We’ve heard rumblings for the first part of this year that Sig was going to release a new P365 pistol but we didn’t know what it would be. We saw some rumors that there might be a P365 Legion and then logically a longer slide would be awesome. Well that’s what Sig is releasing… The P365 XL.
The part number is 365XL-9-BXR3 and UPC code is 798681618798.
The Sig Sauer P365 is a larger P365 with longer slide and taller grip. It has a 12rd flush fit magazine where the standard P365 has a 12rd magazine. Out of the box it comes with a flat trigger too!

Please note that we’re working off of very limited information and most of what we know is based on the sell sheet and visual observations of the new pistol. Specs, timing and features are subject to change.
Estimated shipping to start sometime around July or August and quantities will be very limited. We’ve added the P365 XL to our online store where you can add your email address for stock notifications (and order when available). View it now: 365XL-9-BXR3
- XSeries P365 Grip Module with Integrated Carry Magwell and Extended Beavertail
- Flat Trigger with a 90 Degree Break
- Optic Ready Slide Compatible with Romeo Zero and RMSc Optics
- XRay3 Day/Night Sights
- 3.7” Barrel for Increased Accuracy While Retaining Concealability.
- (2) 12rd Steel Magazines
As you see above, Sig is releasing a new Micro sized optic called the Romeo Zero. We don’t know how far out they are for production but suspect the P365 XL will be released well before the Romeo Zero.
Below is the sell / spec sheet from Sig on the new P365 XL. We’ll submit orders immediately but we will not accept customer orders until they start shipping to us. Availability will be extremely limited early on.
Based on what we’re seeing above, we believe this is a taller grip and has the longer flush fit 12rd magazine. We are expecting the current P365 10rd magazines will not fit in this one. We’ll post more details when they become available. We are interested to see if there is interchangeability with the current P365 grip module or if the P365 XL slide will fit on a regular P365 frame.
There are quite a few questions we have that we’ll try to get answered and share here as an update when we receive information. Some of those questions are below. Feel free to leave comments and we’ll attempt to get your questions answered too.
- Will current P365 12rd magazines work in this model or can the sleeve be removed so the mags fit in the P365 XL?
- Can slides be interchanged between the P365 XL and regular P365?
- Will there be a manual safety version?
- Will the fire control unit fit in a regular P365 grip module (which would allow the use of 10rd mags)?
Also new and coming: Sig P320 X5 Legion
We had a request for a comparison of the regular P365 to the XL. The photos were shot from different angles so they aren’t perfect. It gives a rough visual estimate:

Update 7/1/2019: Sig Sauer has started shipping the P365 XL. We received notification overnight that the first batch is on its way to our store. They will be in short supply initially so please be patient if you’re seeking one. You can order (when in stock) on our store’s P365 XL product page.
Update 7/2/19: The first shipment of P365 XL pistols has been received and we shot some comparison photos between the P365 XL and regular P365. We also compare them with the various magazine offerings and show you the difference in size on the magazines.
Update 7/10/19: We had an opportunity to shoot a P365 XL and our initial impressions are excellent. We were able to confirm that you can swap slides on the P365 and P365 XL and they function flawlessly. The grip on the P365 XL feels excellent in your hand. The trigger is very crisp and the pistol really shoots well for a handgun that is still relatively small. We will post a video as soon as possible showing the slides swapped. There is still no word as of this update on ordering stand alone P365 XL grip modules, P365 XL slides or conversion kits, or 12rd flush fit P365 XL magazines. We will order and stock any of these components if and when they become available.
