Sig Sauer launches new P365 concealed carry pistol
By Jacki Billings
Sig Sauer dropped a new concealed carry pistol into its handgun lineup, introducing the P365 Monday.
The P365 is a striker-fired 9mm boasting a double-stack design with 10+1 capacity. Garnering its name from its so-called ability to be carried 365 days a year, the pistol aims to bring a lightweight, compact design to an already packed market.
Measuring 1-inch wide and 5.8-inches long, the P365 sports a 3.1-inch barrel. Weighing 17.8-ounces unloaded, the new gun also offers an optional 12-round extended mag for even more round capability. Unlike competitor’s pistols on the market, the Sig doesn’t require the trigger to be pulled during takedown. Utilizing a narrowed magazine, the P365 permits the upper grip to fit the shooter’s thumb when in a firing grip.
“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,” said Ron Cohen, CEO and President of Sig Sauer, in a statement. “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
