SIG Wants You to Carry 365 with the P365 – New 10+1 9mm Subcompact

SIG Sauer is announcing their newest handgun for everyday carry, the P365. It’s a polymer-framed, striker-fired subcompact chambered for 9mm Luger. Unlike a lot of handguns in this class, they built it from the ground up — it’s not another grip-chopped service pistol.

The new “micro-compact” P365 is all about capacity. Unlike many single-stack pistols in its size and weight range, it offers 10+1 rounds of ammunition and that’s with flush magazines. With extended magazines the gun provides an even better 12+1-round capacity.

SIG pulled this off by using double-stack magazines with an extra-long taper. This makes the magazines wide at the bottom and narrow at the top — high-capacity in the grip and skinny under the slide and controls.

“As a company, we are relentless in our quest to be better — to constantly improve upon our existing products and to design and build superior products than those currently on the market,” said CEO Ron Cohen in the product announcement. “The P365 is a pistol for professionals and civilians alike who want a smaller, high-performance pistol that does it all. This is the ultimate, everyday concealed-carry pistol.”

All around the P365 measures in at less than 6 inches long, 4.3 inches tall and 1 inch wide. It weighs less than 18 ounces unloaded, including the magazine. The pistol has a 3.1-inch barrel and is rated for +P ammunition.

With flush magazines the gun has a two-and-a-half-finger grip, give or take, depending on hand size. SIG ships the P365 with an extended floorplate for a fuller grip and with extended magazines the gun should be comfortable to shoot for just about everyone.

That means that with the P365 shooters can choose what they want most out of their everyday carry gun — concealability or added capacity.

Like the P320 and P250, the P365 features a modular chassis. It uses a slimmer sub-frame for the edge in concealability and isn’t interchangeable with the other guns but it does have a replaceable polymer grip.

The standard grip has textured panels all around, a deeply undercut trigger guard and a special accessory rail. Instead of a Picatinny or even “old-style” SIG rail the P365 has two horizontal slots molded into the frame.

Users will be able to install lights and lasers onto their guns by clamping them into the slots. SIG plans to offer these accessories down the line along with grip frames with integral laser modules. Every pistol also comes standard with factory night sights.

Rounding things out SIG worked with Blackpoint Tactical to develop a series of holsters for the P365 available at launch. SIG is also working on a P365 air pistol for training and backyard plinking and even a suppressor system that’s sure to raise eyebrows.

This gun fits a niche that SIG’s other handguns don’t. It’s not a modified service pistol, cut-down for concealed-carry. It’s made from scratch to be an everyday-carry gun for anyone looking for one gun for every time and place.

The P365 is priced at $599 which is in-line with base model P320 pistols. Expect real-world pricing to start at around $500. Magazines are priced around and under $50 and holsters $80.

    What an ugly gun.

  • lukeum January 13, 2018, 4:37 pm

    just another glock in drag

  • PaulWVa January 12, 2018, 6:03 pm

    I can’t see a big difference in the 365 and my Sig P-320 sub compact. The 320 will hold 12+1 with it’s standard mags and with adapter can carry 15+1. The 320 is pretty small, easy to carry and very accurate. I’ll have to see the 365 up close to see if it is a worthy challenger to my EDC. The 365 is a pretty interesting looking gun for today’s gun market.

  • Jake January 12, 2018, 1:01 pm

    If dropped will It discharge a round? Sig seems to have that issue with striker fired pistols.

    • PaulWVa January 12, 2018, 6:06 pm

      Old news ….they fixed that supposed issue months ago.

    • charles January 12, 2018, 6:47 pm

      No discharge without a You Tube account and a large hammer to beat it to death. For the record the P320 passed ALL the government drop test requirements. Still unacceptable I will admit but this product is just fine. I want one. I have the P938 and it is great, I just want more rounds.

  • CA Frank January 12, 2018, 12:36 pm

    Include a holster and mag carrier like Springfield XD models. Make a more attractive package. More importantly, get this model CA approved.

  • Kevin January 12, 2018, 12:03 pm

    There is no such thing as “high-performance pistol that does it all” : Add double stack and you add width and weigh. Add sights like the gun pictured and you add size and the possibility of snagging. If you have a gun that’s comfortable to shoot then you probably have a gun that’s too big or heavy to carry comfortably all day, every day, every where.
    If you want a carry gun that you will carry all the time, your first choices should be dependability; this gun should absolutely shoot every time you pull the trigger. It should be small enough and light enough to carry over long periods of time, standing, sitting, or walking, without discomfort. Forget about sights. If you can hit a refrigerator at 15 feet using the “point and shoot method”, that’s all the accuracy you are likely to need for a carry gun. Think you need a lot of ammo capacity? If you are prepared, you may get off a shot at an Assailant, maybe two at the most. Trying to explain the the Police or a Judge why you sprayed the neighborhood with another 8-10 rounds or shot the Assailant in the back while he ran away could land you some jail time.

      Dam…why don’t you just move to Commiefornia and join that wine and cheese posse. Who died and left you incharge of firearms protocol!

      One of the most practical & apparently, experienced based comments posted.

  • Mike White January 12, 2018, 11:35 am

    How does the P365 compare to the P938 on the range and practical use?

    • Torquemada January 12, 2018, 1:24 pm

      Don’t know. I’ve carried the P938 for several years and I find it to be an ideal carry weapon. It shoots every time, and it is an effortless ‘o o

    • Torquemada January 12, 2018, 1:29 pm

      The p938 is an ideal carry weapon. Completely dependable, and small enough to be an effortless carry weapon. I’ve carried it for several years now. Do you want to spend the day shooting it at the range? No. But that is not the point of a really versatile carry gun.

  • CFRing January 12, 2018, 11:10 am

    Looks almost as good as my SR9c,

  • Chad Christiansen January 12, 2018, 11:04 am

    You people need to look at the specs. It’s a quarter inch thinner than anything else like a glock 26 or xd mod2. It’s the same or smaller than the popular single stacks like the Shield yet holds 10+1 as opposed to 7+1. I carry an xdm compact that is similar in size and holds 13+1 but I might be willing to give up 3 rounds for a much slimmer gun.

  • Shawn January 12, 2018, 9:36 am

    Striker fired. No trigger safety. Fool me once….

    Why isn’t a single “journalist” asking SIG about the elephant in the room?

    Why do they think it is “drop safe?”

    Am I the only one who doesn’t trust SIG at this point? They knew about the drop safety problem because they had already been sued and they had already supposedly fixed the military contract pistols, and yet they initially lied.

    Only after their public shaming did they offer the moronically titled “voluntary upgrade,” which still does not have a positive block, instead relying on a system which merely lightens up the parts meaning the potential is still there from a greater height.

    Thank you Mr. Cohen for turning one of the most trusted brands in the world into the laughing stock of the gun world.

    Take your color of the week program and go back to Kimber.

    • John Miller January 12, 2018, 12:39 pm

      Sig had enough egg on their face after the p320 issue that they implemented a new drop test protocol. My understanding is that the p365 was dropped over 500 times from different angles before it was released publicly. The new test requirement is for something like 250 drops at a wide range of angles. I will try to share the review that had that data (if I can find it).

    • charles January 12, 2018, 6:53 pm

      Yes you are, go buy another Glock.

  • Don January 12, 2018, 7:38 am

    Springfield has done advanced in the hi capacity slim carry market. The xD mod 2. The 9mm and .45 version both already beat the Sig in capacity. Not bashing Sig, just stating what is available already. Now on to the p365. I love it. I think I will be owning one for sure. It looks great and is really compact. Perfect for these Indiana winters and hot summers.

  • Lon January 12, 2018, 7:00 am

    If they make one in .40, I’ll buy it.

    • Zupglick January 12, 2018, 12:50 pm

      I want 10mm.

      • warzone January 16, 2018, 4:46 pm

        .40 is just 10mm short
        10mm is just a .40 magnum.
        I’m waiting for the Desert Eagle in Beowulf .50

  • Roger January 12, 2018, 5:56 am

    With all the feature that were described and shown, it looks like a winner to me.

  • Kenneth Thomas January 12, 2018, 3:57 am

    If, I hadn’t already invested in a Glock 43 with +1 base plate and two +4 extended base plates for backup mags; I would pick up one. I do like that it isn’t as tall in the hand as most past Sig models. The CZ Rami comes close in the capacity but it is rather heavy for such a little pistol. I wonder how well does it pocket? My Glock 43 fits most of my jean and dress pants pockets.

  • Russ H. January 12, 2018, 3:47 am

    Finally! Sig has not only joined the game but they\’ve one-upped the competition in single stack 9mm\’s. Staggered magazine design allows 10 rds in the size of a single stack grip plus it comes with night sites! Also, I believe a 12 rd extended mag available. If I hadn\’t just bought a Glock 43 Talo I\’d be buying this (may anyway) – my G43 only holds 7+1 rds in it\’s current configuration. I\’ve seen pre-order prices for the 365 as low as $500. It is supposed to be on shelves by the end of January 2018. It does require a proprietary (Sig) light if you go that route. I expect to see a Sig 320 in 10mm before long too (I\’ve got no further info – just a GOOD hunch).

  • Mark N. January 9, 2018, 1:04 am

    I am not a Sig fan, but I like what I see. I am amazed that they get 10+1 in a package roughly the same size as my Kahr CW9 (7+1). I may be wrong, but this may be the only micro 9 on the market with that much capacity. And the price is right in line and competitive with the Shield, more than the base gun, less than the one with night sights.
    When will these be released?

    • James January 12, 2018, 7:06 am

      Yup your wrong the sig p365 is the same size as the Taurus PT111 which comes with 2-12rd mags for $210.00 or the XD mod 2 in subcompact holds 13rds in flush mag and 16 extended. Sig won the MHS for army so now they just making shit. I wouldn’t waste my money. My Taurus PT111 has 2000rds thru it no problems ever for $210.00 tell me what handgun beats that

      • Justin January 12, 2018, 8:53 am

        Actually the XD mod 2 is almost a quarter inch wider that’s why it can fit more Ammo it’s not a single stack sig fit 10 rds in a 1in package

      • John Miller January 12, 2018, 12:33 pm

        This is more on par with the single stacks like the XDS, shield, and Glock 43. From my view of the specs it’s about a quarter inch shorter in length and height than the PT111 and it’s 2oz lighter. For those that carry while running, bike riding or extended durations, that 2 ounces makes a big difference.

    • scott w. January 12, 2018, 11:21 am

      The SCCY 9mm is a double stack 9mm with 10+1 capacity and lifetime warranty. ~$225
