Sig Sauer : New Release
SIG Sauer Announces P365 Pistol
by American Rifleman Staff
SIG Sauer has introduced the new high-capacity micro-compact P365 9 mm subcompact concealed-carry pistol. The P365’s patent-pending, narrow-neck, modified double-stack magazine holds 10 rounds in both the flush-fit and extended versions, plus one in the chamber, for a full capacity of 11 rounds—nearly a 50-percent capacity increase over pistols in its class. An optional 12-round extended magazine equips this micro-compact pistol with full-size 13-round capacity. The P365 measures 1” wide, 5.8“ long, and 4.3” tall with a barrel length of 3.1”. It weighs just 17.8 ozs. with an empty magazine.
A high grip-to-bore axis is designed to reduce perceived recoil, while a fully textured polymer grip with a slim-line rail will accommodate SIG light or laser accessories. The stainless-steel slide comes standard with front and rear serrations for easier slide manipulation, as well as SIGLITE night sights for faster sight acquisition under all lighting conditions.
Ron Cohen, CEO and President of SIG Sauer said the P365 is built around SIG’s new, proprietary magazine for maximum concealability, capacity and shootability. “The pistol is made for professionals and civilians alike who want a smaller, high-performance pistol that does it all," he said. “This is the ultimate, everyday concealed carry pistol.”
Disassembly is made safe and easy with a three-point takedown that does not require the trigger to be pulled. A generous trigger guard undercut also allows for a higher hand position and better retention. The narrowing magazine design allows the upper part of the grip to be perfectly contoured to fit the shooter’s thumb when fired.
In continued partnership with Blackpoint Tactical, one of the nation’s premier holster manufacturers, SIG Sauer is offering a series of concealment holsters specifically designed for the P365. Immediately available for order are the Blackpoint APX (right) and IWB holster (left) variants.
As a complete systems provider, SIG Sauer will be launching several new products specifically designed to complement the P365, including ammunition optimized for everyday carry, a high-performance weapon light, a laser sight, a P365 compatible suppressor and a P365 air pistol.
12-Round Extended Magazine: $55.00
10-Round Flush Mag / 10-Round Base-Extension: $49.00
365 APX Holster: $79.95
