Ive been entertaining the idea of getting a 357 sig barrel for my G23. I think it would give my 23 a lil more versatility. Anybody tried this yet. Pros cons?
No I havnt had a chance to shoot it yet. I work weekends alot so I dont get to play much on the weekends. Ill probably have a chance to shoot it monday, if not itll be thursday before ill have time. Im a workaholic so my play time is really limited sometimes. Ill keep you informed tho.Sooo... did you try it yet?
Now I'm curious... all you had to change out was the barrel? You used the same spring, magazines? It was that simple??Shot my G23 with my 357 sig conv barrel today..... and...... I love it. It has some kick. But it doesnt have the muzzle flip that the 40 s&w has. Will be my EDC for a while.
Ive noticed that the 357 sig kicks more to the center of my hands than the .40 s&w does.I have Storm Lake ss barrel for my G23. Matter of fact, just shot it this weekend. I don't find it any less or more difficult than the 40. I can't tell the difference in recoil at all.
That is correct. All you have to do is drop the barrel in. The .40 mags can be used for .357 sig. Most other gun manufacturers mark ther .40 mags as .40/.357sig and vis versa.Now I'm curious... all you had to change out was the barrel? You used the same spring, magazines? It was that simple??
I have decided to sell my Storm Lake .357 sig barrel for G23. I don't use it much, and currently mostly use my G30s when shoot. Check it out in classified, aftermarket glock parts.It's just that simple! The 357 sig is just a necked down 40, so it all fits, the barrel uses the same recoil spring as 40. Like Wrigleys, "2 guns in 1"!
