Default Sig P365 long awaited review.

After ordering the gun on 1/31 and finally picking it up on 7/2 I have put 600 rounds through it. 400 Blazer brass 124gr and 200 Aguilla 115gr. The only issues I had were three FTE all after 450 rounds when the gun was hot and dirty and only on the very last round of the mag.

My 2.0 did the same thing when I first broke it in, so I am good with it. It performed perfectly with Gold Dots even when dirty.

The feel in hand for this gun is amazing and it PERFECTLY sized. Sig really did their research. After a good cleaning and striker inspection, I decided that the gun was officially my EDC and I tossed my Bodyguard into the safe.

As great of a gun, the shield is, the Sig has it beat conceptually, at the very least.

The pocket holster is from Jackson Leather Work. He does all of my leather.

I'm still waiting to see if they really are going to offer it with a safety.

Close examination shows outlines on the lower that will likely get punched out for a safety lever.

While I was never a huge Semi Auto Carry Fan (because of reliability) this Sig P365 has also caught my eye. 10+1 rounds of 9mm is hard to not like-especially with today's loadings and offerings.

I've yet to get to the point that I'm ready to give up my puny little 5 shot Chief's Special M60-7) and Buffalo Bore (#20A) 158gr. +P's, but I won't deny that the thought has crossed my mind.

My wife and I both traded our 12 year old M&P 9 Compacts for two new P-365's about 2 months ago. We both have over 500 rounds apiece in our new guns, and neither one has had one failure of any kind. With the 12 round mag it has the same carrying capacity as the M&P, with much less weight. It is truly a pocket carrying gun, where the M&P was not. We both carry them daily now and have no regrets about.

My other carry guns, presently in the safe, are a S&W 642, a Springfield 1911 45 Compact, and a Ruger LC-9s. Here is a listing of their weights and ammo capacities. All have Crimson Trace green lasers with the exception of the P-365. All are loaded with full mags and one in the chamber.


S&W 642, 5 rounds, 16.7 ounces

Springfield 1911 45 compact, 7 rounds, 32.6 ounces

Ruger LC9 with extended mag, 10 rounds, 22 ounces

Sig P-365 with 12 round mag, 13 rounds, 23 ounces

Just bought my second P365 yesterday. Mfg. date is 6-3-2018. The owner's manual refers to the availability of a model with a safety. Also, they fit my holsters for a Kahr K9 and a Ruger LC9s pro which are now safe queens. I haven't fired the new one yet, but the old one has 500 rounds thru it without any events other than the expected "bang".

Mine is from mid march and it is flat out the best small carry semi auto I have ever owned. It has relegated a number or other small firearms to the back of the safe. I honestly can't imaging a better balance of capacity, size, and ergonomics.
