    357SIG in a 1911

    I'm not new to the 1911,having shot my first one in 1964,been interested since but ... I'm liking the SIG 357 the more I shoot it in one of my Glock. I just finished another series of defensive shooting classes along side two Fed LEO's using their service guns. I own 1911's in .22 thru .45, no other reason other than I want one! Any recommendations?

    I've heard good things about the Sig 1911 platform in that caliber, although I've not handled or shot one of theirs. I do own a Nighthawk in .357sig and it's fantastic!!! Quality magazines, like they are with most guns, do the most for reliability. It's super accurate, I've only had one malfunction (magazine related) and in that caliber, it's flat and fast shooting! I carried it on duty for a short time but figured serial number 1 would likely be better saved for range use. I went with Trip Research for the magazines and new springs/followers.

    Why not.
    If you have a 1911 in .40 all you need is a barrel.
    With a 10mm; a barrel, different recoil spring, and magazine.

    I have an FNP 40 and bought an extra magazine and it is marked 40 & 357 Sig. Not sure where to get a barrel for it but it would be nice just to have.

    Sig Sauer might even make a 1911 in 357 Sig.

    I have a Sig Nightmare 357 Sig. Sent it back to Sig for a 40 conversion.

    400 rounds or each and no problem.

    Get one while you can.

    Yes a new barrel in a 40 S&W or 10mm plus some spring changes with 10mm. I would probably think about it if I had a free or cheap source of 357 SIG. I am not real interested in reloading a bottleneck pistol case however. That is related to reloading 30 Luger many years ago.

    It appears I have missed on this one.SIG has stopped production on the Nitemare in 357. I may have to shop the rerun market?

    I have a SIG Nightmare Carry in 357.
    The Forum will not allow me to upload pics.
    All steel, 41oz empty.
    The recoil is a sharp flip but certainly manageable.
    100% functioning right out of the box.
    Carried for about a year and replaced on my hip with Wilson EDC-X9.
    It’s a great 1911 but the EDC-X9 capacity trumps as well as 10 oz lighter empty weight.
