The Sig Sauer P365 has a 10+1 capacity in a package slightly smaller than Glock’s 6+1 G43 and, unlike the Glock, includes an accessory rail and night sights from the factory. The Indiana State Police adopted them this week as a back-up and off-duty gun (Photo: ISP + Chris Eger/Guns.com)
State troopers in Indiana will soon be carrying Sig Sauer’s svelte P365 sub-compact as their standard back-up gun. The New Hampshire-based gun maker announced Monday that the 1,250-member agency had adopted the innovative 9mm pistol across the state of Indiana.
“The Sig Sauer P365 gives Indiana State Police Troopers primary carry capabilities in a sub-compact configuration,” said Lt. Col. Matt Bilkey, ISP’s assistant chief of staff operations. “Its high level of accuracy, small size, and high round capacity make it a perfect firearm for our officers, both on and off duty, and is a great counterpart to our primary duty firearm, the Sig Sauer P227.”
Sig originally introduced the P365 at SHOT Show 2018. With an overall length of just 5.8-inches, the micro-compact pistol still clocks in for work with a 3.1-inch barrel and brings a 10-round flush fit magazine along for the ride. Striker-fired, the gun uses a Nitron stainless steel slide
