SHOT 2018 release?
Looks like it has a polymer frame, interesting.
Could Sig be dipping a toe into the single stack 9mm market?
Si vis pacem, para bellum
A market that they've already been in for quite some time. Think P220(9mm), P210(A)(9mm), P239, P225(A).

And the P290. And the P938.

oojima in this house!
I think he’s talking about single stack 9 mm polymer striker.
There's an RFP out for modular handguns for CBP that includes a subcompact size requirement. Perhaps this is meant for a USG element vs. a consumer one (initially)
RFP? CBP? How about plain English for those of us who are ignorant?
Is PGT a USG? That is why a RFP is needed for a CBP!
If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit!
Sigs Owned - A Bunch
If its anything like the LC9 size, I'll buy it.
I done blowed it up real good.
LOL, sorry. A Request For Information (RFI) was let from Customs & Border Protection in Jan 2017 to replace 52,000 handguns. The follow-on would be a Request For Proposal (RFP).
Think MHS for the Army but CPB needs their own brand of special.
(PDF link at the bottom for the requirements)
Edit - looks like a "Sources Sought" was issued, meaning CBP is polling the market for interested bidders. Next step, RFP.
I'd imagine it's G43/Shield sized?
I just gave my Shield to my brother. As much as I liked it I never carried it, which means I'd never really shoot it.
I'm hoping the Sig 365 is more like a single stack HK -SK pistol. I really like the P30sk, but it just feels so fat and heavy for how small it is, especially given how light yet handy the Glock and S&W single stacks handle.
|Go ahead punk, make my day|
I hope it's drop safe.
Yes, polymer striker subcompact, like the Shield, G43,LC9.
A Shield 9 has been my EDC since 2013 it will take something very special to replace it.

Interested. Looks like an early prototype test. Rail looks like old USP design.
Are these modular designs with sub, compact, fullsize?

'RFP' I knew from my days in the building construction world. Now 'CBP' OTOH (I'm going to assume anyone whose been on the web for any length of time should by now know THAT one)...I was guessing 'Canadian', not 'Customs'. Yeah, acronyms can be a frickin' challenge to figger out.
It's a new year and SIG is bound to intro the gun at some point. So a SHOT reveal doesn't seem like much of a stretch. But it's already a crowded playing field with a lot of downward pricing pressure; good luck to them with this.
