We've recently been able to order and expect to receive a variety of P365 related parts.
There are quite a few reasons to have spare parts available, perhaps most importantly in the event that the firearm becomes discontinued. This is not likely anytime soon with the P365 but we did recently have a customer needing spare parts for his Sig 556 variant (non -XI 556) and we could barely locate any parts.
Here are the parts that will be available very soon: Continue reading
Phil Strader, of Sig Sauer, put out some frequently asked questions and answers for the P365. These seem to be recurring inquiries.Hello all,P365 production is still increasing as we continue to build capacity to meet incredible demand. We have shipped tens of thousands of P365s with overwhelmingly positive responses not only from our commercial customers, but from law enforcement and professional end users around the world. In my 25 years of law enforcement and industry experience, I have rarely seen this level of excitement and positive reception around any single firearm. Although there have been a limited number of striker and trigger return spring issues with this new platform, our return rates for these two parts are still extremely low…approximately 0.25% combined, which we believe is below industry standards for any type of return.The P365 has received an unprecedented amount of praise and activity both in social and traditional media. However, in the age of the internet, readers are sometimes exposed to grossly inflated or even non-existent issues. To address some of these concerns, we have compiled the most prevalent questions we’re seeing online and in our customer service department.
We follow quite a few Facebook groups to stay on the front line and monitor consumer discussions. There is a post in the Facebook group Sig Sauer P365 (https://www.facebook.com/groups/306851383159861/) by Phil Strader:
Again, thanks for everyone’s input and feedback with regards to the P365. There have been isolated incidents of the pistol’s failure to return to battery. Although this can possibly be traced back to a grip issue (whether unlocked wrists or high thumbs), we do not want even rare instances of issues to make our customers lose confidence in the P365. Therefore, we are tweaking the gun to improve RTB conditions. This will help to allow every 365 user to experience what so many have already expressed online in very positive reviews. We are making these adjustments now and will resume shipping very shortly. Thanks again for everyone’s patience. Continue reading
Reports started appearing on Facebook over the last week that some (not all) of the first P365's shipped had defective front night sights (they didn't glow in low light). A relatively small total quantity of P365's have shipped to date (total quantity unknown but likely between 200 and 500). As more consumers received some of these early produced pistols, a few more reports popped up that front sights were defective. Continue reading
We were able to take some P365 comparison photos!
Shown in the photos below are a Sig P250 chambered in 9mm, Springfield XDS chambered in .45 ACP, Ruger LCP chambered in .380 ACP, and Sig P365 chambered in 9mm. A few photos at the end show a Salient Glock 43 chambered in 9mm.
Hopefully these will help provide some detail on overall size of the P365.
Sig just released a second P365 variant, this one with X-Ray 3 sights. The rest of the specs seem to be the same as the original model.
Part number: 365-9-BXR3
UPC Code: 798681572762
Update 2/9/18: We've published a separate post explaining the change in P365 part numbers.
