

    I have several G22 mags which I use for target practice in my G31. I have never had any problems at all with mine.
