Bought a gently used Glock 32 Gen 4 last week at a fair price. Never fired the .357 SIG, but I was really curious.

Holy Mother of God what a round. Read a review of the caliber a few weeks ago. One author wrote “recoil was significant”, and “muzzle flip at least as bad as the .40”.

Nonsense. I’ve carried a 23.4 for years. Sure it “flips” a bit more than 9mm, but it’s not horrible. However, the .357 SIG is awesome. What muzzle flip? Feels like a 9mm NATO +P. Nothing more. And deadly accurate. Don’t care if it costs more; I love it in the 32.

My 32.4 is now my permanent EDC, and I’ll buy another for backup. All these years of shooting and I’ve been denying myself the pleasure of the .357 SIG.

This target was shot while moving laterally and back/forth.

Cheers.

.357 Sig is my preferred carry round also. Congrats on the 32.4!!

I didn’t find the round any louder than the .40, and “muzzle flip” was noticeably less, at least for me.
.357 sig in my perception shooting right handed breaks upward and to the right, naturally falling back on target. The .40 S&W unless in a metal framed pistol, snaps strait up violently. Then in my experience, I have trouble finding the exact point to make an accurate follow up shot. If that makes any sense. In fact the only .40 S&W gun I truly enjoy shooting is the Sig 226 X5.

I describe the recoil as more of a push back than a flip up.
We've issued the Glock 31 since 2008. I'm still carrying my old gen3 32 which had the frame redone by Polymer Refined. It's the reason I haven't gone to a gen4 yet. We did switch to the gen4 for our duty gun back in 2018.



headed to school with my duty gun, 32 and 45.
I agree with the pushing back. I’m going to change mine to pushes back, & breaks right. Then naturally falls back on target.
