With 2018 SHOT Show looming, SIG SAUER has announced the release of a new concealed-carry pistol. The gun manufacturer’s new P365 measures only 1-inch wide, 5.8-inches long and 4.3-inches tall, with a barrel length of 3.1 inches. It weighs just 17.8 ounces with an empty magazine.
The P365 features a unique grip design and higher grip-to-bore axis, which reduces perceived recoil and gives the P365 a similar feel to that of many mid-sized pistols. The grip is fully textured polymer with a slim-lined rail that 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.
“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,” CEO and President of SIG SAUER Ron Cohen in a press release. “The P365 is a result of this push. We built this pistol around our new proprietary magazine for maximum concealability, capacity and shootability. The P365 is a pistol for professionals and civilians alike who want a smaller, high-performance pistol that does it all. This is the ultimate, everyday concealed carry pistol.”
Disassembly features a three-point takedown that does not require the trigger to be pulled. A generous triggerguard 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.
MSRP for the P365 is $599. A 12-round extended magazine is $55, while a 10-round flush mag/10-round base extension are $49.
SIG’s partnership with Blackpoint Tactical will continue with the P365. A series of concealment holsters specifically designed for the pistol are immediately available for order in the Blackpoint APX and IWB holster variants. The 365 APX holster and 365 IWB holster are each $79.95.
SIG will also launch several new products specifically designed to complement the P365 in the future. Products will include ammunition optimized for everyday carry, a high-performance weapon light, a laser sight, a P365 compatible suppressor and a P365 air pistol.
