I held it at the gun show and was in awe of the size given the capacity. I bought it and took it to the range. My first shot was in the bullseye at 5 yards, but my next two went who knows where. My fourth round clipped the first hole and this told me where the second and third went...in the same first hole. I had a ragged hole in the bullseye after 50 rounds, and a slightly larger hole after 50 more rounds at 7 yards. I just love this pistol's size, capacity, and accuracy. Those who shoot it are falling in love with it as well.

It was born in Oct 2018, and is showing primer swipe on all brass regardless of manufacturer, and the mags have a lot of finish wear after just 200 rounds. Still pretty happy with it and planning to get rid of my other subcompacts.

Congratulations and welcome to the club. I've invested in quite a bit of ordnance over the course of the past 20 years, and the 365 has impressed me more than all of the others combined! Enjoy.

The best part of the P365 is it’s only drawback for me. It’s so small I have a hard time getting a good grip on the thing. When I’m able to do that, my experience with accuracy is the same as yours. I’ve shot some remarkable groups at 25 yards with the little guy, but I almost have to grip it with my off hand first to do so.

DaBull, my experiences are identical to yours!
I had sworn to myself and others that I was going to stick with my P938. But over the weekend I took the plunge and Purchased one with an identical birthdate as yours.
I too noticed the primer swipes on all my brass. But what of it? Is this serious? Or, is it something like freckles on a pretty face?

The 365s still tend to nearly vaporize whenever they appear at my LGS as well.

I've loved mine since I bought it this last May, ( April '18 build ) and with over a thousand rounds through it so far, I readily trust it for my EDC/BUG.

My experiences with mine (July build) are the same. Insanely accurate for such a small gun. My only critique, if it really is a critique, is that the gun sometimes "feels too small" in my hands. It's not something that I can easily explain. The gun laid next to a Shield is too closely sized, but it just feels so much smaller. Yet, when I do my part, it does its part.

Welcome to the forum. I also am thinking about getting a P365, but get distracted by another P220. Wink

I've been carrying mine after 2 range trips. Total of 750 rounds fired without any issues. I don't consider striker drag an issue.

Ha ha! I know the feeling .38supersig!

Welcome to the 365 club DaBull. I love mine and can't wait to shoot it again this weekend hopefully.

I love mine. Good accurate gun, I seem ti get back on target quicker than with other guns. The only drawback is the mag does not drop out on its own when changing. Maybe that will change with time.

Thanks for the report.


I am hoping to get to shoot my Son's P-365. It too has an Oct. born on date.

I just received 2-12 round mags from TGS, to give to my son.

@T.Webb

I find myself adjusting my support hand after firing sometimes; I suppose that means my subconscious thinks I do not have a good hold on the pistol. I also find the rear corner of the 10 round mags rub my palm after a few mags. But I solved that by getting some 12 rounders for the range.

@Pal

If you have practice/range mags, you could try flicking your wrist to one side to "throw" the mag out when it is empty.

My mag issue (and a small one at that) is I have a difficult time getting a fully loaded magazine to lock in the pistol when the slide is closed. I have to slam it in with my palm or insert on an open slide (my preferred way). I think this and the magazine wear are signs that Sig really did make the smallest magazine possible and build the gun around it...meaning the thinnest grip too...which causes the non-drop free mag problem.

@fquico

I read some other posts that primer swipe stresses the firing pin and might lead to premature breakage at some point. I hope those who have shot upwards of 2500 rounds will chime in on any problems they see.

My BIL handed me his P365 at Thanksgiving. Lord did that thing ever feel perfect! I keep telling myself I won’t buy one but the temptation is incredible.

I carried mine for the first time IWB today in a small kydex holster.

I had been carrying it in my front pocket, and it was a pocket full, but do-able.

IWB the thing just disappears. I couldn't even feel it on my hip. Put the 12 round mag in it and it was perfect.


Need some more 12 round mags! Big Grin

I have two and you need 12 round mags you won't believe the difference. I took my 43 out the other day fired two mags thru it and put it back in the case. the 365 rules the subcompact world IMO.

Primer Drag:
I noticed primer drag on my first three hundred rounds. Was firing Freedom Munitions 124 gr RN ammo.
Just finished 200 rounds of Remington Military/LE 115 gr RN ammo and primer drag is too small to notice without close inspection.
I was firing a Glock G43 and noticed some wee bit of primer drag on it too..using same Mil/Le practice ammo. Either it's 115 or 124 grain difference, brand or just simply quit primer drag.
Frankly, I don't think primer drag is an issue.
Stay safe

It seems to me that the barrel should unlock quicker and slide velocity should increase as the parts wear in and recoil springs weaken, which would make it more likely that primer swipe would increase rather than decrease over time with the same ammo. If this is correct, it would mean that any differences in swipe marks between two different kinds of ammo are the result of the ammo characteristics (construction and/or ballistics), not the gun having a higher round count.

The swipe marks on my October P365 are the worst I ever have seen on a firearm. Only time will tell the long-term effects. I am not worrying about it since the initial striker brouhaha, but I intend to find out by shooting the snot out of it.
