    Glock 33 in 357 Sig?

    I have had Glocks in 9mm in the G26, I find the size to be not much larger than my Ruger LCR in 357. I really like the 125 grain bullets in 357 for SD, so I was considering the G33 in 357 Sig which in 125 grain bullets has the same ballistics with 10 round capacity. These baby Glocks are easy to carry and the idea of the 357 ballistics would ideal.

    Any Glock 33 owner want to comment on how their G33 is working out for them?

    This is the same gun i am looking at, i have a sig 2340 in 357 sig but it is to big to carry. Glock 33. Can also be converted to 40 and i believe 9mm also.

    I love my Glock 33. It has the same recoil as a 40 caliber but the muzzle flip isn't up and to the left like the .40. And of course it's a glock, so you know what you're getting there. .357 sig is also an amazing round.

    I have been carrying a Glock 33 since 2009 and have always loved it.

    Plus, the .40 magazines are interchangeable -- which means you have 22 round .40 cal magazines that you can use. I have 2.

    I would strongly recommend a glock 33 or any gun in .357 sig caliber.

    Actually my first gun was a G33. I sold it in favor of a PPS 9mm, then got a p239 in .357 sig, and then realized I had gotten it right on the first try. I got another one and have never looked back.

    Like I said. Glock 33 is probably the best carry gun out there IMO.

    The only thing that could be better is a pps in .357 sig or a single stack .357 sig.

    Hi guys.. I'm no expert , but I'll chime in here as a former Glock 33 owner that sold his trusty little boomer to buy a Gen 4.


    Only to find that the Gen 4 33s were/and still are rare as a hen's tooth.

    There have been a few people lucky enough to land one, but very few pics as well.

    I could buy a Gen 4 G26, but hate how they recoil in comparison to the push-back of the
    .357 SIG Glocks. My wife agrees with me on that.

    The G33s do carry nice and have bit more recoil than the G32s but muzzle blast is also more readily
    noticed from the shorter barrel.

    nothing to concerned about really.

    I do like the slower 147 gr. loads due to less recoil and blast, and I'm not alone.

    The .357 SIG is like two guns in one.

    Firstly, you get a semi-automatic that can approach the vaunted 125 gr. 357 Magnum in power with some loadings.



    Secondly, for fans of the heavier bullets, you can get 147 gr. loads that are much faster than any 147 gr.
    9mm load. There are quite a few people that love the bigger and equally accurate 147s in .357 SIG.




    I could really go on for hours talking about the Glock .357s and .357 SIG in general.

    Bottom line..get one while you can.

    You can always try it out and see for yourself.

    Glock 33 with 11+1 147gr bullets moving at 1225 fps is a formiddable carry gun. I find the recoil out the G33 to be very manageable, and
    loads of fun to shoot.





    its bigger brother with 13+1, Glock 32

    There isn't much I can add that hasn't already been said. I'm a huge fan of the 357SIG round. I have the G31, G32, and G33.

    My G32 sees the most carry time though. Not because of anything 'wrong' with the G33, it's just because I've became so use to carrying it as it was my first Glock and my first gun chambered in 357SIG. Silly reasoning, but hey..

    It's what I carry daily in the summer, well actually a 27 with a 357 Sig barrel.
    My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon. Go big or stay on the porch.

    I dont care for the subcompacts. They dont feel right in my hands for some reason. I wouldn't mind saving for a g32 tho! I've never shot a .357 sig but .357 mag and it was OK. Price wise is the .357 sig cheaper or the same price wise as a .40?

    I have an M&P compact in 357sig and it was the same price as .40. (a simple barrel change converts it to a .40 using the same magazine)

    They make a magazine extension that converts the compact to a full size if so desired. Very versatile. X-grip...
