You Asked, They Listened! Icarus Precision ACE 365 V2.0 Aluminum Frames w/o Palm Swells

    Icarus Precision ACE 365 V2 (1)

    A couple of weeks ago, we talked about the Icarus Precision ACE 365 aluminum grip modules for SIG Sauer P365 pistols. Recently, the company came up with the second version of this frame that lacks the palm swells on the grip. The new grip module is called ACE 365 V2.0.

    While the concept of having an aluminum frame for everyone’s favorite new wonder pistol is really interesting, one feature that people disliked the most was the existence of palm swells on the grip. I think depending on your hand size/shape, palm swells may actually be a useful feature, however, I understand why many people find ugly the spherical dome shape of these swells with spades engraved on them.

    So, you asked and they listened! Icarus Precision’s ACE 365 V2.0 grip module has flat grip sides with a square texture machined on them. According to the company, this pattern is better than the more common diamond shaped checkering in that it ensures “more sure handling without the excessive bite That Dimond grips cause“.

    Other than the mentioned changes, all other features of the first model can be seen on the V2.0, too. These features include the more pronounced finger notches, extended beavertail, and the standard 1913 Picatinny rail section under the dust cover portion of the frame. Just like the previous model, the ACE P365 V2.0 is also machined out of a billet 7075 aluminum and comes with a Cerakote finish.

    Icarus Precision ACE 365 V2.0 is listed on the company’s website at an MSRP of $299. There are five Cerakote color options available: Black, Sniper Green, Midnight Bronze, Carbon Gray, and FDE.
