Hi
Hopefully my new G-32 will be in this week. This will be my first 357 sig ,but not my first handgun. My Glocks are 19,27,23,30 and 36. I have been hearing some reports of the 357 being to brutal on the G-32 frame, firing pins breaking etc etc. I can honestly say that I have never had a problem with any of my glocks, But i have never owned a glock 357 sig. Just looking for someone in this forum who has a G-32 and who has alot of rounds through it (2,000 or more) and what your expierence has been with them. It being a Glock I can only imagine the expierence's have been good one's.
Thanks

I have no idea where those rumors come from, but my 32 has been flawless from the get go. I'm sure I have shot more than a thousand rounds through mine.

I've never had a problem at all with my G-32. I have only fired about 750 rounds in it but it has been just as reliable as any of my other Glocks and I believe it's the most accurate because I shoot it better than the 17, 22, or 21SF.

I have had my G23 for just over five years...:wavey:

I have shot at least 2k in 357 sig rounds plus another 2k in 9mm.

I have never replaced any parts so far...spring may need replacement.

Trigger is just right about now.

Both doing just fine.

i bought my g32 back at the beginning of november and have just over 2k rounds through it. no issues with the gun but you may want to read through the following threads as there have been several owners experiencing FTF malfunctions from the magazines. don't let it deter you from picking up the g32, i'm 99.9% sure the malfunctions are due to the magazines and not everyone has been having issues. just want to give you a heads up in case you plan on using it for carry.

The 40s&w runs at the same pressures w/ slightly faster slide speeds, depending on the bullet wt. Your 357sig will last as long as your 40s.
