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.

Installled the 365XL Hogue Handall, converted a factory 365 12 round mag with a Tactical Development plate, and put a couple hundred rounds through the weapon including a box of HST that is my carry round. Conclusion is this current set-up is the most comfortable and shootable semi I've ever carried.

The 365 is a well thought out design. I put a std gripframe on an XL topend for my ideal carry. That longer slide and barrel help my shooting and conceals just as easy. The shorter frame conceals better than the XL grip frame for me. Put standard trigger in too, the straight XL trigger pinched me on occasion.
