NRA Gun of the Week: SIG Sauer P365 Pistol

by
posted on February 24, 2018
American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach was one of the first to fully evaluate the SIG Sauer P365 pistol introduced at the 2018 SHOT Show. The micro-compact handgun chambered for 9 mm Luger, which weighs in at about 18 ozs., sports a 3” barrel, and is about 1” at its widest point, was built around a modified double-stack magazine that holds 10 rounds of 9 mm Luger, with an available extended magazine that packs in 12 rounds. The inclusion of tritium-infused SIG X-Ray3 Day/Night sights is an indication that SIG thought of just about everything in designing this new carry gun. But there are more reasons this pistol is getting a lot of attention—including cover-story status for the April 2018 American Rifleman. Learn more in this week's NRA Gun of the Week video with Joe Kurtenbach.
