Default I handled a Sig P365 today

That is a fine little pistol in the hand. Now, whether it fires if you drop it remains to be seen, but time will surely tell. I snapped a few pics of it with a Glock 43 and a Sig P320c.

Was this one of the "new" 365's...with x-ray sights or the original issue 365?

What was the selling price??

The example I saw had night sights. It belonged to a Sig factory rep so I assume I was the latest version. He guessed retail at $499.99.

Today's Bass Pro Shop flyer has the P365 listed for $529.99.

I went to my local Law Enforcement supply today. They said they should have them in two to three weeks. They have a waiting list and don't know how many they will get. I believe they said the LEO price is $449.

I will probably get one, but I want to hold it first.

I have two Sigs, P229R in 40S&W and 357 Sig and an older P6. both are fine pistols. I have both in my carry rotation along with an H&K P30. I also carry from time to time my FNP40 which was my first polymer frame pistol but, I like the P30 better because of it's fit to my hand. However I still like my Sigs andwon't be getting rid of them any time soon. May have to look at the 365 at some point in the future.

I've got more than one on order. When one of the dealers comes thru, you'll be welcome to look it over. We might even be neighbors.

Doesn't the p365 have a stainless frame with a polymer grip

Like the P320 it has a polymer grip frame and the fire control module with its stainless frame drops in.

Yes they do........But they have built duds too....Example-mosquito & trailside. My 228 & 229 have been flawless. I have read of lots of problems with the 365........My Shield looks better, feels better in the hand and has been flawless. Think I'll just stick with it.

I have owned a Shield and now have a P365. The Sig is substantially smaller, almost exact the same a a Kahr PM9. The Sigs grip feels slightly rounder than the Shield. I shoot the Sig much more accurately than the Shield. Mine has x-ray sights so it is later production. My understanding is Sig just cut a couple of tiny notches in the front of the barrel hood to prevent any possible peening. Those tiny notches are visible on my gun.
The Sig will easily pocket carry in a PM9 holster. I could never carry my Shield in any pants I owned. Both good guns, up to the customer which one works best for your needs.

I'm a SIG guy, and a P365 is definitely in my future.

I thought it looked smaller than expected, but PM9 SMALL??? With 10 rounds. Can it disassemble as easy as a P226 say? I may have to overlook the bit of plastic & striker fired issue.

It is the size of a 6-7 round single stack that holds either 10+1 or 12+1

I saw one at a gun shop 2 weeks ago, not impressed, like some comments here said, it is uglier than my glock 26! I went out and bought a shield 9mm version 1.0 last week for $293.32 cash.The shield is proven since 2012. The 365?....well its been recalled once already.
latest & greatest doesn't impress me

Default UGLY???

OF COURSE, it's a bottom feeder & "partially" plastic. R_U gonna shoot it, or pose with it? With any luck anyone getting a good look at my CCW will only see a muzzle flash. Want good looks, buy revolvers.

I'm with you. Couldn't give a flying monkeys if a guns ugly. If it's reliable and I can shoot it competently, then it's good enough for me.
