SIG Sauer P365XL

P365XL

The internet is abuzz this week just after the USCCA's Concealed Carry Expo with the announcement of SIG Sauer's newest family member, the P365XL. Sig's newest pistol is based on their ever in demand P365, but with a few key upgrades.

The XL is a bigger version of the micro compact 9mm pistol, with a 3.7 inch barrel and a grip extended out to accept 12 round mags (and hopefully bigger) from the factory.

Other cha cha cha changes (you know you sang that) include the addition of a removable rear sight plate to install an optic, a flat trigger, and an extended beaver tail.

It looks like the overall width was also slightly increased from 1.0″ (26mm) on the P365 to 1.1″ (28mm) on the P365XL, which may be because of the optics ready nature of this pistol.

Here are some more stats on this X-Series pistol:

We don't have an MSRP just yet, but are going to assume that it will cost at least a little more than the current P365 offerings. Heck, as of this writing the SIG Sauer website doesn't even show this option, though we are expecting that it will start shipping sometime next month.

One thing I'm wondering about, is the magazine. I'm curious if there will be an extended version of the mag for this gun, like a 14 or 15 rounder, that may also work in the original P365. If there is modularity there, that can only be seen as a win. Then again, it is slightly wider, so they may or may not be interchangeable. We'll follow it.

Make sure you stay tuned because I'm sure one of us will be getting a P365XL to do a review on, to see if it is worthy as a concealed carry piece. You can find Riley's original P365 review, here, if you're interested to see what he thinks about it. It's very long, and very in depth–but an excellent read.

    Shoot!!!!
    I just bought the P365 and i’m waiting on delivery.
    Now Look! I got to have the XL,
    So there goes another grand.
    Only because you got to have all of the new accessories.
    By the way Sig’s web site just announced a 15 round Magizine avaliable now $49.00.

    Thanks,

      I just got my 15-round mag today to try. It is almost obnoxiously long, but there’s something quite satisfying about having 16 rounds in such a little gun. Sure, it’s likely not to be concealed with the longer mag, but I think it will be great as a backup spare magazine!

    Have P365, pretty please with it. I see no need for a longer, deeper, heavier version. Just buy a P2022 if you feel the need for a Sig in poly with more rounds….

      Or the P320 Compact.

      But I am actually excited about the idea of a P365 with a longer barrel. That was always a disappointment for me with the original P365 was the very short barrel. My plan is to get the XL model and swap out the grip module with the standard P365 grip module.

      Same great concealable compactness of the P365 in the grip area, longer barrel of the P365 XL will improve shootability and accuracy with the longer sight radius. The longer barrel will not impact concealability, and since I carry in the appendix position anyway, the longer length will actually aid in comfort and concealability.
