I have a 226 that converts between .357sig and .40sw, and I'm really happy with it. The .357 is actually my nightstand gun. Here's an affordable place to order pipes for either the Glock or the Sig p229
Ammo cost is a slight issue for .357sig. I usually end up paying about $20 per box of 50 FMJ. JHP defense ammo on the other hand, is no more expensive than 9mm or 40sw...about $30 per box for Gold Dots, Rangers, etc.
But here's something to consider
: Having multiple barrels and the option of shooting .357 is pretty cool, but you can damn near simulate the ballistics by simply buying 135-140gr 40sw rounds and save the cost of an additional barrel.
