    357 Sig Glock

    I am thinking about buying a used Glock in excellent shape. It is a 357 sig and I have a question. No where on the gun does it say 357 sig, it has 357 on it but no "sig". Nice gun, shoots well and I like it, I'm just curious why it doesn't say 357 sig. Anyone with any thoughts to help a newbie?

    What other kind of .357 would it be in a Glock as the .357 Sig is the only option.

    Unless there are multiple chamberings of said caliber if looks like they just stick with the numbers. IE the 21 says .45Auto while the other .45 reads .45GAP. The 19 says 9x19 as there are multiple 9X_ Glocks such as the 9X17. The .40 just says .40, not .40S&W.

    thank you

    It's common sense to you but to a person who has never paid much attention to Glocks there's a learning curve. I can see I need to do a little homework and get acquainted with Glock handguns. Only problem with that is I usually have to buy a few to cure my fascination. I do need another carry gun, some thing larger in caliber than my Ruger LCP .380 but still concealable with a t-shirt tucked and a flannel shirt over it. Thanks for your answer, I appreciate it.

    Keep in mind that the .357 Sig is a stout round. If you're not overly proficient with a handgun, it can be a lot to handle and uncomfortable to shoot for extended shooting sessions. Oh, and the ammo is spendy.

    Also, I'm not aware of a semiautomatic that shoots .357Magnums other than the Desert Eagle (.38 Super doesn't count hehe)

    Is there a particular reason you want the .357Sig? I only ask because 9mm can do an admirable job with today's ammo offerings and it'll be cheaper to shoot. Being cheaper to shoot means you'll shoot it more, and hopefully that means you'll apply some training during that time to become more proficient.
