I ama Sig fan. I bought a pre Cohen 226 in 357sug, and a 516 in 2015. They have both been flawless. 516 has over 5000 rounds. I did buy a 238, as my wife wanted a pistol. She went to a store and handled and she likednit, it was easy on racking too. We only have about a 1000 rounds through it. No issues so far, and its a 2016.
But, maybe all mine were Wednesday guns

Mine runs well so far. I have to say the stories of failures do put me off a bit. I'm going to torture test it one of these days just to boost my confidence in its reliability.
I haven't' been carrying it much since we moved back to Montana. I've been carrying the 10mm and 44mag much more since we are out hiking every weekend.

Got a P365XL today. Here's hoping for a flawless experience. I'll beat it up and report back good, bad, or ugly.

I bought the P365XL from Gander Outdoor yesterday for $551.00. I pick it up on Saturday and plan to run about 200 rounds through it after I pick it up. I'll post up my thoughts.

I brought mine to the range with 500 rounds of TUL steel cased ammo. At around 300 rounds a case got stuck in the chamber and wouldn't come out slide locked forward. I'll retry with brass cased ammo. We shall see.

The XL did a striker change. Supposedly to alleviate drag.
And that little black plastic piece. Well, when it falls out, disregard. But, SIG CS its not needed.. Hmm...

From another forum


I contacted SIG and got conflicting info on two different replies by the same rep. The first reply said that the small piece was needed to ‘provide pressure to the striker’ and should be kept in place. When I asked for a pic of the striker unit with the plastic piece in place I was told:

“I actually do not have a photo with that part installed. They have now removed it from assembly and slightly changed something else to keep the striker in place.”

Still shoot without the piece? Typical Sig gotta rush product and let end users beta test. Hope you get the problem fixed.

Wasnt my pistol. But, Sig CS told this person the wrong answer. They should have asked to have it back to repair or told him exactly what that piece was and its importance.

Has anyone tried the SAS model? The sight is built into the slide and all of the catch points have been flushed down to the slide as well.

Interesting design for minimalist EDC. Wondering if anyone has any experience with it. I have always been a Glock dude, but I like that it has no catch points.

On another forum I visit, they have allot of people liking it.. The older folks or people with astigmatism always have problems. But, its an interesting design, and I imagine you would have to rethink how you shoot.
Hickock45 did a video on it too. https://youtu.be/dO5OuTn5AEI

Agree, I see mixed reviews all over; like most weapons systems there is love and hate out there.

A learning curve like that could be problematic for some considering the radical departure from standard pistol sights, but the design is practical and sleek.

Thanks for the video link. I’ll check the local dealer and see if they have one I can take a look at.

I just bought a 365XL. We shall see how it runs when it gets here.. It felt much better in my hands than the slightly smaller 365.
It will be easier to conceal than my 226, but close to my wifes 238 which she picked and bought on her own. I really had no influence on her choice.

The new P356XL with the included Romeo Zero has me seriously looking at this now.

So what do you think? I've had mine for about a month after I sold my unused 365 to a friend. I was a little sketchy on the trigger out of the box but it's broke in to be better than it was initially. A little lube helped as it always does. Still not as good as my 320 trigger but good.

For a small pistol, it's very accurate and obviously very concealable.
