The design of this gun makes it easy to grip, which means you won’t have any issues with accuracy while shooting it. In addition, the trigger pull on this gun was designed so that your finger isn’t as likely to slip off the trigger as you’re firing, which helps prevent accidents from happening when using this weapon in public places or around family members. Let’s delve into the details.

Features of Sig P365

The Sig P365 weighs 17.8 ounces with an overall length of 5.8″, a height of 4.3″, and a width of 1.06″. It has a 3.1″ barrel and is a double-action striker fire-only firearm. It’s made from high-grade aluminum, steel alloy, and polymer parts. The handle is black hard-anodized aluminum while the slide is Nitron finished stainless steel. The grip is a black polymer. 

The P365 uses Sig’s new 10 round flush fit magazine capacity and the 12 round extended magazines with a sleeve. To change magazines, you just pull back on the slide and release it. These magazines are easy to load and unload, so you can get them ready quickly when you need to use the gun. 

The coolest feature, hands down, is the grip. There are improvements being made to virtually every component of this weapon to make it easy for anyone to carry. The one-size-fits-all approach, that Sig took, makes it easier than ever to carry concealed.

Grip/Ergonomics

One of the biggest problems with concealed carry is that many people find them uncomfortable. The P365’s grip design solves this problem by providing you with a sleek, smooth handle that fits in your hand like it was made for you.

The grip is made up of a hard-anodized aluminum handle with polymer panels on both sides that are removable. This gun comes with two sets of side panels, small and large. It is slightly curved with an angle on the bottom which makes it a very ergonomic and natural feeling. Another thing about the design is that you can hold the gun as tightly as you like and there isn’t any discomfort. Due to the thin and rounded grip, holding it tightly is not a problem. 

The ergonomics of the Sig P365 are excellent.  The gun comes with one back strap/cover already on it which gives you medium grip surface area. There are two sizes available for the backstrap, medium and large. Due to its small size, there is a bit of a beaver tail when using the medium backstrap. 

This gun is small enough to fit in your pocket but big enough you can shoot it comfortably. You’ll be able to take advantage of the full range of grip options that are available for this weapon without sacrificing comfort or safety.

Texture

The texturing on the SIG P365 is really good. There are a few details on the hand cannon that may not be noticed by some at first glance, such as the checkering on both sides of the slide and rounded corners on the grip to make it easier to conceal in your pocket. 

The grip texturing provides a non-slip surface, which is especially important when it’s wet outside. The texture on the side panels is deep enough to provide a firm grip but not so aggressive that it makes holding the weapon uncomfortable for extended periods of time.

Magazine Capacity and Bullets

The Sig Sauer P365 is a magazine-fed firearm and as such, you’ll need to load rounds into the magazine before you can fire it. The 10 round magazine works great for those who prefer carrying concealed.

The P365 uses 9mm bullets that come in a variety of types and weights depending on how much velocity or stopping power you want. This means you can choose the type of bullets that are best for your needs. The magazine is easy to load and unload, which makes it easier to get back in working order quickly when you need your firearm.

Trigger Mechanism

Like all Sig guns, the P365 comes with one of their patented trigger systems. The long double-action trigger pull is designed to prevent accidental discharges while also making it easy for you to shoot the gun accurately.

The short reset makes it easier to pull off multiple shots quickly and precisely without having to wait on the trigger mechanism between each round. This is a great gun for those who want something compact but more powerful than a typical pistol.

The Sig P365 features a smooth, crisp trigger so you can fire it effectively. It’s also easy to handle and control even during rapid firing or stressful situations.

Slide Stop Mechanism

The slide stop is designed to be easily accessible and operate smoothly, so you can safely release the slide after firing around.

The high-capacity magazine makes it easy to get rounds downrange quickly but also allows you to enjoy multiple mag changes during one range visit. This weapon is great for those who need something powerful enough for long-term defensive use but small enough to carry under their clothing.

Asthetics

Sig has a reputation for making firearms that look as nice as they perform. This gun is no exception.

The P365 comes in 9mm, giving you plenty of power without requiring a lot of room or weight to store it. The smooth, matte finish provides a nice texture that’s not too aggressive but still prevents the weapon from becoming slick with use.

Size and Dimensions

The gun is small enough to carry discreetly but also packs the punch of a full-size weapon. This firearm was designed with concealment in mind, which means it’s easy to carry no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

The P365 measures 5.8 inches with an overall height of 4.3 inches and a width of 1.06 inches. The barrel length is around 3 inches. It weighs 17.8 ounces, which makes it lightweight enough to carry with ease but also gives you plenty of heft so you can feel confident about taking shots at close range.

The P365 is about the same size as many other pistols on the market today and features a compact design that makes it easier to store in your home or bring with you when you’re out and about.

Line of Sights

The sights on this gun make it easy to get a good line of sight and help you take accurate shots. You can use the Sig Sauer P365 without having to remove your optics, which means it’s adaptable enough for different kinds of users. It also comes with real metal sights that are designed not to fade or become hard to see after long-term use.

The front sight features a green luminescent ring around the tritium vial making it easy to pick up quickly. The rear square notch sight has no paint on it but does have white vertical serrations, which aren’t bad for picking up your sights in most lighting conditions other than complete darkness.

Safety Mechanism

The safety mechanism is designed to be easily accessible and operate smoothly, so you can safely release the slide after firing around. There are separate safeties on the P365. The trigger is your first safety. It must be pressed completely to take the gun off the safe. The grip safety activates when you hold the grip of the gun and keep pressure on it. 

This gun comes with a decocking lever that locks the hammer in place to prevent accidental discharges. To use it, simply hold the hammer back and put the safety into its “down” position. This makes it safer to carry around without worrying about the gun going off if you knock it against something or lose your grip during a struggle.

Magazine Release

The P365 comes with two 10 round magazines but will fit higher capacity mags up to the factory specs. Nowadays, right out of the box, it comes with a couple of 12 round magazines. It’s a double stack design, which means it holds more rounds in less space.

Trigger

The trigger on the P365 is made of alloy steel.The trigger is not made for precision work or marksmanship competition pistols, but it works well for a concealed carry and personal defense pistol. It is the best trigger in its class (9mm Micro Compact).

One thing that many people will notice when firing the gun is the felt recoil of the firearm.  But, it isn’t the recoil that is the problem; it has to do with the slide’s action. When you are firing the firearm, the slide will eject the casing and then it basically slams into place for another round to be chambered. It’s an excellent trigger for a daily carry pistol.

Maintenance of Sig P365 

The SIG P365 is a really simple gun to maintain. In order to maintain your firearm, it’s important that you get rid of any excess lubricant. It’s also a good idea to get a cloth or something that you can use to clean off the hammer and anywhere else where there might be excess lubricant. 

After you’ve cleaned everything off, it’s important to re-lubricate your firearm regularly so that the parts don’t start rusting together or begin sticking. You should also regularly check on your gun for any damage or malfunctions that might need to be repaired.

Shooting the SIG P365

The gun has much less recoil than you would expect for a gun of its size.  It is an easy gun to shoot quickly and accurately. The sights are nonadjustable, but also do an excellent job of picking up quickly and easily. The trigger is very crisp. The trigger reset is also short enough to make follow-up shots quick and easy without allowing the shooter to be sloppy on their presentation.

The controls are all metal levers that you mash down to release. These controls are all easily accessible no matter what your grip looks like. The magazine release is large enough to be quickly mashed with your strong hand thumb, but not so large as to let the magazine fall free on its own when the release is actuated. 

The slide lock lever is right where it should be for quick actuation by pulling your thumb away from the gun to engage it. The slide lock lever is also long enough that you can use your entire hand against it to lock the slide back if needed. This is a nice feature for clearing malfunctions, checking out clearances in ‘slide-lock mode, or if you are injured and need to operate the gun one-handed.
