Your gonna hate me for this, and want to slap me. But the 357Sig was a cartridge design for an existing handgun, the Sig229. There was no handgun designed FOR this caliber.

With that being said. I can only think of 2 more.

Beretta Cougar F
H&K USP Compact

And you can get a .357 SIG barrel for your .40 P99.

No hate here..... I should have wrote - Manufacturers who offered their guns, stock, in 357 Sig caliber. I'll add yours to the list and add another myself. Thanks...

Kel-Tec has a factory 357 Sig conversion for the P-40.They no longer make the P-40 but they still have new 357 conversion kits for them.I have a Novak Browning Hi Power with both 40 and 357 barrels.It came with two front sights.The lower front sight is for use with 357 Sig.The taller front front sight is for 40 S&W.Glock does the same thing with the G-31 and G-32 by using a taller rear sight than the G-22 and G-23.I guess the short barrel/slide of the G-33 doesn't make enough difference.

I believe the Kel-Tec must be about one of the lightest weight 357 Sig pistols.

NCSHP carries the 8357 in traditional SA/DA.

I think the N.C. highway patrol uses full size Beretta Cougars in 357 Sig.The compact has been discontinued but was never chambered in 357 Sig as far as I know.

I think Jennings makes a chrome 69357 model. I have yet to shoot it, but despratley want one of these high quality firearms.

Chrome is the deal breaker with me my friend. Sans chrome, I would not even dream of owning this firearm. Sans chrome it would be lowered to the same status as a lorcin.

Not a pistol and not factory,but I reamed a 9mm Uzi barrel for 357 Sig.I used a 45 ACP bolt and installed the 9mm extractor.It works perfectly with 357 Sig.The 9mm mags work fine.I tried the 41 Action Express mags and they didn't work as well.Next I'm going to use a 40 caliber barrel blank and machine it to fit the Uzi.Then I'll have a 357/40 Uzi.

I'm just curious on how many rounds the 9mm mags hold? I was just thinking about doing the same thing to an UZI. What model do you have? I have a Kel-Tec Sub Rifle I reamed to .357sig but it blew up on the third round. The bolt is not heavy enough. Kel-Tek replaced the receiver for free and I have to try to build a new bolt or make the existing one heavier. Any extra info or help would help. Thanks, Brandon.

I own an AMT Backup in .357 Sig.

I have no idea how many were made, but I've only seen one other. AMT is coming back!

http://www.outdoorlife.com/outdoor/gear/article/0,19912,1020798,00.html
The company’s name may not be familiar, but veteran handgunners know its products. Formed in 2004, Crusader Group now controls the production and distribution of the original High Standard rimfire and .45 ACP target pistols, as well as the entire AMT/Auto-Mag line. High Standard target pistols had been available under its own banner for several years prior to the formation of the Crusader Group, but AMT had ceased production in late 2001. Its assets were acquired by Crusader last May, and this year, selected AMT products are making their return.

The AMT .380 DAO Back Up is now available again, faithful to the original specifications. With a five-round magazine capacity, a 2.5-inch barrel and a weight of 18 ounces, this stainless-steel semi-auto was very popular as a compact self-defense pistol—and should be once again. SRP: $350

A slightly larger version of the same basic design is available in 9mm, .38 Super, .357 SIG, .400 Cor-Bon, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. Magazine capacity is five or six rounds (depending upon caliber), and weights for the stainless-steel pistols run between 23 and 25 ounces. SRP: $406 to $459.

The original-specification .22 Magnum Auto Mag II and the .30 Carbine Auto Mag III will also be available this year. The Auto Mag II has an SRP of $549; SRP for the Auto Mag III has yet to be determined. Crusader Group is new enough that the company did not have its own Web site up and running as of press time, but its products are available for viewing at www.highstandard.com

That new Steyr M-A1 sure looks spiffy. I thought the older steyr pistols looked goofy (way too Star Trek-ish for me), but the new rail and the redone grip makes it look preety nice.

It is too soon to add the Smith & Wesson M&P????
http://www.defensereview.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=777

They are advertising it in American Rifleman this month as available in 357 Sig.....

I have a very good friend of mine who had a special made 1911 in .357 SIG made by Nighthawk. Does that count?

NitLion,I don't think Steyr made a S model in 357sig.However there will very soon be available dropin barrels-I can't wait...;f

That Smith & Wesson M&P looks like a bad blend of a Fove-Seven and a Steyr ;g

Kirkcdl,

I got this info off of several web sites like
http://remtek.com/arms/steyr/msseries/s/
and
http://www.steyr-aug.com/m_series_pistols.htm

That does not mean it exists in the real world. I know Taurus once advertised one of their pistols to be chambered for the 357 sig - but it never came about, and was dropped from subsequent ads. That's why I was wondering if it was too soon to add the Smith & Wesson M&P. It would be interesting to know the 357 sig chambered pistols people have actually held in their own hands. I have held a G31, G32, G33, P229, Beretta Cougar D, and Springfield XD 4".

I want to see Ruger make one

Amen brother!!!!

Added two more models to the list - the Sig 2022 which I guess replaced the Sigpro 2340 and the Smith M&P ( although they haven't made a run of them as as far as I know .) There is also now some question as to whether Mauser actually produced an M2 in 357 sig, or whether they just advertised a 357 version and had the mags marked 40/.357... so...

What about the 229 sport? Great gun!

I didn't comb too carefully through all replies, but let us not forget perhaps the most able gun to handle such a high perf cartridge: The Glock 20(10mm)
Drop in calibers include: 40 SW, 357 Sig, 9x25 Dillon(?) and I think maybe a couple others.
I think most lighter framed Glocks(including the ones originally designed for the 357 Sig) may suffer with stressed and battered frames over time and extended use.

Added the AMT Backup and removed the Mauser M2... can't find any proof that they actually made an M2 in 357 sig... only advertised for it at one time -- and had magazines listed as .40 S&W / .357 Sig... if anyone stumbles across any info on that, please post!!!

It was offered by special order. If nobody ordered one then there aren't any.

I think the topic offered by the OP said:

Time to add two new ones!!!

The FN FNP-357

http://www.fnhusa.com/le/products/firearms/family.asp?fid=FNF046&gid=FNG001

and Sigs new P250

http://www.sigsauer.com/Products/ShowCatalogProductDetails.aspx?categoryid=54&productid=183

Haven't seen the Sig for sale yet in 357 but surely Sig, of all people,will not fail to get them out there!!

When they first came out with it, STI offered the VIP in .357 SIG. They came out with it again recently but sadly only in 9, 40 and 45 this time.

NitLion
01-21-2010, 06:32
Will add the STI VIP.. Saw one on gunbroker once...it wasn't cheap. I don't know why it hasn't been mentioned before. STI currently offers one in the Eagle 5.0 model:

http://www.stiguns.com/guns/Eagle5.0/Eagle50.php

They were supposed to offer one in the the Eagle 6.0 but have not listed one on their website yet...

PM me if you would like to buy me one for testng:whistling:

The P-40 was a non-seller for them.

NitLion
02-20-2012, 17:32
Yes I think so... although the web site doesn't list all the models that the earlier post referenced. I will add the Sig 1911 Nightmare and the Sig 1911 Carry Nightmare. Also have you seen the Sig 224 as seen here (http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductList/pistols-p224.aspx)
I will add that to the list also!!

Hate to do this....had to put ** by FN FNP-357 and H&K USP Compact and Sig 2022.. Not sure what to do with the S&W M&P's - they are on the website but supposedly the company will only make runs of them for the LE community...
