Glock fan...in fact I consider the Glock 19 the perfect gun...

That being said the P365 is the gun I carry most...just a really fine weapon...may buy a second. Still adapting to the grip angle. However, the P365 will be the gun I carry when I retire.

Dang this thread. I just got back from the range, where I rented a P365. It was very nice. I’ve been resisting up to now, but my resolve is weakening. Might have to start shopping around for one Eek

^^ I have seen and have some base plates from several different companies. I think these are the best available. I'm not affiliated with the company. NDZ Performance

I love hearing about how the same lightbulb went off for others (as it did for me) with regards to the P365. Good for you, Q. It is a fantastic carry gun.

Thanks. Looks like the same baseplates. Eighteen bucks seems high for a baseplate, but they are machined from aluminum. I may order some to try out.

Live around the corner from you, AGR outdoors sells the 365 for $489 if you need a "backup"

I have 3000 rounds through mine and agree with everything you put in the post. Enjoy

I’m at “only” 4700 rounds on my 365, which was a March, 2018 Build. I consider it a perfect edc handgun. 12131: I went the other way - first Sig. was the 365, followed by 225-a1, 226 ase, and soon to be 229 Legion Sao.

I have several holsters for my Kahr PM9 and they all fit the P365 like a glove. Don Hume leather holsters are nice and very cost effective. I used to buy at Gunners Alley.

I bought a Don Hume JIT from Gunners Alley for mine. It's a great little holster, terrific bang for the buck.

I checked out several holsters and ended up with the Garrett Silent Thunder. I'm very happy with it, especially like the leather lining.

Ok.. been holding off on the 365 because of all the issues reported here but Q's thread may push me over the edge.

Is there a way to check for the manufacture date? I want to check for that at the counter before paying. Thanks.

SIG places the production date on a sticker attached to the oem plastic case. Ask to see the case.


I know a little about a lot of things, but I don't know everything. I'm in the minority these days.

Ok thanks. Is there an "after date" that I should look for in case the LGS has old stocks?

Not following the last part re "after date". The date on the case is supposed to be the actual production date of the pistol inside. I think it was a good idea for SIG to include this information since a few people complain and equate the earlier production with issues. It also eliminates calls to their customer service for 'birth date'.

FWIW, mine is one of those earlier dates, Feb 2018 if I recall correctly. I've put 600 rds of fmj and jhp of several manufacturers through mine. I intentionally tried to get it to fail, but no issues. That's not to say 'something' can't happen. It's a man made mechanical device. I could shoot 1,000 rds through it and it MIGHT fail at 1,001 rds. There's no guarantees. But I have complete faith in mine as do the larger majority of owners who shoot them. I doubt many P365 pistols sit on the shelf of a local gun shop for long due to the popularity. But if this is of concern, find the freshest one and enjoy it.

I just picked up a NIB April 2019 dated P365. Traded a guy for a Glock 26 that I had collecting dust.

I had fondled one before, but I still marvel at how small it is for its capacity. It's practically identical in size to my old Kahr CM9, but with a significantly better trigger and sights, and nearly double the capacity.

I'll still likely carry a G19, P320 Compact, or M&P 2.0 Compact most of the time. But once I put it through its paces, the P365 will be great for sticking in my pocket in a Remora while mowing the lawn or running to the gas station. Especially with a 15 round spare magazine in the other pocket.

Comparison shots with the Kahr CM9 (which is the budget version of the Kahr PM9):

Finally got to put some rounds into this brand new gun of mine. Gun was quickly field stripped to make sure nothing was amiss. No cleaning, no lubing. Just whatever SIG already put in the gun for lubrication. Put 325 rds through it today.

200 Fiocchi 124 FMJ
50 Winchester Ranger-T 124 +P JHP
25 Remington Golden Saber 124 +P BJHP
25 Speer Gold Dot 124 GDHP
25 Fiocchi 124 XTPHP

Shooting was at 10 yards, fairly fast (but not spray-and-pray fast), to see how this little gun handle. AMAZING is what I found. Not a single hiccup. Again, so comfortable to shoot. Even +P was a piece of cake. I tend to pull left just a little. No big deal. Next time out will be a little slower shooting and focusing on accuracy.
A note on quick shooting this little gun. Due to its small size, the heat spread quickly throughout, and the thing got hot real fast. Even the trigger was too hot toward the end of the session to have continuous contact with the trigger finger. But, this is of no concerns, because in real life self defense situations, it will never get the chance to get this hot. But, just know that it will function under a little adverse condition is reassuring to me.

Also got a Comp-Tac Infidel Max for IWB carry. For pocket carry, it will be in a Sticky holster that member mrmn50 gave me a while ago. Cool

Did I say I love this amazing little gun? Big Grin
