Less Recoil and More Control. Those are the two hallmarks of the new SIG Sauer P365-380 pistol that was just announced by SIG. The SIG P365-380 offers users all the same great features as the standard 9mm P365 pistols, fits into the same holsters, uses the same accessories but does away with the increased recoil of 9mm in favor of the lighter recoiling .380 ACP cartridge – this opens up the platform to more users who are either recoil sensitive or have trouble manipulating a 9mm firearm.

SIG Sauer Releases the Long-Awaited P365-380 Pistol
The P365-380 offers all the same features as America’s #1 selling micro-compact pistol, now in the softer shooting 380 caliber resulting in easier handling and less felt recoil.
The long-awaited P365 chambered in 380 is finally here, creating a new, softer shooting, easier handling micro-compact option for everyday carry. It uses the same grip module and fire control unit as the popular 9mm version with a lightened slide and barrel making it completely compatible with all existing P365 holsters. With a Nitron® finished stainless slide, DLC barrel, and completely redesigned two-piece captured guide rod, the P365-380 is the most durable 380 micro-compact pistol on the market. Rigorously tested at SIG SAUER, the P365-380 was designed for all shooters, especially those with smaller hands and those who find the manipulation and recoil management of 9mm caliber pistols challenging.
- Nitron® finished optic-ready slide
- Shared FCU and grip module with P365 9mm
- Less recoil and reduced racking force
- Accessory rail
- (2) 10rd magazines w/ mag loader
It seems that despite the introduction of the new 30 Super Carry cartridge, many manufacturers are still taking advantage of the decreased recoil and lighter recoil springs found in .380 ACP firearms. Over the years, a few different firearms with lighter recoil or more easy to manipulate controls have been quite popular and the P365-380 seems to be catering to the same audience.
