    Looking for a .357SIG in SC - G33, P250, M&P???

    I don't know all of the "good" sub-compact .357SIG models. I would love to hear opinions. I know I don't like the HK's. Personal opinion. They just don't feel comfortable in my hand.

    Would like something that is controllable and reliable. Easy to field strip. Nice to shoot.

    The G33 is excellent and you can get G31 or 32 mags for backup. Very nice.

    I heard that the G33 kicks like a mule. Is that true? I mean, I handle recoil well and have a lot of control, but I am worried about a lot of recoil on sub-compacts.

    It packs a punch, but I can control it and am very accurate with it. It used to be my EDC, and I highly recommend it. I would recommend adding the Pearce grip extensions to it. +1 round and you can get a full grip on it. Helps with the recoil IMMENSELY.
    Knowing is half the battle.

    As a side note, I'd hate to fire that without hearing protection. At the range, most of my friends have to step back when I shoot it. Something about a blast wave making it hard for them to shoot.

    I have a P239 and like it so far. Recoil is not that bad and is accurate, at least as accurate as I can shoot. You can also rebarrel to 40 SW
    and have two guns in one package.

    Don't look any farther, get a P239 and you're done.

    FALSE. Doesn't kick any harder then the Glock 27 in .40.
    I have a Lone Wolf conversion barrel .40-.357 sig for my G27 and don't notice a difference between the two rounds.

    I vote G33 because I've owned one and Diablo9489 is right ,It kicks about like a G27 .
    I sold it because of the cost of the ammo and got a 9mm.

    I forgot that the SIG P239 comes in .357SIG. I had eyeballed one in the DAK platform not too long ago. I don't know if it is bigger than I want though. The Glock 33 is looking pretty good. Does anyone know if it comes with the curved serrations (RTF2 I think)?

    I voted for the M&P. I think that is a good platform with a great feel to it.

    The Glock 33 is an awesome pistol.

    Sig 239 is absolute tops!! A buddy of mine has one in .357sig, and carries it in a MTAC... I've tried his rig on before, what a dream.... has me re-thinking my Kimber Ultra in a VM2.

    The 239 is not as short barreled as some of the subcompact guns, but it is very thin.... that, coupled with .357 punch and Sig reliability... its a no brainer!

    +1 for Sig P239. I love mine in .357sig caliber. It is as close to a perfect carry gun that I have ever found. It is just awesome. The recoil isn't crazy either. Cor-Bon DPX is a good choice for carry. IMHO of course.

    I love my G33. I love the fact that I can buy 9mm or .40 barrels for it as well. Great gun, accurate shooter and impressive to shoot. Just don't be in the lane next to me when I shoot it. You'll move. They always do.
