Anyone own a SIG 226 in .357sig?

Would like to hear anyone's thoughts on how the 226 shoots, functions in .357Sig. I am sitting on 5k new primed nickel cases that I bought for 5.1 cents a case so would like to get a metal framed friend for my G31.

Yes. My agency has issued .357 Sig P226's since 2007. They have been largely trouble free through a lot of use. The cartridge itself has been a good performer in our shootings.

We are going to the 9mm, and I will be listing a couple of P226's in .357 Sig soon. One nice thing is that Sig P226 magazines in .40 are fairly cheap used.

Thanks KOAM, I think I will start looking for one while collecting magazines.

I know the mags are the same but Does the 357 mag use a different follower than the .40?

I have a 226 and a 229. both in .40. The mags are stamped Sig Sauer 226 .40, .357, Sig Sauer 229 .40, .357.


So, I think the followers are the same, for both calibers.

Yes and while I like it and itís been trouble free- it doesnít get used much as I donít reload for it and donít regularly shoot .357 Sig. My gosh is it LOUD

Not a P226 but a few P229's purchased in 40sw but added the additional factory 357Sig barrel since the mags were marked for either round.

Had to swap out the barrel to qualify with and have that caliber on my CCW.

Something like this:

Would allow you to get to where you want to be. Add a 357 sig barrel and a new spring kit and you would be testing the caliber at a decent price.

Or new. Just a suggestion for your consideration. FYI, I am not affiliated with AIM. Just a happy user.
