I have a G23 that is rock solid reliable with .40, but keeps getting the nose jammed in the feedramp when I swap the barrel for .357 sig. The barrel is fit correctly. I am using .40 magazines - Is that usually a problem? Any ideas on what I can fix next to try and make this setup work? Costs aside, .357 Sig is nice to shoot.

What brand is the barrel?

I have a Glock factory .357 sig and have used Glock 23 mags in it with no problems. I would tend to think it might be a barrel issue. IIRC the difference is a minor variation of only the follower. The magazine tubes are the same other than markings.

Guessing that you have a factory G32 barrel, change the followers to the ones for the 357SIG. They will work fine shooting 40. They are 5 degrees difference and that seams to fix the feed issuses that some have had. Mine work fine with the factory G23 standard capacity mags & followers.

I had a similar issue with the G32 mags with a G23 barrel, i had to buy some G23 mags.
You may have to do the same.
