Had one of these once upon a time and always regretted trading it. My absolute favorite USP. Unfortunately the are quite rare right now and when you do find one they go for nearly double what a 9mm, .40 or.45 sells for. .357 SIG was only chambered in the Compact, never the full size, from the factory. There are barrels out there to convert .40s to .357 and vice versa.
I know what Doc GKR has said about the .357 cartridge and far be it from me to bet against him. I also know that any of the popular pistol cartridges out there are a poor excuse for a rifle.
That said, this thing sounds and looks like the end of the world when you touch it off. On more than one occasion on an indoor range, I have had people stop shooting and come down to ask what the hell it was. I know the flash and noise signify dick but I like it.
The .357 Sig feeds so smoothly and is very accurate once you get used to it. I’m having a holster made and I need some more mags. .357s and .40s are also famous for being able to jam an 11th round into their 10rd mags quite easily while functioning perfectly. That’s a big NOGO for me but that’s because I’m fucking special.
Sorry for the photo. I still cannot believe that the top of the line i-Pad Pro while having a nice camera does not have a flash. WTF Apple?
