SIG Perfects Everyday Carry: P365 First Shots Video

Editor’s note: 15 round extended mags for the Sig P365 are now a thing. They’re shipping now.

The P365 is a great addition to SIG’s line. By upping the round-count, they’re posing a serious challenge to the GLOCK 43. The gun will ship with two mags. One is a flush fit that holds 10 rounds. The other has a slight protrusion for a bit of extra grip. It will hold 10, also. A third style is available  that holds 12.

This is a good-looking SIG, too. While some shooters don’t like the angular lines on SIG’s 1911s (and their .380 single-sections), the lines on this pistol are exceptionally well executed. The texture on the frame is ample, without being ostentatious. The slide’s lines are clean, too, while still providing a great grip.

The price on this one is slightly higher than some of the other single-stacks on the market, but it should be right in line with the GLOCK 43, something the too-cool-for-school GLOCK haters will, no doubt, appreciate.
