New: Sig Sauer P365-380

Sig Sauer’s P365 pistol line has proven itself not only popular but reliable. Building on its success, Sig has now launched the latest addition to that lineup: the P365-380. As the name suggests, the new pistol is chambered in 380 ACP and as one might expect, it’s a micro-compact designed with concealed carry in mind.

Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, Sig Sauer, Inc., shared his thoughts on the new gun: “The Sig Sauer P365 is the most popular concealed carry pistol on the market today.  We have shipped millions of these pistols and until now it has only been available in one caliber. The P365-380 uses the same grip module and fire control unit as the legacy P365 with a lightened slide, a 380 barrel, and a lighter recoil spring making it easier to rack for an overall exceptionally smooth handling experience.  This pistol was designed for everyone but is an ideal option for shooters with smaller hands, as well as those who find the manipulation and recoil management of larger caliber pistols challenging.”

Perhaps one of the greatest design features of the new pistol is its compatibility not only with existing P365 holsters and aftermarket items, but its modularity. Yes, the P365-380 has the same fire control unit and grip module as the original 9mm P365. Standard capacity is 10 rounds, but 12 magazines are also an option. Also, the 10-round magazine with finger extension might be a good option for those with larger hands.
