357Sig barrels?

Anyone running one of these barrels in a longslide? My G35 does better with 357Sig!

I've been thinking about getting a .357 barrel for my G35; mind if I ask a few questions about yours?

Who made your barrel? Blue or stainless?

What did it cost? (if you don't mind saying; if you do mind, just ignore this one)

Does it shoot to approximately the same point-of-aim with the .357 barrel, is it a little bit "off", or is it WAY off? If shooting "off", how far (x inches at y distance)?


Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!

I have a BarSto & for practical purposes it shoots to the same POI - only the BarSto/357Sig groups are less than half the size of the stock/40 groups. The 357 recoil is more "straight back" than with 40; and overall the 357Sig just seems easier to handle.

I've always liked the 40, especially in the 2nd Gen G23, but with these improvements in accuracy & recoil - well it almost seems too good to be true. I understand others have experienced similar results (with this round) across the country.

That's why I'm asking here.

FYI: ammo is 125gr Gold Dots & Ranger (357Sig) & 180gr Gold Dots (40SW). I've had the BarSto for several years and don't remember what it cost, cheaper than current list though.

I just picked up a used g35 that also came with a brand new LW 357sig barrel.The owner before me said he never fired it with the sig barrel yet,hopefully I'll try it later this week.

My 35 only is shot in .357sig.

I have a storm lake barrel and it is a tack driver.

I will be getting a 35, just so I can shoot .357 SIG in a longslide. Don't have any real interest in a .40. I love my 31!

I don't have a G35, but I have wanted a 357 Sig barrel for my C24C upper for a while now... Might have to make the move.

I have a Bar-sto 357 sig barrel in my 35 which is really nice but my favorite by far is pictured in my avitar. I ordered a new 24 lower and toped it off with a dedicated 357 sig upper and the LWD barrel in it is one hell of a shooter. 357 sig is hands down my favorite cartridge.

The bare slide and the barrel are. I installed all the internals and ordered both blind marked and had them add my engraving on the slide.
