I've heard that the gun can do double duty as a .357SIG with just a barrel change. Is this true, and will the gun handle the higher pressue caliber? I already know that the magazines would function fine, since the .357sig is just a necked down .40 case. I like the .40 for its price and availability, but the .357 is a hotter round. Plus, I think that there will be even better loads to come for the .357.

Yes, a simple barrel change is all it takes. The G27 & 33 are basically identical in every other way except caliber & markings.

And I might add, so is the 23. Purchased a ported barrel, it's a dream to shoot.

Any ideas on where to get the barrel? I wasn't sure whether to get a factory barrel or not. Also, I would prefer that it not need to be hand-fitted, but it may be inevitable.

The .357 Glocks have longer rails in the frame than the .40's, at least they did when they first came out. Glock may be making all .40's and .357's with the same frame now, but you'd want to check with them. Stay away from cheap aftermarket barrels, get a Bar-Sto. More expensive up front, but well worth it. They make one that is mostly drop-in fit.

What about using a longer bbl from the 23 or 22, to make my 27 more suitable for a hunting pistol? Would this work?

You can use a G23 barrel but not a G22 barrel, the G22/24/35 has a different chamber lockup design. Same goes for the other the full size variants.
