We have yet to see a fullsize or compact 357Sig on store shelves.

I really like the 357Sig cartridge; hopefully they are on store shelves soon.

.357Sig compact MP

I would be pleased to be able to get a .357Sig barrel that I could put in my MP40c ! :wink:

Isn't recoil more like a .40 than a 9mm? This is a very interesting cartridge to me mainly because I've never shot one.

Yes. Some people say 357Sig recoils more than .40.

Some people say that .40 recoils more than 357Sig.

I'm still waiting to see the M&P .357c in my area. I haven't even seen the full size M&P .357 yet.



Take Care and God Bless!

I put a couple hundred rounds through my dad's .357sig 229 a couple weeks ago. I didn't notice much more recoil than a 9mm. Its definitely louder, but the increase in recoil was pretty small, IMHO. I don't think i'd like to $17 per box of ammo though.

This will be the gun I get. I am a diehard .357Sig shooter/reloader. After the .45ACP, it is my favorite caliber. Love my P239 Sig and XDService both in .357Sig and I recently converted my Glock 27 to .357 Sig as well.

Ditto what Kraigster414 said.

I'm not a reloader but the 357SIG is my favorite round for personal defense. I carry a P239DAK with CT grips in the spring/summer and a USPc in the fall/winter both in 357SIG.

Love my Sig P239, Glock 27, and XD Service all now in.357 Sig. I enjoy shooting the .357 Sig more than the .40SW, carry it for defense, and next to the .45 ACP, it's my favorite caliber. And thanks to reloading (I can load a box of 50 for about $6), I get to shoot it a lot. Everyone should have at least one gun in .357 Sig. It's a hoot and a half to shoot.

The .357 sig is one of my favorite carry rounds. The other is .357 magnum. I always carry a S&W 340PD with .357 magnum rounds. Sometimes it's supplemented with either a SIG 229 in .357 sig or a Sig 239 in .357 sig. You can't find a flatter shooting round in a handgun than a .357 sig.



I will too have a S&W M&P compact in .357sig.

Received an e-mail from the S&W LE rep in my area and he indicated that there are no immediate plans to introduce the M&P in .357Sig. Much to the dismay of those like myself who love the .357Sig and would jump at the chance to get one, it still remains somewhat of a cult caliber. The .40 remains strong as does the 9mm, and the .45 ACP is more popular than ever - these are the platforms the factory is concentrating on for the time being.

My wife is interested in the M&P .357 Sig and she called S&W on Wednesday to get a status. She was told that they will ship in August.
