Default Sig P365 to 365X

Sig has 365XL/MS frames back in stock, so since I never pocket carry the 365, only OWB or AWIB, picked one up.

Takes just a few minutes to swap the XL frame for the original 365 frame, thanks to Sig's modular design. What I already like about the frame swap;
-the extended beavertail locks into my grip better
-the XL grip is a tad thicker than the 365 stock frame
-whereas the 12 round mag has a bit of play when in the 365 frame, it locks solid in the XL frame being fully encased.

Have a Hogue Handall on the way for my XL mitts, along with a Tactical Development Pro Ledge base pad for a better grab, even though the 365 ejects mags well.

To me, the whole allure of the P365 was the fact that I could stick an 11 round (10+1), reliable and accurate pistol in my front pocket in a DeSantis Nemesis. I do carry it OWB at least 1/2 the time as well, but the compactness (to me) outweighs the need for the two extra rounds. I always carry a spare 10 round Magazine and figure if 21 rounds isn't enough then I should have brought Thompson - lol!

There are some that just prefer the slightly larger profile because they have huge hands and I can understand that too. Even with the larger grip frame it's still relatively compact so what ever works for you.

Where I live 10+1 is the best I can own.

I have (2) 365's ( his & hers) and just picked up a 365XL cause my better half liked her 365 so well. She'll use the XL as her bedside HD, after I get her a Crimson Trace to go on it.

Anyway, to me, I believe I prefer the 365 over the XL, like both, just think the 365 feels better to me. But having 15 rounds in the XL is nice though.

If I wanted to switch back to a 10 round pocket carry congfiguration it would take about 5 mins. And when travelling to California to see kids/grandkids, I'll switch frames so I can legally carry the 365 unloaded in my Console Vault with two 10 round magazines.
Sig's modularity with the fire control unit swappable with both frames and barrels is a huge customer plus.
