I seem to be buying more projects of late than guns to shoot as is and I'm kinda liking 357 Sig for a range round.
Would it be stupid to buy a pd trade Glock 35 purely with the intent of adding a 357 sig barrel? Figure with the barrel, it'll be bout the same price as a new gen 4 (525 ish) and I'll have to budget for more mags as I don't own any .40 guns currently (hate the round honestly). Prob $700 for the whole setup...This message has been edited. Last edited by: wolfe 21,
In my opinion....This will be the best 357 Sig Glock set up you can get. I have had really good luck with KKM barrels and they have a G35 to 357 conversion. I am actively looking to make this set up myself!

I'm looking at a third gen Smith, HK USP and a Glock 35 right now all for the purposes of converting to 357 Sig. Just wishing I was a little earlier and picked up one of KSP trade ins earlier this year.
I've coveted the idea of converting a glock 35 to .357 for a long time! It's an outstanding idea and option. It seems that you can very reliably achieve 125 grain velocities north of 1500 fps with a 5.3 inch barrel. That is a reliable match for a 125 grain load from a 5" barrel 357 magnum revolver (THAT debate can be more settled with the above G35/.357 Sig configuration).
It's a little surprising that Glock doesn't market the G35 sized gun in OEM 357 sig caliber. However, Glock has done even more surprising things (so long to get the G43 on market).
I'm excited for you with this idea! Now, I'm itching, too!
