    How many rounds have you got through the Sig? They told me to stay away from the P365 because once you put around a 1000 rounds through them, they break and aren't reliable.
    I’ve got 3600 rounds through my mid-2022 P365X (all stock) with no mechanical issues. I do a basic field strip and clean every 200 rounds.

    I have not found any credible (first hand and specific) accounts of any triggers “breaking” in P365’s. There were some reports of a trigger return spring issue with the 1st gen P365’s, but they were resolved through Sig CS and 2nd gens didn’t have the issue. (Issue was with the length of the spring end hook).

    Ask the range rep what the specific issue is with each of those guns and the birthdate of each. Without that information, he is just a guy telling you a story.

    Here is a good review after 8500 rounds:

    What you're saying is inline with what I've been hearing. It was a shock when they told me to stay away from the P365. It's not like they didn't carry them. They had them for sale.

    I read in another thread the difference is the angle of the dangle, or something similar, like 'what knuckles to you use to punch the...'never mind.

    I've got a few P365/P365Xs and two of them have at least 1k each. Nothing broke yet. Seems like all I buy anymore is 9mm blasting ammo... I have another one I carry with about 300 through it. This thread makes me hungry...I might get another one, you know, in case one of the others breaks.
    It seems like it was a bad lot or series. They all seemed to come around the same time. Especially for the tritium sights. Maybe bad adhesive or something.
    I'm no expert. I don't own any so...

    Plus, the modularity of the platform! Wilson Combat grip modules are a cheap and easy way to configure…
    I had no idea. I have a P365X in 7 day jail. After seeing your comment, I watched a video on changing grip modules. Looks super easy, really cool!

    I would definitely go this route, as I hate the Sig frames.

    How hard is it to get a holster to fit the new frame or are the holsters almost always compatible?
    The grip module doesn’t affect holster fit. The differences are in the portion that is outside of the holster.

    Thanks... It's not got me wondering if a Holster for a Glock 17 will work with a PSA Dagger.. NVM.. Probably won't since the slide and trigger guards are different.

    Best to use a holster designed for the specific firearm to assure proper fit.

    Closer to a G19 but not perfectly. There are a few holsters out there for the Talon, but you won't find a huge variety, as of yet.

    Folks, even without ever shooting the P365, is $500 too good of a deal that I shouldn't pass it up? It's the P365 TacPac, so you get a holster and a couple extra mags.

    Thanks!

    Have you considered a P365 SAS, designed for carry.

    SIG Anti Snag (SAS)

    SIG Anti-Snag, or “SAS,” describes specific design features of certain SIG SAUER handgun models that optimize them for concealed carry. SIG Anti-Snag can include some of the following features: an extremely low-profile slide catch lever, a reduced takedown lever, a dehorned slide, and an FT Bullseye sight embedded into the slide. These SAS handguns are built with reduced exterior features to decrease the possibility of snagging on clothing or holsters. No iron sights, no external takedown lever, and no slide catch lever protruding from the frame means a cleaner, smoother draw in self-defense situations.

    365 mags average 50/60 a piece, the holster isn't anything special - but it'll get you going. At 5 bills, it's definitely worth considering.

    The SAS variant, has pros/cons to it. It's a unique sighting system, that while does reduce the odds of snagging, does take some getting used to and can limit your options if you ever want to go to a slide mounted optic.

    Definitely recommend that you get your hands on some of the guns - shoot them, if possible - before committing to a buy. Last thing you want to do is spend hard earned money on something that you later don't feel was a good fit for you.

    $500 is a fair deal for the package. If it is a 365X, that price is a steal.

    The mags would have to be blocked.

    The 15-rounders were discontinued by Sig, so if anything that's a bonus because then you get to use the 17-round mag with the adapter.

    Not necessarily disagreeing with you there. :)

    I thought it was a cool variant when they first hit the streets, but after a few years, and dealing with customers that have them and want to go slide mount optics (among other things) - I'm seeing some of the drawbacks to that particular variant.
