    The 357Sig is the caliber I carry but, I carry it in an S&WM&P with a Crimson Trace laser grip.

    You should cancel your order ASAP. Having a short barrelled pistol in .357 Sig is just as bad an idea as having a 2 1/2 inch snubnose revolver in .357 magnum. This cartridge needs barrels of a decent length in order to achieve its full potential. It is terribly hamstrung by such a short barrel. All you are going to end up with is a handgun with a really loud muzzle blast, and heavier recoil. Shooting +P 9mm ammo out of a G26 would make far better sense, and be much more practical.

    Shooting .357 Sig out of a Glock 33 is equivalent to shooting a .357 magnum out of a 2 3/4 inch barrel revolver.

    Not a wise choice at all, not by any means.

    A suggestion you might consider is to get the G33 and then get a drop-in 40 Cal barrel for it. This way, you have two calibers for the gun.

    Hey Boomer252 since you have already put it on layaway, this is somewhat a moot point. I just picked up a Glock 32 yesterday. Had I been more observant, I would have seen your posted question, but did not. I got lots of good input from forum members. I struggled with the cost of ammo, and the fact that I could have picked up just a barrel since I have a Glock 23. In the end, I went with the really good price for a near perfect Glock and the fact that I just "wanted" it. In some ways, it was almost harder to deal with the thought that I might miss a good deal than the obviously good advice I was getting.

    I have read good things about the .357 SIG.. The more I read the more I like. A regular .357 is like a + P + 9mm, imagine a .357SIG in +P+!

    The Glock 31 was my first handgun that wasn't a 22. Bought back in '98 and it never gave me a hint of trouble. Very accurate round and tremendously loud.

    I carried it for a while until switching to a much thinner Ruger SR1911. Eventually sold the Glock to buy a CZ 75 Compact.

    The one thing I didn't care for in the full-size Glock was its bulkiness for CC. I'll replace the 31 with a 32 or 33 soon.

    As posted elsewhere..


    The .357 SIG has a lot of attributes for someone looking to experiment with loads a bit
    and that wants more power than a 9mm, less recoil than a .40 and stopping power
    that rivals a .45.

    You can go from light (80 grains)

    to heavy (180 grains) or in between ( 115-147 grs.)

    It is also More Accurate.. than any other caliber I've encountered.
    Others will tell you the same!

    I like to see people buying Glocks and other pistols for it.

    The 9mm Magnum they never made!

    Best of luck with your eventual purchase.

    KEV



    PS. I found the 147s to shoot softer than the 125s and others from my Glock 33.

    In comparison to my old Glock 26.

    The 9mm's ammo was cheaper, but it had a bit more muzzle rise , esp. with +P ammo.

    A Glock 33 pushes straight back, so I don't feel much flip.

    More power, but also louder.

    There is no need to look for +P 357 SIG ammo, as it's already there!

    The Gen 3 G32 is even tamer for recoil, but larger for me to conceal.




    I really love both shooting and discussing .357 SIG!

    The .357 Sig is a good round. I don't own one but have shot some. I have a G23 and G27 already, so at some point I will just buy a .357 barrel for one or both of them. I am curious as to why you won't buy aftermarket barrels? There are some very well made barrels out there from several different makers. In any case, I think you'll be happy with it.

    enjoy your new G33. Great round.

    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
