Small in Size and Stature, but Big in Performance!
Introducing the game-changing P365 High-Capacity Micro-Compact. The revolutionary new concealed carry pistol that gives you more capacity, more concealability and more capability. Its the one gun you can carry every day of the year.
The P365 was selected by the NRA's Shooting Illustrated Magazine as their Golden Bullseye winner for 2019 Handgun of the Year. You can take their word or maybe you take a P365 out for a run. The following are remarks and comments from other shooters. Many of these shooters like comparing one to another to get a gauge for performance and any function differences. The Sig P365 9mm came out to serve the needs of the majority. A compact size pistol for CCW with good accuracy and reliability. Usually, most would think of Glocks as the industry standard.
Some are saying the P365 is either smaller or about the same size as the Glock43 with an extra 4 round capacity. The trigger grip is supposed to be more comfortable due to its design. Word has it that the P365 takes some of its design cues from the X-Series of P320 pistols particularly in its stippling and the smooth undercut of the trigger guard. The undercut allows the shooter to get an even higher grip on the gun for greater control and flatter shooting.
While there is positive feedback there are some negative. Some shooters had complain about the slide-lock lever brushing up on the support-hand thumb knuckle when using a high forward support hand.
The trigger press when fired was quick and easy. Manufacture trigger pull info comes in at 6 pounds. Many shooters stated, "the feel was lighter than that."
Trigger reset is short and distinct. Initial take-up of the trigger is light and free. The travel of the trigger once you feel the resistance in the stroke is about a quarter-inch. Pressing the trigger through the stroke is smooth and even. Once it breaks there is no over-travel.
The length of pull for shooters with small hands will have no problem working the trigger, and larger-handed folks will be able to use it comfortably. Read the rest of Sig P365 review.
Anyone own this gun with real-world experience to comment?
Well I don’t have allot of trigger time behind mine but I have has allot of trigger time. The fact that they’re making a fuss about the trigger is misleading. My 365 has the worst trigger of any of my SIG’s. As soon as ones available after market it will be replaced.
I switched from the Glock 43 to the P365 last year. Very nice CC piece. More capacity and more comfortable, for me anyway, than the 43.
I have no complaints regarding the sig trigger on mine.
On the plus side it carries nicely if you have cargo shorts or something with a big enough pocket to conceal it. The square back rear sights do hang up if the pocket is too tight, putting your thumb on the back of the slide when drawing eliminates that.
Rented one. Accurate, great sights, great ergonomics. Highly recommended.
I didnt buy it because the process of choosing inclined me to DA/SAs.
Still can’t beat the ruger 380 for easy carry. Fits in any back pocket.
Or you can try the newly introduced Sig P365 SAS (Sig Anti-Snag):
I switched from a G43 to the P365 for EDC about 6 months ago. I’ve put several hundred rounds through it and it continues to impress me. I just had to re-qualify for my annual HR218 certification and I shot a possible without breaking a sweat. Great gun!
They have a new model with rear sights integrated into the slide. I wish I had waited
Lack of a thumb safety was a deal breaker for me. Will stick with my P938.
Looks like my little .380 Ruger LCP
My Sig P220 is a pocket carry on steroids ... if ya have really big pockets.
My LCP is a true any-pocket carry, intended as a last resort firearm, or one that buys time to get to a real one.

Handled and shot one. Good gun. Better trigger than expected and a bore-line very close to that of the similar sized Glock or Shield (preferred small gun).
The 10 rnd mag is nice, though with an “EMP” baseplate, the 7 round Shield mag goes to 9 and still fits in the pocket of a pair of 5.11 trousers. Not sure about the “+1” though. Find it less useful for days going from condition 1 to admin 3 and back (extra round rattling around). For matches or potential/known social intercourse, the +1 would be likely.
The 365 does not suffer the revolver boreline of revolvers, has a better trigger than any Sig personally encountered, and would be a good add to anyone needing a pocket backup.
“...revolver boreline of revolvers,” should be revolver boreline of Sigs...
Very pleased with mine. Only plastic gun I’ve ever liked. Has very low perceived recoil. Actually like the trigger, but I’m a long time revolver guy.
I have seen the new P365XL and read about the P365SAS, but am not interested. Maybe the latter, but I am quite happy with my P365.
I have one. Great little gun.
And that is from someone who does not like plastic guns generally.
