    Sig Nightmare in 357 sig

    Does anyone own one?

    How does it perform?

    If I can get some good reports on it, I will buy one over a Hi Power in 357 sig.

    Caleb Giddings did several videos on one 5 years ago, might be worth a look. I have no personal experience.

    Really is a great combination. I wish the 357 sig round would take off as I have one in 229. Being in a 1911 platform is about perfect. Just wish the round was more popular.

    If you just want a .357 SIG for the sake of having one then I understand completely. Years ago I just had to have a 1911 in .38 super auto, I had the opportunity so I grabbed it. However, ballistically the .38 super and .357 SIG are much the same. Usually a 124/5 grain bullet for the SIG and a 130 grain for the super. Plus 10+1 in the 1911 super..

    I want the 357 sig due to the Leighi Defense round from Underwood.

    Having said that I wonder if you can covert it to 38 super and 9mm.

    I don't think so but who knows.. The parent case for the .357 Sig is the .40 S&W so the breach face will be different.

    About a dozen years ago or so I badly wanted to have a 1911 built in .357 Sig. Pretty much everyone said it was not a good idea. I forget all the particulars. I had it built in 45 and was happy.

    I am one of the biggest advocates of the 357 Sig, but if you want it in a 1911 it's best to just go 38 Super or 9x23.

    Very funny ! That said I do have some SIG products that are performing quite well; P-210 American standard model, Juliet 4X magnifier, Romeo 4T RD.

    I can vouch for the .38 super. My Colt has been spectacular since 2012. I have a 9mm barrel and a .22 top end for a 3 x caliber pistol. At a recent match it got very dusty with the talcum like dust at the range, never missed a beat.
