Factory .357 SIG barrels with threads? Login/Join

Has SIG every made a threaded .357 SIG barrel for the P229 or P226?

I understand there is a potential issue with trying to thread a .40 S&W barrel for these guns due to a rather thin barrel wall thickness, but why not the SIG .357?

Lack of demand I suppose...

Because to really gain all you can out of suppressing a weapon, you should shoot subsonic ammunition.

Subsonic 357 sig is called 9mm.

True. Never thought to suppress 357. When I decided to start suppressing pistol I went .22, 9mm, .45.



Not minority enough!

I agree, but I find that suppressing any gun always makes it more pleasant to shoot.
