not a striker guy, but i have 2 P365 MS and find them nearly the perfect carry pistol. the P365 checks nearly all the boxes for me. i do wish the safety levers were a little more substantial. mine have been 100% reliable.

the G26 has some advantages....it's been around for 25 years, so if there were any bugs, they have all been worked out. replacement parts are easy to find.

that said i plan to keep the Sigs and no plans to buy a P26.

I carry a g26 daily but only becauseci cant readily get a p365. The 365 is slimmer, easier to tote all day.

Neither one as both are striker fired and I do not care for striker fired weapons.

Anyone trying to argue the Glock is better because of reliability or price is ridiculous. Everything is expensive these days and what a 365 goes for today versus what you paid for a G26 years ago is irrelevant. There is also no difference in reliability, that goes for any Glock versus any quality handgun these days. @OP if you are looking for something to pocket carry I would say the Sig wins two hands down. I'm a big guy with big pockets and a G26/27/33 is a damn brick in a pocket. Anyone telling you it isn't is selling something. If you can find either at a LGS ask them if you can slip it into your pocket and you'll find out really quickly which is one is for you.

I am a huge fan of the Glock 19.....

That being said, the Sig P365 is like a magic trick....

How do you fit 10 rounds into a tiny little gun?

Yes, it is possible....

Trigger.... nice!

To be fair, I donít own a G26 but my 365 has all the concealed carry gun can offer plus an extra few rounds.

I have both a Gen 2 G26 and a P365. Both have been 100% reliable so far with any load I've stuffed in the magazine. To me, the P365 feels better in the hand, although both shoot about the same. If the choice were mine, after comparing the two in my hand, and factoring in that you want the pistol for pocket carry, I would choose the P365. If that weren't a concern, it would be a toss up.

Went G26 because of its long track record of being reliable, robust and better shooting accuracy. The Sig did not shoot as well for me and did not seem as well made as the G26. The G26 is still the Gold Standard for me .

Kind of a moot point for me, since I live in CA and could only acquire a P365 as a Used firearm.

In the spirit of joining the discussion, though ...

A close friend of mine recently bought a 365 XL w/RDS (with his Peace Officer exemption). He decided to take a chance on the new production XL model after his first 365, from last year, experienced a problem. Basically, its striker firing pin broke on the first day of a class he was attending, after he'd fired 300-odd rounds. It c ame to his attention when it just stopped firing during the middle of a course-of-fire. Luckily, he had a backup in his gear (M&P) which he used to complete the class.

He took the 365 to his dealer to return it to SIG for warranty replacement of the striker firing pin, which they did, but he immediately traded it off when it came back, without even taking it to the range.

He said he liked to think that SIG has gotten over any teething pains with the 365 in the last year-plus since he'd bought that first one. So far, he's been pleased with the 365 XL, and he's been putting it through its paces at his agency range (he's an instructor).

I haven't had the opportunity to run the 365 XL on the range for live-fire assessment, yet, but it did feel nicely slim and balanced when he asked me to examine it. The grip might appeal to some folks who find the G26 a bit chunky in girth, and the extra couple rounds probably wouldn't hurt.

That said, the G26 has been around plenty long enough to have demonstrated a respectable track record of service use. Ditto the Shield, and the G43 has reached the middle digits of the years since its release.

Personally, I used to wait about a year before I thought about picking up a new model pistol, so any teething pains and "voluntary upgrades" could be discovered and addressed after the guns had been out in the hands of regular owners (and cops, who can find ways to abuse and break damned near anything ).

Nowadays? I'd push that out to at least 2 years, and especially if it involved my own money. I've done my fair share of time and penance as a "Beta Tester" for gun companies. I'd just as soon wait for the "second" or "third" production or manufacturing refinements of some new model to come along.

My point.

Joking aside, after his first experience last year with that 365, he's subjected this new XL to a lot of range time, pushing it beyond where his last one had the broken striker firing pin. He's confident that SIG engineers have resolved any possible QC issues with the 365's striker pin design.

Then again, he's been looking at the newest production 320's pretty carefully, after having been a longtime Glock and M&P shooter. He recently picked up one of SIG's 320 RXP Pro 9's and has been rather pleased with it. He's scheduled a 320 armorer class later this winter to get a better look at the inner workings.

Competition tends to breed better plastic, just like it did with steel and aluminum.

Default Glock 26 vs Sig 365

I have had both guns and much perfer the Sig. The Glock is too much like a brick. The Sig comes with a safety which I appreciate having. When I was still working as a Detective I carried a Glock 33, but I sent it out and had a safety put on it first. I think with shipping it cost me about $150.00. I have been retired for a lot of years and the Sig 365 is easy to carry and extremely accurite, and it comes with a safety. Both are good weapons and the choice is personal preference.

I know I'm waaaaaaay late to the discussion. But I haven't gotten a Sig P365 not because it is a bad gun, but because it does nothing my other guns can't do. I have a Gen 4 G26 and G27. I've carried a G26 or G27 as a BUG off and on for the last decade at work. My duty gun has been a full size or compact GLOCK of one sort or another for the past fifteen years. I like that the duty gun mags work in my BUG. That's what has kept me with 'em.

Now that I've hanged up the badge. I just lug my 4566 instead.

I've been issued the following.

US Army:
FN M16A2
FN M249 SAW
Beretta M9

Police (four different agencies):
GLOCK 17 Gen 2
GLOCK 22 Gen 3

GLOCK 43
Remington 870 Special Purpose Marine Magnum
Rock River Arms LAR-15 Carbine
HK G36
HK UMP 9mm

Agree with the 26 being to big for pocket carry for most people and pants.

I finally get to pick up my P365 at the FFL tomorrow.
I'll be taking it directly to the range to wring it out so I can start carrying it.
I can hardly wait. Haven't had so much eager anticipated getting my hands on a new gun in a while.

EDIT: It was definitely worth the wait! I believe the previous owner put a couple of hundred rounds through it so it was already "broken in".
I put a couple of boxes through it myself, a mix of 115gr, 124gr, and 147gr ammo in FMJ-RN and FMJ-RNFP. Ate everything I gave it without so much as a hiccup. Here's my last 8" target of the session, shot 2 handed at 7yds. Nothing extraordinary, but not too bad for a first outing with a new-to-me gun. I'm already loving this one...

Just another data point on the P365 (XL at least) ....

I took a shooting class recently. One of the instructors was a USPSA Grand Master. In the class he demo'd a couple incredibly fast Bill Drills with his competition gun. I mentioned that was pretty cool, but wondered what was possible with a carry gun like my P365 XL.

He shot the Bill Drill with my stock P365 XL using factory Blazer 115 gr aluminum range ammo. He put all six shots in a group about the size of quarter. His splits were .15 +/- a couple hundredths.

The gun will definitely do it's part if you do yours. YMMV.

The sig p365 all day long. The Glock 26ís time has come and gone. Itís way too big for the capacity. I sold mine, as I have found that because of where the grip/mag ends, it transmits harsh recoil impulses directly into my wrist through my palm, and is uncomfortable to shoot. Arthritis in my wrists and hands is becoming an issue. I sold it to a coworker, and bought a p365. I never looked back.
