How do you like the bigger XL?
It's a fabulous pistol. With the 15-round magazine, superior firepower in a small package.
I am finding the XL to be my favorite plastic striker pistol of all time, though to be fair, I've got only 300 rounds through it. But it's so accurate, comfortable and the trigger is superb.
I took my P365 to the range today. I wanted to run some Speer Gold Dot 115 gr through it and test my new Armory Craft flat trigger.
The trigger is awesome! I used to get trigger slap that made my finger ache. That's gone. I also love how the flat trigger feels during the pull.
The pistol ran the Speer Gold Dots with no problem. Now it's fully going into carry rotation.
I'm amazed everything I shoot the P365 at how well it shoots. It's such a small pistol, yet it shoots more like a full sized pistol.
I run Speer Gold Dot 115's in mine
I’m also using 115 grain gold dots right now.
Even if nothing is wrong with the gun, $200 for a factory turn around seems a little outrageous.
That does sound excessive alright? Are they shooting real gold bullets?
Does anyone know if the XL model is available with the safety?
Why do you think you need one?
Since the "gun" is the trigger pack. perhaps Sig will sell a XL grip frame in the future? or a slide kit like HK does with the VP?
let someone else shoot that gun to eliminate the trigger puller.
Don't think I need to have a safety just prefer to have one and having a safety is what makes this model attractive to me.
It’s not, at least yet.
Doublehelix, I have nearly the same problem with my P365, I need to raise the front sight till it's halved by the tops of the rear sight to get on target using a combat hold. Also spoke to Sig, got the same, "if we find nothing wrong, you owe us". I was told they shoot a 3" triangle @ 15 yards, if all shots, (not sure how many), stay inside the triangle, they call it good. They also told me if I wanted, I could send in the slide and have them install a shorter front sight, (#6 is standard, they would put a #8 on), for the cost of the sight, ($60 if I remember right). Went to the range again recently, shot the gun off a rest @ 15 yards, yep, about 2-3 inches low. I'm considering changing both sights for a set of Speed Sights, they are squares instead of dots, lined up across point to point. They supposedly are set up so the front sight square will use the top point, (corner of the square), set up under your POA. I'm wondering if this is correct and put a set on, if I use a 'combat hold', (which I'm used to), maybe their sights would work perfect for my situation. Plus my eyes ain't getting any younger, might be a good move. Still thinking.
Drive the dots.
Open the Sig 365 manual and it shows the correct dot alignment.
Line up all three dots. Place them on target and pull trigger.
I know, reading is fundamental, I know how to use sights, how to align the dots, covering the intended target with the front sight is a combat hold, it's how I learned to shoot. It's how I shoot any of my other 6 hand guns at the range, IDPA, USPSA, 2 gun.
