Popular for its size and ease of concealed carry, the P365 has only been available in one caliber. That is, until now. SIG Sauer recently released the new P365-380, adding a .380 Auto option to the striker-fired pistol. As a result, is an easier handling micro-compact for those who have a harder time dealing with the higher power of a 9mm.
The SIG Sauer P365-380
The P365-380 uses the same modular polymer grip module as the original P365. However, it now uses a lightened slide, housing the 380 barrel. Like the rest of the P365 line, the slide features an optic-ready cut, compatible with the ROMEOZero Elite or any optic with the same footprint.
Sitting atop the stainless-steel slide are dovetail SIGLITE night sights, for increased target acquisition in low light situations. Correspondingly, the sights allow for effective co-witnessing when in the proper configuration.
The Nitron finished slide also includes forward and rear cocking serrations, for easy manipulation under duress. Additionally, the Nitron finished slide, DLC barrel, and redesigned two-piece captured guide rod make the P365-380 highly durable.
The P365-380 shares the same fire control unit and grip module as all standard P365s. As a result, it is compatible with all of the same accessories, such as flat triggers, FOXTROT lights, XSeries grip modules, etc. However, it ships with a curved striker trigger.
Each P365-380 comes with 2 ten-round magazines (one flush fit and one extended). In addition, a magazine loader is also included.
“The SIG SAUER P365 is the most popular concealed carry pistol on the market today. We have shipped millions of these pistols and until now it has only been available in one caliber,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The P365-380 uses the same grip module and fire control unit as the legacy P365 with a lightened slide, a 380 barrel, and a lighter recoil spring making it easier to rack for an overall exceptionally smooth handling experience. This pistol was designed for everyone but is an ideal option for shooters with smaller hands, as well as those who find the manipulation and recoil management of larger caliber pistols challenging.”
The SIG Sauer P365-380 is available now with an MSRP of $579.99. For more info, please visit SIGSauer.com.
