We here at TFB have been following the P365 XL since news of its launch broke back in May. Well, we can now confirm that SIG Sauer’s latest pistol is now shipping. The P365 XL has a longer barrel, frame and slide but retains the original P365’s grip size adding only 1/2 inch to the height of the gun. The new pistol’s barrel is 0.6in longer than the standard P365’s and its frame also has a slightly elongated beavertail for improved ergonomics. It feeds from a 12 round magazine for a 12+1 capacity (15 round extended magazines are also available) and chambers 9x19mm.
SIG Sauer have also put together a new video explaining the P365 XL’s features:
Here’s SIG Sauer’s press release on the launch of the XL in full:
SIG SAUER, Inc., is continuing to redefine the expectations for Everyday Carry with the introduction of the P365 XL pistol by combining the capacity, control, and shootability of a full-size pistol, with the concealability of a micro-compact. The P365 XL, much like its predecessor, is set to redefine Everyday Carry. Again.
“When the P365 was introduced it hit the market by storm, and was a game-changer when it comes to Everyday Carry, by delivering unprecedented capacity in a micro-compact size. The P365 instantaneously became the top-selling pistol, and one of the most award-winning pistols in history,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “With the P365 XL we have once again redefined Everyday Carry by delivering 12+1 capacity, or 15+1 capacity, in a highly concealable, compact profile while bringing many of the XSERIES features to the P365 that are extremely popular and sought after by consumers.”
The SIG SAUER P365 XL is a 9mm striker-fired pistol, featuring the XSERIES P365 grip module with an integrated carry magwell and extended beavertail, a flat trigger with a 90-degree break, and a 3.7” barrel for increased accuracy while retaining concealability. The P365 XL features an optics-ready slide, compatible with the new SIG SAUER Electro-Optics ROMEOZero and RMSc Optics, comes equipped with X-RAY3 Day/Night sights, and ships with two 12-round magazines (15-round magazines available separately.)
