View Full Version : SIG P229 barrel swapping ?

September 26, 2004, 03:39 PM
I have a p229 that does not have a 357 SIG barrel for it and one that does. Is there a real reason not to just swap the barrels as needed. Or would it be better to just bite the bullet and pick up another barrel ? The gun is in 357 SIG.The barrel shoots great out of both guns. What kind of a problems could i run into ?

I'm surprised that you aren't asking this at the SIGforum.

The only difference, besides the barrel, in a 229 for the .40 and the 357 SIG is the site heights. The 357, as you might now, has a flatter trajectory, but that only shows up at long ranges.... so switch the barrels all you want.

(Just be careful with the ammo)

That is ask it at the SIG FORUM. also i fired a 357 SIG in a 40. NO harm done just made myself look like a dumb a$$. I do check it very close and 2 or 3 times now.
