Just a question... I thought the G32 was only available in .357 sig sauer, is there a G32 that accepts the .357 magnum round? Sorry, don't know too much about guns... Been thinking of getting a g32 but I am not sure.

No the .357sig is the semi-auto equivalent to the revolvers .357magnum, (On Paper), since theres not a ton of street results to compare the two. Semi-autos do not have a .357magnum.

Just to add My opinion on the round, it's basically a really fast moving 9mm with quite the recoil to it, more expensive then most other calibers too. For defensive use I'd like a bigger bullet.

To help people like tae1822 I must contradict glocks4life's statement that semi-autos do not have a .357magnum. There are semi-automatic .357magnums. They are, however, very rare. If you want a semi-automatic .357magnum you only really have two options. One is called the Coonan, which looks strikingly similar to a 1911. I have never used a Coonan, but i have heard that they have reliability issues. Also, it kicks like a horse due to the fact that it has many moving parts, which would not be a problem if it was a smaller caliber, but the parts are huge because it fires the powerful .357magnum, and this causes the gun to kick hard. The other option is the Desert Eagle, which I think is really fuckin stupid. It is huge, clumsy, and heavy. Desert Eagles weigh a little over 4lbs. They are fun to play with, but generally they are for people that have an oversized ego or something that they need to compensate for (sexual inadequacy). Of course there are exceptions, not all people that use Deagles are douchebags, but generally unless you are 6'10" and weigh 350 there is no reason to use one. I am 6'2" and weigh around 260 and I think they are ridiculously huge guns. For a .357magnum I would just go with a revolver, particularly the Taurus Models 66 and 608 due to their high capacities. The 66 has a 7-round cylinder and the 608 has an 8-round cylinder. I personally am better with a revolver than an automatic anyway.

I use my Glock 32 for things that go "BUMP" in the night (or day) and shoot it in IDPA. The 40 S&W is cheeper to shoot, easier to find ammo for and more popular. BUT when you shoot that 357 Sig you know the diferance! It is like a 9mm +P+ and a half. Just over 500 foot pounds of energy. They make a 147gr load for it now and a 140gr also. On paper it is balisticaly like the 375 Mag BUT that is paper, only time will tell.... Besides for $100 you can drop a Glock 23 BBL in it and have your 40S&W too, it uses the same mags.

ideangelis99 or others that know: I am getting a Glock 32 on Wednesday. I want to also shoot .40 caliber from it. So I guess I get a glock 23 barrel , but why would I need new magazines? Doesn't the glock 357 sig magazines also load and shoot .40 caliber? Thanks for any help.

Hi Bruce,

Yes, the .40 caliber magazines will work just fine in the 31 or 32. Did you purchase a Gen. 3 or 4 pistol? If you picked up the Gen 4, you may not be able to use the Gen 3 mags in it, I'm not sure at this moment. The Gen 4 mags are slightly different due to the ambi mag release option. If anyone knows please chime in with that information. But the previous generation .40 cal. magazines are interchangeable with the .357 Sig models.

tigwelder56: I may have not made myself clear. I have magazines for the Glock 31, 32 and 33 in 357 sig. When I get my new 40 caliber barrel and put it in my Glock 32 can I still use the Glock 31, 32 and 33 357 sig magazines to feed 40 caliber into my Glock 32? Thanks for any help.

Yes, they are completely interchangeable (compatible).
