Striker Fire Excellence. The Sig Sauer P365 is a modular, striker-driven platform that is arguably the most compact, high-capacity pistol on the market at the moment.
This particular handgun is a Sig Sauer P365 chambered for 9mm. For concealed carry, it is the ideal configuration in the series that easily hides and is capable of going anywhere. It weighs in at only 17-ounces empty, holds 12- rounds in an extended magazine or 10- rounds in a flush magazine, and has a barrel length of 3.1- inches. A set of X-Ray sights ride on top of the slide, are highly visible, easy to use, and track well.
Striker-fired pistols have enjoyed great popularity due to the nature of their trigger operation. One of the big benefits is the striker trigger pull tends to be much shorter and lighter in terms of travel and weight than double-action, hammer-fired guns. This is due to the fact that most striker pistols are partially pre-cooked when the slide is cycled, meaning the trigger has to do less work.
Less work for a shooter’s trigger finger typically results in greater accuracy downrange. Unlike the tabbed trigger safety of a Glock, the Sig Sauer P320 has a smooth trigger face– which is more comfortable to shoot during extended range sessions. It has ambidextrous magazine and slide releases for easy operation while firing from either strong or weak hands, and with right or left-handed shooters.
It carries a stainless steel slide that sits atop a durable polymer frame whose surface texture provides a secure grasp when drawing or firing the pistol. It has just the right amount of stippling to add solid traction without abrading the hand. With the grip angle of a 1911 and the perfect amount of palm sell, the pistol maintains a more natural vertical hand orientation that manages recoil extremely well.
The Sig Sauer P365 has a black Nitron slide that is extremely corrosion plus wear-resistant. In case you are unfamiliar with Nitron, this is Sig’s term for the Ionbond finish that is administered at a specialty coating company’s third-party facility. Ionbond is a firearm’s finish that is applied through a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) process. This involves the depositing of diamond-like carbon coatings via a vacuum and results in a finish that will provide years of protection against wear while retaining a nice appearance.
One of the more unique features of the P365 is the ability to disassemble the pistol and remove the slide without having to pull the trigger to get it apart. This is accomplished via a single rotating lever located on the left side of the frame. Simply triple-check to make sure the weapon is unloaded, lock the slide to the rear, rotate the lever down and the slide effortlessly separates from the frame.
The trigger pull is butter smooth and listed at 5.5-6.5 pounds.
