    Default Anyone running a 357 Sig barrel on the VP40?

    Just wondering if anyone is shooting a 357 Sig barrel on their VP40? I was curious with defensive HP rounds like HST's or Gold Dot's, how the recoil is between the 40 & 357. I shoot a 357 barrel on my 40 USP Compact and the recoil with the 357 is considerably more snappy and more muzzle jump. I'd like to know how the VP handles it.
    Thanks,

    Jim D

    I've got about 500 rounds on an RCM Barrel on my VP40 . No problems whatsoever. Recoil ? It's a 357SIG ! To me it's just fine .

    My VP 40 has never fired a 40, put the 357 sig in first thing, 1,000 rounds+ (year old post, update, make that 6000 rounds flawless) and not a single issue, I shoot Speer FMJ and Underwood Hollowpoints 125 Grain, recoil is quite manageable, no issue at all.

    I think I might try this conversion. The RCM barrel seams to be our only choice?

    Thx Brian

    Have been looking for one of these conversion barrels and not having great luck.
    Any suggestions on a supplier with items in stock?

    I have to say I also very much enjoy my RCM 357 Barrel. Its on target. The recoil for me is closer to a hot 9mm its not anywhere near the 40 Recoil I don't think. I have used the Sig ammo & Fiocchi. no issues with them.

    I have an RCM 357 sig barrel for my P30L. It's excellent quality, reliable and looks as good as OEM. I would recommend any RCM barrel, I have three for my HK's.

    Ditto for my P30L. I also have HK 357sig conversion barrels for my USP40c and P2000. No problems whatsoever, just loads of fun!
