You guys realize that Keltec made a gun that is basically the same size with the same size capacity as the P365 almost 20 years ago in the Kel-tec P11, right? We can argue that the Sig is the better made gun, but they were not the first to market a pistol of this size with a 10 round magazine.
True. SCCY has similar specs too.

I am Glock guy but am also an engineer. Sig was the first company who actually designed a near single stack pistol based off the geometry of the cartridge, instead of just scaling down one of their full size handguns, in order to maximize capacity - and a 10 round capacity, the same as my chubby G26, is fantastic for its size.
I shot my dad's 365 a few months ago - trigger was different than my Glock, but pretty good for a pocket pistol - I had a 2" 5 shot grouping at 5 yards on my 2nd magazine. Light but not a kicker, reliable, small, not bad on ergonomics. This will be my next firearm purchase, despite having a Glock 19, 26, and AR9 that accepts Glock mags. The Glock 43 just cannot compete for a small carry gun.
I’d bet Glock has seen a dramatic decrease in 43 sales. I’d bet that Glock, and other manufacturers, will be taking aim at those lost sales; if not by shot show then ASAP. The p365 WILL force innovation.

Re: Sig 365 question

I will say that I have let some pistols go in the past, some I don’t miss and some I do...my Glock will always stay. I find its “stability” comforting...in some ways its simply being present in my safe affords me the liberty to experiment with other makes and models. A Glock to me is almost akin to an insurance policy.

Re: Sig 365 question

I have heard that sig has redesigned the striker assembly in the p365. They have thickened the portion where the tip meets the body of the striker. Mine is an October 2018 made unit and appears to have this redesigned part.

Sig has stated that the initial return rate of p365s for striker breakage was 0.08%. I am not exactly sure what the industry average is but I’d imagine it is probably in that ball park.

The internet is a great place to divulge information about products and as a consumer we benefit from this free exchange of information. I can imagine that the 80 or so individuals out of the first 100,000 that had their sig break were pretty disappointed. However, this model IS special; it does something which we as consumers never before thought possible. While there are many other manufacturers who make exceptional weapons, Sig has in the 365 sent them scrambling. We will be the beneficiaries of this renewed arm race.

The 365 has made many people stop and reevaluate their stable of carry guns. This can make people a bit “cranky” as we all search for the greener grass of carry perfection and to some extent believe we have found it.

This gun is under high scrutiny.

I have a “few” great pistols; the 365 keeps them put away. This kinda makes me sad.
