    Yes I definitely believe the. 357 Sig would make a nastier wound than the 45. because 125 grain Sig round is the equivalent of a .357 Magnum. I also think that some 9mm would depending on load because the 45 depends more on frontal diameter and bullet weight and it's hard to get reliable expansion from the 45 unless you go all the way down to say 185 grain +p loads. Everything I have ever seen read and heard seems to verify that it takes 1000 fps for reliable expansion and none of the 230 grain loads can produce that. I think the. 357 Sig is better than the 45 or. 357 Magnum either and I have all three. The Sig is a pleasure to shoot with hardly any more recoil than a hot 9mm and in some cases over double the capacity of either the 45 or. 357 Magnum.

    Gunslinger, you do need the ejector block to convert 40 cal. Glock to 9mm! I've converted my G27 to a 9mm and it wasn't totally reliable till I got the 9mm ejector block! The different cartridge head size requires a different ejector block otherwise you lose reliability!

    I bought my Lone Wolf conversion barrel for my G27 about 5 years ago. I tried just swapping the barrel and magazines and it would work for a little and then wouldn't. According to "Gun Digest Book of the Glock" written by Patrick Sweeney in 2008 you need to replace the ejector block. If you have a G17, 19, 26, look at the ejector assemblies next to the 40 cal. ejector. The angle of the ejector on the 9 is more acute to compensate for the smaller head size of the 9mm cartridge vs. the 40. your gun may be presently working with the present lot of ammo you have, but that could change! A new ejector block is not very expensive at all, and would give you piece of mind!

    I have a few handguns that I carry including a Glock and a XD. Lately it seems to be the Ruger LCR in .38 that I've been favoring for its small size and light weight. My favorites to shoot are my Browning .22s, especially the Belgian Brownings.

    We wouldn't be arguing if we just shared information. The "declarations" are what's causing the arguments anyway since one guy's best isn't the other guy's.

    Anyway, here's my modded connector. Trigger pull weight is around 3 pounds now.

    Hmmmm…whenever I'm State-side really kinda whatever I'm in the mood for - 1911, Sig P220/228, Glock 19, S&W 1006, CZ P-01, etc. Mostly an ivory-handled Colt Commander IWB stoked w/ some 230-gr. gold dots, and a spare mag. Good enough for me.
    Keep Up The Fire!!

    You're right, although I haven't had any issues with mine. I don't plan on carrying it with the 9mm conversion. I will eventually buy a G32 barrel for my G23.

    Absolutely beautiful revolver. I've been looking for a small revolver and this one looks the part.

    Please stop doing that with a G26 RanCoWeAla, for yours and everyone else's safety. Glocks require a holster to prevent accidental discharge. Just my $.02

    Gunslinger, you are going to love the 357 Sig conversion barrel for your Glock 23! Start picking up ammo for it now because the price is ridiculous, that's if you can find it!!!

    Unfortunately I live in CA, but do have grandfathered guns. Maadi AK-47, Chicom AK-47, UZI Mod A, HK-91, FN-FAL, Sites Spectre, and Galil ARM (7.62). My other rifles are TC Dimension (.223), all three Mosins, Jap Type 99 w/Mum, K98, Ruger 10/22, Pre-64 Win Mod 70 (270). Handguns - Glock Gen 2 G19, Springfield XD45, Ruger Super Blackhawk and Super Redhawk, S&W 66, 642, 29(Nickel), Charter Arms Bulldog, Colt 1911 Series 70(38 Super), Colt Series 70 Combat Commander (45).

    One of my faves is the G19. It was stolen in 1992. In 2011 I got a call from a LAPD detective asking about it, they no longer had my theft report. A year later I got a letter from the LAPD that I could pick up my gun and I would only have to fill out an app to the DOJ and pay $20. A month later I got the approval, and picked it up. It was recovered in a gang sweep and was thought to be used in a bank robbery, but no murder, or I would not get it back. Returned in mint condition and it even came back with the hi-cap mag.

    Here is a pic just after I put Mepros in her....

    That gangbanger seems to have taken good care of your G19.

    I heard he got 10+ years. I think he liked it and did not know how to shoot it. It was in the same condition as when it was stolen.

    Well, I am a simple man... so I like to roll with an AR pistol on warm days... and the same with a desert eagle (44 mag, of course) backup when it gets cool out.


    I kid, of course (I mean, really, everyone knows you only carry AR pistols with 20 round mags after labor day). I like a Glock 21 most days... and I bought a Beretta nano a while back for jogging and the like. I've tried a lot, those are the ones that stuck. I also threw my favorite rifle into the pic for flavor. It's my Black Rain, I call her YT .



    EDIT: Pardon the photo quality... I'm good at shooting lots of things, but cameras not so much.

    I deny owning any firearms. However , if I was to have a few I'd likely have A:

    1) Pre ban HK 91A3
    2) Pre Ban SP1
    3) Glock 23 w/ extra .357 Sig barrell ( real glock)
    4) Ruger Speed Six .357 2 3/4ths bbl.
    5) Taurus Ultra lite Ti .38 sp ( for dog walking in light jogging pants or shorts with no belt)
    6) Enfield no.1 Mk III
    7) Remington 870 12 ga.
