357 curious

I have been a traditional .45 guy for a long time, but am now very interested in 357. I have ordered a 31 to see how well I like it! So my question is are you 357 owners happy with it and would you buy 357 again?

Absolutely love it - recently added a G35 357 sig conversion barrel from KKM which serves as an extended barrel in the G31. In a word, WOW! Will probably be getting a .40 conversion barrel this month. I like options

Yes, as a former 10mm owner, I liked the TEN, but LOVE the .357 SIG.

My buddy carries a G31, and I prefer a G32 or G33.

My experience may give you an idea for the draw of this cartridge. I decided, after years of .380s, I needed to move to a cartridge with more thump and a better self-defense track record. I chose the .40S&W for reasons that I will skip. I found, during my research, that I would have the ability to convert a Glock .40 to 357 sig, and took the plunge with a LW 357 sig barrel for my G24. I fell instantly in love with the 357 sig. My purchase for carry was a Gen 4 G23, knowing that I would buy the G32 barrel for it. My G23 is a .40 in name only, I carry it as a 357 sig.

I only use my .40 barrels for range time, as I do enjoy the .40S&W. I like the .40, but I love the 357 auto!

G31 with S&B 140gr FMJ rings the 100yrd gong with great frequency. Whats not to love? Easy to shoot, accurate, and as much fun as my g20 10mm.

No both the 31 and the 32 will be gen 3's I have fired a gen 4 17 and prefer the feel of the 3's.

The 31 will not be with me long the slide will be sent almost immediately to TSD for an rmr and suppressor sights and at the same time the receiver will go to STG to be cerakoted in magpul FDE

Yup. Autoloader wise, the Glock in 357Sig has become a serious competitor to my favorite 357Magnum revolvers. (The 357 Magnum Coonan Autoloader is still a favorite.)

For myself at least, Glock does this round better than Sig.
