Aim Surplus has introduced a new slide for one of the most popular carry pistols currently available on the market – the SIG Sauer P365. This new product is called AIM S3 SIG P365 Slide. Due to the cuts on the front portion of this slide, it weighs 7.3 oz which is lighter than the factory SIG slide.
The AIM S3 SIG P365 Slide is completely made in the USA. It is machined out of 17-4 stainless steel and has a “Star Destroyer Grey PVD coating“. The front and rear cocking serrations have a chevron style design. The lightening cutouts are on the sides and top of the front portion of the slide. There is also a relief cut on the left side of the slide.
I think it is safe to say that the SIG P365 is going to become even more popular than it is right now. And the reason I think so is the growing aftermarket support that includes not only small parts like sights and trigger mechanism components but also major parts like slides and frames/grip modules. To me, that is one of the indications denoting the long term success of any particular firearm.
I think if combined with the Icarus Precision aluminum grip module, which we talked about recently, you’ll get quite an interesting rig. The heavier weight of the grip module will be at least partially compensated by the lighter slide. As a result, you’ll end up with a gun which weight is shifted from the reciprocating parts to the frame. That, in its turn, should provide better controllability due to the lighter reciprocating mass and same or slightly higher overall weight. What do you think about this combination of parts?
