I haven't heard of any .357sig pistols wearing out faster than their 9mm or 40S&W counterparts.

Factory .357sig ammunition really isn't that much hotter than some +P and +P+ 9mm ammunition, and Sig pistols handle that stuff just fine.

No , it's a lie propagated by the 357 SIG haters.

I have a 226, 239, and 229 in 357SIG. They look just like their 9mm counterparts and have more rounds through them.

I just bought a 229 in 357 SIG - a police trade-in. Until I refinished the slide it showed lots of holster wear, but internally it was fine. Accurate and tight. Good gun.

Ditto. Mine came with "both barrels"... one for .357 Sig and another for .40 S&W. Only sign of wear is holster wear on the slide.
