Picked up a P365 a week ago and finally got to the range yesterday.
Initial impressions prior to shooting it:
- This gun is small yet feels good in the hand (I have XL hands with sausage fingers).
-The trigger is okay but feels a bit gritty.
-The fit and finish are on par with other sig pistols.
300 rounds total, 250 rounds of Federal target 115gr and 50 rounds of Speer GLDT 124 gr +P
-Range, 25 and 50 feet
-This pistol points naturally in my hands.
-This pistol is very accurate and shots to POA. On par with my full size sigs.
-Recoil is snappy yet very controlable. It was easy to get back on target.
-By the time I had 300 rounds through it the trigger smoothed out and feels excellent
-Shot with both the flush and ext. mags. I preferr the ext. mag. Better purchase on the grip.
- I had several failures to lock back the slide. This is definetely my fault and I was able to adjust my grip to eliminate it.
- I also had 2 FTE in the first 150 rounds. It was on the federal ammo and I belive it was due to my fat thumb riding the slide. The cassing was fully out of the chamber but stuck on the barrel hood. It appears that the slide didn't come back all the way.
Over all I'm very pleased with the feel, accuracy and performance of the pistol. It definetely takes some practice to shoot a pistol this small. Proper grip is critical. A few more range sessions and a few hundred more rounds with no failures and it will be good to go for EDC.
Happy Shooting All!This message has been edited. Last edited by: MarkW,
Since you have larger hands you will love the 12rd mag. It changes the grip completely. You will fall completely in love with it.
Thanks for the range report, and happy to hear that you are pleased with your P365 thus far!
Just curious about the type of ammo that you are planning use for the next ~300 prove-in/break-in session (SD/HP vs. FMJ).
Will you run a higher ratio of SD ammo to range ammo?
"I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal labotomy."
I plan to run at least 200 rounds of the speer GLDT 124gr +P. This will be my carry ammo. Then 100 plus rounds of various FMJ.
Again I believe practice with this pistol is critical because of it's size and the fact that I have to change my grip from what is normal for me with a larger pistols. As soon as I can find 12 round mags for this thing I'm going to get several.
When I do my part this pistol has no problem hitting 8" steel at 50 feet with double taps.
I have been shooting nothing but 124 and 147 grain ammo in mine. I ran some 124 grain Federal AE in it, and the recoil was cut way down.

FTE - extract or eject?
- I also had 2 FTE in the first 150 rounds. It was on the federal ammo and I belive it was due to my fat thumb riding the slide. The cassing was fully out of the chamber but stuck on the barrel hood. It appears that the slide didn't come back all the way. Failure to Fully eject.
