The 'BIG' P365X is the same length, same width and only .5" taller than a standard P365, which to me, made all the difference in the world regarding fitting my hand. Only half of my pinky touched the regular 365 grip/mag combo.I don't understand the BIG 365's. Buy a 365 or a 320, no halfway in either direction
This is my personal debate in my head. I've actually held these two side by side and the P365, while measuring only slightly smaller, really FEELS smaller. I am worried that is is a bit frivolous considering I have the G48.Everyone keeps saying 365XL, macro, yada yada but this man already has a G48. Sure, he's getting a few more rounds capacity but it's not a "smaller" gun.
A regular P365 isn't THAT much smaller then a G48. Can you pocket carry it? Mmmm sure, kind of big for that role in my opinion.
If you already have a G48 I see no need for a 365 unless you're looking for the capacity and playing with modularity. If you want a pocket gun, I highly recommend a Ruger LCP Max.
Hate to break it to ya, but this is a P239. I don't think they have a 365 rainbow slide.
I agree with all of this, but l’d add that the 365X also includes the beaver tail on the grip (from the XL version). The pinky support plus that beaver tail support (on the web of muscle connecting the thumb to the index finger) makes the X fit my hand much better.The 'BIG' P365X is the same length, same width and only .5" taller than a standard P365, which to me, made all the difference in the world regarding fitting my hand.

I did draw the line at the 'XL' which is both .5" taller and .6" longer than a P365.
OK, I'll talk you out of it:
Get the P365X. Same length barrel/slide as the P365. The longer grip makes it feel more stable, the 12 round mag is flush fit and it's really about the same finished length as the P365 with the pinky-supporting magazine in it. Handle them both. Several of the guys here that started with a straight P365 went to the longer 'X/XL' grip frame by Wilson Combat and rave about how much better it feels.
