Why not a .357 auto?

Post by DoubleJ » 23 Aug 2013, 17:50

I was buying an ammo box for 5.7 the other day, and noticed that the COAL for 5.7 and .357mag is pretty darned close. Why can't we have a .357mag pistol in a FiveseveN sized gun? I know rimmed cartridges don't feed that well, but the Desert Eagle is chambered in .357

:agree:
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

No no no, I've seen that weird thing. We can fit the 5.7 and the 10mm in polymer autos, I'm sure we can fit the .357.

Well, you didn't say "polymer" just the size :)

My bad, I was in the 57 forum, looking at my 57, thinking "why can't we fit .357s in there?" and I figured you all must be thinking the same thing. I also grew up in the 80s, all autos are polymer to me. The only steel auto I own is a Luger.
