When SIG SAUER introduced their P365 pistol in January 2018, it raised the bar for concealed-carry striker-fired pistols everywhere, hitting the gun-sales charts at #1 with a bullet (so to speak). But SIG refuses to rest on their laurels, and has just released a brand-new version of the P365: the P365 XL. This big brother to the micro-compact original P365 is actually only .8/inch longer and .1/inch wider, so consumers will find that it’s just as easy to conceal…but it offers more ammo capacity (12+1 or even 15+1) as well as just that extra little bit of size to make it easier to shoot–particularly for those of us with larger hands.
The 9mm SIG SAUER P365 XL features the XSERIES P365 grip module with an integrated carry magwell and extended beavertail, a flat trigger with a 90-degree break, and a 3.7” barrel for increased accuracy while retaining concealability. The P365 XL also sports an optics-ready slide, compatible with the new SIG SAUER Electro-Optics ROMEOZero and RMSc Optics, comes equipped with X-RAY3 Day/Night sights, and ships with two 12-round magazines (15-round magazines available separately.)
The P365XL is available for purchase at your local dealer right now, and the first customer reviews are already rolling in. Says one very happy purchaser:
SIG knocked it out of the park with the P365 XL! I love my P365, but it’s a snappy shooter for sure. With the longer slide and barrel, the P365 XL is a lot smoother! As a result, follow-up shots are a breeze with this handgun! Very controllable, even when going fast. I really like the extended beavertail, it helps me get a high, solid grip and the flat trigger is also more comfortable for me also. Plus it still fits in my Sticky holster as well! This is the carry handgun perfected as far as I’m concerned, and it works well with the 15-round mags. I just hope SIG releases a Coyote version soon so I can have that to go with my P365 NRA.
The MSRP is $599, but a quick Googling revealed some for sale right around the $500 mark. For more information, or to find a dealer near you, click here.
