OK
I have really become a big fan of .357 Sig
after shooting it myself and from others field experience with it.
Also having smaller hands it is a better fit for me with pistols
like Glock, M&P etc over the same pistol in a 45.

I was toying with the idea of a 1911 in .357 Sig as I still love to
carry a 1911 when going out dressed up for the night but I heard
from a little bird that many have problems getting the .357 Sig
to run in a 1911 platform, why is that? I know its quite a fast
and powerful round, does this cause issues with cycling or something?

Thanks!

It can and has been done, but one of the main problems is feeding, as the bottleneck round when moving forward in the mag has a big gap twixt it and the round below, which can make it much more prone to nosediving into the feed ramp if things arent just right. Best regards,

Ahhhh
OK, that makes sense now!

Sometimes the obvious escapes me!
