Holy crap! That's a lot of rounds through a small pistol. I wonder how many J-frames were ever actually tested to that high a round count vs fired 5 times and dropped in a drawer.

I just picked mine up today after a 6 week wait. Manufacture date of 9/6/18. I’ll shoot it this weekend and report back.

I disassembled it to clean and lube and the takedown lever was nearly impossible to turn 90 degrees down. Finally got it down all the way but my fingers are killing me. Anyone else experience this? I assume this improves.

Put another 150 rounds through her yesterday, among 3 of us shooting. Not one "hiccup" of any kind and others remarked it was a very accurate little gun!
My total round count is only about 400 now.

Due to reliability problems with Critical Duty, from loading 135 gr into mag to going into batter, extraction and ejection of same, shot only 115 gr yesterday, not Critical Duty, and everything was fine.

As an aside, Sig once said they were loading a special round for this gun? Have heard it will have lower recoil? What is needed and should be advertised like crazy, is round should have "low
flash, fast burning powder" in order to maximize
velocity for maximum penetration and expansion from a short barrel, making it ideal for "other" short barreled 9mm like my Kahr PM9, Ruger LCR 9,etc! Reasons for "low flash" should not reiteration here.

It's not that much. If someone is carrying a pistol daily, a box of ammunition a week isn't much at all to do at a minimum, which is just 200 rounds a month; twelve months that's twenty four hundred rounds.

If I'm carrying a J-frame, I'm going to plan on at least that at a minimum, and I don't think that's going to maintain proficiency, really, but it's a start.

Whether big or small, the P365 needs to be able to stand up to a regular diet of ammunition for training.

I carry my G43 a lot, and when I stop in to shoot it at the range, it usually sees several hundred rounds at a time. I don't get to do that all the time because of scheduling, but I do have a core belief that if I'm going to carry a firearm defensively then I have an obligation to ensure that I'm at least competent enough that I'm not endangering others should the need arise to use the firearm. The same will be true of the P365, if at some point I find myself confident enough in it to carry.

Have you tried Speer's Gold Dot Short Barrel or Federal's HST Micro loadings?

I tried about sixty rounds of each with my 365 at an indoor range and did not observe much, ( if any ) in the way of muzzle flash, ( as quality defensive rounds shouldn't produce, ) and ended up selecting 124gr +P Speers since they grouped the tightest for me.

I'm not arguing that a box a week is a bad idea, but I'd bet there isn't one CCW holder in 100 that shoots that much. That's why most of these pistols will never experience the 1000 round plus failures that some have noted. Again, not saying that we should expect the pistols to fall apart, but SIG (and other companies) probably aren't going to get a huge percentage returned.

ARMT. I'm a "Nam vt, too! Have used Gold Dot in the past and they make quality ammo; but haven't tried the Federal: but see they are bringing back Hydra
Shock, which was carry load from years ago. May have to break down and try a box of each: but did you notice muzzle flash in HST compared to Gold Dot?

Oh, no! Lol.. I don't go quite that far back, ( Vietnam ) but I am an old aircraft Armament Dawg.

From what I remember, the HSTs and Gold Dots were about nil to none for muzzle flash. I fired them at an indoor range without the greatest lighting.

ARMT, if you don't go back that far, I'm talking to a kid! Ha, I'm just jealous!

Thanks for clarification, no light or low light is absolutely best test for low flash!

Just got. Haven't shot yet, because wanted to disassemble first to check and oil. Takedown lever is really tough, but finally got down all the way. However, when pulling back slide slightly as per book instructions, then letting go to pull forward and off—it refused to move forward, not to mention off.

Suggestions appreciated!

The first couple times taking the slide off of mine was similar to what you describe.

I finally ended up giving mine a firm 'bop' with the heel of my hand and it came off. I wrote it off to the pistol being new and tight. Whenever I remove the slide from the frame now, it's much easier.

2350 rounds on a March 28 build, without any issues.
Love everything about this gun: Ergos, shootability, capacity, ease of disassembly, etc.

I just traded for mine 5 days ago. It was made on July 2nd. I experienced the same thing as you and then couldn't get the slide to go back on. I had to *gasp* resort to reading the instruction manual to figure out how to put the slide back on and that wasn't real helpful so a quick You Tube video showed me the error of my ways. Once I learned you have to hold the take down lever and push it farther clockwise the slide went on easily but my thumb was definitely sore after putting the slide back on. I'm hoping that will smooth out as the gun gets broken in.

Just to update, I now have over 2000 rounds through it since returned from Sig. I haven't counted but probably more than twice that in dry firing. Zero problems. It is now my primary carry.

That's what reloading will do for you, I honestly just cant put this 365 down. I burn thru a minimum of 300 rounds every time I take it out. I also shoot my 19 but I usually just shoot the 5 mags I have loaded for it and go back to the 365.


My reloads I shoot thru it are RMR 124 gr jacketed RN 7.7 gr AA#7 500 cci primer so the rounds are boarder line +p starting load, so they are not wimpy rounds. I shoot HST124 for SD and they feel a little tame compared to my practice rounds.

I just put nearly 300 rounds through it (250 Remington FMJ and 40 Federal HSTs) and it was flawless. Great trigger, ergos, and very pleasant, manageable recoil. The X Ray sights are nice also. I looked at the ejected casings for firing pin drag on the primer and there was just the slightest hint of that. Disassembly — specifically the takedown lever — was far easier also.

I am very optimistic about this 10/12+1 9mm pistol because it is just about the same size as my Glock 42 (a 6+1 .380). A couple more problem free range visits and it will be my primary carry gun.

G-Man, The take down lever and slide lock
work together. Push up on the slide lock
and the take down lever will easily push
down. Then push the slide on.
Strange, My P365 had that issue. (Trying to take the slide off. I sent it back to Sig. "within spec". But when it came back the take down lever
worked find.
However, its good to understand the two__take down
lever and slide stop do work together.
Hopes this helps.

Stay safe

My feeling also. For a subcompact it shoots like a much bigger gun. Love the sights and the trigger, mine has been flawless. June date. Still I only have about 400 rounds thru it and hope it continues to run well. Very pleased with it.
