Default Sig P365 Vs Glock

anyone have experience with the newest version?
Ive been carrying the G43 and G19 for a few years now, but the 43 gets the most carry time. Looking for more capacity and the 365 definitely fits the sweet spot.

I know the V1 had some FTE and FTF issues, but it sounds like these were resolved in the second go round.

Thoughts frim rim owners and those whove shot it are appreciated. Cracker?? I know youre a Glock guy too, but have any of your friends spent any time with them?

Liked shooting the P365 and very much liked the capacity, but they are having significant problems with the pistol. The most recent is broken firing pins

If you are Glock guy, stay with the G43. If not, look at the Walther PPSM2 which many find superior in a SS 9

We have Sigs and Glocks, and have 2 365s on order. Haven't heard a peep from brownells or the other shop. When it arrives, son will bring his G42 and I'll compare my micro 9 Kimber to it. Anybody actually receive a P365 yet?

I have about 1000 rds through mine and my son have a couple hundred through his. No issues. The gun feels right in my hand and I will put in my edc rotation. The firing pin issues have been well discussed.

Sig has chosen to vastly expand their product line with new models, optics, suppressors, ammunition, etc. etc. and has not addressed their QC issues which are growing with each new model released. The old West German P226's were some of the finest handguns ever produced, but they seem to be focused on mass marketing of mediocre products. For a firearms manufacturer in particular, this would seem to be a losing strategy

I consider myself a Sig guy, my daily is usually a P229 Elite but I've been enjoying my Canik lately. I'm a big guy so my opinion will be a bit skewed. My dad was an early adopter of the 320 w/ a romeo and now the 365, we've had issues with both. The 320 is currently back with Sig now for the drop-fire fix. The 365 has been plagued with FTFeed problems (no firing pin problems yet, fingers crossed). That being said, the 320 and 365 feel much more mass produced, they just don't feel the same as my 229, 226, etc. Maybe in due time the 365 will have it's kinks worked out but if it were my money (and my hands were smaller), Id be buying a G43 and some mag extensions.

For anybody wanting the P365 12 round option, just wait, Glock’s gonna have their version soon. They won’t be outdone.

I've been away from the 'puter most of the day working on the boat.
Thanks for the replies. I like the G43 extension options listed above and honestly never even considered them a viable option.
Sounds like I should give a few of those a try before making the switch.

I know you were very specific in asking however have you looked at HK vp9SK? Very nice to handle and abouth the same size as glock 43. It comes with standard 10 rounds but you can get a 15 round extension. Can post a picture if you like.

That would be my choice too. You already own the gun and if it works well for you just buy an extension or two for more capacity... 8 rounds of 9mm is descent with the plus 2 and not much grip lengthening .

Read where the Taran extension's have failed to load certain loads of JHP's on several instances. Overall, has great reviews as an extension. Anybody had any issues like this on your Glock 43 ?

I picked up my 365 last week. I've run through quite a few rounds with the demo 365 at Colonial, but haven't fired my own yet. I was told the demo hasn't had so much as a hiccup and has been run continuously since it came in a couple weeks back. I was really surprised at my accuracy, every bit as good as my Glock 19 and extremely comfortable with the longer mag. I know you're interested in the additional capacity but I wanted the capacity AND the smallest comfortable 9mm frame I could comfortably conceal. Being a thin guy, the 365 is noticeably smaller than the 19 and even the S&W Shield I was debating between. Hopefully the operational issues noted above are worked out as I'm hearing from those in the know. Time will tell. Good luck.

I use the Taran + 2 plates on all three of my mags.
Have run maybe two hundreds rounds through them since installation. The ammo has been a hodge-podge of whatever I've collected over the years (all of it hollow point) and I haven't experienced a failure.
Admittedly two hundred rounds hardly proves fail-safe but I have confidence they'll perform as needed.

You'll like the added capacity as well as the added grip length. They completely changed the feel and handling of my 43 for the better.
I got the blue ones because they have a calming effect on whoever I'm pointing my pistol at.

Im not gonna give whoever im pointing at a chance to see anything but a flash. And of course, warning shot is always second.

I've been really thinking about the G43 or 42. I've shot the 43 before and it's a nice sub compact, but I was thinking about the 42 for a deep concealed or lightweight holster carry option for the summer. I have yet to hold a G42. Is it that much smaller than the 43? I do like the option of the baseplate extension on the 43.
