Harry has done more Vids on the P365 than anybody and has had many issues with his P365's!

I thought his review was honest and quite good and hopefully by yrs. end the issues will be fixed!

And just how many 365's has he tested? Point being, anyone with a phone and data plan can be a "You Tube Sensation".

AFAIK he has bought 2 and tested 1 more and has had about every issue known to the P365, so he has more on hand exp. than U or i and most others.

It is honest reviews by an avg Joe rather than a paid reviewer of which there are many.

So we learn with Harry and everything he has said or thought others found out to be true!

His credibility suffered in my eyes when he bought Phil Strader's account of the number of P365 striker problems...

He simply stated what he was told and said that maybe Phil didn't get all the facts.

Seems Sig tells many different stories about how many issues with the firing pins.

Of course Sig tells stories about early production issues. That's why I have an aftermarket steel striker inbound for my 365.

Gee, 13 out of the 14 broken firing pins reported to SIG have belonged to SIG Talk members. Those guys sure have bad luck. The lesson is that if you want to avoid having firing pin problems with your 365, don't become a member of SIG Talk!
The problem with these kinds of "polls" is that people with a problem are far more likely to respond, than people with no problems. BTW, I'm not believing the 14 firing pin breaks in 45,000 either coming out of the mouth of a Sig spokesperson.

Keep the Shield! I got a P365, and it's the worst firearm purchase I have ever made! It's way too small, way too many issues are happening with people P365's, and mine had a bunch of finish wear on the bottom inside of the slide, and around the hold the barrel goes through. I am dropping the P365 for another Shield right away, even though I have not fired the P365. I am not going to. Just give me more Shields! Far superior firearm.

Aren't you the same guy that was trolling on the Sig Talk forum?

No. I have never done any "trolling", but I have noted the Sig shortcomings.

If this is acceptable out of the box, then I will be taking my business elsewhere. Sticking with Glock and Smith & Wesson. I will never pay money money for something that looks this used.

I've never heard anyone comment on any firearm as being the worst purchase ever, without ever having shot it. I'm sure that there are some on the internet, because there is just about everything, if you look hard enough. My big question to you is, if it is too small for you, why in the heck did you buy it in the first place? There are plenty of videos showing the comparable size to other pistols. I expect that any new pistol I get would be test fired and show a little wear. With all the internet complaints there are, I would expect that the P 365 might get more test firing than normal, but I could be wrong.

The almost amazing Sig P365 - YouTube
Having a spring break and putting the pistol out of commission is a concern. As far as the primer wipe, my Kahr CM-9 does this and Kahr says it isn't an issue. It hasn't been an issue for me in the many years I've owned and shot the Kahr.

Hmmm. We'll see. I have the latest version of the P365, and the first 100+ rounds have been flawless.

Have 600 rounds thru mine, but still won't carry it. I just don't trust it with all these problems. Great gun and the best shooting small gun I own.

Both the P320 and P365 had/have problems, just as other new releases do, but Sig Fan Boys just can't believe reality. And they're the first to talk about Glock Fan Boys. LOL
