Original 357 Sig model

I would like to know what the original model Sig Sauer used for the 357 Sig cartridge.


Thank you

I also believe it was the P229, but I'm not sure.

Yep, put me down for the 229, and you jogged my memory on Federal ammo. I can remember the article in American Rifleman back in the early 90's.

I remember reading that article too, and I was excited!

Bought my 229 in .357 Sig before loading dies were available. Had to have a custom set made by RCBS. Great pistol!

Later, RCBS asked me for my load data . . .

At that time, Dillon said they had no plans to make dies in .357 Sig.

First year or two, I resized .40 brass to make .357 cases.
They were a hair short, but worked fine!
Went through a lot of case lube....

It was the 229. At the time the .40S&W came out the 226 and 228's slide was made from a rolled steel with welded on end caps. It wasnt strong enough so the 229 was designed with a one piece stainless milled slide to handle the pressure. When the 357sig came along the 226/228 was still being made with the rolled steel slide so it went into the 229 platform. I bought one of the first production 357sig 229s and had a hard time finding ammo without having to order it a case at a time.
