SIG Sauer Releases the Long-Awaited P365-380 Pistol

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. What are your thoughts on the new P365-380? Let us know down in the comments!

    I think .30 Super Carry would've been a more interesting and better choice. You can get downloaded 9x19 loads (or reload them for practice) that have reduced recoil on par with a .380. Heck, with just a change in recoil springs, you could probably practice with .380 (aka 9x17) and clean the barrel and run by 9x19 when you carry. Meanwhile, the increased capacity with .30SC would have offered a real difference to consider.

    This is the perfect gun for women and elderly. Folks with tiny little weak hands. Especially if it comes out as an XL version with 15 round mags. That would be the best home defense pistol on the market for these folks.
