365XL problems Login/Join

I recently made the mistake of buying a 365 XL. Of the 2 magazines that came with the pistol, 1 failed immediately. I contacted SIG and told them about the problem and the tech I spoke to wanted me to modify the magazine in an effort to get it to work. I refused and he gave me attitude. I ordered another magazine from my dealer and I had the same failure with that mag immediately. My dealer has been fighting with SIG to get that mag replaced. I now have a pistol that I cannot qualify with nor will I carry a pistol without a reload. The bottom line is I have a useless and expensive paperweight.
Has anyone else had magazine problems with the 365XL?

What exactly is the "failure". You are describing nothing, except saying "failure"? Not just failure, but failure "immediately"? What happened immediately? The CSR told you to "modify" the mag? I find that hard to believe. But, if that truly happened, you should have taken his name and reported to his supervisor. These reps will never tell anyone to modify anything. The only thing they will tell you is one of the following. It's in specs / normal, or send it in to be looked at by one of our gunsmiths. Unless you are a SIG certified armorer, they simply don't tell you to tinker with the stuff, because that would void the warranty.

Welcome to the forum, btw.

How did it "Fail"? What modification was suggested?

Place 1 round in magazine. Use LULA device to load remaining rounds.

I have not had any failures of any kind with my P365 or P365XL. I have only field-stripped, cleaned, and lubricated it as per the manual. I have not removed the FCU or otherwise futzed around with it.

Over the years, I have found that Operator Error caused 99% of any "problems" reported.

Interesting, this is the second "Junior Member" with one post who mentioned an issue with P365 magazines in the last day or so.

I guess it's certainly possible the base pad was installed incorrectly at some point.

Evil exists. You can not negotiate with, bribe or placate evil. You're not going to be able to have it sit down with Dr. Phil for an anger management session either.

^^^ At least in that case we had some information - and I've messed up mag reliability by doing a sloppy job of reassembling them myself.

Again, what exactly is the failure that happened (twice) here?

Your post says exactly squat.

Before you waste more space whining about what didn't happen, why don't you just be open and say what did happen?

I've had one for 2 months, probably have 1,00+ rounds thru it. One misfeed in the first week, nothing since.
My problem is I can't find magazines. It came with 2, looking for a couple additional mags and no one has them for the XL!

I had a magazine "issue" with one of the mags that came with a P365. I cannot offhand remember whether it would not accept the second or third round, but after looking things over it became very obvious the the lower corner of the follower was hanging up on one of the square holes on the side of the mag. In fact,
there was a small corner of the follower missing from trying to force a round in the mag.

Is this the failure that you experienced, Kudu40?

I'm around 1500rds thru my P365XL and zero issues. I've used 12 and 15rd mags with it.

I ordered two of the 15 round mags direct from Sig when they first got released. One of them loaded finem the other failed immediately. When I say "failed", I mean I loaded a few rounds (3-4) and then the follower got stuck below the loaded rounds, so the rounds rattled loosely in the mag. I pulled them out and the follower was wedged into the mag body. I used a pen to pry the follower free and it shot up and most of the way out of the mag, caught at an odd angle between the feed lips. I immediately contacted Sig who had me send in the mag, and they sent me a replacement.

I seem to recall that Sig had some problems with the first 15 round 365 mags. They acknowledged it and made it right. I don't recall anyone had an issue getting it resolved.

I am certainly no Sig fan and have shit all over them for many many years now, but one thing has always remained top shelf with them and it's their customer service. Call them yourself. Why would you have your gun shop be a middle man. Give them a call and deal direct, they'll take care of it.
