the latest craze is putting the 365 slide on the 365XL grip module = perfect gun. Lots of videos on youtube reviewing it. Sig had better crank up production because the XL grip is sold out

I joined the crazed. Got my XL grip this afternoon. Too busy and too tired tonight to swap the fire control unit. Hope to sneak a few minutes in the morning to do the swap.

Gotta ask why? The longer barrel is no harder to conceal, has a longer sight distance, and higher velocity. It's the grip length that adds to concealment issues. What are you gaining?

It's a $40 experiment. Don't want another gun, just want a little longer grip that fills my hand. Not concern about losing concealability, it's still a small gun, a lot smaller than a baby 1911.

Yah I don't get it, the 365 is only cool because it's small. And for grip length the 12 round mags make them the same height.

Dale Fricke Archangel, appendix... Extremely comfortable and conceals nicely. I really like the Archangel appendix for my EDC rotation (VP9sk and occasionally still an XDs as well).

The problem with the 12-round extended mag in the P365 frame is that fast mag changes are problematic. Your hand overhangs the frame and interferes with dumping the old mag out and reinserting a fresh mag. Having the longer XL frame solves that problem.

Personally I prefer to carry my P365 with the 10-rounder and flat baseplate simply to get the smallest profile possible for pocket carry. If I were to hip carry I'd use the pinky-rest floorplate and then use the 12-rounder for my reload. Of course I am a very short individual and need the smallest possible package for concealment. Most guys are over 6' these days and find it much easier to carry a pistol with a longer grip.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

For those who are using the 10 round magazine you might want to try NDZPerformance.com. They sell a mag extender for the 10 rounders, you donít get more rounds but they give a better grip. I have put them on both of mine and it does help.

Why bother, get a 12 round mag, 'mag extender' included, no extra cost!

I bought both of mine before the version with the safety was available. I wanted one with it, but at the time SIG kept pushing back the release date and I finally got fed up waiting. Maybe if there's a sale after all the current madness dies down I might have to get a third one.

My P365 is still a 'pocket gun' for me, I bought a Milt Sparks Summer Special holster, wow, this thing is super easy to carry with that combo. Gotta look into getting a 12 round mag since holster carry allows that. Not sure it will become a 'main' carry, I'm still more accurate with my EMP4 and 5" 1911....wonder if the triggers have a little to do with the accuracy. The P365 is quite accurate IF I take my time, I guess single action triggers have made me a bit lazy. I guess I'll have to go to the range and practice some more, maybe an IDPA match or three will help!

My main CCW is the P365, no safety, 12 rd mag, in a Concealment Express kydex holster carried left appendix. Secondary if I can't do the main one is a Springfield 911 .380, the cheapest one, in the DeSantis pocket holster. The 365 actually fits in there too if I really wanted to be carrying that gun. Both guns have backup mags carried in a pocket--15 rds for the 365, 7 for the 911.

Both guns have grip enhancement. The 365 has a Hogue grip sleeve, and the 911 has an aftermarket Hogue rubber grip. I can shoot either with the stock grips, but these improvements and mag pinky extensions really make them work for me.

I like appendix because:
it is easy to carry there
gives max control over the weapon
you can't fall on your back or side and hurt yourself with it
it conceals pretty well there
super-easy to access while in your car.

Perfectly safe to do this if the index finger knows where it's supposed to be.

My problem with handgun fit is the opposite of most people. I have small hands so I end up having to adapt to just about any handgun I pick up. OTOH, because of that I'm actually able to pick up about any HG and be comfortable with it.

Have both the P365 and the XL model. Love them both but carry the smaller version in a Black Hawk "Junkdrawer" tuckin holster. Works great. Use cross draw position.

Because mine came with 2 twelve rounders and 2 ten rounds. Didn’t want to throw the ten rounders away and I like more grip purchase than the two ten rounders provided. Oh yeah I did purchase 3 more twelve rounders.
