NEW SIG Sauer Pistol: The P365XL Set To Ship In June

    Earlier this evening, the internet was a flutter with images of a rumored new pistol from SIG Sauer. Well, TFB is here to let you know that the rumblings are true: the SIG Sauer P365XL will be available to consumers in just a few short weeks.

    A select group of TFB and TFBTV staff were lucky enough to handle the latest handgun to roll out the state-of-the-art factory in Newington, NH. Bridging a gap between it’s larger P320 kin and the original P365, the P365XL obviously wears a longer slide and barrel. But this new gun also offers a few additional upgrades over last year’s popular ultra compact concealed carry pistol. Let’s take a look.

    P365XL

     


    The P365XL includes a removable optics plate reminiscent of the larger/wider P320 line, offering shooters the capability to add a SIG Romeo or similar micro red dot/reflex optic. The Trigger has been upgraded to a flat blade with a 90 degree break. The XSeries grip module features an extended beavertail and a magwell that is flush-fit for CCW applications.

    There are a few other surprises related to the P365XL that SIG is not ready to discuss quite yet. But it’s safe to say that this new addition to the P365 family will be a solid performer. Look for dealers to start stocking their shelves in early June. Pricing is not currently available, but I’d imagine that retail numbers would be slightly north of current P365 prices. Stay tuned to TFB for further updates.
