    It came yesterday, so of course I had to check it out, for an extended time Hopefully will make it to the range today. I got the two SIG mags, and another 6 mags coming (4 mec gar 14 rounds and 2 SIG branded 12 rounds). The new holster just got shipped and the mag pouches have arrived. Waiting on ammo to arrive (couldn't find one box of .357 Sig in all of Billings)

    She sure is purdy. Those Sig folk know what they're doing.

    Sig's are great guns and .357 sig is an excellent round. Enjoy!
    I have the same problem here though. I haven't seen a box of .357 sig in three months. I do however have a stock of about 500 rounds on hand from last year.

    Nice.

    The aftermarket mags make me a little bit nervous. Never heard anything good about the MecGars for XD's... Be safe out there.

    Congrats. I have tried other brands but I keep coming back to Sig for my EDC guns.

    Apparently, from info supplied on the previous thread, MecGar used to manufacture all the SIG branded mags. Our Undersheriff swears by them (not AT them )

    That's a nice piece. Maybe someday I can afford one...

    Just an aside, what IS going on with .357 sig? It seems like it's gaining modest traction with LE, but becoming less desirable in the civilian market. Is it slowly growing or slowly dying?

    Did not know that about the Sig's...

    I think the MecGar is +1 on the XD-40 and +2 on the XD-9. I personally think they try to cram that few extra into a flush fit and it just doesn't agree with certain platforms that are already maxed out.

    Be sure to report back if they give you any trouble or how they work out for you.

    Depends on who you ask. It's my preferred round as Joe Citizen.

    I'm not knowledgeable enough of large scale trends to answer that. I made my own choice of the .357 Sig AFTER the decision to buy a double-stack duty weapon. The decision was made after studying performance on ballistic Gel tests and was solidified by anecdotal reports from using LE agencies that had to actually shoot people with them. I was impressed enough to choose it.

    Thanks. I also am very impressed with what I've read about the round. I guess the thing that got me wondering was a LGS has had a used 3rd gen Glock 32 on sale for $430, and it's been sitting on the shelf for almost a month. I checked it out once, appears to be in great condition, so the only thing I could figure was nobody wanted a .357. Every other Glock goes like hotcakes from that store.

    Maybe I'll just go put that thing on layaway. Heck, I can always drop a .40 barrel in it if .357 gets hard to find, but so far it seems there's plenty around in this area, at least.
