Someone posted a good video review of a 365 that sheared it firing pin at 2k rds. Video point was that he always carries with the 12 rd mag cause the 10 is a 2 finger grip. If u use the 12 does itequalize grip length?

I carry the P365 daily with the 12 rounder. It conceals well and I personally have had no reliability issues with it after 500+ rounds. I have no experience with the 43x

The 12 rd adds very little to grip length. I notice little difference.

I have a G 43 with the TLR6 and holster for it. Nice rig. I use Strike Industries +2 extensions. For back up and thr standard Glock 43 mag with the pinky extension for carry on my Utah permit when out of state. It not only conceals well, but shoots excellent.

I have the taran tactical bullet 3 bullet mag extentions for the 43 and love them. Makes it a 11 round firearm with one in the chamber.

I also have the p365 with the 12 round mags. I see little difference in shooting or concealment but when I go out in the morning I always pick the 43. I think the reason is that I have actually shot over 100,000 rounds in various glocks without a hickop. I know I can trust the glock but the sig hasn't had a problem through the first 1000 rounds.

A P365 replaced my previous G27 as my EDC pistol. Have shot the G43, and handled a 43x yesterday. The 43x is large enough it's almost in another category, feels more like a skinny single stack G19 than a tall G43, the 1/2" difference in muzzle length isn't immediately noticeable, especially in a holster, but the grip length feels MUCH larger, at 5" tall it's huge compared to the P365's 4" flat mag, and 4.5" 12rd mag. The 365 also has the floorplate angled forward relative to the slide, gives more finger room with less "heel" on the backstrap to conceal better. IMO the 365 has a better trigger, better sights, and obviously more ammo in a smaller grip, but it is also more versatile. The 365, like the G43 can be a pocket pistol, but with a lot more capacity, then with a 12rd mag it fills the G43X, and arguably the G19s role as a belt pistol, but is smaller and lighter than either. Only real downside was the recall on early models for feeding and firing pin issues, and some claim it is more prone to jam. Mine hasn't had any problems over nearly 1K rounds for the last 6 months I've carried and practiced with it, and seems most have had similar experiences.

this is the best I have found to show a comparison of the 365 vs the 43X
