    I've always been loyal to S&W, but I gotta say Sig has been getting my attention. Just got my first Sig, a 229, but have held several 320s and 365 flavors that feel very very nice.

    Don't tell S&W, I'm sure they will be emotional that I am looking elsewhere lol.

    LOL and I ditched my 43X to go all in with the 365 and 320 rabbit hole. :)
    Ya I’m honestly considering it. The 10 rounds of the 43X is my only turn off.

    I already have an M17 which I like better then my other full size Glocks. I have a 228 and a 210 which are fun range toys… makes sense just to let the natural progression and just go full on retard SIG fan boy and jump on this 365 wagon. Just need to find the right one that can replace my 43X… I’ve handled a normal 365, but I want to try the X/XL then now this new Macro.

    This was me, lol.

    "Man, this P320 X5 Legion is amazing compared to my Glock 34. I'm gonna buy a second."

    "I have no interest in shooting Glocks in Production or SSP, I'm gonna buy a couple more P320s for iron sight work."

    "That MPX is amazing! I'm buying a couple for PCC. For my son, of course, not just me."

    "I bet I could use the P365 in CCP and BUG! Plus I'm getting this W&C license anyways."

    It's a good thing the MCX is way way too heavy for 3gun.

    Taron butler just did an interesting review of it. He pointed out that the slide comp idea drops velocity about 70fps...because it is a shorter barrel in that full sized slide. He then pointed out that for the 15% reduction in recoil, you could just shoot a softer load and do the same thing.

    Minor thread jack here. I have a P320 subcompact. Does the Wilson Combat frame make that big of a difference? Trying to figure out if it's worth it or I may sell it and get something different. (Possibly a P365 or a S&W Shield plus.

    i need to feel how it fits my hand but i thinking the macro is my next purchase. i need something to replace my S&W shield as i feel the capacity is lacking. i am not going to rush to buy it when it clears the HRG it will probably be a Christmas present to myself. hopefully by then the price will settle out and the rush to buy will be over. sig is definitely driving the handgun market and other manufacturers are trying to keep up

    I'll see if I can find the video I saw on the 365 sprectre comp. I believe it was half of the 70fps quoted reduction, but it was a reduction for sure.

    I shot my sprectre comp yesterday for the first time and it was certainly less snappy than my G43. I dont have a normal 365 to shoot side by side though for a direct comparison.

    For me, getting the comp slide was a matter of safety. The regular slide was too short(I just didn't pay attention at first) and I could see under stress, maybe my support hand thumb going in front of the muzzle, because I have some big mitts. The extra inch makes a difference(that's what she said). So, instead of getting a plain XL slide, why not get the comp?
    Plus, I foresee me using this thing 1 handed, and the recoil reduction(however much or little you think it is) would certainly help with multiple shots.

    The right side of the grass.
    ...I seem to point this grip angle better
    This is what has always ruined the Glocks for me; grip angle. I grew up on S&W double action revolvers and 1911s and just can't get a Glock to point well.

    Just to clarify this in my mind: The compensated slide is the same length as the XL, and the barrel is the same length as the P365/P365X? Is the XL style grip frame needed to make this conversion from a standard P365X to a compensated slide model??

    You can put the comp slide on the vanilla 365 grip module as well.

    No. I have one on a standard p365 grip module at the moment. Probably going to switch out to a X size grip though for a better grip

    Try an XL 12 rd mag with the sleeve/base pad for the standard grip, lined up they look the same.
    Or these on a 15 rd mag if you have a Wilson Combat grip module.

    I purchased the 365x which came with two twelve rd mags,a standard 365 grip, and one ten rd standard mag.

    Purchased 2 of these in straight config. When loaded in standard grip I cannot tell a difference between the standard grip and the xl grip. Carry with the 10rd mag for smaller easy to conceal, and have the 12 rd for mag change.


    Will probably later purchase larger magazine and base pad, but sig is expensive lol

    Yes. Also the XL guide rod.

    The 365 has the TD 12 round base plate.
