One matter that recently surfaced was on striker tips fracturing...

Some P365 customers have also noticed “primer drag”. This is a result of the fast slide speed and unlocking time of this platform. It is completely normal and has absolutely no effect on striker endurance.

...


Can you elaborate on the “primer drag”? It certainly seems that some lateral force must be applied to the striker tip to achieve those “drag marks”. It seems to me that a striker is designed to exert force in line with its position, that is perpendicularly to the face of the primer. In other words, to strike the primer straight on. If the fast slide speed and unlocking time result in the primer being “dragged” sideways against the striker tip, how can that have no effect on striker endurance?

I’m not saying that the striker can’t be engineered to withstand this force, but it certainly seems like it is something that needs to be addressed.

Don’t you watch baseball? Bats break ALL THE TIME! They’re better off carrying metal rods. But...what if they get into a fight, and a forging error in .08% of metal rods occurred... trust me, they’re better off living their lives in constant fear.

Mr. Strader,

It sure would be nice if you identified the serial numbers of "bad batch" of firing pins on the guns that might be affected. Or at least the build date range of those that might be affected along with a solution.

I have a feeling this is an announcement, not a conversation.

Perhaps those that invest the expense and time to own and carry should expect that what they carry will be there when things come unwound, rather than their hand occupying a paperweight.

Appreciate the information.

This is why I said I was going to wait a year to pick up a P365. Let others work out the bugs.

That, plus I have yet to see one at a gun shop. I’ve never seen one available for sale, anywhere, except on Gunbroker.

You can find them, if you are patient and you get lucky. I was searching one day and saw that Cabella's showed a limited number in stock. I called the store and was able to reserve one (they had four available).

Upon arrival, two hours later, all were sold or reserved. It was much less expensive than the listings on gunbroker.

So far, close to 400 rounds and no issues.

You can shoot mine, but you can't buy it!

Thanks Tim, I would love to, but I left the ATL for sunny Florida some time ago. Be well.

This.

But I’m going to guess that they don’t really know.

I’m glad the issue is resolved going forward , but how do I know if mine is one of the guns effected?



From the OP

For consumers that have any questions about the P365 or any other Sig Sauer product, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer service department at (603) 610-3000.


I'd suggest those with concerns should call the number, give them your SN, seems like it was covered pretty well.

Well you’re more than welcome to try mine out, had a friend lend me his before I bought mine.... I’ll pay it forward... I’m in central Florida

I agree. Make current production strikers available to P365 customers.

I just got my P365 back today with it's new striker. After feeling unlucky and bummed out (.08%) I'm actually glad my striker broke after only 350 rounds and 200 dry fires. I quite possibly no longer have a ticking time bomb...

Honestly I don’t trust a word anybody at Sig says. They have proven themselves to be a very untrustworthy company. One mans opinion.

Drag marks on the primer indicate a barrel lockup that needs redesigned. Broken firing pins at a rate of 8 per 10,000? Probably ten times that amount.

Mind your manners, bubbatime. The man was under no obligation to say anything to us. You can believe it or not believe it, but you will kindly be polite to my guests.

Today after shooting three boxes of ammo: 100rds Blazer Brass 115gr, 50rds Federal HST 147gr. , mag dumps/rapid fire, when I got home to clean my guns I noticed the front sight has nearly walked out.
total rounds through gun, 530.

One drop of permanent loctite will fix that sight.

Maybe I’m wrong here but, if this was a vendor issue that make the defective firing pins at startup. I’m pretty confident that they made a lot more than 24,28 or even a couple hundred firing pins the first day.

Loctite should not be required on any pistol sight in a dovetail.
