    Show him the difference between a .357sig bullet "which the G31 takes" and a .357mag bullet. Then let him explain how it is possible to shoot a .38 out of it.

    I'll be pretty impressed if he can simply load a mag.

    OP- If your friend wants cheaper range work, he can add a 40sw barrel or (40-9) 9mm barrel for about $120. Both are a lot more affordable than 357sig. The 40sw will run fine with his stock mags, and the 9mm probably will as well.

    A G31 .357 Sig has a bullet diameter of .355 (9mm) while a .38SPL has a
    bullet diameter of .357 (assuming jacketed bullets for both). As you can
    see a .38SPL is larger than the .357 Sig and attempting to fire a .38SPL
    in a .357 Sig is foolhardy at best.

    This is my Talo/Exo G22 with a Storm Lake .357 Sig barrel
