What are the 357 barrels going for now and what seems to be the best source ?

The 229 is designed so that no safety is needed. Thats a safety in itself. Just think of it as a revolver.

Just picked up the 229 Equinox (.40 SW) All I can say is what a sweet gun it is. Instantly forgot about my 1911 and Glock 34. Easily my new favorite gun to shoot. Very smooth trigger pull, and the grips are extermely comfortable. However, they are slightly on the big side for my wife.

Ive seen the .357 barrels for around $150 or so. Ive seen em on Ebay, Cheaperthandirt, and other sites.

Purchased the .40 Sig229 DA/SA about a month ago, accurate and reliable. Softer shooting than a Glock in same caliber. Feels like it fits my hand better than my Kimber. Really liked the recoil with WIN/USA 180 JHP. You can dump a lot of heat in a couple seconds!

Hey guys is there really any reason to trade in my glock 19 for the larger .40 of the 229? Ive been debating it in my head for a while now but the time has come to make a decision.

duket-Glocks are great guns, the 19 being one of my favs.

Even though I purchased a Sig, I still carry my Glock 27.

its so light you dont even know its there. As far as stopping

power, bullet placement is more important than caliber. I would not ditch your Glock unless someone offered you a really good price.

good point, thanks. i definetly love my glock but i like the choice of single or double action (being a single action guy my self) and i dont have any freinds near by with a sig for me to try out. I guess i could just suck it up and have both huh?

Interesting points of view on Sigs versus some other pistols-- do a web search on tjs custom gunworks. Primarily this guy works on Sigs. Myself, if I have the time, Ill cock the hammer. TJ prefers a double action first shot.
