I have a May build 365. The gun was flawless through about 450 rounds then the striker broke. It went back to sig and they turned it around in about 10 days with a new, updated striker. I have 1100+ rounds through it SINCE sig replaced the striker and it has been flawless. I started carrying it again when I broke the 1000 round mark after repair.


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.


And........it's no longer in my carry rotation. I'm sad to say that my 365 is on it's way back to Sig with another broken striker. They are going to evaluate it, but I told them if it is, in fact, a broken striker then I want either a complete replacement gun or a refund. No more repairs.


This is very discouraging. Do you know roughly the date of your replacement striker? Any chance it was part of the original “bad batch”? I had my original one replaced in April this year. I also have 2000 rounds through it since it was replaced and love the gun but you’re the first I’ve heard that had the replacement firing pin break. That’s not good. Can you provide any more detail of the breakage? Did it just snap off or were you getting dead trigger. Reason I ask is many where getting a dead trigger but would also still fire, which I believe is not the firing pin but another issue, like the trigger spring problem. I really want love this gun but damn this is not good.


The gun is a May 21st build date. I bought it in June. The first striker was replaced in July, after approximately 400 rounds fired. It was replaced with their upgraded striker. I actually pulled the striker after getting it back to make sure it was the upgraded striker. I had about 2000 rounds through it when it failed again. It was not a dead trigger. I load a round, the trigger clicks and no fire. No indentation at all on the primer. If I cycle the gun the trigger will reset and pull as normal, but with only a click. I didn't pull the striker to confirm it was broken, but that's the way it behaved. I didn't want to give sig a reason to say I did something to it if I pulled it. I'm asking them to replace the gun. Once I receive it I will likely replace the striker with the LSPI steel striker for peace of mind. I really love the gun and there's nothing comparable out there. $99 for the steel striker is worth the peace of mind to me.


Man that sucks! I have been pretty critical of the gun but after a few thousand rounds I’m with you and really like the gun a whole lot. Just pisses me off that sig can’t figure this out. I assume the LSI is reliable? It looks like their newer version is $69, the $99 is backordered, not even sure they still sell that one anymore. I’ve become one of those that likes to stay with oem parts but looks like I’ll make an exception here.

For the longest time I’ve been a huge fan of the 43 (still am) but the speed/accuracy I can shoot the 365 is just consistently better. Then throw in the fact I can carry 13 rounds vs 8 rounds with no additional real estate is amazing.

Does anyone know for sure if Sig will sell just the new designed striker and if so what they charge?.....Mark

There have been forum members who experienced broken firing pins and requested the new style firing pin, and have reported here that they were told "no."

Something or somebody needs to give Coen, et al
a serious wake-up call and refuse to buy any of their new guns until they adequately get the bugs out of new products and stop relying on their customers to be the "beta testers"! Most major new product designs have been plagued with problems!
Of course models of existing guns like Legion or mostly cosmetic variations of previous designs are not so plagued!

ONLY THING THAT WILL GET THEIR ATTENTION AND
ACTION IS TO CAUSE A PRECIPITOUS DROP IN SALES AND REVENUE DUE TO A CUSTOMER BOYCOTT! Would have to be done on a large scale to make any difference! If you saw "Sig Origins" on
"Gun Stories" you will see Coen in his true light. If you haven't the "On Demand" feature of your provider will likely have it.

In the mean time, and you should be seeing this first hand, there selling every one of these they can make, and could sell more if they could make more.

The percentage of bugs vs the amount they sell is next to nothing, the 365's around here don't last hours on the shelf and most dealers have a list of buyers that cant wait to get one. I have two and have run 4400 rounds thru one of them with reloads none the less with zero issues. bod 7-1


They are making them as fast as possible probably 7 days a week

Good luck trying to boycott the 365. Never going to happen.

I bought into the dread on all the forums. Guy finally called and said my 365 was in. With trepidation I arrived and saw the scourge of which you all speak.
I set aside 300 factory rounds, 115 and 124, of various makers, not expecting to get past perhaps 12 of them before disaster struck.
In a confused state, I picked up all the 300 pieces of brass that fired without any issue. None. What trickery could this be? I took it home and cleaned it. It sits on the shelf, but I am keeping a wary eye on it.

When I was having extraction issues, I asked about possibly purchasing an updated striker before I sent it in. At the time, I was told they were not available for sale. Surprisingly, when mine came back from Sig they had installed the updated version along with fixing my extraction issue.

April build with 700 rounds or so. Zero issues but I do not trust it. Not when people have had strikers or springs fail 1500-2000 rounds in. At some point I'll buy the aftermarket striker made of better material but I like the VP9SK too much to bother with the 365 unless I need to be more discreet.

So, it made it back to Sig and it was indeed a broker striker. I received the email today and they are going to completely replace it with a new gun. It will be shipped out to my FFL tomorrow.

I have to say that, while the problems with the gun are frustrating, it has been an excellent experience working with Sig. They have been very responsive and I wish all companies stood behind their product the way Sig has stood behind my P365.

I have 1000 rounds sitting in the safe waiting for the gun to get here. I haven't decided if I'm going to buy the LSPI striker yet, but I have a feeling I will, just for piece of mind.

To MikeNH, I understand how you feel. I love the VP9SK, but because of my work clothes I need something much more concealable for EDC.

bonanacroin: My EDC prior to the P365 was the PPSM2. That's what I've been carrying since the 365 went back. While the PPSM2 is good gun, it really makes me miss the P365.

Well I picked mine up about a month ago, and finally shot it this weekend. I put 200 rounds of cheap aluminum cased ammo through it, and 50 of Winchester Ranger. I’m waiting on a case of Ranger to get here and I’ll put another 200 of that through it and I’ll call it good to take to work and put another 100 Rangers through to qualify.

One failure to eject at around 200 rounds, but it was being shot fast and was quite dirty and hot at that point.




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

I rented one at the local range about two months ago. I had to buy their ammo, which I think was Federal. I grabbed a few spent casings and there was some drag on the primers, almost looked like a dash instead of a dot. A few weeks ago I was in there, asking when they'd be getting more P365s in for sale. They said their range rental had just gone back to SIG for a broken striker, but that they had a batch of 20 coming in two weeks. I want one, but it'd be my only 9mm gun and I don't really want another caliber to support. And in AZ I don't have to be very discreet about keeping things concealed, so I usually carry larger pistols and just don't care if I print. Still, that rental gun did shoot nice and was accurate. When good deals start popping up, I will be ready to pounce. But that might be a while.

Sig will never have to worry about getting another cent from me after ruining my perfectly good 320 and then ignoring my requests to make it good.
