I said this in the big 30 page thread, but my P365 fits perfectly in all of my Kahr K9/P9 holsters. There’s just a bit of holster overhang beyond the muzzle, but no big deal. Great fitment with a Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 and Versa Max 2, a Mitch Rosen Clipper and Garrett Silent Thunder.
I can not, however, find a magazine pouch that’ll fit the mag - it’s slimmer than any double stack pouches I currently own.
I picked up my 365 today and went straight to the range and put a 300 round mix of 115 & 124 FMJ as well as 3 different JHP. No issues at all. Did a deep clean when I got home now confident of it’s realibably. Did rapid, limp wrist,stronge, weak and 2 handed and slow fire from 15, 10, 7, and 5 yards.
Question- did the original release come with the green front site or was it the usual Siglite night sight? From the YouTube horror stories I saw this issue seemed like a gun from the new changes? Born date was 2/1/18.

I have one coming this week and I’m excited after seeing all of the positive reviews on the new revision.
But I will never understand how Sig could release this gun, have people have all sorts of issues (FTB, etc.), fix it with a second revision with a few tweaks, and have it shoot great. How were the original issues with the first release of the P365 not caught in testing? I understand missing the issue with the P320 going bang when dropped at a certain angle since it wasn’t included in the specific drop test but how are shooting failures missed with a gun in testing?
Anyways, what’s the part number on your gun?
365-9-BSS is the original release with all the issues.
365-9-BXR3 Is the new release that has the fixes.
A P365 born on 2/1/2018 seems like it would be an initial release gun.This message has been edited. Last edited by: aparoche,
Guess I got lucky. 365-9-BXR3. No wonder it run like a Swiss watch! I know my dealer got it thru Davidson’s. I guess the “3” means something too.

Sorry, you are correct. I forgot the 3 in my post. And it stands for X-Ray 3 for the sights...
But yes, you have the new model.

Anyone have a 365 and a Ruger LCP willing to post photos for size comparison? Thoughts on the size, weight, shape of the 365 for pocket carry? I haven't had a chance to see the 365 in person yet.
In my opinion the P365 is a borderline jean pocket carry firearm depending on the jean fit. My Kahr PM9 has a 1/2" shorter barrel which may make a bit of a difference depending on holster. Khakis or loose pockets are no problem for either gun.
Now on the the LCP which is a great pocket carry gun in any type of pants pocket and is quite a bit smaller in every dimension plus a lot lighter than the P365. I still pop this little LCP II in my back pocket when out for a neighborhood walk. Both guns serve a slightly different purpose, the P365 with it's great capacity and better caliber make it a natural for EDC when out in crowds and the LCP II when you are wearing a Speedo and may feel less threatened.

Thanks for the photo. If I used the P365 for pocket carry, it would be with khakis, or loose (traditional) fitting slacks. It might fit the bill. I’m a big guy; I don’t do skinny jeans or current (tight, undersized) men’s fashion in business dress. I sometimes pocket carry an LCP in a Desantis Nemesis and it just disappears. Looks to me like the 365 will be fine in terms of external dimensions since I wear looser/larger pants. Issue would be weight/bulk and feel in the pocket.
I'm a big guy, my jeans are typically wrangler relaxed fit and I have no issue pocket carrying a P365.

I carry mine in a Vedder IWB Light Tuck holster with claw attachment in the appendix position and find it quite comfortable.

I see Ryan Grizzle has the P365 on his list now,for those that want some top notch leather for their P365.
I'm about to get a P365. Turns out a friend of mine is a gunsmith and FFL. I'm told I can probably get one without the standard markup, which probably puts it in the $499 range. I just have to get ahold of him!

Apparently Stealthgear's short double stack mag carrier will work for these.

I just got 2 off Amazon from Multiholster. I use that brand all the time.

got mine last night and it fits perfectly in my Alabama pocket holster for my Kahr PM9. My dealer got 8 in yesterday and they had 1 left about 1 hr before they closed.
Picked myself up a P365 today. Feels great with the 12rd extended mag in it. Can’t wait to take it out and go shoot some.
That is the same date for mine. I haven't shot mine yet, but it feels great in my hand. I picked mine up from the LGS this past Saturday and all of the workers there wanted to fondle it. I think I got one of the first 5 that came in. The girl at the counter said the waiting list is still about 27 people deep. I'm glad I got mine when I did!
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.

I am in Brownell’s P365 holding pattern now but glad to hear the good range reports.
