Today Springfield Armory released a new pistol that they have been teasing for about a month called the Hellcat.
The Hellcat is essentially a direct competitor to Sig’s P365. It is a micro-compact 9mm pistol with a flush fit 11rd magazine and extended length 13rd magazine.
There are two variations (one with and one without the optics cut).

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! Continue reading
Quick new product update!
We received news that Sig Sauer is going to be releasing an extended 15rd magazine for the P365. Obviously it will extend longer than the 12rd magazine. We’re told they should start shipping from Sig sometime in the next couple months.
We don’t have a photo yet but will post one as soon as we can obtain a mag or photo. We’ve got the new magazine listed on our website where you can enter your email address to get a stock notification. The part number is MAG-365-9-15. Continue reading
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.
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.
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
