I recently obtained one of the newer models with the thumb safety. I find that as I near the end of a full magazine, I notice my trigger finger becoming sore. Years ago, I traded in a Glock 23 for the same problem and since that experience, avoid any pistol with a Glock-style trigger. It appears that with recoil, my finger slides to the bottom edge of the trigger which is sharp enough to irritate my finger with repeated contact. I am considering the flat trigger but both Sig and Grayguns show it "out of stock" so maybe I am not alone with this issue. So far, my 9mm Shield is much more comfortable to shoot and fits my hand better. Both seem very accurate. Anyone else have this problem with the Sig ?
No such problem.
The only problem I have is, with sustained rapid firing, the little gun gets hot real quick. And, anything metal is very hot, including the trigger. But, this is not a real world issue, in terms of self defense. So, not going to lose sleep over it.

Easily remedied. With all my Glocks, I do the following:
1) Protect the trigger guard with masking or painters tape.
2) Use some fine emery or sandpaper.
3) Smooth/reshape the offending tip area.
4) When finished, rub a lube into the area. I use Ultima Lube II. Blends in with the rest of the trigger.
The sharpness of the tip will vary from gun to gun. On some guns, the mold ridge on the trigger guard has to be slightly smoothed as well. Also, hand size, grip and adapters (if any) can contribute to the problem.
The tip of the finger is very sensitive. Doesn't take much to aggravate it.

I didn't find any issues at all with shooting the P365, even after several hundred rounds at a time. I've put straight triggers in my P365's, which I like, but don't notice much, if any difference in how they shoot or feel.

I've never had the issue you speak of with my 365, or any other handgun for that matter.
I've got 1600 rounds through mine over the last year plus and numerous range sessions that I fired a hundred rounds or more.
"Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying who shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, here am I, send me."
I had a shooter complain to me at the range that the trigger on his Sig P365 was making his finger very sore , after watching him grip and shoot his gun , I told him he was putting his trigger finger too close to the bottom of the trigger when fired, he made the adjustment and his finger felt better, some times a little adjustment in our grip as well as trigger placement can make a big difference..every gun I own has different characteristics, and I had to make adjustments to be comfortable with the gun...
Finally maybe you've got a hit.
After about 100 ? 150 rounds with my 365, I get a very small area of pain on the inside of the last joint of my trigger finger. (When I say inside I mean between trigger and middle finger.) No redness, and interestingly persists a couple days. Not a bother, but I figure I need to play around with trigger finger positioning. Let us know if a flat trigger helps -- I've wondered the same.
By the way, I have small hands.
Great little gun, ain't it?

not lost...I think
Top Gun Supply has what you desire, and they’re a great company to work with:
GG Flat Trigger
Thanks, however, I note they want $10 more than MSRP.
Reading this I tried dry firing my P365 with my finger at the bottom of the trigger. I didn't notice any problems pulling the trigger but as my finger slid forward, rubbing along the inside of the trigger guard, there was some annoying pinching or biting or whatever.
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun.
Brownells has Sig and GGI flat triggers in stock.
Not that I can find nor does Midway.

I had this exact problem with my P365. The gun was too small for my hands to get a solid grip purchase. I put a hogue handall jr grip sleeve on it, and it made it worlds better. Originally I couldn't get through 20 rounds without pretty severe pain. After I installed the grip sleeve, I could shoot a box of 100 with only minor irritation.
I think I got the grip sleeve for like $7 on Amazon...for that price it's worth a try. The 365 shoots like a Lazer...but not if you're flinching because it hurts every time you pull the trigger.
^^THIS^^ Had the same problem. The Hogue grip fixed it as well as reducing the perceived recoil.
Even better than the original sleeve...
