SIG Sauer’s new concealed carry striker-fired 9mm pistol
SIG Sauer, Inc. introduces its new High-Capacity Micro-Compact P365, in what the company calls “the ultimate concealed carry pistol.”
This new striker-fired 9mm pistol offers, according to the company, the perfect balance of capacity and concealment with, “unrivaled shootability and ergonomics.” The P365’s patent-pending, narrow-neck, modified double-stack magazine holds 10 rounds in both the flush-fit and extended versions, plus one in the chamber, for a full capacity of 11 rounds. An optional 12-round extended magazine equips this micro-compact pistol with full-size 13-round capacity, allowing the shooter to carry more, everyday – 365 days a year.
“The P365 is also smaller and lighter than most other pistols in its class, measuring 1in wide, 5.8in long, and 4.3in tall with a barrel length of 3.1in, weighing just 17.8oz ounces with an empty magazine,” the company describes. “The unique grip design and higher grip to bore axis reduces perceived recoil and makes the P365 as comfortable to shoot as many mid-sized pistols.”
The grip is fully-textured polymer with a slim-line rail that will accommodate SIG Sauer light or laser accessories. The stainless-steel slide comes standard with front and rear serrations for easier slide manipulation, as well as SIGLITE night sights for faster sight acquisition under all lighting conditions.
“As a company, we are relentless in our quest to be better – to constantly improve upon our existing products and to design and build superior products than those currently on the market,” Ron Cohen, CEO and President of SIG Sauer, said. “The P365 is a result of this push. We built this pistol around our new, proprietary magazine for maximum concealability, capacity and shootability. The P365 is a pistol for professionals and civilians alike who want a smaller, high-performance pistol that does it all. This is the ultimate, everyday concealed carry pistol.”
Disassembly is safe and easy with a three-point takedown that does not require the trigger to be pulled. A generous trigger guard undercut also allows for a higher hand position and better retention. The narrowing magazine design allows the upper part of the grip to be perfectly contoured to fit the shooter’s thumb when fired.
In continued partnership with Blackpoint Tactical, one of the US’ premier holster manufacturers, SIG Sauer is offering a series of concealment holsters specifically designed for the P365. Immediately available are the Blackpoint APX and IWB holster variants.
As a complete systems provider, SIG Sauer will be launching several new products specifically designed to complement the P365. Products will include ammunition optimised for everyday carry, a high-performance weapon light, a laser sight, a P365 compatible suppressor and a P365 air pistol. News will be forthcoming on each of these exciting and new P365 products. Wach this space.
