Why do they name sig sauer six hours?

Mispronouncing the name. It is NOT six hours.

What is the difference in kick back between 9mm 357 sig and 40mm?

9mm will have the least kick, follwed by the 40, then the 357.

What is the difference between a 357 caliber firearm and a 357 SIG?

The term 'caliber' can refer to the actual diameter of the bore in inches or to a name given to a particular cartridge. The name may reflect the actual caliber, or not. In the case of .357 Magnum the name is the true measurement, while cartridges like .38 Special and .38/40 Winchester, also known as the .38 WCF both refer to .38 caliber while the caliber is actually .400" for .38/40 and .357" for .38 Special.

What this means is that there are multiple guns that take different cartridges that can be described as ".357 caliber firearm". This would include guns chambered for .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .357 Maximum, and so forth, including several rifle cartridges, but, ironically, not guns in .357 SIG.

The .357 SIG cartridge is an approximately .40 caliber case necked down to .355" diameter. The .355" bullets are used in the 9mm family of ammo (9mm Luger and .380 ACP/9mm Kurz).

The name is a marketing gimmick. It alludes to the idea that .357 SIG gives similar ballistics to the very popular .357 Magnum revolver cartridge. The difference is that the shorter rimless case of the .357 SIG makes designing semi-automatic pistols for it much easier.

SIG Sauer does not presently make firearms in .357 Magnum, but does offer several models in .357 SIG.

What does .357 SIG mean?

The .357 SIG is a rimless bottlenecked pistol cartridge developed in 1994 by SIG Sauer. While it is based on a .40 S&W case necked down to accept 0.355-inch (9.0 mm) bullets, the .357 SIG brass is slightly longer (0.009-inch (0.23 mm) to 0.020-inch (0.51 mm))

.357 refers to the cartridge having similar ballistics to 125 grain .357 Magnum revolver round. SIG refers to SIG Sauer, the company which developed the cartridge.

The cartridge is not proprietary. Other manufacturers, such as Glock, also offer pistols in this caliber.

Most .40 S&W pistols can be converted to .357 SIG by replacing the barrel, but sometimes the recoil spring must be changed as well. Pistols with especially strong recoil springs can accept either cartridge with a barrel change. Magazines will freely interchange between the two cartridges in most pistols. .357 SIG barrel kits have allowed this cartridge to gain in popularity among handgun owners.

However, the .357 SIG is loaded to higher pressures than the .40 S&W and may not be suitable for use in all .40 S&W-chambered pistols due to the increase in bolt thrust.

C.I.P. and the SAAMI pressure limits for .40 S&W are 225 MPa and 35,000 psi.

According to the C.I.P. guidelines the .357 SIG case can handle up to 305 MPa (44,236 psi) piezo pressure. In C.I.P. regulated countries every pistol cartridge combo has to be proofed at 130% of this maximum C.I.P. pressure to certify for sale to consumers.

The SAAMI pressure limit for the .357 SIG is set at 275.80 MPa (40,000 psi), piezo pressure.

Is Sig P229 pistol better than Sig P228?

The Sig P228 and 9mm P229 both use the same frame and frame assembly. The difference is that the P229 has a machined stainless steel slide, while the P228 has a stamped slide with a breech face block pinned in place. The P229 is stronger than the P228, but the P228 is a little lighter. I personally prefer the P229.

The P229's tougher frame makes it better than the P228 for stronger rounds like the .40 or .357 SIG (I don't think the 228 even comes in those calibers).Yes it does amd the p228 is easyer to mass produce.

What is the used gun value of a 226 sig sauer?

Some folks rather have a 357 revolver then a 9 MM semi auto as a revolver if it misfires you just pull the trigger again If a semi auto misfires you lose the battle as you have to manually reject the ammo and hope the next round fires.

Of all the semi autos I did fire I happen to like the sig 226 9 MM the best
