Description:

The Glock 31 is a pistol manufactured by Glock. It is a Glock 22 modified to fire the .357 SIG ammunition. It uses a modified slide, frame, .357 SIG barrel and magazine but is otherwise near identical in looks to the Glock 22. It has a 15-round magazine capacity. (A Glock 31 can be converted to .40 S&W with no further modification than a new barrel.)

    AHHHH the Glock 31, 357 sig, 15 round mags tru dot night sights, What can you say bad about this weapon? I have had my 31 for a year now, and it will out shoot any weapon i have ever used, my first duty weapon was a s&w model 410 .40 cal, it was good, but the gold ol 31 is better. I think that if god carried a weapon he would carry the glock 31, and besides what other weapon can you fully take apart with a handcuff key?

    Glock great 357 sig is the useless fix to a problem think everyone retired the 9mm not enough stopping power right so lets make the 9mm faster by necking down a 40 cal to a 9mm perject all it done was make faster travel and increased penitration not doing any damage on the way through if you had to fire in a apt or mill house etc were would your bullet stop 3 houses/apts down love shooting the 31 how many auto pistols can you put on paper at 50 to 100 yrds 3 stars just for being a Glock

    I've had mine for ten years, and wish I could still carry it on duty. I love this thing, and want the baby version of this caliber.

    P.S.
    The russian army is purchasing Glocks to arm themselves, as of October 2007...

    Great weapon. Glock durability with a powerful load. The 357 sig load is like shooting a light 9mm load, which helps with accuracy, but you got tons of stopping power.

    I love this gun. It handles well. Shoots straight but he ammo is just damn expensive. Odd rounds always are I guess.

    People look at me strange when they ask me what kind of gun I carry. .357 seems to make people think "It must be powerful" This weapon surely packs a punch and even so is quite accurate. I doubt I will ever switch to a differnt calibre. Not while the Glock 31 is in existence.

    I like the .357 sig round. Comparable to the .357 mag. The hotter round does cause a little more recoil than most guns. I have the 31"C" (compensated) model. NOBODY will stand next to me on the line during qualifications because the ported barrel sends the concussion out to the sides, giving everyone around a headache!

    Great round and great gun, and as mentioned, if .357sig ammo gets pricy, you can also swap out to a .40 to save a little $$$$

    Glock is by far the best choice for Law Enforcement. The price is lower and the quality and reliability is higher. I have carried a Glock for many years and never had a problem with them. I like the .357 for the penetration of hardened cover. Used in combination with a hollow point (I prefer the speer gold dot) and you get good expansion but not over penetration in less hard cover.

    I have always carried a glock 22 and just purchased a glock 31. I really like it and its a much hotter round. The only problem I have had is finding hollow point bullets for it to carry on duty. Everyone around here only carry the full metal jacket rounds because not everyone carries that type of handgun so I will have to have the rounds special ordered.

    I didn't like this gun at first but was required to get when a new sheriff went to it. Over the last seven years of owning I have become quite fond of it. Although the other officers I know call it a trot line weight. Very dependable and accurate.

    I have never had a problem with this weapon. I carry it when I am in uniform and carry my Glock 33 when working as an investigation or as a backup. I also carry the Glock 33 as a backup when I am carry the 31. Never have had any problems with this weapon on or off the range.

    I have carried a Glock 31 for nearly a decade now. I've put approximately 3,000 rounds through it. To date, my Glock 31 has never jammed or misfired.

    I have carried the Glock 31, . 357 Sig for almost 10 years, the only jam I ever had was due to a weak mag spring, replaced with wolf +10% springs and was back in business. I also have the Glock 22, .40 cal barrel so I can shoot the cheaper ammo as well. I would bet my own life on this weapon over any other weapon I own.

    I was a little intimmidated when they said we were switching to duty weapons. I really like my 9mm and all I could think of with the words .357 sig was cannon and recoil. Now I don't know that I would use anything else. Hardly notice the difference in recoil unless I am shooting for a long period of time. The accuracy is amazing. I am sure some of it is because I am compensating for the recoil by making sure to reaim. I don't notice a change in weight. The lights and ammo is definately more expensive. Department pays for on duty ammo but I have purchase one to carry off duty also. I really like this gun!!

    I purchased my Glock 31 when I was in the academy. I chose a Glock for its reputation as being a reliable and simple weapon to operate and maintain. I pulled it out of the box for the first time for qualifying and shot very well. I have been carrying it as a duty weapon for the last 6 years. It has been everything that it was represented to be. I have never had a malfunction that was caused by the pistol. I love the .357 sig round. It is a lot of fun to shoot and when on the range, people stop to see what you are shooting just like if you where firing magnum shells for a .357 revolver.

    This is the single finest combat handgun ever fielded. All of the full sized Glocks share this designation in miy opinion. The reason i chose this weapon is for the more potent calibre.

    While the .357 sig does have a little more recoil it is still manageable.

    My only major gripes with the weapon are the plastic guide rod and the stock sights. I have replaced both with high quality aftermarket parts and find the weapon to be unbeatable for its intended purpose as a defensive sidearm.

    while there are other weapons that are more fun to shoot for pleasure there are NONE more reliable. If you put your tail on the line you'd to well to protect it with a glock 31.

    As everyone knows, Glock is pretty much the standard for the LEO side arm. What can I write about the Glock 31 that others haven't already? I will try to contribute some unique insight in this brief review.

    Personal Experience:
    I am not LEO yet, but I have owned this firearm for 4 years now. I have become very familiar with it and compared it to many other guns. It has never misfired or jammed and I have put the lousiest ammo I can find through it and didn't clean it once for the first two years. Put only about 1000 rnds through it in that time though. .357 sig isn't cheap.

    When shot and compared to other semi autos this thing seems like a cannon. The .357 is an overpowered round on a polymer frame. Felt recoil is a bit worse than most full and mid size handguns excepting some magnums. I put a houge brand grip on mine and got used to it but I must admit I wasn't able to shoot this gun worth a dang at first. Two main reasons; the internal striker trigger and the heavy recoil. The trigger (like most Glocks) is a little heavy and the felt recoil had me flinching to compensate. With practice, both of these problems where eliminated.

    Pros:
    -Glock Reliability.
    -Modular. .40 can be shot with just a barrel drop in.
    -A little more unique than your run of the mill 9mm .40 or .45 Glock.

    Cons:
    -Caliber is a little hot for a polymer frame (IMO)
    -No single action.

    Rated five stars because I can't rate it 4.95 stars. No gun can be a perfect everyman, but the Glock is the standard by which all modern handguns are compared. Many might be able to offer different features but few can offer the same level of function and reliability.

    The Glock 31 is a good weapon, just like any other Glock. It's accurate and shoots very well. The only down side to the weapon is the price of .357 Sig rounds, which is not the fault of the weapon.

    Legendary Glock reliability, has been continued with this model. The bottlenecked 9mm diameter cartridge makes it one bad mother of a round. The .357 mag was king in it's day, for LE use, and I believe this caliber should be king today. This is a round that has impressive terminal ballistics, and high firepower. I'll take it over my .40S&W, any day.
    It's only drawback, is the same as all other Glocks, for me. The frontstrap of the grip is a bit too squared off. It feels a bit, like I am holding a small brick. This is not too big of a problem for a big guy like me, but someone with a smaller hand and/or shorter fingers might prefer the grip of an XD. But the Glock consistently has better trigger pull, than an XD. Personally, I'll take the less than perfect grip, with the lighter trigger pull, any day.
    As with all Glocks, it is a durable, reliable and affordable weapon.
