This is the ultimate, everyday concealed carry pistol.”
Interested in finding more about the new Sig Sauer? Check out the 7 things that gun owners are going to love the new Sig Sauer P365.
A Modified Double Stack Magazine
The P365 has a patent-pending narrow neck magazine design that can hold ten rounds in the magazine with one in the chamber, making it capable of holding 11 rounds even with its slim design. This is 50% over the capacity of other standard pistols in its class. There is also an option for a 12 round extended magazine clip which brings the total capacity up to 13 rounds.
Slim, Micro-Compact Design
The new Sig Sauer is perfect for concealed carry as it measures smaller than many pistols at only 1 inch wide, 5.8 inches in length, and 4.3 inches tall, with a barrel length of 3.1 inches. The entire weight of the Sig without the ammunition is a mere 17.8 ounces, making it lightweight as well as easily concealable.
Designed With the Operator in Mind
The Sig Sauer P365 is truly a pistol designed with the avid gun owner in mind. The gun is equipped with a fully textured polymer grip and a slim-line rail that makes it compatible with SIG light and laser accessories. It has a high grip to bore access to reduce the perceived recoil and a stainless steel slide that is serrated on both the front and back to make it easier to manipulate.
Safe to Disassemble and Clean
The three-point takedown to disassemble does not require a trigger pull providing increased safety during breakdown and cleaning. The easy and safe disassembly makes it an excellent option for home use.
Designed to Fit a Shooter’s Hand
The new Sig comes equipped with a generous trigger guard that is designed to accommodate a higher hand position. This is paired with the more narrow design of the magazine to help make the grip a perfect contour for a shooter’s thumb. The pronounced undercut on the new P365 helps the shooter have better contact with the pistol.
Tested for Durability
A new enhanced drop test was implemented by Sig Sauer to test the P365 for durability. The new test involved the P365 being dropped in a variety of 26 orientation positions more than 574 times on concrete at the height of 6 feet. The drop test shows the enhanced durability of the new Sig.
New Accessories to Come
Sig Sauer is working to develop a complete system by continuing to design accessories that will work together with the P365 to provide the best in protection for its owners. Some of the accessory options currently in the works include a laser sight, high-performance weapon light, compatible suppressor, and ammunition that is optimized for the everyday carrier.
There is also a line of concealed carry holsters specifically designed for the Sig Sauer P365 available through their partnership with Blackpoint Tactical. While the holsters are currently available, the rest of the accessories are now under development and expected to begin making their debuts starting Spring of 2018.
The Sig Sauer P365 spent over two years in development to create a concealed carry pistol that could meet the needs of gun owners looking for higher capacity in a smaller more compact design. Of the research that went into the P365 Ron Cohen was quoted as saying, “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.”
It was decided during this research and development that they needed to create a higher capacity magazine, not with a standard single stack or double stack design but to create something that was in between. This idea is what led to their new patent-pending design that gives the Sig Sauer P365 the capacity that gun owners desire in the compact easy to conceal design that they need.
