P365 stainless frames ??????

Can any of the P365 owners confirm the following specs ????

Sig and other online stores are showing the frame material is stainless. I'd always assumed it was some type of polymer.

Also...is anyone running a light they recommend on their P365 ?

Considering trying one of these and need to go to a local gun shop and check them out.

Mine, model 365-9-BXR3 is a poly frame. Manufacturing date of March 2019. I have seen this on advertised on a LGS site and am a bit confused. Maybe what they are trying to convey is the color of the poly frame is SS. It would kind of take away from the concept of being a light concealable package.
BTW, it’s a great little way to make 9mm brass.

I am sure what is being referenced as being stainless is the fcu, or fire control chassis.

What JimLob65 said the trigger assembly or fire control group is the serial numbered part and it is the steel frame they are talking about.

Don't know about that but mine does stick to one of those magnets that hold your pistol in place.

Model 365-9-BXR3

The magnet may be picking up the barrel itself, I don't really know but it does stay in place and pulls very strong to the magnet.

There are three basic components to the P365

1. The grip module is polymer. This part hold the "frame"

2. The frame is steel and contains the trigger, springs, sear, etc. It is the serial numbered part of the P365. It is removable from the grip module.

3. The slide is also steel, it holds the barrel, strikers and associated springs and parts.

The 17oz. overall weight was your first clue that they were not talking about an all-stainless grip frame.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. 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.
