    S&W might make their M&P Compact in that caliber. Sig makes the P-239 and perhaps the P-250 Compact.

    of course you can buy any .40S&W and then buy a .357SIG barrel for it.

    i'll bet you'll get other suggestions from members - .357SIG has some partisans on this site (including me).

    Not sure of the price range or firing configuration your looking for, but the Sig P224 is a Sub Compact chambered in 357Sig.

    The Glock 33 is a bit smaller than the hard to find M&P357C.


    Your best bet would be that new 224 if you could afford one.

    If not, then there are plenty Gen 3 Glock 33s on the market.

    G33 is small enough and no reason to search further.

    I wouldn't trade my G33 for anything (.357sig wise) out there unless it was worth enough to sell and buy two G33s.

    I have the G33. Great gun. Looking for an M&P.357C though. Also looking for the Sig Nightmare in .357SIG, but that is not a small gun. Commander size 1911.

    I meant to buy a Gen 3 Glock 33 at the store today, which is why I went there, but wound up ordering a Gen 4 31. Not exactly small.

    You'll have a time of it trying to beat a 33.

    I do favor the 357 SIG.

    Is the Sig 224 the same thickness as 229? I like the sig 229 but it was too thick for me

    I have 2 one a .357 Sig and the other a 40 S & W with a .357 Sig barrel. You can still find the 40 S & W at dealers and the barrels can be had at HKPARTS.net.

    EDIT: one note is that the handling, IMHO, is superior to the 33 as the grip and ergo fit my hand better than the 33!
